Navigating dressing for the colder seasons can be tricky, especially if you are based in the UK the unpredictability of day-to-day weather changes. The season change in the UK comes with a unified sentiment of doom and gloom that will accompany us for the next few months, but I see it as a time of more nights in than out. 

Whether it’s thrown over your favorite t-shirt as you work from home or over a dress for brunch. Returning to a favorite piece of cozy knitwear every year is a feeling that is truly unmatched. Going to a pumpkin farm or visiting your local coffee shop for a hot chocolate wouldn’t be the same without a knit jumper. Here's a guide to buying knitwear this Autumn.

Everyone has had a fair share of mishaps with sweaters - stretching out, pilling… The important thing in finding your perfect piece of knitwear is ensuring you are buying pieces made of good materials such as cotton, wool, and cashmere. In the colder seasons, it’s better to choose cashmere or wool as they will keep you warmer. A timeless classic style of knitwear that is a staple in everyone’s wardrobe is a solid-colored crew neck sweater. A crewneck can be thrown over a pair of trousers for work, jeans for a cinema trip, or a lovely midi dress - the options are endless.
