Autumn Knits

Autumn is officially on its way – it may even be here – so it’s time for autumn knits. Who doesn’t love a jumper? There’s something comforting and cosy about slipping on a sweater, no?

Yes, summer is great, but autumn is probably even more beautiful on a good day (we don’t mean when the wind is howling and the rain is pouring down). Autumn knits, a long skirt, boots, a hat, glove and scarves and you feel autumnal, no? Throw on a coat when winter comes, and you’re rocking the autumnal look.

Autumn knits come in all shapes and sizes, patterns and styles. This season sees an over-sized autumn knits trend, but you don’t have to go big and slouchy.

Another trend this year for your whole wardrobe, never mind your autumn knits, is grey. Grey can look fantastic when paired with autumnal pastels, black or contrasting shades of grey.

Weekly Wishlist – is it summer?

We all love fashion, and we all love a wishlist – so here’s a weekly wishlist with a few of our favourite fashion picks. We’ll be doing this for the next few weeks, so make sure you pop in each week if you want to see what’s on our summer weekly wishlist.

And well, is it summer? The calendar says it is, but the weather sometimes doesn’t agree! So, this weekly wishlist for summer is a mix of holiday musthaves, cosy coverups, and well, a few frivolous, fun items of course!

First up is a big old tribal statement necklace from New Look (£12.99). We love the sheer size of this. Wear it with a simple vest dress or vest top, and add an instant summery statement to your outfit. Who can resist this cute little mouse purse from H! by Henry Holland at Debenhams (£15). So cute, and perfect for your holiday change!

Weekly Wishlist summerThese Hush Puppies @ Schuh wedge sandals (£60) are stylish and comfortable. You must have these in your summer wardrobe! And GAP’s chambray top (£34.95) screams Californian 1970s to us – team with frayed denim shorts, those Schuh wedge sandals and a floral headband and you’re there.

Need a cover-up cardigan with that tea-dress in the British summer? Of course you do! Look no further than this cute bow detail cardy from JOY (£30) – it comes in a variety of shades, but we love this mustard yellow. Florals are big news this summer, but it’s a trend you can carry through to autumn/winter if you buy wisely. Florals on black will do just that. This cute wrapover blouse from New Look (£17.99) is a hit.

weekly wishlist summer 2New in at H&M, this cute little matchy two-piece (top, £24.99, skirt, £19.99) is another one of those buy now, wear now, wear later pieces – the cotton jersey will work for autumn too. We love it – the pencil skirt and slouchy short-sleeved top will look brilliant alone as well.

This super-smart suit from French Connection, left,  (jacket, £120, trousers, £89) is perfect summer to autumn work-wear. But how cute would it look at a wedding as well, dressed up with a hat, some killer heels and a cute clutch. And finally, we’re back to the cosy cover-up for summer with our absolute fave – this killer cardigan from H&M (£49.99). It’s long, slouchy, a great neutral shade, looks great belted, or not and will see you right through a British summer into autumn!
