Autumn is definitely here. There’s a distinct chill in the air in the evening – time to reach for those cosy knits! It’s not all bad – you get to treat yourself to a gorgeous new jumper. Possibly the most versatile item you can own, a jumper is a wardrobe staple, but it doesn’t have to be baggy, shapeless and oversized.
Choose from patterned, plain, chunky, cable, fine-knit, light, dark, embellished, big, small, tight, loose – you name it, there are cosy knits to suit all tastes!
Black and white keep jumpers simple, or give them an edge. Stripes, graphic patterns, motifs and logos all work well in monochrome tones.

Embellished knits make great evening wear on a cold night out when cosy knits are definitely required. Shoulder or neck embellishments look great – best against bold colours or simple patterns.
