Autumn’s cosiest knits

You’ve been taking care of everyone all summer long and now it’s time to take care of yourself. What better way than to treat yourself to some serious snuggle time in some of autumn’s cosiest knits?

 We’re seriously falling for the long shapes and slightly boxy oversized knits that are de rigueur for AW14. Layer the longer cardigans over a silk blouse or lightweight tee. The sweaters look great by themselves tucked into a skirt or over jeans. It’s simple to work a preppy back-to-work look by adding a crisp white shirt underneath and for added weekend warmth layer over a denim shirt with a scarf. We asked Fiona to pick some of her favourite knits from this season’s collection.

Top row from left:

1) Luther pullover by 360 Sweater – Skulls take on a cool urban edge with 360 Sweater’s, Luther, side-buttoned, charcoal tunic sweater; but don’t let the imagery fool you, this sweater has a soft side as it’s made of 100% cashmere. Dropped shoulder seams add to the off-duty contemporary look.

2) Dagny by Custommade – Life is short, wear sequins… add sparkle to your everyday wardrobe with this super soft cashmere mix sweater, it’s also available in black and grey.

3) Giuliana by By Malene Birger – Fi’s personal favourite! You can’t go wrong with this ¾ length sleeve gold animal print sweater. The modern way to wear neutral is to pair it with the seasons stand out colours of navy and maroon, add skinny jeans for a relaxed look or leather leggings to unleash your inner animal. Size down as this one comes up a little large.

Middle row from left:
1) Declic cardi by Des Petits Hauts – Snuggle into the shawl collar of this no button cardi; it will double as a coat in September and October and looks fantastic belted over a shirt. Also available in rust / brown.

2) Buckle Jumper by Second Female – Soft, grey and oh so wearable. This marled knit will look beautiful paired with the Maison Scotch tailored pink Boucle coat.
