Well there’s no denying it’s officially sweater weather (in the U.K. anyway) and after getting all of my heavier knits out of storage and reviving those that I could, (with the de-bobbler) I have ended up buying a few new pieces. Chunky knits and cardi-coats are my go-to at this time of year.
Here are my latest picks (click image for link):
I’ve had to replace some of my cream knitwear and this season I’ve bought some from French Connection. I ended up buying both the long-line chunky knit and their Temperley/Zimmerman style, slightly puff-sleeved knit (I sized up twice in this one).
I’m also loving more boxy-shaped knits and I bought the chunky poloneck from Anthropologie (again, I sized up x2) in navy with teal edging (it’s also available in a dark red and grey).
The other jumper I bought and am completely in love with (so-much-so that I bought a spare) is this striped, ribbed, boxy Jigsaw knit. It’s the kind of jumper you can wear all-year-round. I’ve bought quite a few lighter-coloured jumpers because it’s nice not to get bogged down in loads of dark colours when it’s grey outside.
As well as cream, brightly-coloured knits are still just as important in my Winter wardrobe this year. They are the perfect mood-boosters and I still think Ganni does these best (Asos also does some great lower-priced options). If you love the Ganni ones as much as I do it’s worth knowing that The Outnet has a few at 50% off at the moment (click here). I have three of these chunky knits (one striped and two of the Juilliard knits – one in pink and one in yellow). I’m really tempted to buy a red one too.
As usual quite a bit of cashmere features in this category. N Peal is still my favourite cashmere brand for chunky cashmere knits. The quality of their cashmere is amazin (hence the hefty price tag).
I do think knitwear (even that on the high-street) has got more expensive. It’s always something I look for in the sales – particularly when it comes to cashmere and really special, unique pieces. My favourite knits in my wardrobe (aside from the Ganni ones) are my ones from Etro. Admittedly they’re not to everyone’s taste as they tend to be quite colourful and bohemian but I adore them.
What will you be buying this Winter?
