Wrap up in Autumn Knitwear

With Autumn definitely here and the days getting shorter all I want to do is hibernate like a little bear at home and wrap up in lots of layered knitwear to keep warm. Unfortunately the daily chores of life stop the staying at home part but one plus is I get to wear lots of snuggly knitwear and look fashionable at the same time. Last weekend I rearranged my wardrobe to see what knitwear I could still wear and to my surprise I had quite a lot of jumpers, dresses and cardigans that I still like but in my eyes there's always room for more! Even though my bank balance doesn't agree...

Having been searching online and in store I have found lots to buy, so thought I would share with you my favourites below including the brand Esprit who have a whole "knit news" section. They are more premium than any of the other clothing brands I have listed but you pay for better quality and with knitwear you want something that lasts a long time.


I love to wear jumpers that have some kind of print or pattern unless its like the sleeveless one I have picked out below because you could wear this over a denim or white shirt.


Cardigans can almost become a jacket if made of thick enough material and theres nothing better than layering them over shirts and t-shirts with a skirt or jeans for a casual daytime look.


If petite like me then these wraps can swamp you so I would recommend trying one on in store but I love that these can be designed reversable so you have two looks in one and checks are quite a common print of late.


A jumper dress is my daytime and workwear essential item they are great for wearing with tights, a scarf, long boots and a big coat. You really cant go wrong when styling one of these.

1. Esprit Jacquard Knit Dress £45
2. Boohoo Grey Turtle Neck Dress £12

Last but not least dont forget to accessorise not only to make your outfit look more fabulous but gloves, hats and scarves will keep your hands, head and neck warmer.

Top Tips for keeping warm this Autumn

1. Invest in some cosy socks
2. Throw on a wrap, shawl or poncho
3. Keep your head and ears warm with a hat
4. If you're wearing tights put some over the knee socks on too
5. Layer Layer and Layer again
6. Layer a thermal vest underneath your clothing
7. Oversized sweatshirt over a thinner jumper
8. No tights? Over the knee boots are the answer
9. Wear thin gloves under thicker gloves
10. Invest in a parka coat with a hood

Supermarket Fashion

When I go food shopping you will always find me wondering off towards the clothes section to my boyfriends dismay but what's a girl to do when she's a shopaholic? Most of the leading supermarkets now including Tesco's with their Florence and Fred range and Sainsbury's with their TU range stock the latest fashion trends at affordable prices which is another bonus! So when I popped into my local Aldi store the other day I didn't expect to see one of their special buys being a burgundy check skirt for just £10. Not only this they had faux fur gilet's (£14.99), Chelsea boots (£14.99) and a felt hat (£7.99). I had to stop myself from buying the whole range! I have seen Aldi sell basics and skiing clothing before but not fashionable clothes like this I can't wait to see what clothing they design in the future.

The checked skirt itself is fully lined, super soft and made with 5% wool may I add. A fashion bargain at it's best and also available in navy. When thinking of what to style with the skirt I immediately remembered I purchased a pink silky blouse (£6) from Primark that I knew would compliment the burgundy skirt and I have burgundy ankle boots from Dorothy Perkins last year. And because its AW16 I had to throw in one of the biggest trends of the season - a suede jacket from La Redoute. (Similar here)

The Complete Look

Taking these photo's with my friend Hannah (Facebook page here) made me feel very Autumnal - Stratford upon Avon has some beautiful scenery.

Autumn Fashion at StyleWe

Back in July I wrote a blog post about fashion website StyleWe and items I would love to own but now I am looking at their new collections for Autumn by their independent fashion designers. Colour trends for Autumn that StyleWe are focusing on include black, camel, red and green. Out of these colours my favourite at Autumn time has to be camel because it's so chic and easy to wear, I am currently on the hunt for a camel coat.

Coats and Jackets

When I am buying a coat or jacket for Autumn I like to have every occasion covered including evening wear, casual wear and when its raining (we have plenty in England) so a hood is essential. I think as shoppers we tend to spend a little more on this essential wardrobe item, below are my favourites from StyleWe.


I love wearing jumpers and cardigans again they are so comfy and so easy to style with a pair of skinny jeans, tucked in a skirt or even thrown over a shirt. I recently got my jumpers out of storage and didn't realise how many I had. Below are my favourite knitwear pieces from StyleWe.

 When I wear dresses in Autumn/Winter I always look for ones I can wear to work and outside of work so they need to be to the knee or below and I always like to wear them with black tights. Long sleeves and cute patterns are always a bonus, these ones I have picked out from StyleWe would be perfect.


Because of the weather being a lot chillier at night when I go out with friends or date night with the boyfriend it's so easy to throw on a skirt with a nice top. I usually opt for a midi style or to the knee, which StyleWe have plenty of online including the silver skirt which is very suitable for Christmas parties.

Autumn Launch at Aspire Style

On Thursday Aspire Style invited me to their Autumn Launch event in their Stratford upon Avon store which included a glass of prosecco on arrival and 15% off everything plus a free gift when you spend over £20. Having previously worked with the brand on their personalised jewellery launch I absolutely love their cute and fun products, so I have taken lots of photo's while at the event which will hopefully inspire your Christmas gift shopping list or if you just want to get a little something for yourself.

Girly Gifts


Quite a few of Aspire's products feature cute quotes in an array of colours including notebooks, ceramic dishes, coasters, make up bags and manicure sets which are perfect girly gifts but I particularly love these bunny ears pom poms that you can attach to your bag.
Another gift range they have features vintage maps which travel bloggers or people who just love to travel will particularly love. There is lots to choose from in this travel range including luggage tags, notebooks, a money box, passport holder, travel mug and a hip flask.

Printed Mugs

Mugs are a necessity in the Autumn because if your like me then you want to snuggle up with a warm cup of coffee or tea and its even better if they are cute too!The Alphabet spotty mugs (£13.99) look super elegant and the kawaii friends mugs (£9.99) are quirky and fun. My favourite mug is the panda.

With so many prosecco quotes out there my favourite being "Prosecco is always the answer" of which I have to agree, Aspire Style have plenty of gifts to choose from including prosecco flavoured lip balm, mugs and travel mugs for when your on the go.

I purchased "The world is yours to see" vintage map glasses case (£5.99) and some gifts for my sister's birthday which I can't show in case she reads my blog and because I spent over £20 I was given this lovely navy bird scarf.

PS. You can still get 10% online and in store with my code Liz
