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

Have you bought any lovely knitwear recently?

  1. Love everything about autumn, and knits and cardigans are just the best for it. Love your list xoxo


  2. I really love all of the embroidery pieces from Next. That black sweather, however, is reallllly pretty. It's super classic and can be worn with just about anything.

  3. I'm seriously loving the Matalan waterfall cardigan. I'm going to London on Sunday so maybe I'll be able to grab one. Great autumnal post.

  4. I love the New Look cardigan, really pretty. I'm also really surprised at how lovely the Matalan cardigans are, I've always struggled to find anything to wear in Matalan but it seems there now is stock that I'm really keen on ��
