All you KNIT is love
And just like that, Winter is upon us.
And just like that, Winter is upon us. The days are getting shorter and the mercury is dropping, and there’s one piece in your wardrobe you can always rely on to get you through the cooler months. I’m quite excited to wear this chunky knit boyfriend dress and an even coloured blocking scarf. Every season, I’m always trying to find the perfect, most versatile pieces to go with all of my unforgivably crazy wardrobe choices. Diversions aside – as the temperature drops, it’s time to bring the knits out of hibernation and to celebrate knitwear season (woohoo!)
1) INVEST IN INTERESTING TEXTURES / KNITS
One of my favourite things about getting dressed in the cooler months is the opportunity to play with a whole new realm of fabrics and textures. I love interesting weaves and patterns such as a gorgeous cable knit. If you want to add some class to your outfits for Fall, pair them with over-the-knee boots for the ultimate laid-back winter feel.
2) BE ADVENTUROUS WITH YOUR BASIC PALETTE
I can’t see myself in the foreseeable future having a black & white wardrobe – whilst essential to some, for me these colours make me feel uncomfortably corporate looking. But what I can warm up to are things like greys, navys and pinks. After a feminine touch? Opt for sheer and delicate knits in pastel colours for a pretty approach to AW16 dressing.
3) LAYER UP
When it comes to investing in 100% cashmere (you know, that stuff you’ll probably keep forever), I like to stick to super basic shades like dark grey or beige.
The luxurious cashmere is perfect for layering as it’s super lightweight and extremely soft on your skin. Definitely worth investing in!
