Here are 4 must have knits to see you through Autumn and into Winter. Despite the recent warm weather, this weekend is set to turn more Autumnal. It would be tempting to fill your wardrobe with cheap sweaters, but I think that is false economy because they will lose their shape and wash out before the end of the season. The 4 must have knits I have chosen are all quality pieces that will still be going strong next winter if you look after them. They can all be hand washed, in fact the cashmere sweater will machine wash at 30 degrees. I wash all of my sweaters on the hand wash programme of my washing machine with a specialist wool/silk liquid and I have never yet had a problem, so they really don’t need a lot of effort to keep them nice. Just dry them flat and use a wool comb to gentle remove any bobbling.
4 Must have knits – work
A fine knit works well under a suit for the office and this one has just a little bit of extra detailing to make it more interesting.
4 Must have knits – smart casual cashmere
This gorgeous cashmere sweater is great value and comes in a multitude of colours in sizes 6 to 24 so there is bound to be a colour and size to suit you. As I mentioned above it is also machine washable! I’ve teamed it here with a pair of tailored trousers and a new shape jacket for a smart casual look, in a mix of grey and pink.
4 Must have knits – weekend casual
For those colder weekend days when you want something cosy this bamboo blend sweater is the answer. It’s made a little more interesting by it’s camouflage pattern which is softened with it’s pink/grey colouring. Just add a pair of chunky boots and a stylish hat.
4 Must have knits – Evening
Not an evening sweater as such, but I think the feminine balloon shape sleeves and detachable tie make this sweater a perfect choice for an evening, especially if it’s a chilly venue. I have added the must have pleat skirt, sparkly shoes and a gorgeous wrap to elevate it even more.
