Long-line jumpers, the timeless polo, a statement cable and more – Erica Davies, founder of style blog The Edited, shows you how to layer her knitwear must-haves
I love this kind of look – it’s an easy way to do relaxed glamour, but the longer line knit makes it feel cosy at the same time.
The pleated skirt is such a staple look of the season – and this gorgeous gold shade will work with so many other autumnal colours, from maroon to khaki green and even camel. I’ve teamed it with a chunky knit in the same shade. Dressing in one colour but mixing up the textures is a very modern, flattering way of dressing.
I’m a big fan of layering stripes under most things – so I played with the proportions of this gorgeous full-sleeved blouse by adding a polo neck beneath. Worn with wide-leg trousers, it’s the kind of look you could dress down with trainers or wear out with ankle boots.
The beauty of this knit is that while it’s a statement, it’s so comfortable. The embellished detail means it will take you easily from weekendwear with denim to an event straight after work. Team it with tailored black trousers and classic courts for a minimal look with a twist, or with the velvet pleated skirt like I have for new take on eveningwear. With the addition of a simple blouse beneath and a classic pea coat, it feels much more day friendly. I’d even wear with white plimsolls for Sunday lunch with the family.

M&S do the best cashmere sweaters for men – but don’t buy them for the man in your life, wear them yourself! They are a fashion editor’s secret – they have the perfect slouch and fit, combined with the elegance of classic styling. I’ve worn a navy blue one here with this gorgeous tiered embellished skirt – which for me, is a really simple way to dress up. I’ve worn with knee high boots for a mix of high and low glamour that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable.
