The modern novelty knit

Whimsical woollens are nothing new, but they can be tricky to pull off. For a subtle approach, we love this cream bobble knit () – featuring cute mini pom-poms, it’s brimming with personality without overdoing it. Team with a midi skirt (note: Prince of Wales check is a headline pattern for autumn).

The chunky cable knit

Textured jumpers continue to be a major player on the fashion field. Abandon old conventions and slip a cable-knit () over a summery dress – it’s a contemporary update on the cardigan and means you can still wear the dress through the winter months. Just add tights and knee-high boots.

The woollen jumper dress

Tunic dresses () are a true fashion hero. Perfect for any ‘what-to-wear’ style dilemma, they’re an outfit in an instant – simply throw on and run out the door, safe in the knowledge that you look effortlessly chic. Best worn with trainers or biker boots off-duty, dress up with a polished heel at your desk.

The versatile tank top

A hidden gem in layering terms, the fisherman’s tank () will bring an extra dimension to any look. Slip it on over roll necks or shirting, keeping your bottom half streamlined to balance proportions. Denim and fitted tailoring work well here, but for a true country spin, it has to be a kilt.

The classic with a twist

Say hello to the funnel neck (). Roomier, looser and, dare we say it, cooler than its sister style, the roll neck, this olive-green jumper is understated and easier to wear. Featuring a cable-knit detail on the sleeves, make it your go-to layer for days when you want to look on trend without trying.

The oversized knit

Supersize your winter knitwear and you’ll never look back. Top marks for comfort, this deep V-neck style () showcases your décolletage (who says wool can’t be sexy?) while maintaining a boyish edge. Team with a structured skirt and boots in complementary tones – cute dog optional.
