From cashmere joggers to Argyle jumpers, meet the it-knits of the season
Heritage prints were huge on the autumn/winter catwalks, so now is the time to embrace Argyle knits with an on-trend diamond-pattern jumper. Wear over a crisp white shirt and throw on a checked blazer to finish the look, then add a cool twist to the traditional vibe with a statement shoulder bag.
When the weather turns cold, who doesn’t love a cosy jumper dress? The epitome of easy comfort, this style can also be seriously chic, as this pure cashmere, ribbed knit dress proves. Wear it with chunky biker boots or elegant knee-highs; if you’re feeling daring, you could even go full fashion and layer it over a colour-pop dress like this.
One of the best things about autumn? Blankets. Which is why we’re thrilled to share that wraps and ponchos are on-trend this season, giving us the perfect excuse to bundle ourselves up in lovely woollen goodness. With its autumnal colours and checked print, this cape is a great choice, and you can keep the look cool but casual by wearing it over denim.
If we had one style rule for autumn/winter, it would be this: everyone needs a good grey roll-neck jumper. It’s one of those wardrobe staples you’ll find amazingly useful, whether you chuck it on with jeans at the weekend, or wear it over a showstopping midi skirt for special occasions. This pure cashmere Autograph jumper, also available in three other colours, features a beautiful cable-knit finish and is unbelievably soft.
There’s nothing more enjoyable than being fully swathed in cashmere – in fact, we can cope with plunging temperatures if it means that super-soft, luxurious joggers are a viable option. Choose the camel or navy version of our pure cashmere Autograph joggers, which, like all M&S cashmere styles, are machine washable. There’s even a matching zip-up hoodie – the dream.
