To celebrate Wool Week 2018 (8-21th October), we’ve collated five of this season’s most sumptuous knits to see you through the season in the perfect blend of style and comfort. It’s time to get all wrapped up…
1. The Cool Co-Ords
Sumptuous textures, sleek styling: wool co-ords are autumn’s answer to the two-piece trend that often emerges in the warmer months of the year. This season, the update is less frumpy and more fashion-forward with neutral colour palettes and asymmetric hemlines adding fresh appeal to matching looks. Wear the knit tucked into the hemline of the skirt, before styling each piece separately.
2. The Layering Piece
Moving away from basic knits, colour-block designs are gaining momentum in our cold-weather wardrobes, providing us with the perfect layering pieces for the season ahead. With super-charged colours may feel more suited to spring, muted hues are the knits to invest in for now – style yours under a plum-hued pinafore in soft-touch corduroy.
3. The Statement Knit
When temperatures are low, a statement knit is the sartorial solution you need to lift your spirits as well as your comfort levels. Clashing animal prints, stripes and Fairisle intarsias in soft wool blends promise to elevate every ensemble – team with a gold sequin midi to go from desk to dinner party, and dress it down with denim for off-duty weekends.
4. The Roll-Neck Jumper
While dark, inky hues will always have a place in our style line-ups, bold palettes are combining with big, cosy knits for another season – and we’re here to champion the trend. A roll-neck number in statement scarlet will stand out for all the right seasons – wear yours with denim or, for something unexpected, throw on over a velvet dress in ochre.
5. The Long-Line Cardigan
The cardigan have shredded its butted-up reputation and transformed into something that feels cooler and more contemporary. Long-line silhouettes in sumptuous wool textures are the most coveted cover-ups of the moment, whether worn over sparkling sequin gowns or relaxed tees and jeans.
