From oversized, chunky knit sweaters that keep you cosy on chilly mornings to finer, lightweight tops and cardigans that act as the perfect trans seasonal pieces, as summer turns to autumn we have our knitwear favourites on high rotation.
Whether you’re looking to invest in some new knit pieces to see you through the change in season, or some inspiration on how to breathe a new lease of life into your existing staples, we’ve curated some autumn knitwear outfit ideas to help you build the perfect fit to suit any style or occasion.
A knitted dress is versatile, easy to wear and can be found in a range of silhouettes, colours, textures and styles. Look for a chunky knit in a mini length and pair with knee high leather boots. The shorter hem means you’ll avoid feeling drowned in the heavier finish and baggier fit and the knee high boots balance your silhouette. If a longer length is more your personal style, look for a midi dress in a finer knit that hugs your figure and opt for a staple block shade for the ultimate capsule piece.
A cardigan is the ideal piece for layering; something that can be taken on and off while the days are still warm or to keep you cosy as temperatures drop later in the season. An oversized cardigan that finishes just below your knees is great for pairing with a top and skirt combination. Complete your outfit with a pair of western inspired cowboy boots and coordinating bag for an everyday autumnal ensemble. For a more polished look, opt for a cropped cardigan that buttons up – wear it buttoned as a top with a flowing maxi skirt and fine gold accessories or undone and layered over a mini dress and finished with boots.
A slouchy, high quality oversized knit is a must have in every autumn and winter wardrobe. Comfortable, easy to throw on and effortlessly cool, it can be worn for days at home, sitting in front of a roaring fire with a good book or taking an afternoon walk along the coast. Keep your look casual and pair with your favourite jeans or with a textured mini skirt and boots for a relaxed day to night outfit.
Cropped Knit Sweater
Much like the versatility of a cardigan, a cropped knit sweater can be worn on its own with jeans, breezy wide leg pants, high waisted printed skirt or layered with a mini or midi dress to perfectly suit the occasion and weather. Look for a cropped style that finishes around your waist to elongate your silhouette and explore earthy autumnal colours of deep brown, ocean blue and burnt orange.
From a chunky knitted mini dress paired with leather boots for a stunning evening outfit to a slouchy yet cosy oversized sweater and jeans that prioritises comfort, knitwear pieces will undoubtedly be the foundation of all our autumn fits. Explore different textures, silhouettes and colour palettes to find the perfect pieces to add to your new season collection, or experiment with new ways to wear your trusty wardrobe favourites.
