For me, jumpers and knitwear is the core of A/W fashion. I love it when the weather is cool enough to start wearing a lovely soft knit with practically every outfit, well into the following year. 

My daily A/W uniform usually consists of a pair of jeans, or a fitted/A-line skirt and a big thick, knitted jumper. Team this with a pair of black ankle boots, an oversized scarf and an open, blazer-styled coat and I’m ready to go. 

I have picked up a couple of new jumpers this season to add to my collection. Although I am constantly in the process of minimalising and maintaining a capsule wardrobe, because I wear jumpers for about 5 months of the year, I feel I need a little variation in terms of colour, neckline, fit and texture. That’s the beauty of a capsule wardrobe; it is tailored to fit your needs and your lifestyle.

I have had so many lovely comments about this jumper on Instagram, and it actually featured in my Autumnal Favourites post. It is such a lovely jumper to wear, and at the bargain price of £10, I have definitely had my money’s worth. It is super soft and I love the oversized fit of it. It is so comfortable to wear and provides a really casual vibe to any outfit. Considering its bright colour, it has actually gone surprisingly well with a lot of my wardrobe.

This was another recent purchase, again for the bargain price of just £10. It fits true to size, and I picked up a size 10 so that I could wear tops underneath in the colder weather. It has a basic round neck and a slightly longer back to the front. I love this as it covers up my bum (again, great for the colder weather) but it is thin enough to both tuck into jeans and layer up. I think the colour is gorgeous, and it fits in perfectly with any autumnal or winter colour pallet.

It will be my third winter with this lovely green jumper. It is an absolute autumn/winter staple and I love that it has stayed a core piece in my wardrobe. The fit is really nice and the fabric is heavy yet thin, so it drapes really nicely on the body, without feeling as though you might have a hot flush. I’m not usually a fan of polo necks, however this is oversized by design and so I don’t get that claustrophobic feeling around my neck when I have it on. Again, the colour goes really well with the rest of my autumn/winter wardrobe and I am so happy to be wearing it again. 

Pale Grey High-Neck | New Look | Link

My last knitwear staple was a purchase I made last November just before my trip to Bratislava with James. I wanted a nice jumper that I could dress up. I knew that it was going to be super cold whist we were there, so there was no point packing pretty tops for an evening, therefore I wanted something a little dressy that would still keep my warm. I loved this bright, iced grey jumper from New Look, which has a high neckline that is really warm. This looks really nice with a wintery skirt and tights, or black jean and heeled boots.
