Getting A/W Ready Part III

Okay so now we have our coats and shoes ready it’s time to source one of the best things about Autumn/Winter and that is of course the oh so cosy, super soft and what makes winter hibernation that much better….KNITWEAR!


Jumper from ZARA

As you all know by now I am partial to a bit of cashmere and although it’s not something that I can buy week in week out (even month in month out) I do like to splurge on just one cashmere item each winter (It’s the only thing that can cheer me up post-Christmas and is always something worth looking out for in the January sales).

Cashmere isn’t the only luxe fabric out there, there’s loads however one thing I have learnt along the years is that “most of the time you get what you pay for” when it comes to knitwear. How many times have you brought the best jumper from Zara or Primark only to have worn it once or twice and it has gone bobbly or mis-shaped?  What I tend to do now is still buy the fun, on-trend pieces from Primark and Zara but when it comes to classics like a navy roll neck jumper or a grey cable knit cardi, I spend a little more. Usually opting for places like CosUniqlo& Other Stories so that they will last year after year. I always check the composition label pre-purchase, for something long lasting you want it to be made up of at least 50% wool, mohair, cotton, cashmere or another natural fiber.

With that said here are the best of the best on the High Street right now, whatever you’re looking for:
