I Think These 4 Classic Knits Belong In Every Autumn Wardrobe

Granted the idea of staying in swimwear, linen dresses and sandals for the rest of eternity (ideally by a pool) sounds like the dream. But we can't help but get excited for the colder months. As our favourite coffee haunts drop their new hot drinks menus, our favourite shopping haunts are dropping their latest new season trends

Of course we're interested in the It boots of the season – we're looking at you hiking boots – then we want to know all about the next sell-out coats and statement dresses. But it's cosy, classic knitwear that has caught our eye. 

It's easy to snap up cult items like Ganni's most recent cool-girl jumper, but it's the hero knits we're interested in. The ones that'll never date, will go with a tonne of items in your existing wardrobes and the ones that you can feel happy buying knowing you're giving them a forever home. Much like a dog... we still want a dog though! Scroll down to see the 4 classic knits that are anything but boring. 

#1 Cream Cardigan

Style Notes: Granny-chic has never looked so erm, chic on Rouje creator, Jeanne Damas. Take note and team with frayed denim. Be careful with the red wine!

A classic cable knit goes a long way. 

All the details of designer with a high street price tag. Sold. 

#2 Autumnal Tone Merino Knit

Style Notes: Made from a prize-winning sheep, the 'merino' the fine knit has become the layering tool to every great outfit. Case in point: Tamum in her orange knit with suede shirt. Go for rich, glossy hues to keep them chic.

Forever a go-to for simple, minimal knitwear.

This will look so good with off-white jeans and snake boots. 

#3 Grey Crew Neck

Style Notes: Make like Lindsey and style your classic grey crew neck with another knit shoulder robed. You can never be too prepared! 

Statement sleeves are still going strong. 

This will look so good with leather trousers. 

#4 Camel Roll Neck

Style Notes: Keep cool and cosy with a caramel toasty high neck jumper. Do the 00s knee high boots over jeans just like Tine for a throwback look that works. 

Once you invest in a good quality cashmere knit you'll never go back.
