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.
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.
