I think I speak for everyone when I say I'm relieved that we're a third of the way through this year—2020 can do one as far as I'm concerned. As if hearing our collective exhaustion at the year that keeps on taking, the weather has shifted to be enjoyably cold. (By that I mean crisp, bright sunshine with the occasional freezing wind.) This means one thing: It's knitwear season. While the summer was for loose cotton dresses, shorts and padded-shoulder vests, now it's all about investing in the knitwear we'll be wearing well into 2021. Personally, I'll be stocking up on those jumpers and cardigans I'll wear for many years to come. Think cream cable-knits, grey cashmere and striped nautical-style pullovers.

There's no doubt that many of us are living on a tighter budget than before, but there are options. High-street favourite H&M has really delivered this season with a range of future classics that are primed for wearing with anything in your wardrobe. There are the belted off-white cashmere cardigan and the greige thick, ribbed knit, which I know I'd wear all the time, but the piece I have my eye on is the cream knitted vest. Wear it oversize with a men's shirt and leather trousers for the full 2020 look. Keep scrolling to see more knitwear gems from H&M.
