knits with a twist!

Now I know I spoke of coats on my last post but in truth I will be putting off wearing them for as long as possible (you need to buy them now and stash for later). I'm not even ready to break out my jackets or blazers just yet. Now is the time to show off some gorgeous knitwear which thankfully doesn't require another layer just yet. A few key pieces are set to keep me going through to half term sans jacket I hope! I'm going to kick off with investment piece that's come from a gorgeous little boutique who are online as well. This Orwell & Austen sweater was sent to me by Collen & ClareA classic grey cashmere sweater with a little twist......I adore the rainbow cuff. They have a brilliant range of knitwear to suit all budget, they even do their own line of very reasonable cashmere here. If you should find yourselves in Norfolk or Suffolk make sure you pay them a visit! Their stores are real treasure troves!

Next up is a brand new brand only recently set up by Charley Child, an ex-knitwear buyer who decided to set up on her own. The brand ethos is that natural and quality yarns are the starting point of design. So if the High Street offerings of man made mainly acrylic knits are not your bag then do check out what Iggy & Burt have to offer. This one is 94% cotton with a touch of wool & cashmere. Check out their great designs, this sweater is £75 (more of a mid-point price point) and it's certainly worth paying that bit extra for something a little different.

Off course there are some real gems of statement knits on the high street. This ones a cotton blend from Oasis.....same place as my beloved leopard skirt! The quality is good for the price point. It's true to size in my opinion, I have the small and I'm generally a UK 10. This reminds of a Pringle sweater I picked up in TK Maxx last year that I wore to death so I know this ones a winner!

So tell me! Are you trying to hold off wearing coats and jackets or are you now fully ingratiated in Autumn layers already?

Just a quick heads up about an event I'm doing with Duo boots in October. I'll be there styling up a few different styles of their new season boots at The Great House at Sonning.

Hope to see you there!
