Now that the long summer is over and temperatures have dropped, it’s time to start thinking about knitwear. By investing in staple pieces now to see you through autumn and winter, you’ll be well prepared for all the cool days and brisk evenings ahead.

The roll neck jumper is a staple piece for the office, providing the ideal smart-casual look for both men and women. Depending on the formality of your office dress code, you could pair your turtleneck with jeans or tailored trousers for a stylish seasonal outfit.
For the weekend
Crew neck knits are a great choice for casual days and there are plenty of styles to choose from. For women, patterned intarsia knits are a stylish statement piece, best worn with the front tucked into your favourite jeans or skirt. For men, a crew neck looks great layered over a shirt for a timeless look, providing the ideal relaxed ensemble for weekend styling.
Knitwear isn’t just for daytime ensembles, so why not allow yourself that extra layer on evenings out with friends? A short sleeved jumper can add a chic finishing touch to on-duty outfits, ideal layered over a mini dress and paired with ankle boots or heels. Gentlemen should try wearing a classic turtleneck under a well-fitting suit, or simply styled with a blazer and slim fit jeans on more casual nights.
