There’s a chill in the air, the leaves are falling from the trees and we’ve plenty of fun holidays to look forward to – autumn is definitely here! Preparing your wardrobe for autumn and winter means cosying up with plenty of warm fabrics, knitted textures and snuggly accessories; why not check out our winter warmers guide for men and women?
Gents – keep it traditional with a heritage twist
Winter is the season for indulging in some classic knitwear that will keep you warm yet stylish throughout the latter half of the year. If you normally shy away from jumpers or cardigans, try out something that’s sure to look good by tapping into the heritage trend. The Fred Perry Mens Tweed Shawl Collar Cardigan in chestnut brown is flattering on all figures, plus the shawl collar gives it a retro edge. We also like the Goodsouls Mens Fairisle Crew Neck Jumper in subdued autumnal tones – perfect for those who love the look of a Christmas jumper but aren’t quite brave enough to pull it off! A modern alternative to the festive jumper is the Goodsouls Mens Nordic Funnel Neck Zip Through cardigan, with a bold Scandinavian-style print and contemporary grey marl body. Don’t forget a warm coat and sturdy boots too – we like the Superdry Mens Merchant Peacoat for military style, and the Unsung Hero Conroe Mens Boots with a trendy tweed-effect panel.
Ladies – tap into trends with your knitwear
When it comes to womenswear for winter, nothing is out of bounds – whatever style you prefer, here at Littlewoods we’ve got the perfect jumper or cardigan to satisfy it! Give your winter wardrobe an urban edge with the South Metallic Jumper in Nude, which is perfect for layering with a silk shirt or over a tailored shift for work.
If you prefer a more casual look, try the South Cocoon Cable Knit Cardigan in a slubby, marl-type yarn, paired with skinny jeans and a casual granddad-neck tee. The South Pocket Tunic is a wardrobe essential; in two-tone red and paired with patterned leggings, it would make a fabulous alternative to a dress for a warming lunch out with the girls. Make sure your accessories are just as trendy with a matching hat and gloves, like the Nordic-style Superdry Husky Scarf and Superdry Husky Mittens in red and white with fur trim.
We also really love the quilted Leather Gloves, perfect for a sophisticated winter wardrobe.
