The weather has undeniably shifted towards the cooler season, the evenings have began drawing in and the mornings have that Autumnal crisp to them. As we begin transitioning from Summer, the knitwear that has been in hiding in our wardrobes reappears along with other essential cosy, warming layers. But sometimes layering can add unnecessary bulk and uncomfortable textures, which is why we have put together this nifty style guide to ensure you look and feel your best through Autumn, Winter and beyond.
Choosing a comfortable base layer is vital, especially one that is breathable, lightweight and versatile. Our slashneck top, easycare merino turtleneck or jersey rollneck are each wardrobe staples and their easy pairing shades make them brilliant for effortless outfit combinations.
For days when you only need a light insulating piece, layer with our longline lambswool waistcoat, beautiful fairisle cardigan or luxurious fur gilet. Each are flattering, elegant and warming without being bulky or heavy.
Having a chic but practical coat is an essential for winter and our beautiful outerwear collection provides you with an array of options to suit all styles. We advise purchasing a coat in your normal size as our team design each piece to accommodate garments (and layers) underneath! Take a look at our quilted coat, faux fur collar coat and double-breasted coat to protect you against the elements.
Finally complete your look with our stunning accessories that add lovely detail and extra warmth to your ensembles. Our new Alpaca knit scarf, gloves and hat are indulgently soft and warm in a beautiful blue hue. Alternatively, for a sophisticated classic, our leather gloves have a lovely warm knitted lining. If you prefer something lighter, but to keep your neck warm, take a look at our stylish silk square that features a striking check design.
Each of these garments can then be paired with dresses, skirts or trousers, depending on your preference, to form considered, comfortable and flatteringly warm outfits.
