You probably all know I am a lover of the summer, but there is no denying that there is something super exciting when the weather changes and you can pull out all your knits and coats and start layering.
As you all know Net-a-porter is normally my go to site for investment pieces so I have put together so a few of my favourite pieces for AW and styled them different ways.
I decided for this post to focus on knits, there is nothing more Autumny that a chunky sweater, to be honest for years I never really invested much in knits, I was always been a Marks and Spencer cashmere kind of girl worrying that if I bought super expensive knits they would get eaten by moths, but a few years ago I bought a statement sleeve Co jumper from net-a-porter – and it was a game changer, I loved it so much that ever since (along with my M&S cashmere) every year since I have invested in a few great knits. As the name suggests a “statement” knit can transform any basic outfit, it can elevate simple jeans to something uber cool or I am currently loving knits with silky slip dresses or skirts, its something I started doing last year for the first time and a trend that I am still loving.
I love this A.W.A.K.E. jumper that I bought and teamed with my Balenciaga jeans – the red makes such a statement and brightens up any grey day /mood! and the sleeves are super cool as you can actually take your arm out the cuff, plus you can reverse it to a cardigan….and look at the back detailing!!! You will be seeing me in this a lot over the coming season.
This oversized navy Acne jumper I have yet to purchase but is going straight to the top of my wish list (I need to get it soon as they do sell out though – and they are very oversized so take your size or one size down) – I have the grey one from last year and I wore it so so much, its basically so warm that you can wear it instead of a coat – which I love, it also doesn’t bobble at all and is just one of those knits you will have forever and ever! I wore it here belted over a gorgeous Joseph slip dress, but its equally gorgeous with jeans and mules, like I wore the grey version on my insta last year.
To show versatility the same Joseph dress is worn here with a BEAUTIFUL Mes demoiselles cardigan, this cardigan is one of my favourite purchases for AW, I absolutely LOVE it I adore the pretty colours through it and love the hand knitted vintage feel, totally sublime.
Another favourite is this Acne jumper, also so lovely – a great basic and again they just last forever as they don’t seem to bobble, they are very thick and warm and the quality is superb. I am loving mixing knits with silk and slip dresses but I also love other contrasting fabric combinations and I always love a bit of leather in the winter so I teamed it with this Petar Petrov leather skirt that I bought and am obsessed with – it is a big investment, but it goes with everything, knits, blouses I just think the shape and fabric are so super cool, it is a really on trend piece that has added to my wardrobe.
Dressing it down – I teamed the same Acne jumper with the same Balenciaga jeans for more of an every day look.
I have focused on knits, but everyone know I love a dress, be it summer or AW, dresses are always the main feature of my wardrobe…I wear a total mix of styles from midi dresses which are always chic to shorter ones which look fab with tights and boots – here I wore an Ulla Johnson dress that I love, with my Jimmy Choo shoes which I a am obsessed with right now, but I also would wear it with Gucci princetowns – these for me are a AW staple, I practically live in them and have them in various colours, although if you zr only win g to invest in 1 pair I recommend the black leather or black velvet.
Hope you have enjoyed seeing some of my favourite pieces from Net-a-Porter and are looking forward to some autumn cosyiness like me (as long as the sun come out by Easter)
