Cosy, cropped, or cashmere – it’s time to perfect your knitwear game.
I’ve been struggling to find that perfect knit for weeks now and had resigned myself to lugging myself and my faux fur around London thanks to several unsuccess shopping trips; anyone who’s been on the tube in a fur know this isn’t easy, or in anyway enjoyable.
Being the impatient shopper I am, I’d bought my polo necks in early September, (not too crazy considering in August I’d stocked up on my boots and beauty essentials). As the weather continued to get warmer, I whipped out my knits at any hint of chill. Suffice to say I’m already bored of the purchases I made way back when. What I want now, is an oversized boyfriend knit in a sensible hue, a chunky cream knit, a new coatigan (totes a thing, just ask any student/hobo/trustafarian) and a few fun jumpers to bring the joy to black jean days.
Thankfully, the shops have finally started dropping some knits I can really get behind. Here’s my pick of the best.

I’d never considered All Saints as a destination for jumpers, but I was surprised to see an abundance of cashmere blends, cool prints and cosy classics all with quirky design features that make the £100+ price tag, totally justifiable.
