Basic Knitwear Essentials

As we say goodbye to summer and usher in the autumn/winter season, we also need to ensure we have our basic knitwear essentials at the ready. The new season collection has arrived in most stores, so this is the perfect time to have a good look at your wardrobe to see what you need to shop for and what you need to get rid of.

Here are 3 pieces you should have in your wardrobe this autumn/winter:


A Cashmere Jumper

Cashmere Women's Jumper

We all know cashmere is an expensive fabric but every wardrobe should have at least 1 100% cashmere piece. A cashmere sweater/jumper is worth every penny in my eyes. Having a few in various designs and colours is a smart wardrobe investment decision. Dunedin Cashmere have some amazing womens jumpers in various colours. This red beauty above is one of them, and it is currently on sale for £63 (was previously £90). Why spend so much on a cashmere jumper when you can get cheaper alternatives I hear you ask? Well, a cashmere jumper will hold retain its shape, feel amazing on the skin – it is super soft, and it will never go out of style. Having a few cashmere jumpers is definitely a worthwhile investment.

A Long Sleeve Jersey Top

A long sleeve jersey top is a wardrobe essential for all seasons especially the autumn/winter season. It is a multi-tasking piece, very versatile and very easy to style. It can be worn on trousers, skirts, jeans or shorts. In an ideal situation, you should have a few of long sleeve tops in your closet. This Jane Norman piece above is an ideal choice, and it is currently on sale for £10 (previously £16).


A Knit Scarf

A knit scarf is another knitwear essential for this new season. A stunning knit scarf finishes off a look beautifully and also retains body heat. It is worth having a few in different colours and designs for different outfits. I am currently loving this Aran Scarf in lambswool by Dunedin Cashmere. This fine quality scarf will be a fab wardrobe accessory. It currently retails at £27.95.

  1. Beautiful knit wear essentials. I really love the cashmere jumper though expensive, cashmere jumpers are cool on the skin and durable. I love the knit scarf it is a must for me. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I really need to start thinking about adding some knitwear items to my collection (even though we haven’t had the best weather here). I love a huge knitted scarf that I can just cosy up in!

  3. I always look forward to autumn fashion ranges being released (I’m not really a summer person!), and I love snuggly jumpers. Stripey tops are one of my essentials too.
