My favorite thing about autumn and winter is the knitwear. Sensible, functional knits, texture and colour and the sheer variety you can get - from super-lightweight cashmere to thick, chunky ribs and cables. The weather at the moment is the type where all you really need is to grab a jumper when leaving the house and you know you'll be okay. When it comes to buying knitwear; Karen Walker does that fine cashmere so well; Juliette Hogan has done some fantastic polo-necks; Country Road has a huge array of knitwear in great colourways this season; The Warehouse is as reliable as ever for those classic mens jumpers and beanies; and TwentySevenNames do some of the best simple, mid-weight cardigans and sweaters around.
This editorial from 1996 featuring Stella Tennant (who we incidentally had a long discussion about on the walk home last night) has me excited for the temperature to really drop.
