Coloured Knitwear – An Autumn Essential

Roll Neck Chunky Knit

As a dedicated disciple of Kelly Hoppen, I have shall we say a bit of an aversion to colour. It started with interiors then slowly but surely spread to my wardrobe – a veritable sea of black, white and denim! I think most of us are a little bit guilty of ‘playing it safe’ in the colour department (particularly when it comes to what we wear on our person) so I am tentatively leading the charge and championing the colours of the season. Red is the obvious choice but I’m leaning more toward the gorgeous berry’s and mustards that seem to be in abundance this year. Coloured knitwear is such an easy trend to translate to every day and is so much more flattering against an English complexion than the traditional camels and greys. Don’t get me wrong, camel and grey is precisely where my comfort zone lies and the chances of me giving them up are pretty much zero. But, I was amazed at how much this burgundy/wine colour actually suited me. With the baby still waking multiple times through the night, my epidermis has a permanent grey tinge that this super soft knit manages to almost entirely disguise! I’ve styled my new favourite knit (honestly, it’s pretty much perfect and yes, it does also come in grey – two shades of grey nonetheless – for if you just want to ignore me completely (I won’t be offended)) with leopard print boots and the famous Zara Mom Jeans! If you’re wary of the itch factor you would probably want to wear a long-sleeved tee underneath the jumper – I certainly will be – but the wool content is low and the irritation is minimal even if you wanted to brave it without! What are your feelings on coloured knitwear? Are you a fan or will you be sticking with the classics?
