Fashion magazines say a cream coloured aran knit is in for Autumn/Winter, year after year. After much consideration I would have to agree with them, an aran knit is no longer something that once belonged in a box in Granny’s attic, it is a statement key piece to see you through this season and every A/W season after.
As a statement piece the aran knit keeps you warm, looks stylishly cosy and will be your new friend when it comes to updating all those skirts you have piled up ready to update. Invest in a decent priced aran knit this winter because it is so deliciously chic and cosy, or invest in a few because you’ll be wearing them often. The days of impractical winter styles are long gone. Now we opt for cream coloured cable knitted sweaters that behold real good taste and offer practicality for all autumnal events.
I am a huge fan of aran knits because they are flattering and work well with almost anything, like this tweed pelmet skirt with suedette piping from Topshop. The cream and brown tones contrast yet work well together, creating a modern heritage look that begs to be worn every day during the colder months. I wore my brown and black tote leather bag from Topshop to really tie the caramel tones together and complete the look. It just must be the new weeekdender look, perfect for shopping and exploring, right?
The aran knit jumper,smart tweed and a good pair of over the knee boots offers a new injection of winter spice to your workwear wardrobe too, making it easier for you to transition from the office to the bar. It’s the new British heritage look as an aran knit, tweed and leather are some of the national fashion treasures we will see stand the test of style time. But the trick is to use the textures and fabrics to your own advantage and create looks that work for you, that are comfortable and keep you warm this winter. Be true to your own style though.
Now pass the pumpkin spiced latte…
