Autumn Style: Layering Knitwear

HUSH knitwear cardigan coat

Here’s the knitwear layering video, as promised. In the photograph above (taken from the video intro) I am wearing my two favourite clothing items of the moment: the Hush Cardigan Coat and my Whistles animal print sweater. You know when you buy something and you just think, YES! This is what I have been searching for!? That. That is how I feel at the moment. I have made some stonkingly great purchases recently and they make me feel quite warm inside!

Take, for example, the Donna Karan dress that you’ll see in the video. Absolutely brilliant for winter; long sleeves, a chic, drapey top and a short, tight skirt. A total classic. Reduced from (I think) seven-hundred-ish, down to about one-fifty. You can really feel the quality, though I’m not sure I’d have paid full price for it! Take, also, my new Paige Verdugo black overdye jeans. Not featured in the video, because they were in the wash, but they are just fantastic. Soft, stretchy, comfy if you’ve overdone it at dinnertime, yet so structured and fitted around the bottom and legs. A triumph in cut and fit – you can still get them at Donna Ida HERE. I really feel like this Autumn is going to be a good, one, sartorially speaking!

Right then, on with the video. I hope you like my chosen setting – the dinosaur park at Crystal Palace! I didn’t even know that this existed until last weekend when my sister mentioned it. What a lovely park – and a lovely little south London area. Leafy and quiet. I have wanted to film a knitwear video for ages, but this is the first weekend that it’s really been cold enough to do it. In the end, it turned out to be quite changeable on Sunday, but such is the beauty of knitwear layering – if you get too warm you just peel off the top layer! Cosy dressing at its best.
