Style Theory: As the leaves turn to red and gold on the trees, the days get shorter and the nights longer, it is time to cocoon ourselves in cosy, soft knitwear. It is one of the things I most look forward to each Autumn/Winter season, buying new knitwear to keep me looking stylish but feeling super snug for the long months ahead.

Marks and Spencer excels in knitwear, the textures, shapes and colours always add some much needed interest to my Autumn wardrobe basics. Each piece of knitwear can be incredibly versatile, dressed down with jeans and wellies for weekend walks in the woods or dressed up with tailored trousers and heels for a smart, work look..buy well and wear all season and for seasons to come.

Big, chunky knits are, again, big news, this beautiful turquoise jumper is warm, soft and feels like a huge hug around me (I am wearing size 10 - it's true to size). I have paired it with buttery soft, leather trousers (they come up a little large these are a size 8) and heels but it can equally be teamed with a pair of skinny jeans and trainers..the colour is perfect for this time of year and flattering against the skin. Clash up with red and pink accessories to add a splash of colour to a winter look.

 The skinny rib jumper is an eternally useful piece in every wardrobe. Wear layered under jackets, this black boucle jacket looks amazing on (size down), I love it wearing it with jeans and heels for a dressed up/dressed down look. Or layer the skinny polo under dresses for added style and warmth, super versatile, a key Autumn/Winter wardrobe basic.

This outfit, to me, is pure luxurious heaven, I am a huge fan of M&S cashmere, the cashmere jumpers are super soft, cut beautifully, wash well and keep their look wear after wear. I paired my navy, cashmere jumper (size 12) with a pair of ultra cosy cashmere tracksuit bottoms (size small), a cashmere oversized scarf, leather biker (size down) and leather trainers. It really is the one outfit I wish I could wear every day, from the moment I wake to lazy evenings at home with glass of wine and a good book/netflix series. The biker is one of my Autumn must haves, size down and wear it neat (but make sure you can still fit a jumper under) wear with dresses and trainers or boots and add this beautiful cashmere scarf for extra warmth.

Autumn and Winter I am ready for you.....weekend afternoons in a pretty pub with a glass of red wine, walks through the countryside finishing with a mug of hot chocolate and dark evenings spent in front of the fire...add the perfect knitwear to snuggle in to and suddenly winter doesn't look quite so bad...

Thanks for reading, until next time Fran
