The influx snowy pictures of London and New York fashion weeks popping up on my Instagram feed have got me inspired for Winter.
The American and English fashion shows are a great gauge of upcoming trends. A recurring theme we have been noticing is knitted jumpers which we are predicting will be hot (and keep you hot) this Autumn and Winter.
A wardrobe classic, the knit is super diverse – chunky knits, cable knits, oversize knits and knitted dresses, cardigans and jumpers.
