Fashion for frosty mornings: Layering with chunky cardis

And I should know; when I woke early one morning in mid October the grass was already sparkling with frost – and now it’s practically an everyday occurence. There are officially two ways of tackling chilly mornings: 1. Stay in bed until the sun has risen higher and has warmed up the world enough that the frost has melted. or 2. Wrap up warm and stay stylish with on-trend knitwear.

Although I’ve tried it many times, staying in bed isn’t often possible, so I’ve been blogging about the top trends in cosy comfortable knitwear since October. I wrote about knitted dresses here and 80s funky jumpers plus a post about animal knits and trendy leggings last week. So here’s another trend that I’m tapping into to keep me warm this autumn/winter:

I’ve taken inspiration from Rodarte and luxury British designer Any Hall’s collection for this Autumn/Winter 2012 and have found these copy-cat chunky knitwear items from Debenhams, or these mustard yellow from Matalan and this green chunky knit from  MissGuided – both cardis are only £20. Cosy cable-knit cardis are perfect for layering over jumpers and dresses to keep you warm in deepest darkest Winter, plus you can wear them in the Spring with your summer floral dresses to keep the chill off, providing extra value for your money!

Let me know what you’ll be wearing this autumn/winter! And check back soon for the next hot knitwear trend & how to get the look for a fraction of the price :)
