A knockout knit can be as comforting as a big hug - warm, cosy and the perfect pull-on for a chilly morning! As one of the most essential elements of a man’s autumn wardrobe, your favourite knit can add colour, texture and pattern to lift an everyday outfit. Below, I’ve put together my favourite knitwear pieces to get you all set for the season ahead...
When it comes to men’s autumn outfits, it’s all about rich ochre tones and cosy, textured finishes. This basket weave jumper in rich spice shades is an easy way to add a splash of colour to your wardrobe, and looks great styled over a denim shirt and paired with your favourite jeans for dinner out or a day in the country.
”Don’t forget to pull out your cuffs when styling over a white long-sleeved top.“
Nothing encapsulates the perfect men’s winter outfit better than a traditional Fairisle knit. This cosy jumper, with its heritage feel and simple but modern cut, promises to slip seamlessly into your new season wardrobe. The rich palette of rust, forest and blue make this an easy layering piece - and don’t be afraid to mix patterns! A navy gingham or stripe shirt underneath would style in beautifully here too.
Chunky men’s knitwear never goes out of fashion, and there’s nothing we love more than a chunky cable knit sweater. This ‘soft as butter’ cotton crew neck in rich burgundy looks great styled over a white tee and paired with our favourite drawstring rugby-style trousers - a more street-worthy take on joggers.
A sherpa-trimmed collar elevates this oatmeal zip-up cardi into something oh-so-special. The cosy warmth and chunky ribbing makes it the perfect men’s autumn outfit choice - just layer under a longline coat or wax-look jacket when the weather gets colder.
”Don’t wash your knitwear too often, simply hang it out on a dry breezy day to air through to avoid those annoying bobbles!“
We’ve saved our very best men’s knitwear ’til last with this beautiful lambswool jumper - a classic made modern thanks to its unique washed denim hue. Pair it with a white tee and slim-fit chinos for smart-casual style, add jeans and white trainers for a relaxed weekend look, or pop a shirt underneath for a sporty get-up that’s perfect for the golf club.
