Knits After Dark


I would have never thought I would be reaching out for knitwear mid-summer. But it is what it is and this year UK can’t seem to get enough sunshine! Getting pins out for a walk to work is fine, but as soon as the evening comes, I get some serious goose bumps. In times like these light, soft knits are life savers! This Zara piece is guaranteed to make you warm enough to enjoy that glass of wine on the terrace. Such a simple shape best exaggerated with some costume drama jewelry! Clockwise from top,  Zara jumper, £25.99; Tom Binns ‘Love of God’ necklace, £1305 + splashout painted Swarowski crystal earrings, £290; River Island black and gold tone pack of bracelets, £13.

Acne Pre-Fall Knitwear


I absolutely adore these knitwear pieces from Acne’s Pre Fall 2012 collection. They look so soft, ready to throw with pair of boyfriend jeans or a wool mini skirt, for the ultimate comfort while going about your business. Designed by uber cool Swedish label Acne (Ambition to Create Novel Expression) they come in a wide range of colours. We all know that great sweaters are hard to find, especially on the high street, as cheaper versions will not last long before looking shabby. So these Acne pieces are definitely worth the investment and perfect for those who are seeking a capsule wardrobe!
