Scandi knitwear this season is all about layering fine knits and statement jacquard prints – here’s our edit of everything from rollnecks to chunky cardis and luxury cashmere graphic knits from brands including Wyse, Rosemunde, Emily + Fin and Ichi. Perfect autumn investments to see you through till spring…

Layer it up…

If it’s one thing the Scandis do well, other than style, it’s layering. Rather than separate summer/winter wardrobes, the seasons blur as rather than packing away print dresses come September, a roll-neck is layered underneath, a biker jacket on top, sandals are switched for knee-high boots and ta dah! You immediately extend the wear of one dress by another few months. Clever base-layer pieces like these rollnecks from Scandi knitwear brands including Rosemunde, Ichi and Vilagallo are brilliant autumn wardrobe staples. Pick neutrals, or a statement shade that picks up an accent colour of your print. Alone they are great tucked into pleated skirts, or high waisted jeans for a 70s retro look, too.

Cosy Cardigans

A cosy cardigan is the perfect finishing touch to your autumn wardrobe, a little extra warmth when you need it, or in place of a winter coat on warmer days. If you’re looking for a ‘mid-layer’ that’s a neat fit, not too bulky and timeless design – Rosemunde’s Leica cardigans, available in 7 colours, tick every box. They’re a cashmere/wool mix so breathable and warm in one. Layer over Rosemunde’s long-line, lace-trim vests in tonal shades for a cosy, stylish winter look.

If you’re looking for the ultimate in stylish, cosy knitwear, Duffy NY’s cashmere wrap is a dream. The cocooning cashmere/wool knit is perfect for travelling, or adding that extra layer of warmth on cold mornings.

This longer-line alpaca-rich cardigan from mbyM in a beautiful alpaca-rich, cobalt blue is cosy, yet the belt-tie waist ensures it flatters while the bell-sleeve detail gives it that design-finish. Gorgeous over tees, skinny jeans and boots as a ‘coatigan’ on milder days.
