It may not be time to pull out the cashmere just yet, but now is your chance to prepare for the cold with the recent arrival of sumptuous knitwear.

This season, comfort is king, and there’s chunky textures and hazel hues galore, not to mention versatile necklines and silhouettes for endless layering solutions.

When choosing your perfect knit, take note of the fabric composition, and make sure to wash and store appropriately. Remember, not all blends are equal — steer clear of hangers when it comes to wool, make the most of a comb or fabric shaver, and air dry to prolong your precious garment’s life.
