Must-Have Knitwear Pieces for Autumn

Here’s my favourite season! Autumn just started and even we don’t feel like it yet. The weather is still unsettled here in the UK. But you can see the changes in the trees and temperature too.  For this reason, I have started to prepare myself to embrace the new season.

It includes preparing my home and my clothes too. My pick for this season is investing in key knitwear pieces that are a cosy and stylish choice for the autumn season.

I don’t know about you, but for me, autumn makes me think about cosier pieces like knitting cardigans. I love the attention to detail that you can find in knitwear.

Autumn is the ideal season for knitwear, and selecting pieces that blend style and comfort is essential. Check out Oxford for a varied selection of high-quality knitwear. From classic cardigans to fashionable sweaters, their collection includes various must-have pieces ideal for autumn. Each piece is intended to provide warmth as well as fashion-forward elegance.

You who think that the knitting pieces are still made by hand, we will show you that this process has already evolved a lot and, today, the entire production chain goes through constant innovation procedures. For this post, I researched timeless knitting pieces and a few other clothing that keep you warmer and stylish.

This season, I have picked some Autumn must-haves from Alex Jones’ collection with Cotton Traders that combine classic pieces with a cosy comfort that we expect to wear during the following three months.

Here are some ideas of knitwear pieces that you can consider adding to your autumn wardrobe:

Cardigans and Jumpers

Here is my key piece in the wardrobe. Cardigans are versatile and can be layered over t-shirts, blouses, or dresses. They come in various styles, from button-down to open-front, and can be dressed up or down. Sweaters are a classic choice for autumn.

Look for chunky knit sweaters, cable-knit sweaters, or oversized sweaters for a comfortable and warm option.

If you like a turtleneck sweater, it is a piece that provides extra warmth and a chic, sophisticated look. They are perfect for keeping you cosy on chilly autumn days.

My pick is a longline cable cardigan – a cosy-yet-chic cover-up your wardrobe has been craving! I do love the pastel colours available in this collection.

I got mine in pale sage and I am quite impressed with its quality. The perfect layering piece for in-between seasons, it’s inspired by our bestselling Cutest Cardi and comes in the same irresistibly soft, tactile knit that you love.

You can always bet on a matching knit cardigan and skirt, or pants sets are trendy and make for an effortless and put-together look.

Another favourite is a classic turtleneck Jumper. It works perfectly as a layering piece that’s wonderfully on-trend, this versatile style is just what your wardrobe’s been missing. I picked a black one to be a key piece in the wardrobe.

I can wear it with any type of coat, cardigan or even a jeans jacket and it will keep me warm and stylish.

In a sumptuously soft knit with contrasting ribs to the front, it looks lovely tucked into a skirt or jeans.

Knit Skirts and Dresses

Are you looking for a casual and comfy outfit for this Autumn? Knit dresses are comfortable and stylish for autumn. You can find them in various lengths and styles, from body-hugging to A-line, making them suitable for different occasions.

I particularly would pick the long ones to wear on days that are not so cold yet. Knit Skirts: A knit skirt paired with tights or leggings can be a fashionable choice for autumn. Look for ribbed or textured knit skirts to add some flair to your outfit.

It can be a perfect match for colder nights when you have a special occasion to attend but you want to invest in a different style for this season.

Styling knit dresses can be a fun and versatile fashion choice. Knit dresses are comfortable and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun with your knit dress. Mix and match different accessories and layering pieces to create unique looks.

Knit Accessories


Every time we think about accessories for the Autumn, we can forget to add scarves, and beanies and why not? Ponchos!

I love a knit scarf that gives it a personal touch for your outfit while it is a practical and stylish accessory for autumn. It can add a pop of colour and warmth to your outfit.

Knit Beanies are also great pieces for colder days. They keep your head warm with a knit beanie. They come in various colours and styles and can be a cute addition to your autumn ensemble.

Another popular piece for this season is a Knit Poncho. I love them. Ponchos are cosy and easy to throw on over any outfit. They provide warmth and a relaxed, bohemian vibe. It is not for everyone. But I like it. Maybe it is a Latin American thing.

Leggings and Jegging

When you think about being comfortable in the autumn, you can’t leave a nice pair of jeans out of the wardrobe. So why not invest in something more comfortable than a simple pair of jeans?

I have chosen a nice pair of stretch jeggings to complete my Autumn outfits for this year. There is nothing more stylish, but also you love our soft and stretchy jeggings.

In a cotton-rich fabric that never loses its shape, these flattering slim-cut straight-leg numbers will quickly become your best friend.

If you are a big fan of leggings, you can also opt for Knit leggings that are comfortable and versatile. They can be worn with long sweaters, tunics, or underdresses.
