It’s officially Autumn guys but don’t be sad. Yes it’s getting colder and we have to wear more layers but have you seen this season’s trends? Cute cardigans and cosy jumpers have hit the stores and it’s time to go shopping.  The easiest way to wear fashion knitwear is to throw on a jumper with some jeans and boots. Warm, snug and guaranteed to look great. For those of you struggling to say goodbye to summer, you don’t have to give up on dresses and skirts completely either; simply add some tights and a cardigan to your ensemble and you’re good to go. You could even try midi dresses which are a great trend for autumn; teamed with a fitted cardigan, this is the perfect look for an Autumn evening.

Don’t just opt for the latest styles in knitwear; choose cuts that suit you and your shape.
Apple girls, who have a rounder tummy, are best suited to long cardigans as these add length to your torso. 
V-necked cardigans are great for drawing attention away from the stomach, as are printed cardigans. 
Batwing jumpers also provide extra shape but they add it to the right places.
Girls who are pear shaped should also look for printed knitwear as these can divert attention away from their wide hips.
Hourglass shapes should opt for fitted cardigans as these will emphasise their proportionate frame and show off their figures.
Athletic, or rectangular, frames should opt for brighter colours and feminine styles to add a girly edge to shape. 

Wrap up with a cosy knit and enjoy the delights of Autumn. Chestnut picking, walks through the woods, bonfires and Halloween; it’s the season to snuggle up to your loved ones so why not do it in style?!
