How to Wear Autumn's Knitwear Trends

It's getting to be that time of year. Kids are back at school. Days are getting shorter. Leaves are getting crispier. Time to cozy up in some of this season's very best knitwear.

The Inspiration

Great minds think alike. Knitwear at The Hambledon always makes a strong showing for Autumn but 2020 saw the couture designers embracing the trend for the AW runway season. Whether it's Miu Miu's ultra ladylike mohair cardigans, Dior's knitted vests, Christopher Kanes's cable extravaganzas or Issey Miyake's ring of roses colour pops, knitwear has been strutting confidently down the catwalk. And we are very happily adopting key shapes and styles.

Colour Pop

From Lolly’s Laundry’s neon yellow Aliza to American Vintage’s bright pink Tudbury, with all stations in between represented by any of Bellerose’s delicious Dattis, simple block colours are strong. Easy to pair with plain basics or elaborate prints, this is your simple solution to getting dressed for Autumn.

The Cardigan

Channel your inner librarian. The cardigan, in all its many forms, reigns supreme. For Gucci, Prada, Marni read By Timo, Bellerose, Jumper1234. Shapes run the gamut from perennial favourite coatigan to outsized, cropped and chunky; from super soft and fitted to dressed down and snuggly. These are styles to be worn over dresses, skirts and jeans. A cardigan is the no brainer of AW.

Pattern and Texture

Embellishment in the form of embroidery, cable knitting and intarsia was all over the runway. We’ve picked our couture icons in the form of Roksanda, Raf Simons and Oscar de la Renta. If you can’t quite face the price tag or the mad theatre of Roksanda, try Stine Goya’s multi stripe knit for a more quotidian take on the trend for clashing colours. Jumper 1234 is our utterly reliable (and I mean that in a very, very positive way) cashmere brand. Ditch the yummy mummy rainbow knits of yesteryear, AW20 celebrates neutral tones and a degree more sophistication. The fun, and the runway steals, are to be had in the super nice cable knits (as seen at the Raf show). Oscar de la Renta’s catwalk florals are reflected in DPH’s pretty collection, featuring their lovely Clemille knit.

Sweater Vests

This has to be the cutest trend ATM TBH NGL. Whilst Prada and Dior ramped up the crazy (in terms of colour and texture and volume) for the shows, we've embraced the shape but kept to a more subdued and everyday wearable interpretation. Bellerose has two of the very best versions. Gywo is a soft green marl knit for dressing down (pair this with their Slate shirt and jeans). Dation is an angora turtle neck for dressing up (we like this with the Hartford silk skirt or a pair of wide leg pants).


The big sleeve trend (which we loved from Ganni's shirting and Stine Goya's dresses through SS20) transitions to Autumn. Check out Baum und Pferdgarten's puff sleeve roll neck which balances the outsize arm with an exaggerated narrow cuff for maximum femininity. By Timo also play with the idea of big and little with their super generous cardi (back for a repeat performance following last year's success) and the new short but ample sleeved tee. Make like Alexander McQueen RTW with long sweater coats belted (Sibin and American Vintage are your friends, belts ably provided by Bellerose).


If it’s all getting a bit knitty for you, try a bit of Colorful Standard or American Vintage sweatshirts for layering.
