AW17 Style Inspiration: Embracing Chunky Knitwear ft. TOBI

AW17 Style Inspiration - Khaki Cold Shoulder TOBI Jumper

There's something so dependable about knitwear. Perhaps it's the way it wraps you up with a welcoming embrace every Autumn, with the sole purpose of keeping you cosy throughout the coldest of months ahead. Or maybe it's just the way you can throw it on with minimum effort or fuss, and feel both stylish and comfortable at the same time.

Once seen as frumpy and old-fashioned, knitwear is constantly evolving in the world of fashion, to meet the demand for chic, wearable pieces. Even knitting and crochet have been experiencing a renaissance as hobbies in recent years! So when I was contacted by online fashion retailer TOBI to collaborate on some style posts, I jumped at the opportunity to refresh my AW17 wardrobe with some cosy, yet fabulous, knitted dresses.

Appealing to my inner country girl, I was drawn to the earthy shades of khaki and dusty pink. Both are easy, versatile shades to wear and can be paired with black or tan - my wardrobe favourites.

I'd definitely describe my style as simple, I tend to opt for more classic designs that I know will both transcend the seasons and make timeless pieces in my wardrobe. But both dresses had little details about them that made them unique, statement designs - one had bell sleeves, and the other cold shoulders. And what better way to put these dresses through their paces than by heading out into the British countryside!

I kept my looks simple, teaming my dresses with tights and knee high boots, putting my own twist on the countryside / heritage look that's going to be everywhere this autumn.

Both dresses are as cosy as they look too, I ordered a size medium for both, and if I'm honest I definitely could've sized down but I wanted to ensure they had that oversized, cosy feel to them. I can already picture both of these dresses with chunky scarves and fur hats for firework night!

I definitely think knitted dresses, and knitwear in general is the best way to transition the seasons. They're the perfect balance for days when it's not quite chilly enough for a coat, and they'll save you layering up on days where you need a little extra warmth. Plus if we're lucky enough to have a few days where it's crisp, sunny weather, I feel like bare legs and thigh-high suede boots are the way to go.

I hope you enjoyed reading my little style inspiration post anyway! Hopefully it'll be the first of more to come. If I'm honest I can't even believe this is something I'm publishing on here, because a year ago I wouldn't have even considered it! But as with anything, I hope I can learn and grow over time and I must admit I'm excited about creating more posts in the future.

What are your Autumn style essentials? 

Until next time..
