7 Knits & Sweaters To Buy Now For Autumn/Winter

autumn, winter, knitwear

With retailers rolling out next season fashion at present, you'd be forgiven for thinking that summer never occurred. Me personally, I find it tough thinking about autumn & winter gear when it's still 35C+ outside, let alone actually trying on a jacket in store!

(Sydney ladies will feel me on that last one - man the weather's been furnace-like lately! I'm trying not to complain too much because before we know it, we'll all be shivering & dreaming of warmer climes...or maybe I'm the only one who does that...)

Alas, the colder seasons are fast approaching in Australia & you know what that means: time for cosy knits & sweaters (or jumpers, as we Aussies call them) to warm you up when it's freezing cold outside. As much as I love a good coat to keep me toasty, I also know that I feel the cold terribly & having an extra layer on underneath said "good coat" is important to me. All of these picks can be worn alone, although I'd say a few of them require a base layer underneath. They're also all under $100, which means affordability (although that might be stretching it since some of them are only just under a hundred buckaroos). I've personally tried on the 2 from Portmans & I'm definitely going back for the dalmatian print knit!

Are you excited for autumn/winter fashion, or are you like me & can't think about it yet?


  1. I do like autumn / winter fashion but I'm not quite ready for it yet. I'm pretty sure I have number 5 or very similar! I find it difficult to get decent jumpers because I don't like long sleeves and they have to sit nicely on the bust while not clinging to the gut.

    1. I'm feeling the same way, although the mornings here have become a bit crisp. I'm beginning to have issues with jumpers as well, in terms of how they're shaped sleeve-wise & the actual length of them too. They're all a bit too short for my torso!
