NA-KD is a brand I was familiar with but didn’t quite realise the extent of the stock and brands they sold. They have everything from own brand to Calvin Klein and Revolve favourite, For Love & Lemons. I particularly love the independent brands stocked such as Samsoe & Samsoe and Finders Keepers. They also have high street favourites such as Mango and French Connection.
Now that the clocks have gone back and the days have drawn shorter, I’m craving time at home reading a book or watching a series on Netflix with a comforting hot chocolate topped with cream & marshmallows. It’s the Autumnal dream. All the while, all I want to wear is cosy knitwear.
Outfit 1 – Oversized Knit
I’ve always wanted a chunky jumper dress but up until now I’ve struggled to find one with the right proportions for my petite frame and the right type of knit. I have thin, body con style knit midi dresses which are flattering for my figure however at this time of year, the chunkier, cable knits are what I’m after and I’ve finally found one that is all of those things plus the right length and shape.
Part of the reason for wanting one of these dresses is to style with over the knee boots. Similar to the struggle to find the right knit unfortunately I’ve yet to find a pair of boots that are the right length, the right shade of grey and not too wide on the leg. The search continues but in the meantime I’ve styled with my Louis Vuitton boots as they go with everything. I knew when buying these boots that I didn’t intend for them to stay in the box, all fresh and new however I don’t think I anticipated just how much wear out of them I would get which is great and really solidifies the purchase.
Anyway this jumper dress is everything I wanted it to be. The white is really crisp and fresh and it has a very high fold over neck which helps to keep snuggly and warm. It’s probably the softest knit I have ever come across too without that itchy feeling. The length is just right too and I don’t feel swamped by the material.
I’ve added my pink bag for a pop of colour and the gold hardware compliments the neutral tones really well.
Outfit 2 – Pink Knit
As much as Autumn is a time for darker tones such as burgundy, deep greens or burnt orange, I’m keeping things light and bright with a pop of pink now and again. A solid colour knit is a great way to inject some colour into your outfit without it being too much. The pastel pink is beautiful and the material is delicate and soft on the skin.
This jumper is easy to wear day to day with jeans and trousers or can be dressed up with a skirt or even worn over a dress for some extra warmth. I’ve worn off the shoulder on this occasion just for a different look. I’ve kept the outfit simple otherwise with neutral tones.
Outfit 3 – Black Jumper
You really can’t go wrong with a classic black knit for the Autumn/Winter season. It’s effortlessly chic and can be worn for a variety of occasions.
I love the shape of this knit with the high neck, stylish sleeves and it’s just the right length too. On this occasion I’ve styled with a statement pair of jeans. Animal print is everywhere at the moment and I have to admit, I’m getting quite into it.
I wouldn’t normally go for such a bold print on the bottom half but being high waist and skinny on the legs and by adding heels, I think I can just about pull it off. As I’ve said previously, I try and stick to the natural colours of the animal which the print originates as otherwise I find it can quickly look garish. These jeans are a prime example and the zebra print works well with my otherwise monochrome palette.
