Style Inspiration: Casual Knitwear...

Hi everyone !
Today by popular demand I'm doing a post about styling 
casual knitwear!
 My blog post here on Friday proved to be my most popular one yet and due to a large amount of inquiries about my camel cocoon cardigan I have designed a mood board to recreate the outfit using similar pieces :)
I bought my own cardigan on a weekend trip to Edinburgh last year.

Jeans/Mango    Bag/DKNY   Cardigan/Miss Selfridge   Top/Mango   Boots/Topshop   Scarf/Oasis

I find this type of knitwear so easy to wear and style and I am on the lookout for some thing similar in black or grey  this A/W. Here are a few more lovely styles ...

Gorgeous cable knit slouchy from Zara

A cerise marled number from H&M

 A fab cable knit polo neck poncho from The White Company

I hope this gives some inspiration for those who asked and as always I'm delighted to receive such great feedback from my followers :)

 The only problem with wearing such cosy slouchy knitwear is that you're in danger of never wanting to take them off :)

  1. i love knitwear and it's a main staple in my fall wardrobe. i also love camel and black together. it always looks great together. love your board :)

  2. I love that DKNY bag.. still looking for a new one. Seems all my choices are very expensive ones so I might need to wait for a sale. The cable knits are perfect for winters here. I know what you mean about not wanting to take it off :)

  3. Love the cable knit from The White Company!

  4. Great knitwear suggestions and I love everything on the mood board - just my kind of day outfit. In fact, I'm wearing a camel cardigan,animal print scarf and tan bag today (but I still haven't found the perfectly fitting boots!) Your cocoon cardigan is lovely - no wonder it was so popular.

  5. Love a big chunky knit myself Anne. Thanks for this blog post - really enjoyed it! Definitely going to check out that pink H&M one next time I'm in town, Avril x

  6. Love knitwear, so cozy when that season comes! Have no clue of how many cardigans I own, and still I always want more (love these examples too)!

  7. Your Friday post was my fave too...that cocoon sweater was amazing! Love the Miss Selfridge one you picked for this collage :)


  8. Nothing here that I do not like, problem is where to find it in rural France, and how far my little pension would go! A cat can look at a queen :-) Take care Diane

    1. Hi Diane...the Miss Selfridge cardigan in the collage is reduced to £15 and they also ship worldwide:)

  9. Hi Anne,

    The cable knits are so warm and cozy for winter and yes, there is a danger of never wanting to take them off.
    Hope you have a lovely week

  10. Thank you so much for the follow,dear.^^
    Follow you back on gfc (357). Do you also follow me on bloglovin?

  11. Nice choices. I'm trying to find the perfect knit, that's not too chunky but chunky enough, and the right length to cover the rear and make it appropriate to wear with leggings.

  12. I knew even before I read that at least one of these fabulous sweaters had to be from Zara

  13. You have great taste! I can't wait to live where there are four seasons so that I can wear boots and pretty sweaters!

  14. Love these pieces. Very pretty and so comfy. These colors are great too.

  15. I have a passion for knits. all kinds. especially the big chunky ones! lovely sweaters.
    Thanks for the gfc follow :)
