As the evenings draw in and the weather becomes more unpredictable, we start to remember that autumn can be a hard season to dress for. That’s where layering comes in so handy – layering your outfits is perfect for being prepared whatever the weather throws at you – essential in Cornwall! And you might be surprised, but wearing several thin layers can be just as cosy as wearing you favourite chunky fisherman jumper.
For daytime looks try layering bright cardigans to add pops of colour to an outfit. The Tamarisk Cardy is the perfect cable knit cardigan for adding a bit of warmth. Teamed with our Levalsa Skirt, in a warm versatile cord, you can wear this outfit throughout the season whether with bare legs and pumps or tights and boots for cooler days or nights.
Try layering more neutral tones with prints. The Solstice Cardigan is the perfect companion for pretty dresses, such as the long sleeved Cosmos Dress. For cooler days add a shawl or scarf for added warmth. The Flutter Shawl in berry works perfectly with the camellia sage print. If you’re still chilly try adding a top under you dress, here we’ve used the Seasonal Top in mineral.
Pops of colour can brighten up any casual daytime look. The Kohl Rabi Cardigan, with its lovely bright stripes, is perfect for this. This lovely soft mohair cardigan can be thrown over jeans and t-shirts to bring some colour to any outfit.
The Levee Jumper in a nautically inspired knit is a perfect feminine take on the traditional fisherman’s jumper. Layer with basic t-shirts and a cute little collared shirt for the perfect snug look.
A knitted dress can work as a perfect transitional piece throughout the season. Our knitted Woodwick Dress is perfect for those cooler days. Wear with tights and boots for a smart look or dress down with jeans or leggings.
Scarves are a great way to bring some added warmth to outfits. Woven wool scarves are a great lightweight option, bringing colour and warmth to any outfit, and can be easily adapted for the evenings and worn shawl style.
Leather boots are a must have this winter for keeping your feet snug and dry. Paired with jeans for trawling round the coastal paths or worn with a skirt or dress for more dressy occasions. Our knee high Trundle Boots in soft suede are the perfect feminine solution for cold feet in wintery weather.
If that’s still not enough and you’re feeling the chill, try finishing your look off with a gilet or Coat from our RAIN collection.
The Greenwich Gilet is perfect for smarter occasions and works perfectly layered over your favourite knitwear. With its fitted silhouette it will allow you to retain a more flattering silhouette.
The Hedgerow Coat will add a dash of colour on those drab, drizzly days and take you right through the season.
