Oversized knitwear

By Luke Raymond, 5 October 2014

Come October, we’re programmed to think autumn, crunchy leaves underfoot and fireside natter. But now a second wave of summer has hit, leaving us all in a weird-weather conundrum. Have no fear, though: summer’s longline trend has ‘transitioned’ (or continued, for non-fashion folk) into the cooler months.

Moving effortlessly from oversized tees and shirts to equally lengthy knitwear, we’ve pulled together a selection of the top thigh-warming yarns to don during this tricky in-between time.

A subtle update on the humble cardigan, designers have moved the granddad staple into trending territory with a slightly longer length. Ripe for layering, its charcoal-grey colour and brushed texture will work as well over a longline white tee as it does under a lightweight mac.

Sitting somewhere between a T-shirt and knitwear, this lightweight long-sleever is an easy, breezy way to take on oversized in autumn. Slip it under a bomber or even a blazer for a night out or rock it all day long with a slightly longer-line white tee underneath. Grey wool trousers and thick-soled shoes will finish your look nicely.

Bomber? Check. Longline? Check. Perforated? Check. Hit three trends at once with this bad boy and keep it Kanye with a longline black T-shirt, scuffed-up skinny jeans and some black high-tops.

Sitting way up at the more fashion-forward end of the spectrum, wear this longline mesh knit and you'll reap the rewards of a sartorial risk taker. A grey T-shirt underneath will protect your modesty while a black denim jacket taps into the layering trend doing the rounds and will, just as crucially, keep you cosy.
