With Autumn coming in full swing we here at 4th think it’s time to talk all about knits. After what has seemed like a non-existent summer (thank you COVID), we have been thrown straight from pyjama’s and loungewear into transitional dressing, and to be honest we have felt a bit lost. So, after a minute of blind panic we have put together this handy guide for 4 ways to work that knitwear. Ready for all of us to re-emerge from our homes in reckless style.
BACK IN THE OFFICE
As much as we’ve all been loving lounging about at home, it’s time to get back to work and into that office. As much as we may be dreading those 6am alarms, there is no need to panic over that back to business fit.
Perfect for layering under a blazer, our Indigo knitted bodysuit will have you mixing style and comfort whilst your serving those desk duties. The high neck is ideal for keeping things appropriate but try layering over a necklace for that final attention to detail. With our Indigo being a fine gauge knit it is ideal for wearing under a fitted trouser or tailored short, ensuring your workwear worthy for the week ahead. So, dust off that handbag, set that alarm and get back to working both the office and your autumn knits.
FOR A POP OF COLOUR
If you’re anything like us girls at the 4th office, then you will also be all too familiar with an increasingly black wardrobe. Now there’s nothing wrong with a bit of monotone dressing, which to be honest we love, but sometimes a pop of colour can go a long way to refreshing your look.
One of our all-time favourites for injecting that colour is our Jasper knitted top. Featuring a thick ribbed fabric, opt for the rich teal to spice things up and pair with some leather trousers for a seriously on trend outfit. Whereas summer is all about putting brights on brights, Autumn calls for an offset with a soft neutral. Switch out a dark trouser for a lighter cigarette style such as our Lennon tailored trouser and add a matching trench for a weather appropriate fit.
Gone are the days when we could stay in our sweats and we are welcoming back the return of the day-to-day wardrobe. Something we all value is a throw it on fit. Ideal for when your rushing out the house and just want to crack on with those errands, one of our staples has to be our Finn backless dress.
Go bare legged and pair with some chunky leather boots making it ideal for those warm fall days, or alternatively layer over your go-to leggings for guaranteed comfort and style. An everyday essential, Finn can also be dressed up for when those days turn into dinner, just swap out those shoes for a strappy heel and you are good to go.
DINNER AND DRINKS
It might have been a while, but our social lives seem to be returning slowly but surely and with that so is our last-minute outfit stress. It can be hard trying to figure out how to work a knit for an evening occasion and dinner and drinks is no exception. Our Romy off the shoulder knit is the ideal top for shimmying those shoulders when the occasion calls but also keeping it low key enough for a sit-down meal.
We are loving how our angel @sofiamcoelho has styled it up with our Emelia shorts, the combination of leather and soft knit is perfect for nailing that layered texture for Autumn. Add some mid/ thigh high boots to add that edge that says ‘I don’t need anyone to buy me that drink.’ We suggest accessorizing with some chunky gold jewellery for that final finishing touch.
