Cowl, turtle and polo – autumn knitwear is all about the neck
This autumn has seen high demand for knitwear that keeps you cosy. And it’s a style than is bound to keep you warm and stay on trend right through winter too.
our Pure Silk Ribbed Turtle Neck seems to never go out of fashion. Also available in gorgeous aubergine as well as 11 other colourways, It’s proven to be a very popular choice this autumn and is one of those pieces that also works well in winter, worn under a jacket, gilet or sweater.
Patra customers have also been stocking up on our gorgeous Soft Cowl Neck Jumper. The great thing about this look is how versatile it can be, easily teamed with jeans, trousers or a skirt.
The colour of the moment
Aubergine, deep burgundy and rich raisin are huge colour trends this autumn, and set to continue into winter. If you want to stay contemporary without being a fashion victim, this tone is perfect. It suits everyone and is such an easy way to brighten up dull autumnal weather. We saw these shades on the catwalks and they’ve now proven popular in the wider marketplace. At Patra this colour has proven to be a big hit so far, with many of our most popular items available in these modern shades.
Knee high boots
There is no better way to update your autumn wardrobe than with a new pair of knee high boots. This has been a huge UK trend so far this season. And the perfect accompaniment to a great pair of boots is a warm jersey dress.
Our Patra Jersey Print Dress is beautifully tailored to flatter every angle and made of soft jersey fabric that doesn’t cling. The most popular dress this season, with a flattering length and attractive shaping.
A touch of class
A big trend for autumn was shirts and blouses, worn under knitwear with the shirt collar on show. Take our Pure Silk Shirt, with a smooth, silky and elegant finish – this basic collared shirt completes the wardrobe effortlessly. It is a versatile product that can be worn for work or dressed up for dinner. And when worn under knitwear the breathability of silk means that you can layer up without feeling too weighed down.
Unbeatable base layers
Our incredible range of silk underwear was also in high demand over the autumn. This Silk with Stretch Camisole Vest and our Silk Vest with Wide Straps have been flying off the shelves. With jumper season upon us, these silk under layers work well under a button-through cardigan or sweater, adding warmth without the thickness of cotton underwear.
Sparkle in silver
Another colour trend that we first saw on the AW15 runways and then on the high street was silver. And two of our popular products this autumn, our diamond quilted Silk Gilet and Silk Thermal Top and Long Johns are both available in this on-trend tone. The gilet is practical and supremely comfortable. Functional and fashionable, it’s great for autumnal walks and enjoying the great outdoors.
Our Women’s Silk Thermal Long Johns and Long Sleeved Top are already firm favourites and true winter essentials. Sensationally soft and comfy, our customers often wear them to bed and enjoy their smooth warmth all night long.
It is so easy to understand why these pieces are loved by our customers – contemporary colour tones and clever designs means that they instantly update your wardrobe. But it isn’t just about the way they look that makes you come back for more, by using all-natural fabrics to create beautiful finished garments our products are long-lasting luxury pieces at affordable prices.
These essential autumn-winter pieces will keep you looking and feeling your best until well into 2016.
