THE shift from summer to autumn is home to the "middle man” of dressing.

You don't want to dust off your winter coat but you can no longer swish around in a sun dress - queue the light knit. Here is how to style lightweight knitwear so you look your best.

A turtleneck is classic and often associated with Parisian style.

Designed in a light and breathable fabric made with natural fibres, it can hug your figure and trap heat on cooler afternoons. Paired with a blazer, and on trend in a pinstripe or a soft block colour, the turtleneck is the best casual basic that you can dress up or down.

Wrap dresses, made legendary by fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg, are the ultimate feminine silhouette. Taking inspiration from this, an autumnal option comes in the form of wrap cardigans.

Flattering at the waist and with a low pointing neckline, this is the reinvented cardigan that can be thrown on over anything.

Wrapped over silky tops or even just worn bare underneath and tucked into a skirt, you will be ready for the seasonal change with another stylist's basic.

After versatility? The jumper dress is a perfect fashion hybrid created for dressing in the transitional seasons. Made in lightweight wools this wardrobe essential is an all-in-one item that will keep you warm.

Belted at the waist or left in a shift shape, the jumper dress is an effortless throw-on piece for those evenings on a boat or for when having drinks at the beach. It's the one-stop knitwear staple that you need.
