“Go back to nature with knits this season and add animal motifs to your must-haves. When you’re not wrapping up in woodland warmers, nod to chunky Nordic knits and polo neck jumpers in peppered marl for your laid back layering pieces. Bejeweled basics and standout sequin sweaters transform your knitwear for nights out,” according to boohoo.com.
