6 Ways to Wear the Burnished Pattern Collection

After a long (and hot) summer – it’s finally time to return back to cozy knits like sweaters, long layering garments and cowls to keep warm. And our new Burnished collection is chock-full of 16 designs to get you inspired for the cool, breezy autumn weather. Need a bit of inspiration on how to dress up these splendid knits? We’ve got 6 ways to wear Burnished here for you – let’s start with a cool-weather staple, the scarf!

CHALET SCARF by Megan Goodacre

Burnished-Chalet-Scarf-2ORANGE CRUSH: Warm, autumnal colors get a classic twist when paired with navy for a touch of contrast while the unexpected pop of bright orange in the form of daring pants makes a bold statement and pulls the look together.

Burnished-Chalet-Scarf-1WINTER PROMENADE: Endlessly versatile, a scarf goes with you from crisp autumn evenings through chilly winter days. Pair this scarf with a classic white wool coat, your favorite jeans and riding boots – and voila! You’re ready to stroll through the city with style.

POUA PULLOVER by Hilary Smith Callis
Burnished-Poua-Sweater-1BRIGHTLY BALANCED: Striking a perfect balance of brights and patterns, this look lets you have fun with color and style while looking polished and ready to go from the office to dinner with friends. Add a sparkly necklace and some gold bangles for that last finishing touch.

Burnished-Poua-Sweater-2SWEET AND CHIC: Sweaters aren’t just meant for pants, they love getting dressed up with skirts too! Pair a dark, solid skirt with cute retro-style heels to create a look that is sweet and chic. Oh, and don’t forget something sparkly.

ROUNDSTONE COAT by Triona Murphy

Burnished-Oslavia-Sweater-Jacket-2COZY CHIC: Pair this copper-colored jacket with bold pants and a bright blouse for a winning cozy chic combo. Accents of gold break up the large blocks of bright colors while adding a refined touch for a work-ready ensemble.

Burnished-Oslavia-Sweater-Jacket-1ART SCHOOL COOL: Cabled cardi meets classic stripes and leggings for a look that is comfortable and easy-to-wear without ever sacrificing style – the perfect outfit to take you from early morning classes or errands to dinner and more. Chunky ankle boots are a statement necklace tie the look together from head to toe.

    This is a completely brilliant idea!!! I often see a single accessory or garment I love and then struggle with how to put it together with an outfit. Awesome job, Knit Picks!!! 🙂

    Please keep this “ways to wear” feature going because I absolutely love it! Not every outfit that you put together is 100% my personal taste but seeing these outfits put together really helps get the gears in my brain spinning about outfits that I could put together. Keep up the good work!

        The links for Burnished are broken again. I love the knitted garments displayed in “how to wear it” fashion. Brilliant.

    I love the new collection! I must work on my knitting skills so I can make every piece. =) In addition to the beautiful knitwear, this post has some great shoes… =)

    Now this is exactly what I need to “see” a yarn, view it paired with an outfit. Super marketing idea!
