Inspired by: Knits

With October in full swing and summer officially turning its last page for 2014 in a brief warm spell last week, we thought there could be no greater time than now to share our forever inspiration for autumn: knits! During a normal week in our blogging life, we search all corners of the internet for the best fashion inspiration to share with you guys and seriously, for the last few weeks, we keep gravitating towards more of the same: knits, knits and more knits.

So, rather than staying distracted and spending countless hours just dreaming about what our new favourite sweater for this fall and winter will be, we thought it would be best to lean into the obsession and bring some of our favourites over here.

We’re talking about chunky knits, cropped knits, small knits and oversized knits, sweaters, cardigans, ponchos and capes! Basically, we’re into anything that will keep us dry and warm for the next several months. In fact, as soon as we finish with this post, we may head right out to find some of these inspired looks to add to our own wardrobes!


Often disregarded as just a comfort piece, knit sweaters are constantly in the process of being reinvented every Fall/Winter season, it seems. This year, we have seen enough sweaters, ponchos and capes to convince us that they are no longer just about comfort (though that is a huge perk, if you ask us!); knits are street-style and office-day ready in the same breath and at the same time, are the first thing we can’t wait to slip into on the weekend.

Without sounding dramatic, we are really unsure if we could make it through a week in the fall or winter without our knits.

But before we start filling your mind with all things cozy, now’s a great time to remind you that knits are fussy to clean, so please bring them to us and we will make sure that they look their best. At Parkers, you can probably already see that we care about clothing and it shows in our work as clothing care specialists in Toronto.

And, just because it is tiny knitted perfection, how about this darling tot-sized poncho?

We find many people love knitted wear, but hate the extra TLC many garments or fabrics require. “Hand wash”, “delicate cycle”, “lay flat to dry”, and “dry clean only” – these are terms that turn a lot of people off of really wonderful knit pieces, but we are in the business of changing that!

As clothing care specialists we want to make it possible for you to enjoy your clothes – and not just worry about them. This fall and winter, bring your knits in to us and we will make sure they come back to you in pristine wearing condition.
