Cosy cashmere, sustainable options and embellished and cutout styles – these are the best black jumpers to get you through the winter months.
A black jumper is anything but boring. If you’re ever indecisive about which colour bag, shoe or even coat to buy, for many people black is always the go-to option. And of course, this is specifically applicable to knitwear.
Of course, a kitsch printed jumper or a colourful cardigan – like the ones favoured by Harry Styles – will brighten up your winter outfits in a flash, but sometimes all you need is a classic black knit.
That doesn’t mean you have to drop the detail, though. A failsafe black knit will go the distance in your wardrobe. You can mix it up with cutout styles, embellishment, chain details and slogans like the ‘Flower Power’ Bella Freud iteration in our edit below.
We can’t imagine why you’d need any more convincing why black knitwear is a winter hero item, but just in case, we’ll let our carefully curated edit of the best ones do the talking from here…
Cos knitted black jumper
This collared knit is flying off the virtual rails. Undoubtedly one of the coolest jumpers to arrive for winter, get it before it inevitably sells out.
Rixo Lula jumper
This retro-inspired collared style ticks off one of this season’s key knitwear trends and we’re big fans.
Aligne cashmere jumper
This isn’t just any roll neck jumper. This is a recycled cashmere roll neck jumper. Fresh from sustainable brand Aligne, this super cosy knit will be an upgrade to your loungewear collection.
Comme Des Garçons cardigan
While it isn’t technically a jumper, take inspiration from the style set and give cardigans the jumper treatment by wearing the buttons done up to the top. Tuck this one into high-waist jeans and lace-up boots.
Hush Meryl jumper
Hush is known to create items that can easily be mistaken for designer. Case in point: this roll neck jumper that you can get your hands on in black or cream.
Bella Freud Flower Power jumper
We can always rely on Bella Freud to bring us a fun slogan jumper. Wear this ‘Flower Power’ knit to inject a bit of fun into your winter wardrobe.
Madeleine Thompson Rideau cardigan
In case you need further proof that black knits aren’t boring, Madeleine Thompson has backed us 100% with this beauty. The bow and collar detail will liven up even the simplest of jeans.
Joules embellished bee jumper
We’ve already made a case for embellished button knitwear this season, and we continue the love-in thanks to Joules. This glitzy sweater deserves a spot in your wardrobe.
Mango Curve jumper with contrast collar
If you’re all for a statement knit then look no further than this Mango style. The white retro collar makes it one happy jumper you can rely on to brighten up gloomy winter days.
