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…
