These bright and bold jumpers will make winter a bit less bleak

We’ve picked the best jumpers to keep you snug, stylish and cheerful this winter. 

Now that winter is well and truly here (away with you, Beast from the East!), we need an actual reason to leave the house – and showing off a stylish new knit is as good a reason as any.

Because there’s something about a new jumper that makes us feel slightly smug about braving the cold weather. If you choose the right one, we guarantee it’ll go the distance in your wardrobe, meaning you’ll be able to bring it back out year after year.

Below, we’ve picked out the best staple cashmere from Warehouse and Rejina Pyo, new exclusive slogan styles from Bella Freud, and cool colour-block at & Other Stories and Derek Lam.

Read on for fashion editor-approved knitwear, starting at just £19.99. Go, go, go!

Topshop twist panel jumper

Layer this beauty over a striped roll neck, baggy boyfriend jeans and Western ankle boots for winter. 

Topshop twist panel jumper, £32

Rejina Pyo cashmere turtleneck sweater

Rejina Pyo jumper

We’re all for brightening up gloomy days with a colour-pop knit. This lemon sorbet number will look excellent with checked wide-leg trousers. 

Rejina Pyo cashmere turtleneck sweater, £495

Arket alpaca-blend knitted jumper

It’s one of this season’s must-have hues and it’s as soft as it looks. Add to this the fact it comes in three other colours and we may have just found the perfect everyday knit. 

Arket alpaca-blend knitted jumper, £79

Joseph cropped poncho knit

Joseph tan jumper

This chunky roll neck will keep you so cosy (not to mention chic) this winter. Wear with beige trousers to try out the tonal trend.

Joseph cropped poncho knit, £375

H&M motif jumper

H&M motif jumper

It’s the “Sunday” slogan jumper we would wear any day of the week (rebels, we know). We suggest wearing this grey number with a silky slip skirt and trainers. 

H&M motif jumper, £19.99

Derek Lam colour-block knitted sweater

If you’re a fan of brights then this block knit is for you. Let it do all the talking by teaming with simple jeans.

& Other Stories striped wool-blend sweater

& Other Stories jumper

This colour combo is one of our faves for 2019. Easy way to wear it? With a blocked sweater. Simple. 

& Other Stories Striped Mock Neck Wool Blend Sweater, £79

CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC wool sweater

It’s the jumper you’ve most likely spotted on the street style set, and now it’s on sale. Snap it up at Matches before it disappears from shops forever. 

CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC wool sweater, was £1,698 now £1,018

For Love and Lemons Charlotte turtle neck jumper

For Love an Lemons- jumper-£180-1

Cable knit? Tick. Roll neck? Tick. One of this season’s must-have colours? Tick. We guess this jumper is an all-round winner for winter.

For Love and Lemons Charlotte turtle neck jumper, £181

Ganni mohair striped pullover

All the influencers are obsessed with this cult knit – and so are we. Super cosy and stylish, it’s also now in the Net-a-Porter sale, with over £100 off.

Ganni mohair striped pullover, was £340 now £204

Baum und Pferdgarten Chane jumper

Baum und Pferdgarten jumper

It’s the hue that works for all seasons. Wear for winter with glossy berry shades and switch to sage green and cream come spring. 

Baum und Pferdgarten Chane jumper, £159

Warehouse grey cashmere jumper

Opting for a classic is never a bad idea. You’ll wear a grey, cashmere crew neck knit so many times that you’ll lose count. Note: even better if it’s half price, hey?

Warehouse grey cashmere jumper, £110 now £55

Toga floral-intarsia wool sweater

Toga jumper

Florals aren’t just for spring. Work them in to your winter wardrobe with this soft Toga knit that’s just made for layering over clashing printed dresses. 

Toga floral-intarsia wool sweater, £415

Zara button ribbed sweater

This chic jumper also comes in beige and white, and the gold button detail makes it look way more expensive than it is. We’re sold!

Let this slogan sweater do all the talking and wear it with everything you own. From straight leg jeans to a satin midi, it’ll add interest to any look.

Ah, the argyle knit: the jumper that looks effortless year after year. Thanks to River Island for creating this super cosy roll neck version.
