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!

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

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.
