These cosy sweaters will actually make you want to wrap up during the freeze

Posted by for Fashion

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

Coats, scarves and gloves have made their way back into our everyday uniforms. It’s getting to the point where it’s so chilly we need an actual reason to force us to leave the house – aside from the 9-5, of course – 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.We’re talking, cashmere, wool blends and ‘it’ knits that will steal the show every time you wear it. 

Below, we’ve picked out the best embellished cropped knit from Zara, sorbet shade from Rejina Pyo, collared cardigan from & Other Stories, and cool colour-block at H&M and Peter Pilotto.

Read on for fashion editor-approved knitwear, starting at just £25. Go, go, go!
