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!
Embellished sweaters are the ones you can wear for the office and take through to evening.
Add this cropped beauty over a sleek slip dress with mules. Note: it’ll look so chic with red and burgundy.
Butter yellow is key this season and it’ll surprisingly go with lots of hues in your existing wardrobe. Team with tan trousers, a grey wool skirt or try it with a deep burgundy for a colour clash.
Classic, timeless, and it will go with everything in your wardrobe for the foreseeable future. You can’t fault a camel cashmere knit.
Zip up knitwear is big news this season. Not only do they look so good with jeans or skirts, they’re also perfect for adding a knit roll neck underneath for extra warmth.
Marks and Spencer
It’s time to embrace a festive argyle knit. Look to M&S for an affordable option that will look great with a fitted pair of jeans.
& Other Stories
The collared cardigan you didn’t know you needed, until now. Worn with light wash jeans, slip skirts or over dresses – it’s the style to rely on.
If you’re looking for a light knit you can layer under dresses, shirts and even other jumpers, then this is it. Thanks Loewe.
Isabel Marant Étoile
We advise wearing this cream knit with straight leg trousers and Chelsea boots. Although it’ll look just as good layered over a printed dress with knee-high boots, too.
Animal print isn’t going anywhere, a way to incorporate it into your winter wardrobe is with a cool-girl cardigan.
Style with a roll neck top underneath, slouchy leather trousers and chunky Chelsea boots.
Shop Topshop animal marking knitted jumper, £39
We’re all for brightening up gloomy days with a colour-pop knit. This lemon sorbet number with draped detail will look effortlessly chic with checked wide-leg trousers.
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 five other colours and we may have just found the perfect everyday cardigan.
Tip: style as a top by wearing it on its own – it’s the chicest way to wear the cardie this season.
This chunky roll neck will keep you so cosy (not to mention chic) this winter. Wear with beige trousers and lace up boots for an effortless daytime look.
If you’re a fan of brights then this embroidered knit is for you. Let it do all the talking by teaming with simple jeans or a matching camel skirt with knee high boots.
Burnt orange is a wintery hue that can act as a neutral or a bright in your wardrobe. Keep it tonal by teaming with tan and orange hues or clash with floral or check prints to keep it statement.
Pastels aren’t just for warmer months, incorporate them into your autumn/winter wardrobes by teaming with cosy fabrics. Think cord, leather and suede and you’ll nail the look.
Tip: a v-neck sweater is perfect to layer over a roll neck jumper.
