Jumpers through winter are as much compulsory as hot chocolate, burgundy lips and bobble hats. Not only do they keep you cosy and warm, but they’re stylish too.
Catwalks for autumn/winter 2017 were flooded with new and interesting takes on knitwear, with one-shouldered designs, cut-out shoulders and extra thick cable features.
This year it’s all about keeping warm whilst in style and for that, we couldn’t be more joyous.
Shop some of our favourite picks of the jumpers on the high street that you can buy now and keep you snug as the temperatures begin to drop.
Chunky, cable knit and oversized designs are some of the more classic looks, whilst metallic jumpers and cold-shoulder designs are definitely more trend led.
Let your metallic jumper take you from work to the bar this season, and amp up the style with some leather too.
Turtleneck jumpers are perfect to layer under dresses but can make just as much of a style statement with your favourite jeans too.
Knitwear trends for autumn/winter
Oversized sweaters definitely come with the advice the bigger the better. These boho-chic styles look great with skinny pants, jeans and miniskirts all to help balance out the look.
Big sleeves were detailed at Prabal Gurung, whilst Michael Kors was all about oversized everything, the chunky knitwear came in the ultimate statement pieces.
We love Victoria Beckham's two-tone look with burgundy puff sleeved polo neck with pleated red skirt, the leather gloves add an extra statement to the look.
The one-shouldered designs are another standout favourite for us, they might not be extremely practical, but they pack a punch in the style department.
How to wear
Keep it classic and simply by wearing your knitwear with your favourite jeans this winter, you could also dress it up with leather skirts and trousers. A bare leg, leather skirt, polo neck jumper and heeled boots are the perfect casual, yet sexy date-night look.
Don’t forget to layer your jumpers over shirts too, this is a look that’s easily worn to work too. Easily adding extra warmth without running your smart office style, just pick a finer knit so you don’t feel too bulky and can still wear a jacket over the top.
Play up textures and pair your knitwear with this season’s must-have velvet pieces too.
The best thing about knitwear is that there are so many styles, designs, colours, fabrics and more to choose from, so there’s literally something for everyone. From cut-out shoulders and extra-long sleeves to the perfect turtleneck, these sweaters will keep you warm all season long.
