Cool comeback: all hail the sleeveless jumper

A staple knitwear design from the Seventies, the sleeveless jumper is back, and this season it’s the epitome of cool thanks to Gen Z and viral TikTok fashion trends. Spotted on style-setting celebrities including Kendall Jenner, Harry Styles and Victoria Beckham, sweater vests are a versatile addition to any wardrobe – whether you opt for a block colour or make a statement with quirky patterns.

A V-neck vest, like this one, is great for showing off pretty collars and statement sleeves. Layer a lavender sleeveless knit over a long-sleeved midi dress, cinched in with a narrow belt. On warmer days, slip on over a simple white crew-neck tee with wide-leg jeans and trainers.

So abstract! Gallery-worthy knitwear is in

Turn heads with a graphic knit that wouldn’t look out of place on the walls of the Tate Modern. Consider your jumper a canvas where you can showcase this season’s knitwear trends, from vivid colour blocking to more subtle ombré and space-dye effects.

This striking mock-neck jumper by Autograph has voluminous sleeves and fitted cuffs for extra style points. Pair the vibrant purple palette with deep indigo jeans, or try the monochrome colourway teamed with authentic-wash denim. Simple white trainers complete the look.

Cardigan bae: cute, colourful cardis to fall for

Not so much a trend as a perennial style classic, the cardigan is a year-round staple – especially for those of us who shudder at the very thought of being chilly. Choose a slim-fitting ribbed design like this striped cardi, which looks great worn with ecru jeans or trousers, or a chunky cardigan, perfect to balance out skinny jeans or leggings for a more casual vibe.

Plush hour: maximise your cosy with cashmere

For knitwear that will last you a lifetime, look no further than premium cashmere. Looked after properly, a cashmere jumper will last for years – which is why a timeless shape such as this deep V-neck sweater is a great choice. The other brilliant thing about cashmere is its warmth – despite being lightweight, it has a very high insulation factor, which means it’s ideal for keeping you snug when there’s a chill in the air.

Easy does it: outfit-in-one knitted dresses

Sometimes only the simplest outfit will do, hence the enduring appeal of the one-and-done jumper dress. Offering coverage, warmth and plenty of sartorial impact, a sweater dress is the perfect choice for spring. Opt for a figure-hugging belted design like this cobalt blue dress (which comes in four shades and a choice of lengths) to accentuate curves, or go for a baggier zip-necked style to wear with chunky boots, depending on your personal style.

Ideal for in-between weather, knitted dresses also look great with bare legs and ballet pumps on sunny days – a lightweight trench coat is the only layer you’ll need.
