From half-zip styles to chunky cable knits, these are the best new-season jumpers to beat the chill in style
The half-zip knit
The half-zip jumper can be worn unzipped for a collared look or to reveal a contrasting layer below or fully zipped up to keep out icy blasts. Team a pale blue half-zip jumper with grey joggers to give last year’s loungewear favourites a cosy upgrade. Bundle up in a hooded puffer coat and chunky boots if you absolutely have to leave the house. Get knitwear purchases right with our buying guide.
The merino-wool layering knits
Layering two lightweight extra-fine merino-wool knits in the same colour adds warmth without bulk, keeping your look polished while you take on the chill. Start with a merino-wool roll-neck as a base layer and add a merino-wool polo cardigan on top. For a texture contrast, wear with black cords and finish with classic white trainers.
The lambswool crew-neck
Give jeans and a jumper outfits an upgrade by swapping sweatshirts with a light blue crew-neck crafted from naturally warm, super-soft, extra-fine lambswool. Add a white T-shirt underneath as the temperature drops and team with slim-fit stretch jeans in darkest indigo. Elevate your sock game with a pair of striped socks in a contrasting colour and finish with chunky white trainers.
The cable-knit roll-neck
With its chunky knit and cosy colour palette, this classic cable-knit roll-neck will be the centrepiece of your WFH and off-duty outfits from now until spring. Team with classic black corduroy trousers and chunky knitted socks to keep toes toasty. Chuck on a borg-lined black corduroy shacket, black trainers and a grey and black wool cap when you brave the outdoors.
