We're all familiar with the French obsession with denim and ballet pumps, and the Italian fixation on standout trends like leopard print and feathers. However, there's one thing we Brits know better than anyone else, and that's good knitwear. When you consider the fact that we spend 90% of the year bundled up underneath a jumper, it's little wonder must-have knits are snapped up almost instantly. And that was certainly the case with & Other Stories's varsity jumper which swiftly became one of 2018's must-have buys.
I first clocked the knit seen on We the People Style's Jessie Bush. The rust-hued mohair jumper—complete with contrasting varsity-inspired stripes—looked so luxe that I assumed it had to be designer. However, as you've likely guessed, it was actually from & Other Stories.
The price tag (coupled with the fact that it's utterly gorgeous) meant, as expected, it didn’t stick around for long. But as luck would have it, it's now been reissued for 2019 in not one but two new colourways.
Be it jeans or printed dresses, there's no outfit one of theses jumpers won't significantly improve. The hardest decision will be choosing which shade to invest in first.
If the preppy stripes aren't your thing, there are plenty of other chic & Other Stories pullovers to shop. Keep scrolling to see them for yourself.
