And Just Like That, the Season's Best Jumpers Have Arrived

Best Chunky Knit Jumpers: @greceghanem wears a lilac chunky knit jumper



Now, we find ourselves at that specific point in the year where we have two options before us: going out in a coat without a jumper or going out in a jumper without a coat. Personally, I always opt for the latter for as long as possible. That's mainly because I am and will always be a jumper person, and until the time comes when both are required, jumpers (and umbrellas) are going to serve as my protection from the elements.

For the record, I'm not talking about flimsy knits that do little else other than give my T-shirts a break. I mean big, chunky, Michelin Man–style jumpers that are cosy, comforting and, naturally, very chic. This, however, is a formidable combination and not one you come across every day. Some chunky knits can feel more bulbous than beautiful, while ones that deliver in the pretty stakes often lack the cosy quality I also look for. However, when a jumper does manage to kick off this golden triad, you know it's worth your consideration.

Hot on the pursuit of some new woollies, I've rounded up what I consider the best chunky knit jumpers of the season. With a rainbow of colours and an array of weaves, lengths and fits, scroll on to see and shop 21 of the best chunky knit jumpers around. 


Invest in a great-quality cashmere knit now, and you'll love it for a lifetime. 

The blue cable-knit sweater is such a cool twist on a classic. 

Another season, another Paloma Wool knit that's sure to take over. 

Try wearing it unzipped with a striped high-neck top underneath. 

I am obsessed with this ultra-chunky style. Wear with white denim and cowboy boots.

Purple looks so chic with black, white and denim.

Wear it as a jumper or leave it undone with a simple white t-shirt underneath.

Wear with mini skirts, slip skirts, denim and leggings. 

Pink is the colour of the season!

I just love this braided long-ling sweater. I'll wear mine with leggings and knee-high boots.

A jumper so good, H&M brings it back each year. 

The bigger the jumper, the more layers you can pile on underneath. 

A chunky jumper in a striped pattern will help add a french girl touch to any autumn look.

Pair this chunky style with wide-leg trousers and loafers.

If you're not into the monochrome stripes that are everywhere, try this beige iteration. 

This grey sweater will forever be an autumn/winter wardrobe staple.
