Out of Thousands of High-Street Jumpers, These Are the 27 Most Expensive-Looking

Good knitwear is essential this time of year. We're not here for being inadequately dressed—we'd much rather throw on a cosy jumper over our wares instead of finding ourselves at risk of frostbite. And with so many brilliant woolly options out there, it's never been easier to elevate your look with knitwear.

Best High Street Jumpers: Eni wears a jumper from Zara



Eni wears a cream cable-knit jumper from Zara. 

Now, we're accustomed to designer jumpers being granted It-buy status (a prime example being any and every Ganni knit), but what if we were to tell you the high street has made great sweaters of its own? We're talking the sellout & Other Stories pullover that's been reissued for another season, the M&S cashmere knit that has our editors in a tizzy and the countless cardigans that are now taking centre stage.

Whether it's a jumper-and-jeans combo you wear on repeat or the sweater that was made for layering with a slip skirt and ankle boots, the high street has a plethora of pretty options to choose from. Luckily, we've narrowed down from the thousands out there to an editor-approved bounty of 27 jumpers, neatly categorised by store, that you can buy now and wear year after year.
