12 Expensive-Looking Knitwear Buys From H&M, Arket & Uniqlo

It's official: It's bloody cold outside (technical meteorological term) and our inner thermostats have switched from cosy winter layers into full-blown batten-down-the-hatches survival mode. Suddenly our small selection of old jumpers and saggy cardis is seeming laughably insufficient—mission Get Warm has now commenced.

To help you on your way, we've been scouring the high street, trying to find the most expensive-looking (but purse-friendly) jumpers that will fulfil all your cold snap needs. Our results show that Arket, H&M and Uniqlo are looking particularly good in the knitwear stakes this season. Arket is fab for super-warm alpaca-blend pieces and chunky fabrics, H&M meanwhile is mixing it up with cable knits and stripes, and finally we've plundered the menswear section of Uniqlo (yes really) for luxe cashmere and classic fits. Scroll down to see the 12 knitwear pieces we want to get our hands on this week.
