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 cardigans 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, Jigsaw and Uniqlo are looking particularly good in the knitwear stakes this season. Jigsaw is all about the elevated classics, 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. Scroll down to see the 16 knitwear pieces we want to get our hands on this week.
