Knitwear understandably dominates a majority of winter wardrobes—but never before has it been quite so directional, or unusual enough to warrant photographing, nonstop. From bold, jumbo shapes to cheery rainbow stripes, slogan sweatshirts to cool caramel crewnecks worn with white jeans—jumpers have never looked so alluring.
While you may think that the turn of a New Year is not the time to invest in the cosy stuff (wrong!), just one look at Instagram and a few of our favourite fashion influencers feeds and you'll spot a wave of covetable styles to tempt us to invest in just one more. Plus, with the highly unpredictable weather (mild one minute, freezing the next—sound familiar?), it's likely we'll be wearing said It knits well into April.
Whether you're looking for a little pre-spring pick-me-up or a new hero to snuggle up to, these impeccably dressed style stars have provided plenty of inspiration. Keep scrolling for our edit of the best jumpers to shop (and wear) now.
