We Can't Help It—We Suddenly Want This "Dad" Jumper

This year, dads have become unlikely style icons, as suddenly it's hip to be square. Demna Gvasalia decided to put actual dads on the runway, and editors wore fleeces, plastic anoraks in primary colours and "ugly," practical trainers to fashion week. The latest "dad" item that we want to wear is typically more Charles Tyrwhitt than Topshop.

Influencers such as Lucy Williams and Lizzy Hadfield have been wearing a humble cream knit with a buttoned-down collar from the J.W.Anderson x Uniqlo collaboration. We imagine most papas will have jumpers with buttoned-down shawl collars and half-zip necklines you can borrow, but we've also spied plenty in oatmeal and caramel colours from J.Crew, Ralph Lauren and M&S that will slot right into your wardrobe. Keep scrolling to see how influencers are styling these "dad" jumpers, and shop our edit of the best around.
