The One Jumper Style I Wear More Than Any Other in Winter

January 06, 2021 at 06:15AM

Whether it’s because of our communal craving for all things cosy or a continuation of 2020’s ‘Cottagecore‘ trend, the cable knit jumper has fast become a wintery go-to in the wardrobes of fashion’s finest. Offering plenty of hand-spun, artisanal appeal, it’s a knitwear trend that I wear more than any other in the winter months, and it’s my favourite way to add texture to everything from classic denim to tailored trousers. 

Designers such as Alexander McQueen have brought their own elevated spin to the cable knit jumper, and have particularly embraced a more oversized, chunky silhouette this season. However, high street brands have also jumped on the bandwagon, offering plenty of fresh iterations that cover cardis and roll necks and everything in between. It’s also worth noting that this is a trend that lends itself to buying vintage, and often secondhand versions can look super high-end thanks to their traditional finishes. 

Whatever your budget, there’ll be a cable knitted jumper for you. At the top of my wishlist is & Other Stories’ cropped cable knit cardigan, which will pair perfectly with high-waisted jeans. I’ve also spotted a few expensive-looking styles from the menswear section at M&S (why do men’s jumpers always look so much more premium than women’s?) I’ve also thrown in a few pre-loved pieces for you, because I’m nice like that. Happy scrolling!
