I’ve spent a fair proportion of the week trawling the internet for the best winter jumpers – ordering them, trying them on and (in 90% of cases) sending them back. My ideal jumper, this year, has a high neck (or cowl neck, turtle neck, whatever) to detract attention away from my middle, and it has a pleasingly chunky knit that feels and looks luxurious. Here are my top three…
The cable-knit cowl-neck jumper from New Look, £34.99. What a total bargain. Everything about it is chunksville and I love it – a huge neck to hide in (though you have to arrange it properly otherwise it looks like a neck brace) and oversized cable knit that makes this look loads dearer than it is. Find it online here – I’m wearing a medium.
The contrast roll-neck from Hush, £99. Made from the softest wool, this is the ultimate cosying-up jumper and Mr AMR’s top pick because he says it makes me look a bit “punky”, whatever that means. Looks great with black jeans and boots, so it’s a very easy “throw it on” kind of knit that’s perfect for casual weekends. Find it online here.
Patchwork Roll Neck Jumper from Abercrombie & Fitch, £78 here. Gorgeous snowy wool, very soft, and a sloppy cowl neck that sits just right without any need for faffing. It’s more fitted on the body than the others which you may or may not like, but it’s still far from tight. Cosy, comfy and just passable as a “Christmas Jumper” if you’re getting roped into that business… Find it here.
