Where would our winter wardrobes be without knitwear? Their soft textures, snug silhouettes and unrivalled cosiness makes women’s jumpers a non-negotiable from now until the end of the season - and by that, we mean March at the earliest.
While there’s a practical edge to knitwear, the rise of minimalist dressing saw elevated basics steal the show across the AW23 runways. With that in mind, there’s every chance the next knitted addition to your closet, whether a chunky turtleneck, Fairisle jumper or cosy sweater vest, will be your most-called upon staple - no pressure.
When it comes to choosing the best women’s jumpers, there’s a plethora to pick from, which is why we’ve compiled our top ten candidates to upgrade your jumper draw. So if you’ve vowed to keep your outfit game on point through frosty climes, keep scrolling for our edit of warm jumpers for women who never compromise on good style.
10 of the best women's jumpers for winter
In the run-up to the holiday season, our woollens wishlist wouldn’t be complete without a fairisle jumper. With the temperature drop from autumn, women’s jumpers that play with colour make for easy outfitting, since their bold geometric prints and vibrant designs will add intrigue to pared-back essentials.
It may have the tropes of a Christmas jumper, but our Jolee Fairisle Jumper is too good to limit to one day’s wear. For an everyday ensemble, pair with your favourite denim, be it an on-trend maxi or wide leg jeans, and bring some festive joy into your weekly wardrobe.
2. The Snug Roll-Neck
As the days get shorter, our necklines get higher. A snug roll-neck can always be trusted to keep you cosy from your chilly morning commute to after-dark get-togethers, either as a standalone piece or layered under a roomy jacket or coat, weather depending.
From party picks to everyday essentials, we’re making a statement in our latest collection with jewel tones, bold shapes, and lavish fabrics, and our Jayla Knit Jumper ticks all the boxes for women’s knitwear. In a rich shade that’s not just blue but infamous cerulean, this chunky sweater is essential daywear for dopamine-dressers.
3. The Cable Knit
4. The Half-Zip Jumper
5. The Luxe Hoodie
Where would fashion’s It-girls be without an oversized hoodie for off-duty days? Thrown on under a structured blazer or wide-shoulder coat, what was previously the reserve of athleisure wear is now an everyday staple, particularly when the weather demands your outfit be both stylish and sensible.
Enhance your everyday with the Cable Knit Chevron Hoodie, a pull-over style that’s easy to wear without losing its high-fashion regard. Despite its basic status, there’s nothing quite on par with an elevated hoodie or sweatshirt for women that opt for minimal styling with maximum effect, and this knitted number is equal measures of cool, cosy and comfy.
6. The Ribbed Turtleneck
With a weather shift, there often comes a wardrobe rethink, including if you’ve covered off the basics of winter dressing. From layer-friendly tees and tanks to a chill-beating coat, there are certain core pieces that are a must-have for building cold weather outfits.
In lighter fabrics, a roll-neck jumper is a layering hero, making it one of your hardest-working pieces. Whether in cobalt blue, cream or camel, our Mari Knit Roll Neck Jumper is a coveted soft staple, snugly fitting under tailored blazers as well as knitted vests and other V-necks. Looking for a style shortcut? Complete the look with its matching midi skirt and you’re good to go.
7. The Sweater Vest
Sweater vests have been making the rounds on the fashion circuit for some years now, and that’s not changing for women’s knitwear highlights in AW23. Given their enduring appeal, it's worth opting for a neutral shade that will stay in-style so you can get the most out of your investment. With a crisp white shirt underneath, our Lily Mozart Knit Vest in classic cream is an essential piece for office outfitting, but its polished appearance will earn you entry to any late-night occasion. To secure an invite, simply style with statement accessories like our PU Mini Soft Handbag cut from on-trend red faux leather.
8. The Fluffy Jumper
9. The Colour Pop
The buildable nature of women’s jumpers makes them ideal for elevating outfits with a pop of colour. Plus, it’s also inherently understated, so even those new to the styling game can feel confident to try bolder shades without turning heads for the wrong reasons.
From Barbicore pink to now-trending red, AW23 collections haven’t been short of inspiration to break away from the muted palette that has dominated since the start of the year. With our Kessy Piping Jumpers in shades of fuchsia, red, and cream, we’re buying one in every colour.
10. The Party Look
Think knits are just for day? Think again with our Babysoft Diamante Embroidered Jumper, the missing piece to your next evening ensemble. Subtly embellished with light-reflecting crystals, this streamline silhouette in all-over black does the job of a pretty blouse or silky cami without sacrificing staying stylish over keeping warm. For that tricky but all-too-familiar dress code of smart casual, pair with silk trousers or a slip skirt to achieve the perfect level of polished without looking tryhard.
You’re never short of options when on the hunt for new knits to prep your wardrobe for winter. And what we love best? Women’s jumpers that slot with ease into your ongoing outfit rotation, serving practically chic outfits for all weathers. Delve into our latest women’s knitwear collection for staple styles to wear from home, to the office, to out-on-the-town, including knitted jumpers, cardigans, sweater dresses, and accessories.
