If you live in Britain, you likely own around 407 jumpers. Okay, I’m exaggerating, but with a cooler climate and depleting hours of daylight, they’re basically a second skin for those of us who call this little island home. However, volume doesn’t always equal enthusiasm, and when it comes whipping up a jumper look for the 78th day in a row, you might find yourself feeling less than inspired. This is why I’ve decided to lend you a helping hand before things get seriously dire by showcasing the coolest jumper outfits to try in 2023.
If you, too, find yourself falling out of love with the knitwear pieces you already own, I’ve whittled down some key jumper outfits which are sure to reignite your fashion fire. From the trick that makes any outfit look 10/10 (just add these shoes) to the simple layering secret that can ensure you get even more wear out of your favourite dresses, these jumper outfits are where it’s at. Scroll on to see them and to shop any pieces you might need to re-create them.
Style Notes: There’s no denying that matching your strides to the colour of your knit definitely delivers in the style stakes. Try a neutral palette for a subtler approach, then work your way up to bolder hues.
Now this looks seriously cosy.
Gold jewellery keeps this look from feeling too muted.
& Other Stories jeans feature in so many of our editor’s wardrobes.
Brown boots are the perfect finishing touch.
Style Notes: If extra minutes in bed in the morning are what you desire most, then you need to add a knitted co-ord to your wardrobe repertoire. Not only is it toasty, but it’ll also take all of the two minutes to style with your go-to jewellery and favourite boots.
Navy is as timeless as black.
The bag on every editors wish list.
You can mix and match the co-ord pieces with the rest of your wardrobe.
A truly versatile hue.
Style Notes: Statement coats are big news on the style agenda for spring/summer 2022. Make them work for every day by pairing them with a classic knit (think cream cable-knit), straight-leg jeans and cowboy boots.
A trench coat is an autumn staple.
Cable knit jumpers have proved their longevity within the very best wardrobes.
Don’t sleep on H&M denim.
The perfect heel height for all day comfort.
Style Notes: Give glossy separates a new lease of life by wearing them with knitwear that would normally be deemed casual (think chunky roll-necks or cable-knits). The outcome? If it looks anything like the above, I’ll be happy.
The seaming is a nice touch.
An elegant bag you’ll reach for on all occasions.
A black slip skirt is a reliable addition to any wardrobe.
A block heel adds comfort.
Style Notes: Oversized silhouettes are trending, particularly where jumpers are concerned. Pair yours with the wide-leg trousers I’m willing to bet you invested in last season to create a look all the cool types will want to copy.
This comes in a range of brilliant colours.
Comfortable yet elevated.
The handle is adjustable for shoulder or crossbody wear.
Style Notes: Suiting was a big deal for 2021’s party season, so ensure you get the most out of your two-part investment by styling it with a cosy jumper in place of sequins and slinky satin.
Such a great shade.
Now this looks seriously cosy.
Reiss does some of the best tailoring on the high street.
Khaite always gets it right.
Style Notes: It would be wrong not to take a moment to appreciate the timeless outfit combination of jeans and a simple jumper. It might not feel like the most exciting combination, but as Sylvie proves, it can be pretty impactful.
A classic black jumper will serve you for years to come.
This could definitely pass for designer.
These Agolde jeans keep selling out.
These will take you from work to drinks to dinner.
