The hero knit jumper

While it might not sound like the most exciting purchase, the humble knit jumper is having a major fashion moment. The big AW17 runaway shows (from Christopher Kane to Temperlay and Gucci) led the charge for a jumper revival, imagined in new silhouettes, textures and colours. 

Can’t wait? Shop my knit edit below.


Your winter wardrobe isn’t complete without a stylish knit. And despite the overwhelming selection of styles around, I won’t judge you if you opt  for a simple style – because simple doesn’t mean boring. Head to Marks & Spencer for good affordable options that will go with pretty much everything in your wardrobe.

Make your jumper the talking point this season and invest in statement styles. From asymmetric shapes and oversize sleeves to contrasting ribbed knit patterns, lace-up and eyelet detailing.

If you like your knitwear big and cozy then this piece from River Island makes a worthy investment. The bright red looks particularly good worn with my silver metallic jeans. Never thought I’d see the day when I was ready to embrace this trend, but Topshop swayed me.

This cable knit looks equally as chic paired with wellies and jeans for a country weekend getaway or layered over a chiffon dress with knee-high boots for dinner and drinks with your friends.
