Let’s be honest. Winter can be pretty miserable at times. Cold, often wet (thanks, England) days and long, dark nights can make it hard to motivate ourselves to get out and do the things we usually enjoy—exercising, catching up with friends, and even going on your favourite coffee run. It takes a concerted effort to focus on the things that do bring us joy in the winter months. Maybe that’s an indulgent roast dinner by a pub fireplace or a Sunday afternoon in front of Netflix snuggling your dog. Me? I love a good cosy jumper. Honestly, I can tell you now. Add a fluffy, chunky or snuggly knit to your collection, and suddenly, all cold-weather activities become a lot more bearable.
Even fashion expert Alexa Chung showcased her cosiest jumper on Instagram lately, and ever since, I’ve been keeping a mental list of the best styles I’ve come across, both online and on a couple of recent trips to Oxford Street. Of course, knitwear is hitting the stores thick and fast now that the clocks have gone back and the temperature has dropped significantly. Everyone from H&M and Zara to Net-a-Porter and MATCHESFASHION.COM has some gorgeous styles I just want to wrap myself up in, and no doubt, you will too.
