How to Choose a Jumper for Women in the UK - Buying Guide

It's crucial to pick the right jumper at the beginning of the season, as it's something you'll probably be wearing on repeat until springtime. In this section, we're going to introduce you to the different options available so you know exactly what you're looking for before you buy.

Consider Which Necklines Suit You Best

When it comes to jumpers, there are several different necklines to consider, and it's useful to figure out which ones suit you the best or which would suit certain occasions. We're now going to quickly go through the most popular styles and their pros and cons.

V-Necks and Crew Necks Flatter Larger Busts, Roll Necks Can Soften a Silhouette

V-Necks and Crew Necks Flatter Larger Busts, Roll Necks Can Soften a Silhouette

Subtle details can make a difference to an overall look, which is why it's a great idea to know which necklines look best on you. If you have a large bust, V-necks or crew necks are often the most balancing and flattering necklines. It can be tempting to go for a high neckline to feel more covered, but the panel effect can make large breasts look even larger!


For those with a smaller bust or an athletic figure, a high neck jumper can soften your silhouette. Rollnecks can look fabulous on taller women or those with mesomorphic figures who might struggle to feel comfortable in something more revealing like a V-neck.


Bear in mind, however, that this is just a guide. Women's bodies vary so much, so remember to follow your own instincts and preferences because nothing looks as good as confidence!

A Pullover With a Zip Can Be Both Convenient and Contemporary

A Pullover With a Zip Can Be Both Convenient and Contemporary

For a less traditional option, how about a zipped pullover? They have an extremely casual feel, great for keeping you warm on country trails, camping, or generally dashing around! Depending on the garment, some have a sporty feel to them whilst others perfect the contemporary minimal look that's so popular right now.


A type of jumper that makes you feel cosy just looking at it, zipped pullovers are excellent for layering. Though ideal on their own during the milder autumn months, pullovers with zips look and feel great under winter coats, too.

Opt for a Cable Knit for a Classic Look

Opt for a Cable Knit for a Classic Look

Cable knit jumpers have a textured weave that makes them a little more interesting-looking, and not to say warmer, than your usual sweater. Also known as the Aran jumper, the style was invented at the turn of the 20th century when fisherman's wives in Ireland learned to knit the intricate patterns with lambswool to make jumpers, hats, socks and vests.


With a down-to-earth feel, cable knit jumpers go well with jeans and heavy boots for a workwear aesthetic, or simply as a laid-back weekend outfit. 


However, as Vogue and small British designers have popularised them and began making their own takes, they are also seen as a quintessentially British look. Over jeans, a skirt or a dress, cable knits are a classic!

Consider the Cut and Occasion: Pick Fitted Jumpers or Balloon Sleeves for a Feminine Feel

Consider the Cut and Occasion: Pick Fitted Jumpers or Balloon Sleeves for a Feminine Feel

Like most items of clothing, the style you go for will be influenced by whether you're looking for a new jumper to wear at the office, to run errands in, or as a style statement. Oversized jumpers or those with a looser fit are great for lounging around in but aren't always suitable for work.


If you're someone who likes to look a little more dressed up or you do require a smarter outfit for work, the depths of winter can be tricky as our main instinct is just to bundle the hell up! However, once it's full-on jumper season, there are certain cuts that look chic and are great worn out in the evening, too.


Balloon sleeves add interest to a jumper, creating a demure shape. Jumpers with a slimmer or more regular fit tend to look more sophisticated and dressed up for those times when a jumper is unavoidable. You might also like to try a bolder or more intricate print or knit to take you effortlessly from day to night. 

From Cashmere and Cotton to Polyester and Polyamide, It's All About the Material

From Cashmere and Cotton to Polyester and Polyamide, It's All About the Material

Jumpers can be made from natural materials like cotton, cashmere, wool or alpaca fleece. Alternatively, they can be made entirely from synthetic materials like acrylic, viscose, polyamide or polyester.


These days, most jumpers you'll come across are made from a blend or mix of both natural and synthetic fabrics. This combination can create the perfect balance of softness and warmth whilst being durable and not overly spendy!


However, sometimes a jumper made entirely from synthetic material can pill over time, gain a gleam to the fabric or lose its shape. This really depends on the material and the quality, but a blend can be best for a long-lasting item you can wear again and again.

Check Out the Care Instructions Before Buying

Check Out the Care Instructions Before Buying

Before making your purchase, you might want to think about how easily, and how often, you want to be able to wash your jumper. Some jumpers made with natural materials such as cotton or wool need to be hand-washed. This helps to keep the shape of the jumper and prevent the fabric from pilling. 


However, if you don't fancy hand-washing your jumper, you can always look for one that is machine washable. As long as you check the label to see what temperature is best, you'll be good to go.

    While ordinarily associated with rugby fans, yachting families or the outdoorsy types, we think it’s fair to say that the humble gilet (otherwise known as a padded vest or bodywarmer) has got its fair share of criticism over the years. However, with the rise of gorpcore, functional clothing has now crossed over into the mainstream. The gilet is a surprisingly versatile garment, capable of being worn as an outer layer in the early autumn months or under a coat in the winter. It's high time every bloke had a gilet or two in their wardrobe, but which one should you pick?
