I hate to be dramatic, but the beginning of winter is the literal worst. In the upcoming months, mild excitement builds at potentially buying a new forever coat, the thrill of layering, and all the stompy boots we might be wearing. All of this brief anticipation is squashed when the first cold day of autumn is an extremely rude awakening, and when you live in an 100-year-old mission building made entirely of brick like myself, 20 degrees feels more like 10. Which means jumpers are and will be on high rotation for the coming months until we can say farewell to the uninspiring grip that is Australian winter. Below, are the ones we’ll be stocking up on this season.
For the transitional times, consider a sweater vest. We’re petitioning to bring this overlooked item back in. What’s not to love? Warm on the torso, airy on the extremities. This style in knitted wool argyle is all kinds of fun.
Reminding us of vintage Ralph Lauren and preppy dressing, this oversized ivory knit is versatile and luxurious. Pair with lounge pants for a put together at-home outfit or layer with suit pants and a coat for maximum warmth.
Autumn sexiness, if we’ve ever seen it. Anything ribbed is the way to go when dressing for allure, pair with a high neck for modesty and contrasting…boob detailing makes for a momentous evening look, although perhaps not office appropriate.
A true, reliable classic. Pure cashmere at a truly affordable price point is near unbeatable in our books. We prefer the men’s cut for a slouchier fit and muted colour palette. When looked after, these babies last forever.
Heavyweight fleece in a classic cut. Essentially an elevated version of the humble hoodie, this style is both cozy and mostly office appropriate. Available in a range of colours with matching sweatpants should you need, this is a Sunday attire no-brainer.
The perfect neutral pullover for everyday wear, this guy can be worn with almost anything. Constructed from a luxurious mohair wool blend, this pullover is perfect for the cosiest layering. Ribbed neck and hemlines mean it's perfect for throwing on under a coat or simply relaxing at home in.
