The freshness of spring and the warmth of summer are great but, as far as we’re concerned, autumn, with its vibrant colours and cosy jumpers, is by far the most stylish season of the year. And, with an almost overnight drop in temperature having us already reaching for last year’s sweaters, that’s all the more reason to invest in a wardrobe of chic new knitwear for the upcoming months. Here’s our pick of the best women’s jumpers for autumn 2023…

The best roll-neck jumpers

Perhaps the most sophisticated of all jumper silhouettes, the humble roll neck is the piece to be seen in this season thanks to a series of innovative design upgrades. Necklines, for example, have been given the high-end treatment courtesy of Courrèges – where interest is added via a subtle logo patch – and Totême, whose oversized sweater features stylish side splits and a transformable neckline that can be worn up or down. You’ll turn to both for effortless boardroom-ready elegance. For weekends, the saccharine sweetness of Sea’s crochet-detailed roll neck is the ideal foil for your stompiest winter boots. Alternatively, opt for Marni’s relaxed number with contrast stitching, sure to brighten up dull winter days.

The best patterned jumpers

Block colours are all well and good but, in our humble opinion, knitwear is the perfect place to express a bit of personality with your style – and that means colour and pattern. If you wouldn’t describe your everyday look as flashy, dip your toe in with Alanui’s take on the traditional Fair Isle sweater or Acne Studios’ off-beat take on checks. Feeling brave? Alessandra Rich’s fuzzy embellished zebra sweater and Stella McCartney's equine-themed jumper are as bold as they come.

The best cashmere jumpers

Not for nothing does cashmere have a reputation for being the softest, most luxurious knit around. Simultaneously lightweight and warm, it’s the perfect option for introducing layers into your workwear wardrobe. Opt for solid hued options, as offered by Equipment and Barrie, that can be easily paired with skirts and trousers without adding bulk under tailored jackets.

Chinti and Parker’s comfortable black knit is made from single-source, sustainable cashmere, with coordinating sweatpants offering the most luxurious loungewear. Finally, Extreme Cashmere’s military green jumper is the ideal piece for throwing on for everything from weekend brunches to impromptu Zoom meetings.

The best crew-neck jumpers

A crew neck may be the most basic of jumper designs but that doesn’t mean it needs to be boring. Take, for example, Bella Freud’s cult design, which features the brand’s signature 1970 motif. Or Marni’s striped number, which takes a basic design to the next level with the help of a textured mohair fabric. The Elder Statesman, meanwhile, takes an alternative approach, elevating its classic crew-neck sweater via a vibrant tie-dye pattern, guaranteed to brighten up even the greyest of days. Elsewhere, The Row’s pared-back knit keeps things casual with an oversized fit in the softest of cashmere blends.

The best cable-knit jumpers

They don’t come much more classic than a cable knit and, accordingly, you’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re in the market for one this season. Woven from a cosy wool-cashmere blend, Max Mara’s caramel Odessa sweater is hugely versatile, while Ganni embellishes its neutral-hued version with scarf-style detailing.

If you’re already looking ahead to the festive season, Ami Paris’s neon-green cropped number sports the perfect hue for wrapping (or unwrapping) gifts. At the other end of the spectrum, Isabel Marant’s lilac sweater combines comfort and style in the ultimate party piece thanks to the addition of a cheeky cut-out.
