While putting away summer’s strappy tops, worn-in Birkenstocks and ripped denim can be a sad, nostalgic experience, there’s still one reason why we without fail look forward to the return of autumn’s chill: the humble jumper. There’s something endlessly comforting about climbing back inside a cosy, warm knit – it can signal lazy evenings spent reading by a fire, hot chocolate and an ease of dressing that comes with the return of such a versatile wardrobe essential. We’ve curated our top picks of this season’s knitwear, from high end favourites like Acne's yellow wool pullover to high street saviours like Arket classics to layer and love, they'll help you build a colourful and practical autumnal wardrobe that you're sure to come back to next year too.
