The jumper that we all need in our Wardrobe

Honestly, you may not think that you need a pink jumper but you absolutely do. I promise. Even if you don’t like pink, you really do need a pink jumper. This is even more so if you don’t like sparkles, Christmas jumpers or Fair Isle ones – all of which are in abundance at this time of year.  They go so well with denim and all of those navy, black and grey pieces that we wear at this time of year.

I posted the above picture on Instagram a while ago and asked people if they had seen any fab pink jumpers this season.  And this is the response that came back…

The Oasis cable knit (£40) seemed particularly popular. If wearing it with a midi length embellished skirt of the party variety, just tuck some of the front of the jumper into the waistband in a nonchalant kind of way, so as to keep the proportions right. Equally this would look great with coated skinnies and wellies for those winter walks that we all avoid like the plague look forward to on a cold wintery day.

This Oasis pink turtleneck (£30) offers something slightly more lightweight for those layering occasions, or if a chunky style is just too heavy for what you’re wearing on the bottom half. The scalloped neckline  and hem make for a really pretty detail.

For something a little sport luxe, this Burford cashmere hoodie from Kitted in Cashmere (£139) is just lovely. Again it can be worn with a party style skirt for a high/low look, or  leather leggings, or luxe track pants. This jumper also comes in this amazing shade of pink, which is really “Wow” in the flesh.

This Burfood hoodie is a “one size fits all” jumper too – making it the perfect Christmas present.

If a slightly more subtle shade of pink is more of your thing, then there’s the HUSH Helen jumper (£69) which isn’t quite as full on as some of the more neon ones that I’ve suggested above. This is a great, easy style to wear too. Layer something underneath it, or over it, tuck it in, leave it out, lengthen it with a white shirt peeping out from the bottom, add a scarf if you prefer a higher neckline, jazz it up with sparkly jewellery – it’s just so versatile. 

I’ve noticed that chenille, that fabulous fabric with 80s and 90s connotations, seems to be having a revival. So for those who like the idea of some texture and would rather avoid anything with wool in it, there’s this hooded jumper in cerise chenille from H&M (£29.99)

And I love this Chunky knit jumper H&M (£19.99). It’s very insta worthy in a “wearing it with Mom type jeans and sky scraper heels” kind of way. Over sized, overly long sleeves with a great high neckline, it’s fabulous.

For an investment piece in something luxuriously soft, there’s the Mimi cashmere jumper from White Stuff (£89.95) which was also drawn to my attention. It’s such a vibrant shade of pink – love it!

And then I just had to go and do it didn’t I? I had to go and lower the tone by including a jumper that was not only pink but also sparkly and with a Christmas theme. As you can tell, this was all my own work! It’s the Topshop Christmas sequin penguin jumper (£36) and I fear that it might just have my name all over it.

Now do you believe me? You see, you totally need a pink jumper….don’t you?!
