4 jumpers every wardrobe needs by Laura Jackson

The theory goes that the more choice you have, the harder it is to decide. So let us strip it back for you: here are the 4 jumpers you’ll wear this winter, and every winter after, as picked by Laura Jackson, TV presenter, cook and self-confessed knitwear aficionado. “I love a jumper, I have so many,” she says. “When people ask, ‘Are you a shoe girl or a bag girl?’, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m a real jumper girl’”. Without further ado, these are her forever knits and they tick all the boxes: wearable, versatile, timeless, and, of course, stylish.

The Fine Knit

The look/ Lightweight, finely woven and perfect for layering. For a subtle statement, “pick something with a glitter thread running through it or a pattern,” says Jackson

Team with/ “A fine knit looks nice tucked into a pencil skirt, or paired with trousers or smarter jeans”

The Mannish Knit

The look/ Oversized and fuss-free. Insider tip: “I go a size up, as I don’t want it too fitted. Or I’d actually raid the men’s department and get a small”

Team with/ Skinny jeans are the obvious choice, but for a more directional (and surprisingly wearable) look, “go for slouchy jeans and heels”

“When people ask, ‘Are you a shoe girl or a bag girl?’, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m a real jumper girl’”

The Discreet Knit

The look/ Shades of grey, navy and black. “I do love my neutrals,” says Jackson, whose wardrobe is filled with these goes-with-everything staples

Team with/ “I sometimes put a jazzy shirt on underneath, so you have the little collar showing or sleeves peeping out of the cuffs”

The Wow Knit

The look/ Eye-poppingly bright or printed. “I’ve got an amazing pink jumper. You know Paris, Texas [1984 film starring Nastassja Kinski], when she’s in the booth with the blonde hair? It’s that colour”

Team with/ The urge is to tone it down with black, but try teaming it with a complementary hue – bubblegum pink with nude pink, canary yellow with inky navy, cobalt with grey
