The Cashmere Ribbed Jumper


The ribbed jumper is the perfect textured knit! Instantly cosier, and somewhat more sumptuous-looking, the ribbed knit packs a powerful punch when displaying a warm and generous, seasonal layer.

Oversized, cropped, boxy and roll neck, paired with leather, prints, pencil skirts and denim; this season the ribbed jumper has been plastered up and down the runways, and on the backs of influential fashion bloggers and designers in beautifully creative variations.

Cropped jumpers, whether box-like in shape or fitted, are great for exhibiting a more feminine look and feel. Exposing the waistline, or sometimes, just glimpsing it, the cropped ribbed jumper enables you to play with a prettier silhouette and maintain a cosy edge.

As well as being a huge AW15 trend, winter whites are top notch for showcasing a distinctively snug appeal. Married with rib knitting, get ready to become the walking, talking embodiment of toasty autumn/winter style.

A perfect combination of the classic ribbed jumper, and a cropped version, our unapologetically cosy, brilliantly boxy cashmere jumper is an ideal fit for jeans, tailored trousers and culottes, however, its shorter hem means that you can quite easily layer over dresses and pair with all skirts. A toasty transitional knit for years to come.

The evolution of the ribbed jumper has resulted in some brilliant transformations; from the traditional and classic, to the innovative and strange. They all stand as a testament to the pull of the ribbed texture.

Look out for our new cashmere gauzy jumper, which has ribbed sleeves and a plaited, cable-like design to the back. Something simple, yet in good supply, warm and stylish knits are what we do best!
