January Essential: Oversized Knit

As I said yesterday I'm not buying ANYTHING this month, but if I was going to invest in one item it would probably be an oversized knit jumper, the perfect treat to keep you warm, cosy and stylish for the rest of the winter, as well as hiding any excess Christmas pounds!

I did manage to bag one in the Boden sale before Christmas and am so so pleased with it - definitely ticks all the boxes, it's long, slouchy, super comfy and I really love the tight fitting sleeves when the rest of it is such a relaxed shape:

Jumper - Boden AW14
Jeans - Karen Millen SS14
Boots - Office AW12
Bag - Longchamps

The jumper is still available in the sale in the gold colour:

Textured Off Duty Jumper £89 to £53.40


At the luxe end of the scale is this similar oversized jumper in cashmere from Boden, which comes in black, navy and red:

Cashmere Off Duty Jumper £199


Another luxurious version in cream, and in the sale at Reiss:

Malin Oversized Roll Neck in Chalk £125 to £89


And a lovely chunky jumper in pale camel in the sale at Baukjen:

Neilston Roll Neck Jumper £129 to £103


Of course the shade I like isn't in the sale, this beautiful berry colour:


One of my favourites and an all round winner is this khaki green ribbed sweater from Topshop - size up for an oversized fit:

Grungy Lofty Ribbed Sweater £38


And outstanding value from H&M, a textured grey slouchy polo neck in the sale:

Knitted Polo Neck Jumper


Is anyone else hiding in big cosy jumpers this month?

  1. I'd love a navy one but sadly no spend January means it won't be happening and of course February is going to be glorious isn't it so I won't need one by then!!!! You picked up a cracker from Boden Abbi x
