Out of Thousands of High-Street Jumpers, These Are the 24 Most Expensive-Looking

Now that we're in the depths of winter, there's no denying that good knitwear is essential. We're not here for being inadequately dressed—we'd much rather throw on a cosy jumper over our wares instead of finding ourselves at risk of frostbite. And with so many brilliant woolly options out there, it's never been easier to elevate your look with knitwear.

Now, we're accustomed to designer jumpers being granted It-buy status (a prime example being any and every Ganni knit), but what if we were to tell you the high street has made great sweaters of its own? We're talking directional knitwear from COS, the M&S cashmere that always impresses our editors and countless turtlenecks that are now taking centre stage.

Luckily, we've narrowed down from the thousands out there to an editor-approved bounty of 24 jumpers that you can buy now and wear year after year.
