I’m Convinced That Wearing This Jumper Will Make You Look Richer

The humble beige jumper is such an unassuming article of clothing, but that’s the key to its power. Yes, it’s just a jumper, and yes, it’s just a colour, but put them together and you’ve got yourself a garment that will make you look super polished.

I can’t give you a definite reason as to why, but there’s somethng about that gorgeous buttery tone that instantly makes any knitwear-based look feel more elevated. Beige knitwear also has such an expensive feel, especially when looked after correctly (read more on that here). And when it comes to styling such a piece, the world really is your oyster. Try wearing yours with blue or even white denim, wide-leg trousers, a floral midi dress or a silky slip skirt. There’s nothing it won’t go with… My favourite way, however, is to pair it with a texture that makes it really stand out. Faux-leather trousers would be my go-to way to style it. Add a gold necklace and it’s a polished, classic look achieved without spending too much money. (Then again, I’m also a sucker for the jeans-and-jumper combo with a chunky loafer.) 

Put another way? It’s the kind of item of clothing that the über-polished Olivia Pope would wear. (And you know she has a wardrobe full of beige and cream items, yet she has the skills to never spill a single drop of red wine.) However you wear it, it’s a guaranteed way to keep your look polished but minimal. To help you do this, I’ve hunted down 21 beige jumpers that you are guaranteed to love and wear forever. There are, of course, plenty of designer options, but then there are high-street versions that look just as expensive. Keep scrolling to see my edit.

Style Notes: You can never go wrong with a knit and jean look, as Marianne of Smyth Sisters proves. Note the patent Uggs and sleek black accessories, too.

An everyday staple.

Run don’t walk for a 100% wool jumper at this price. 

I swear this looks so premium IRL.

The collar detail adds to the stylish deisgn.

I’m obsessed with the sheer detail on this wool-mix knit. 

Pair with cream jeans or a satin slip skirt for a chic look.

Style Notes: Not sure what to wear? You can’t go wrong with a co-ord. Sylvie’s knitwear of choice could also be worn as separates; Pair the jumper with jeans and add a white shirt to the skirt. Done and done!

If you’re into pretty details, this version should be on your radar. 

Currently the most worn piece in my wardrobe. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. 

This is begging to be worn with a oversized coat and lug soled boots.

A cashmere knit under £100? I’ll take it.

Yep, this will go with pretty much my whole wardrobe.

Style Notes: Make like Rachel and wear your jumper of choice with cream denim for a simple yet stylish look that will easily take you from desk to dinner.

It’s the fringing detail for me.

It’s all about the zip knit this season, and all the Who What Wear Editors agree this COS style is just so good.

This knit comes with matching trousers for an easy look in seconds.

Made from 100% traceable wool, this jumper is an investment worth making.

I love the puff sleeves on this iteration.

Style Notes:  I love how Anouk has styled her beige knit with other wardrobe staples like relaxed-fit trousers and classic trainers.

This chunky knit is just dreamy.

This sweetheart neckline is having a moment.

The dreamiest knit I ever did see.

There’s always room for a logo knit in my wardrobe.

This one is going straight on my wish list.
