M&S Just Created the Perfect Autumn Jumper—Here’s How We’re Wearing It

There’s nothing that makes us quite as excited as the discovery of an affordable item that could easily pass as designer. This week, this moment came in the form of a jumper courtesy of high street stalwart Marks and Spencer. Of course, good ‘ol M&S has always been prized for its cashmere offering, but when I saw this particular striking ombre number, I couldn’t help but yelp with excitement (it’s my job, okay?) 

Coming in a statement-making shade of red, but with a classic crew neck silhouette, there’s something about this jumper than just feels so premium. Perhaps it’s the fact that it’s impactful without being obviously ‘trend-led’, and the cashmere fabric makes it feel undeniably luxurious. I also think it’s the sort of style that will look good for many seasons to come. 

Both WWW editor Emma Spedding and I were desperate to try the jumper on IRL, and luckily we got that chance. I can confirm it looks even better in person. Just to prove its versatility we’ve styled the M&S knit a number of different ways, all perfect for the autumn season. Scroll down to see our outfits and shop the jumper. 

Style Notes: I recently bought this mini skirt from Vestiaire Collective and I’ve been so excited about experimenting with the styling. The burst of colour from the M&S knit makes for a perfect counter-balance to the black hue, and my Kurt Geiger chunky boots keep the whole thing from looking too corporate. 

Style Notes: Emma wears her jumper with a satin slip skirt from Vince and a pair of black knee-high boots from Arket. Brown, red and orange aren’t colours we’d usually pair together, but with the gradiant effect this blends together so well. 

Style Notes: I never used to be much of a colour lover, but I have to say that I’ve fully converted myself to the easy, mood-boosting appeal of a bright jumper. The ombre M&S knit adds instant personality to a classic pair of straight leg jeans and loafers.
