Jumpers are the ultimate transitional garment. As the seasons change, so do the temperatures and the need for different types of clothing.
They are the perfect item to bridge the gap between seasons and can be worn in a variety of ways, whether it’s spring or winter. Although, I agree it can be weird to see someone wearing a knit cable jumper in the middle of summer.
So, it’s all about choosing the right one, so you won’t look like a fish out of the water wearing a holiday jumper with cheesy embroidery after January. Like most fashion trends, what’s chic now may be cringy tomorrow.
Jumpers are a fall staple, but are they still stylish in 2023? Or should we trade our favourite knitwear for something like a cardigan or a coat?

Are jumpers in style?
Yes, there’s no reason jumpers have to go out of style.
Spring presents an excellent opportunity to have fun with jumpers. With warmer weather and less snow, you can wear lightweight separates, show off bare legs, and experiment with playful accessories.
Plus seasons can often be unpredictable, with sudden drops in temperature and showers, so it’s always a good idea to have at least one lightweight layer that can be removed or added to your outfit.
Jumpers pair really well with either a skirt or jeans, making them a great choice for a casual spring outfit. You can express your personal style by adding unique accessories such as a statement belt or quirky purse.
Cargo pants are also trendy this season thanks to the resurgence of Y2K, so try pairing them with a cropped jumper to highlight your waist. Choose cargo pants in a light pastel colour for a refreshing twist.
What’s trending in 2023?
As the popularity of Y2K fashion continues to grow, this summer is witnessing a surge in utility-inspired design. Anticipate an abundance of dirty denim, enormous pockets, buckles in abundance, and an overarching cargo theme. The trend of low-waist everything is also gaining traction.
During SS23, the catwalks were draped in sheer fabrics that resembled underwear as an outerwear trend but were so prevalent that the trend is still going strong this year. So, expect a lot of lingerie-inspired designs this year, from high-end to high street.
