These Vintage Jumpers Prove Why Buying New is SO Last Season

One of a kind.

Last Updated on November 7, 2022

Love vintage fashion? Same – so I’ve done some searching for the best vintage jumpers available now.

When you’re looking for new knits for winter, perhaps the first places you look are the fast fashion brands that are our first port of call most of the time.

I know, because I spend a huge amount of time scrolling through said brand’s websites on the hunt for the newest, most on-trend and wearable pieces out there. But what if those pieces already exist?

I’ve got news for you: they do. You don’t have to buy brand, spanking new all the time, because most of the time the current trends you love are just iterations of those from previous eras.

The fashion from the past influences nearly all trends today — the 90’s mom jeans, silk scarves of the 50s, and chunky sneakers of the 80s, to name a few.

As you know, autumn winter is all about knitwear and this rarely changes. Chunky knits, roll neck sweaters and floral jumpers are pretty timeless, so if you’re looking to start shopping pre-loved, jumpers are a great place to start.

You don’t have to spend hours scouring racks of clothing either, because these days there’s plenty of vintage clothing to be found online.

Vintage superstores Beyond Retro and Rokit now have full-to-the-brim online shops, while there are many vintage sellers that trade exclusively online now too. Etsy is a treasure trove for vintage.

So without further ado, here are a few of our favourite vintage jumpers to embrace during this sweater weather.
