I hate this winters clothes, why would anyone want a cold shoulder jumper? If I’m wearing a jumper I want to be warm & that includes my shoulders. Op, I’m sorry I can’t help but I’ll be watching this thread to get some tips!
Uniqlo. All are jumper-shaped with proper sleeves and necklines, in loads of different colours. Not very long though. I love long jumpers, but if you're happy for them to stop at the hipbone, try them.
Last year I got some gorgeous ones in Benetton too.
If you want cashmere, try M&S or Pure Clothing Agree, Uniqlo is great for Merino. Gap also has merino but only ever wash cold (I speak from experience) Jigsaw, Whistles and Hobbs all have some nice jumpers this season but as a higher price
Totally agree Tataniascloset Cold (cool) shoulders are fine in summer but are ridiculous at this time of year on a jumper! New Look are normally pretty good and noticed Next had some 'normal' ones when having a look around on Sunday
I was going to suggest Uniqlo too. I received my first order yesterday after lots of recommendations on here and am impressed.
Ky I would suggest you order a couple of sizes as it really depends on what fit you want, but maybe try L and XL? The sizing on the jumpers is small. I am a 10 with DD boobs and would wear a S in vanity sized Hush. I've kept Uniqlo jumpers in M and L. There isn't a huge difference between the sizes but I like my jumpers with a bit of slouch and the L is more flattering as slightly longer in length.
Ky I think the Uniqlo size charts are a good starting point - they give the actual garment size, so you can compare them either to your own measurements and work out whether you want something slouchier or more fitted, or compare the measurements to a sweater you already own and like the fit of. I'm quite tall so tend to order the men's merino sweaters, for the extra length.
Also, M&S men's lambswool jumpers are lovely, if you prefer a more muted colour palette.
I had to buy one in an emergency a few weeks ago- (holiday/didn't pack anything warm/it was 5.49pm and everywhere was closing) I got a men's one from Primark- it was £10 and a lovely bottle green colour. Really simple, crew neck solid knit but it is so soft and hangs nicely, I am going to get the other colours (navy and burgundy) too I am a size 18 and got a medium- I could have got a small as it is so soft and stretchy, but depends how tight/long you want.
