Read on to discover the best cotton jumpers to buy this season.
Are cotton jumpers any good?
A cotton jumper is a great investment piece when it comes to affordable and comfortable women’s clothing. A favourite of ours for plenty of reasons, it’s a no-brainer to add one or two to your closet this season. In terms of the finer details, we particularly love them for their great versatility, soft, comfortable feel, and easy wash-and-wear properties.
In-between seasons? Cotton jumpers act as a handy extra layer when the weather has a mind of its own. Remember, the lighter the jumper, the less it will retain heat. Always opt for a cotton jumper that is brushed or raised on the inside for cooler days as this will keep the heat in. Cotton jumpers with a finer texture work better for warmer days in the spring/summer months.
Crew Neck Cotton Jumper
Popular for a reason, the classic crew neck jumper can be found in just about every woman’s wardrobe. A serious closet staple, this trusted and comfortable style of cotton jumper is a winner for its practicality and all-around wearability. With a flattering crewed neck and easy-wear shape, this style of jumper suits women of all shapes and sizes.
Crew neck jumpers are also a great one for layering as the higher neckline allows for a tee or tank to sit nicely underneath without peeking through the top. We love the Off Duty Crew for days on the go. Its relaxed fit, raglan sleeve detail and curved hem give it the perfect laid-back but luxe feel.
V-Neck Cotton Jumper
A similar style to crew-necks, V-neck jumpers sport a deeper neckline in the shape of a “V”. A great style for bustier women, the wider neck works to fit and flatter the bust rather than completely cover it. V-neck cotton jumpers are also a perfect style for women who love to show off their decolletage or prefer a little more room around the neck area. Try reaching for a V-neck jumper with some subtle ribbing to add some depth to your look whilst keeping it simple yet stylish.
Hooded Cotton Jumper
On days where the need to feel warm and cosy is heightened, a hooded jumper is the option for you! Perfect for walking the dog, snuggling into the couch, or doing the school drop off run, this comfortable and cosy style of women’s jumper has you covered! Whether teamed with lounge pants or styled with your favourite denim, a hooded cotton jumper will be your well-worn loungewear staple.
Opting for a hooded cotton jumper with a thicker interior, such as a brushed or raised style, will work best for retaining that precious heat. We love the Darby Hoodie for keeping you extra cosy on cold days. Hooded jumpers with kangaroo pockets are also a fabulous style for beating the chill, just throw your hands in for instant warmth!
Knitted Cotton Jumper
No modern wardrobe is complete without a knitted cotton jumper. Guaranteed to go the distance, this classic staple piece can be pulled out for years to come. With quality and style at the forefront, knitted cotton jumpers are a fabulous option for chic, cool weather looks. Unsure how to style your knit? We love French tucking a knitted cotton jumper like the Bayadere Sweater into jeans. Simple yet sophisticated, this easy outfit will be your best friend for busy days on the go.
¾ sleeve Cotton Jumper
On days when you’re neither hot nor cold, a ¾ sleeve cotton jumper is the piece for you. Providing a lighter coverage, the convenient cropped sleeve length offers optimal versatility when moving between climates. The ultimate travel staple, this easy-wear jumper is perfect for throwing on over a tank, teaming with a skirt or slipping on or off on long drives and plane rides. Try reaching for a style, like the Alice Spot Crew, with a comfortable, relaxed fit and handy front pockets.

Printed Cotton Jumper
For days that require an extra touch of style, why not reach for a printed cotton jumper to be the hero of your look? Experimenting with different prints can be a great way to have fun with fashion and discover one that you love. Printed cotton jumpers with stars, stripes or spots are a great place to start. For something a little more daring, cotton jumpers with prints like leopard, floral, or abstract motifs are an exciting way to inject some style into your fashion repertoire.
Striped Cotton Jumper
A cult classic for a reason, the timeless striped cotton jumper is a must-have item in every woman’s wardrobe. Fabulous for its sheer versatility and chicness, this well-loved staple is one to wear on repeat for years to come. Whether layered, worn on its own, teamed with denim, knotted over your shoulders, or tied around the waist, a striped cotton jumper is a necessary addition to a woman’s casual closet.
Cowl Neck Cotton Jumper
Designed to keep your neck cosy and warm, the cowl neck cotton jumper is a fabulous style for wintery days. Adding an elegant touch to your cool-weather wardrobe, this chic style of women’s jumper easily pairs back with your favourite denim or dress pants, making it a handy go-to for days at the office, brunches, weekends away and more.
Try reaching for a cowl neck cotton jumper with a curved hem rather than a fitted ribbed hem, the straight falling silhouette will look most flattering in contrast to the high neck. Curved hems are also much easier to style with a skirt or French tuck into your jeans or dress pants. Simply throw one on with a plain tank and jeans for a snug outfit that is equal parts comfortable and chic.
