I’m not saying summer is over yet – but I am saying that I spent the last weekend wearing jumpers for the first time in what feels like about six months! So, what better than to share my top ten reproduction vintage jumpers, as we reel from the summer sales and think about getting cosy and ready for September to come round?
1. Miss Fortune: Bobbie ‘Space Age’ Jumper
Blast off into autumn with your own piece of retro spacey cuteness – head to Miss Fortune’s website
2. Lindy Bop: ‘Menise’ Black Stripe Cardigan
I am obsessed with stripes. OBSESSED. Get yours here.
3. Mak: Jennie Cardigan
Price: €34.95 (Top Vintage are based overseas, but are currently customs free for UK buyers)
Top Vintage currently stocks these gorgeous 50s-style cardis in a range of different colours, including this dreamy green Jennie. Check out the range from Top Vintage.
4. Collectif: Rose Brocade Jumper
(How many Collectif jumpers is too many jumpers? Asking for a friend.) I missed out on this green rose brocade jumper last year, so I am over the moon they’ve brought it back for AW18. Shop yours now.
5. Heart of Haute: Betty Bolero
Price: €44.95 (Top Vintage are based overseas, but are currently customs free for UK buyers)
Boleros are perfect as the nights get cooler, but you don’t want anything too heavy. I am ample chested and often find that boleros end up getting stuck in my armpits, so a massive HELL YES to this genius tie-front option. This is currently only available in XS from Top Vintage, but I am praying they restock my size soon.
6. Monki: Fine knit cotton top
I recently discovered Monki, and I can’t get enough of them. Their sizing is generous, in tops at least, and I love finding little pieces like this that give me serious 40s/50s vibes. You can buy Monki items online here.
7. Voodoo Vixen: Cora ‘Panther’ Cardigan
I love my fashion to be playful and quirky, and this cardigan ticks both of those boxes! Slightly sock-puppet-esque, this is honestly one of the best novelty jumpers I’ve seen this year. Snap up this purrfect cardi here.
8. Banned: Hudson Bolero
This lovely soft bolero comes in such a range of colours, including mint and baby yellow, but I still love a good black wardrobe staple. It also comes in a huge variety of sizes too! Banned Apparel is available from Top Vintage, and you can shop the range of colours here.
9. Voodoo Vixen: Julia Cardigan
I love the range of 40s knitwear I’ve seen coming out this year, and as a cheaper alternative to some of the other brands out there, this Julia jumper is just the ticket. If red isn’t your colour, there’s also a bright mustard version. Both are available from Voodoo Vixen’s website.
10. Hell Bunny: Vamp Jumper
Not that I’m getting excited for Hallowe’en or anything, but I am batsh*t crazy for this! Wing your way over to Hell Bunny’s new (and very fancy) website to get your hands on one of these amazing jumpers.
