  • Mirla Beane Avery roll neck jumper

    Dopamine dressing has never been easier with Mirla Beane’s Avery roll-neck jumper. Made in Italy from a super-soft recycled cashmere and wool mix, the sustainable brand’s knit looks just as good with a pair of slouchy jeans and trainers as it does under a blazer for the office. We love the collegiate-style stripes on the arms, as well as the one cleverly positioned on the roll-neck. The only question is: lilac or cobalt blue?

  • Iggy & Burt Dangerous Creature blue cashmere jumper

    If this cashmere and merino mix jumper is ringing some bells, you may recognise the pink version from US Democratic senator Kyrsten Sinema’s senate floor appearance in February 2021 after which it, of course, went viral.

    Now available in blue, it’s ideal for chilly weather. And of course, it’s a conversation starter for those days when you fancy making a subtle feminist statement – if you’re anything like Stylist, that’ll be every day then…
