5 cosy sweaters because who CBA with this cold snap

As the song goes, Baby It's Cold Outside, and if you're anything like me, then you need to wrap up in approximately 1,245 layers to even be able to face the idea of going outside.

Luckily, chunky knits are in this season, and my favourite designers and high street stores have risen to the occasion with a selection of knitwear that isn't just cosy, but stylish enough to elevate even the plainest pair of jeans and ankle boots.

If you'd like to dress them up too, that's no problem. I've picked some styles that will also look great over a silk dress or pleated skirt, with a pair of knee high boots, another big trend this season.

And with knitwear, feel free to go a size up, that's a quick way to make it look even more expensive than it actually is. For extra sartorial points, get two jumpers, and drape one over your shoulders for a more unexpected style. Or buy one with an incorporated cape, a la Rejina Pyo.

I've also thrown in a couple of cardigans, because they are just having a major fashion moment, courtesy of Katie Holmes and that cashmere Khaite bra and cardi combo. Keep on scrolling to shop and don't forget to check out our Mytheresa discount codes whilst you're here.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
