Jumpers are one of the most adaptable items we have in our wardrobes and they can be paired with almost anything, whether you’re smartening up a cable knit for work or teaming an oversized jumper with your favourite Timberland boots.
There are hundreds of jumper types available on the market today, from roll-necks and cable knit to sweater style and oversized. With such a broad range of styles to choose from, there’s something to suit everyone and you’ll often be able to find a few different styles that flatter your body type.
Jumpers for women
When it comes to jumpers for women, there are often a few different styles stuffed in the drawer waiting to be taken out again, whether that be jumper dresses ideal for work or cosy sweaters perfect for mooching around the house.
How to wear a women’s jumper
Once you’ve dug out the jumper you want to wear, it can be hard to know what to pair it with. Thankfully, jumpers are so versatile that you can really make an outfit out of anything.
Teaming your jumper with a pair of jeans is a great option for a casual and relaxed weekend look and you can make it work with almost any jumper style, whether you’re opting for a slim-fitting fisherman’s knit or a baggy cardigan. The best part about the casual look is being able to finish your outfit with a comfortable pair of Timberland women’s sneakers.
If you’re putting together an outfit for an evening occasion, baggy and roll-neck jumpers can work well when tucked into skirts or layered with dresses in the colder months.
Accessorizing and styling a jumper
The great thing about jumpers is that once you’ve found a few styles to work with, you can adapt and accessorize them to suit any outfit or occasion.
With oversized or baggy jumpers, a belt can work wonders around the waist. By adding structure and a flattering shape to your frame, this simple hack can take you from frumpy to fabulous in seconds. Team your look with a pair of wet-look leggings and your favourite Timberland women’s boots for a weekend catching up with friends.
You should never underestimate jewellery when it comes to styling your jumper; a statement necklace can instantly transform a roll-neck and the right pair of earrings can really make your outfit pop.
If you're going for a casual look, trainers are the perfect option. See 12 more outfits to wear with our Adventure trainers.
Jumpers for men
Jumpers for men are a little more straightforward and pairing them with other items of clothing tends to be easier too. Men typically have less choice when it comes to jumper styles available, but the beauty of this is that a simple jumper can be worn to a number of different occasions and look different each time.
How to wear a men’s jumper
For men, most jumper styles will work well with a pair of jeans; whether you’re partnering our Manhan River Cable Sweater with skinny jeans for a laid-back vibe or coupling a smart jumper with your favourite black jeans.
The versatile nature of jumpers also means footwear need not be an issue. Oversized jumpers are the perfect partner for casual sneakers and when the weather hits Spring, Timberland Men’s Boat Shoes look great teamed with a cardigan or our Williams River Cotton Sweater.
When it comes to adaptability, men’s jumpers have got it covered. A sleek and simple jumper can be worn for many occasions, from untucked for work casual to layered over a smart shirt for an important meeting. A reliable jumper can even take you from all day in the office to relaxed drinks with friends by swapping suit trousers for a pair of jeans and your Timberland Original 6-Inch Boots.
From footwear and accessories to jeans and jackets, there are several different items you can wear a jumper; whether you’re dressing up for a special occasion or keeping it casual.
