The 10 Best children's jumpers

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Keep your little ones warm and snuggly with these fashionable winter warmers. But will they want to take them off?

1. Boden

Boden's fun and quirky owl-themed jumper is made from 100 per cent cotton that doesn't seem to shrink or bobble, no matter how many times it's washed, meaning that it will also make a great hand-me-down. It's also available in other designs, featuring hearts or spots.

From £30,

2. Mamas & Papas

This limited edition, chunky knitted jacquard cardi features zig zag intarsia knit, button fastening and a shawl collar. You can co-ordinate it with mini brogues if you want to turn your child into a trendsetter.


3. Next

This can be worn as a long jumper on taller girls or as a jumper dress on shorter ones. Either way, it's cosy and comfortable and they'll love the sparkly detailing. Fear not if you don't like this design – there are plenty of others, including a delightful beige one with a bunny.

From £16,

4. Jasper Conran

No need to splash out on a shirt with this stylish sweater by Jasper Conran, which features a mock one at the hem and collar. The horizontal black-and-white strips on the jumper itself suit pretty much all ages and skin tones, making this a good Christmas present.

From £15,

5. Laura Ashley

No wonder this cardi is so comfortable – it's got cashmere in it. Yet it's great value, with a fiver off its original price of £20. The eye-catching stripes and multi-coloured buttons are cheery and it has a front patch pocket and neatly ribbed neck cuffs and hem.


6. Jo Jo Maman Bebe

Who can resist a Christmas jumper? This one, with a snowman motif, is so charming that kids will probably want to wear it most days. It is supersoft, so you'll get no complaints of itchiness. It washes really well, too.


7. Mothercare

This blue and sand stripe fleece, with red detailing, is an absolute bargain, especially while it's part of the two for £12 promotion. It has a zip neck and it's available from three months up to three years.


8. Fat Face

This Fair Isle patterned jumper, which comes in a flecked yarn with a crew neck and mini pockets, is great for girls of all ages. Older ones will like teaming it up with jeans, while younger ones will love bunging it on top of whatever they're wearing.


9. Lands' End

Here's a no-nonsense, comfortable cotton jumper that works for all ages and comes in a wide variety of colours. It's mid-weight, which means it will do for all seasons and the chunky ribbed trim stays in shape, even after lots of washes.


10. Marks & Spencer

Made from pure cotton, the rollneck jumper also boasts StayNEW™, which does exactly what it says on the tin. Available from 12 months to seven years, the only downside is that it doesn't come in other colours.

From £8,
