Marks and Spencer have launched a new selection of cosy knitwear to see you through autumn and beyond. Whether you prefer neutrals or something bold, there are plenty of options to suit your style.
The Pure Cashmere Crew Neck Jumper, PS85 here, is an excellent choice. It has a classic crew neckline and ribbed trims. It is made to a regular fit and has stylish tortoiseshell buttons on the front placket.
A crew neck is a style of sweater or T-shirt that has a close-fitting round neckline. It can be worn alone or layered with other tops. It is not to be confused with a V neck, which has a v-shaped neckline. The differences between these two necklines are subtle, but it is important to know the difference.
A crew neck can be worn for a casual look with jeans or a skirt. It can also be layered over a shirt for a more formal outfit. It is also a great choice for winter weather, as it can be worn with a suit jacket or blazer.
The crew neck was first introduced in the Navy as an undershirt in 1913. It was later adopted by stevedores and miners, who needed a light and breathable undershirt for their jobs. In 1938, Sears began selling crew necks undershirts for 24 cents. They were called “gob” shirts, because the Navy sailors would often dye them brown with coffee grounds for camouflage purposes.
As the chill sets in, it’s time to stock up on cosy knitwear that will see you through the rest of autumn and into winter. Luckily, our trusty high street stocks plenty of contemporary but cosy styles to suit all budgets.
