& Other Stories has always had one of the strongest knitwear sections on the high street. From cult-status varsity jumpers to sought-after cable-knit cardigans, whatever woolly moment you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it here. However, one of my favorite finds is its Mock Neck Sweater, a straight-fit knit jumper with what the brand calls a “mock neck.” It’s a high neckline that isn’t bulky and that doesn’t roll over itself. The jumper itself is not oversized, nor is it fitted. It’s simply the ideal cut for layering over dresses and blouses or for tucking into the front of your jeans or a skirt. The off-shoulder seams loan to the overall relaxed feel, making it the ideal throw-on piece for days in the house as well as a handy layer for springtime walks.
It’s a best seller for the brand, and aside from the fact that it comes in just about every color you can think of, part of its undeniable charm is its price point. At £35, it’s incredibly affordable, particularly for & Other Stories, whose knitwear peaks at £120. It proved so popular & Other Stories has recently unveiled a slightly cropped mock-neck jumper, which is almost identical to the original, only it sits a fraction higher.
