Workin’ up a sweater: how to dress like these on-screen knitwear icons

Tis the season to be snuggly, fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, so we’ve rounded up our favourite knitwear and jumper icons from TV and film. In fact, we are so obsessed with these wonderful woollens that we’ve even been shopping to find out how you can get the look IRL. Prepare for cosiness.

Cameron Diaz as Amanda Woods in The Holiday

Ignoring the fact that it hasn’t snowed as much in Surrey for the last 10 years combined as it does in this film, Cameron Diaz’s Christmas hibernation wardrobe is on point. She is hygge incarnate. Plus a classic cream cable-knit jumper is going to be your winter friend for long after the Quality Street are finished. 

Cable Knit Sweater, Pull & Bear, £19.99

 

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Sure, Audrey Hepburn’s floor length black dress and pearls combo gets all the attention, but all of her outfits in Breakfast at Tiffany’s are AH-mazing. We love this funnel neck jumper from Toppers, perfect for channelling Holly’s homebody phase.

Cocoon Jumper, Topshop, £36

 

Emma Watson as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter

Our girl Herm gives strong jumper game in pretty much all the HP films (you can’t defeat the Dark Lord if your kidneys are cold), but this stripy Gap number from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was especially memorable. Nine years on the original is obviously sold out, but this star-studded version is so perfect it’s almost like we magicked it. Accio jumper!

Star-sleeve striped sweater, £29.95, Gap

 

Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker in Bonnie and Clyde

Look, we may not have actually seen this film… we’re pretty sure it’s something to do with guns and crime and was based on a true story and Beyonce once sang about it, beyond that we’re a little hazy. But what we do know for sure is that Faye Dunaway’s Bonnie rocked an adorable cropped ribbed jumper, an awesome neckerchief and a banging beret like nobody else. This copycat number from Missguided will see you right through to spring.

Grey ribber jumper, Missguided, £18

 

Alicia Silverstone as Cher Horowitz in Clueless

Cher’s wardrobe is the stuff of dreams, literally. The matching tartan, the knee-high socks, the velvet dresses. But we don’t know anyone who can rock a sweater vest like Cher (except, of course, Chandler).

Vest, Vintage Revival, £23.99

 

Velma in Scooby Doo

She solves crimes and she looks dope doin’ it. Unlike real-life characters who have to change clothes because of, well, sweat and spilling yoghurt on themselves, Velma is eternally wearing her orange polo neck. And if she had to choose one thing to wear for the rest of her animated life, frankly we can see why she went with this.

Poloneck, Warehouse, £45

 

Colin Firth as Mark Darcy in Bridget Jones’ Diary

Oh Mr. Darcy, does anyone work a Christmas jumper quite as well as you? Forever 21 are selling a sequinned take on the iconic reindeer jumper that captured all of our hearts, and you don’t have to wait until the turkey curry buffet to wear it.

Reindeer jumper, Forever 21, £20
