 | By  |  Add comment

As the weather gets colder we're yearning for some wool, here are the films that show us how it's done

Knitwear has a timeless quality which is why is appears in modern and period films alike, and why we want to wear all of it.

Who doesn't like something cosy and wooly when it gets cold?

Knitwear in The Edge Of Love

Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley battle it out for the best jumpers in this forties biopic about Dylan Thomas. Set on the coast of rural Wales it has a distinctly country feel - knee high socks and felt hats make it feel rather modern.

Knitwear in Love Story

Ali McGraw in the 1970s classic Love Story gives us a master class in killer jumper and coat combos. She rocks a variation on the camel coat throughout - how very on trend.

Knitwear in Harry Potter

An unlikely source for style inspiration, Harry Potter does have its fair share of cracking knits. Especially those extra wintry Fair Isle patterns and Emma Watson's beanies.

Knitwear in Atonement

Any fans of tweed must just gush over those fantasy scenes in Atonement. This film gives a perfect glimpse of war time aristocracy style. Simple and classic.

Knitwear in Bridget Jones

Nothing says Christmas like a movie and a novelty jumper. So for that, look no further than Bridget Jones's Diary. Just maybe try avoiding them when meeting a new man...
