It takes a lot for a jumper to please me. Frankly, jumpers usually just annoy me. You know when you walk out the house into the biting cold and you’re ever so thankful you put on that winter jumper, but then you get inside again and you’re sweltering? Or when you buy a jumper in the hope that it’ll be super soft to wear, and then you sadly find out after the first wear that it actually just really bladdy itches? Or when a baggy jumper makes you look 15 sizes bigger than you actually are? It frustrates me no end. Not exactly the end of the world, I know, but I thought I’d compile together a few of me favourite jumpers I’ve picked up over the years, with some ideas on how to style them for this Winter’s trends. Not interested in the post? Just look at the hilarious pictures of me attempting to pose. It’ll give you a lil chuckle.
The Jumper-Dungarees Combo
This look is perfectly on trend with the leopard-print jumper and adds a bit of an edge to an otherwise cutesy outfit with the dungarees. I bet most of you already own some of these Topshop dungarees anyway, what with last Autumn they being a mahoosive trend in their own right, with everyone popping into their local Topshop to grab this festive corduroy number. Dress it down with flats or go for a more finished look with these heeled boots from River Island. Laaavely.
The Classic Jumper Dress
I love the versatility with this trend, because if you invest in a jumper that’s dress-length, you can also pair it with jeans for a chilled-out look. For someone as tiny as me, I team the jumper with the heeled boots, in order to give me some height, because of that I am lacking. Terribly.
You also got the CHEAPER jumper dress (hurrah)
This is brill this one. I picked this beauty up from Primark for around the £10 mark – a lot more bank balance-friendly than the £50 Topshop version. This is a lot cosier to wear as well, and you know by now that I ain’t no fan of those itchy jumpers.
