I adore jumpers! Come the autumnal drop in temperatures, I practically live in what I call snuggle jumpers. Big, comfy, cosy jumpers that feel like a hug to wear.
A jumpers are perfect for layering over jeans or dresses. For chilling at home with a good book (matching woolly socks optional) or heading out to jump in puddles and stomp through crisp fallen leaves.
I have quite a full winter woolly wardrobe with six jumpers taking pride of place in my current capsule wardrobe. The majority of these have been worn for several years. From my lounge-about-the-house hugely oversized & Other Stories jumper to my perfect-for-layering slim fitted cashmere polo neck.
Sadly, a few of my jumpers are coming to the end of their life. They’ve had a good run, but this winter is really the last one that they’ll survive. I’m also not sure if they will fit over my baby bump as it grows or bounce back afterwards. Which means only one thing – new snuggle jumpers!
The wear-with-everything jumper edit
When looking to buy new pieces, I take time to really consider what I wear regularly and how that will fit with my current wardrobe. Last autumn winter, the jumper that I wore most was a camel turtle neck with a dip hem. The neutral tones means the jumper goes with EVERYTHING in my wardrobe. I wear it so often that I have even found myself dragging it out of the wash bag and giving it a good sniff to see if it could be worn again. I know, I’m a bit skanky sometimes!
The sheer amount I wore this jumper shows a real need for another neutral toned jumper in my wardrobe so I set about researching for a new neutral woolly to accompany it.
My colour palette was simple – beige, camel, and white with perhaps a flash of muted yellow. And yes, leopard print counts as a neutral – it does go with everything after all!
Shop my Look
The jumper I’ve decided to keep is one of the more simple from my edit, a white fluffy, off shoulder jumper from ASOS Design. It’s made from a recycled polyester blend constructed from old plastic bottles and textile waste. A jumper with a little bit of a feel good factor? I’m definitely in.
I’m wearing the jumper layered over a slim-fitted turtleneck dress but it would look equally as good with jeans or midi-skirts. It also has a slightly boxy shape to it which I like for a more relaxed look. The jumper is just £25 and definitely worth the money as it holds it shape well and, despite being of a fluffy texture, it does not shed fibres.
Don’t forget to follow my instagram to see all the different ways I wear this jumper over autumn and winter. And let me know in the comments if you’ll be investing in a new jumper this season?
