Winter fashion means one thing for me, bring on the jumpers.
They’re such an amazing fashion piece, and the thicker or cosier, the better. I
feel like I have an endless supply of jumpers all over my house, from the
amazing oversized knits to the slightly-too-small/too-scared-to-throw-away
jumper. As I live in the North, I can basically wear jumpers in the summer, but
chillier days means I can bring out the big guns.
Sadly, I can’t wear 100% wool because it irritates my skin,
but this doesn’t stop me! I love the cosy and warm feeling a wool blend adds to
jumper, so it’s the one thing I look for. Over time, I’ve been running out of
ways to style jumpers, until I came across a look on Pinterest, and wanted to try it out
myself. It reminds me a little bit of the drop-waist trend, and I’m feeling it!
All I needed was a jumper (check), a skater skirt (check),
and over the knee boots…(check)! One thing I noticed, was that the jumper was
oversized and almost as long as the skirt, so I basically copied this look. It’s
something a little different for me, but I really like the unique look. I haven’t
worn a skater skirt since they were the huge Tumblr trend back in ’08. Still, I
hold onto little gems like this cotton number because it’s a timeless closet
essential, and I can pair it with most items in my closet.
Similarly, over-the-knee boots are a new must for me. I was never into them
before, until I got my fair pair and now I wear them everywhere. I adore these
boots because they have a smaller heel, so I can still wear them in a formal
setting without ending up with burning feet!
