The Wardrobe Edit
Jump up, jump up and get down..
My gorgeous friend Jen will approve of the House of Pain reference.. Great song and a (very) tenuous link to a post about jumpers.
I've been looking for jumpers lately for a few clients to pair with skirts and under blazers (I love how a fine knit jumper looks for work / going out with a blazer) and so thought I'd share some of the best finds here.
The first is from Primark at a bargain price of £6.00. This isn't the jumper I bought, but is similar and the colour will make it really versatile. Obviously you need to go in store as they don't have an online option (at the moment?) but worth a look.
Phase Eight currently have their sale on and it's got some great options, especially if you're lucky enough to have curves. Their Calanthe jumper is now £39.00 (was £59.00) and the pics don't really do it justice, this looks amazing on.
Another option from Phase Eight is their Donisha shoulder detail knit, now £59.00 (was £79.00). Great with jeans and heels / sock boots for a casual night out.
Over at Zara (because lets face it, I live in Zara clothes!) is this amazing sweatshirt with pearls, £39.99. Available in grey, white and black.
Oooh but look, an oversized cable-knit sweater in red, £39.99.. Gorgeous! If you're tall like me then these are so easy to throw on over jeans, leather skirts, trousers and are ridiculously warm.
Another oversized option, I have very similar and am living it in at the moment. Zara's oversized roll neck sweater is £39.99.
I'm stepping away from the oversized jumpers now (although honestly I could just write a whole blog about them..) and moving on to this sweater with a removable bejewelled collar, £29.99 which looks amazing under a blazer or jacket and is available in grey or black.
The next jumper I'm almost reluctant to share as then you'll all know about it! It's a pearly sweatshirt from Stradivarius and is just £19.99. This is a brand that always has fantastic pieces that are so reasonable it's a real jewel for finding something different.
Sticking with embellishments, Mint Velvet have a stud sleeve batwing jumper now in their mid-season sale, £55.00 (was £79). Lets just repeat, studs and batwing - it's my 80's dream come true. I had one batwing jumper in the 80's that was a hand-me-down (it was black with neon pink patches) and I can assure you I thought I was as cool as Keren from Bananarama in it (I totally was and yes, that is how she spells her name - I am a superfan).
This is the champagne version but they also have it in charcoal (stunning), khaki, bordeaux and petal.
Not in the sale but also from Mint Velvet is this curved hem stud knit in khaki, £79.00.
Over at H&M this flounce sleeve sweatshirt, £19.99, is heaven on a stick (well I think so!). Also available in blue..
This fine knit jumper from H&M, £17.99 works well for so many different bodyshapes, available in grey, beige, dark green and blue.
Keeping it fine and delicate this lace neck jumper from M&S is now £17.00 (was £29.50) in their sale.
Ooh now I like this blush cuff detail jumper from M&S in their petite collection (so completely useless for me), it's now £17.00 (was £29.50). But it's only available in a size 18.
Now we're going to have to go back to Zara because I've just realised I haven't shared this with you! It's their sweater with contrast fabric cuffs, £49.99. Not loving the outfit they've paired it with (sorry Zara) but this is a comfort jumper at it's best.
Finally finishing up with my own comfort jumper, this is from Zara (I know, but I did mention earlier I go there a lot!) and is quite frankly bloody amazing on.
