In my last post I mentioned how statement jumpers are, like, totally a thing this Autumn/Winter ’17 – and then I realised I’d unnecessarily followed my own advice and stocked on a ton of pretty awesome jumpers.
Then I thought I’d do something a little different than usual and even a little old-school, as this is very much inspired by one of my all-time favourite bloggers, Lily from Llmlrs. I basically wanted to showcase my new little stash of knits in a direct and uncomplicated manner – and what better way is there to do that than with a good old white background?
This also serves as a preview of things that I’ll hopefully be styling on the ‘gram as well as on here too…
THE RAINBOW JUMPER
There seems to be a lot of love going around for colourful stripes at the moment – and I couldn’t help but have my eyes on this beauty by a brand I’ve never bought into before, Daisy Street. I was unsure at first, as I thought it was too much even for me. Then I saw one of my favourite bloggers and ultimate style icon, Megan Ellaby, wear it and I died and realised it was too much of a good thing. It was out of stock on ASOS for what felt like forever and it finally became available again just a few days ago. I love how crazy it is and totally have an outfit ready to wear this week.
THE GRANNY JUMPER
Yep, it was only until I wore it out last week that I realised this jumper from H&M is one step too granny – but I couldn’t help myself! I love the frilled collar and frilled cuffs, they’re just so dramatic and pretty. I also love the baby blue colour – which admittedly is what makes even more granny-ish (I mean, imagine this jumper in red – bye bye granny vibes). As mentioned, I got this jumper right at the start of the month and wore it last weekend with this pleated skirt (you can see the outfit here) and even though I loved that look I do feel it was just a little too ‘old’ – so my mission is to style it up in a more ‘youthful’ vibe. God, I sound old.
Available at H&M.
THE EMBROIDERED JUMPER
So basically I like anything French because French = super chic, right? So when I spotted this jumper on Joanie Clothing I was like ”Oh my god, hell yes.” I looove the super cute Paris-inspired embroidery (how I wish I’d had this jumper when I went to Paris in September) and the bib cut makes it everything I could ever want in a jumper. The only thing I’m not that keen on is the orange trims, but that’s how much I love all the other detailing.

THE HEART CUT OUT JUMPER
I had this Warehouse jumper on my ASOS saved list for quite a few weeks – priced at £49, I felt it was a little too pricey. The moment the price was reduced I decided to go for it, as I don’t think I have anything like it in my wardrobe (and pink is still very much my colour, despite my newfound appreciation for all things red). Needless to say, I love it – it’s like all of my Barbie dreams came true. The cut out heart is so girlie and fun, and the shade of pink tops it. Again, I can’t wait to wear it this week.
THE MULTI PASTEL JUMPER
Lots of fashionistas have been sporting this pastel dream by Missguided lately, but I wasn’t 100% convinced. I then had a weak moment (and discount code) and decided to try it – and guess what, I love it. It’s extremely oversized and not that easy to style, but it’s cute and cosy AF and the pastel stripes have made me fall in love with pastels all over again – also, for some reason it got a positive reaction from the boyfriend?! I actually wore it today with my Noisy May denim skirt, which has become one of my ‘wear with everything’ pieces, although I’m planning to try it with a few other things too, just to convince myself that an oversized multi-coloured jumper can be versatile!
Firstly, apologies for the ridiculous hand pose – I don’t know how I managed to do it three times! Also, I thought taking a few pictures against a white wall would be the easiest thing ever – it turns out the light was terrible in my flat today and the wall is beige, not white! But overall I’m quite pleased with the results and might try it again…
So yes, I’ve fully embraced the statement jumper trend and can’t wait to style (and restyle) these pretty pieces – anything that helps me get through a chilly winter!
