The Essential Cosy Jumper: 3 Ways

3 Nov

Topshop duster coatOne of my key pieces this Autumn/Winter, is my cosy, ridiculously warm, beige wooly jumper. I’ve styled it in three different ways in this post to show how it can be worn in alternative combos!

River Island Hat

Topshop Duster CoatTo add a little detail to this outfit, I wore my black slip style dress underneath, which reveals a little bit of its lace trim just under the jumper. I also wore my (matrix style) black duster coat, added a hat for a splash of colour and finished with black, open toe Zara heels, which I must say are the comfiest heels I have ever worn! I can literally wear them for hours on a night out, dancing away, with no pain! They’re a heel dream.

The duster coat comes with detachable black/emerald faux fur around the neck, which I will be adding on as we move into winter!

Outfit minus the jacket

The material and the roll neck style of the jumper keeps me so warm, it is exactly what I need being up north!

DSC_0748Metallic is still around this season, so here I’ve put the jumper with metallic shorts and black ankle boots. You can always add black tights if it getting too cold for a bare leg, but I always feel I stay warm if my upper body is wrapped up! I wear these boots frequently in the daytime as they’re a great height for walking around and they are also high enough to wear on a casual night out. The boots also have side cut outs, so I like to wear coloured, print or glitter socks for an extra bit of detail.

Metallic Shorts ZaraMetallic Shorts ZaraLastly, my lazy day uni outfit… ripped jeans, jumper and trainers! Let’s be honest here… when you have to be up early and your brain isn’t working, this is going to be the obvious outfit choice!

Zara ripped jeansThe trainers are Nike Flyknits, which I spotted in the Nike store in Las Vegas and had to have after a few wins in the casino!

Nike FlynetsI have also purchased a black roll neck in a thinner material from H&M, which I have also been wearing in all these combos! The thinner roll neck jumper is my choice for when it’s slightly warmer outside.

I hope everyone has had a great start to November and please share this post if you’ve enjoyed!

Product of the week – Raincoats

Leeds is rainy, cold and windy… hence, I’m not a happy bunny up here today. The rain however led me to this product of the week! Pastels still look super cute coming into winter and this jacket is perfect for the weather right now.

Topshop – £55.00

For the FellaElvine

My favourite raincoat for guys is the Elvine – Grundens collaboration mac. A slightly more expensive choice, but this classic jacket is 100% wind and waterproof! The mac is available in more colours and also in womenswear!

DSC_0605I purchased this jumpsuit during the summer and I literally wore it every week! The all in one attire means you don’t have to spend time piecing together an outfit when you’re running late on morning! You can literally just throw it on and walla (voila)! Safe to say due to my morning routine… I wore a lot of jumpsuits! I shot it here with trainers and heels. Trainers I would wear to work and heels on a night out or for dinner etc. VERSATILE!

DSC_0618I’m going to be slipping black long sleeve tops under all my jumpsuits so I can keep wearing them this winter! There’s no reason to not take your summer pieces through to winter if you still like them, just add more layers!

Happy Sunday!

TURTLENECK SURFBOARD

I recently bought a stripe turtleneck crop top from American Apparel and have been using it to layer under jumpers and shirts. I find it’s a nice pop of detail for an outfit, the same as adding some funky socks! My white boots, with a chunky heel add a 90’s vibe and are going to be great to pair with more summery outfits as it gets warmer.

I got my surfboard jumper and the Beyonce Concert I went to last month, as I am a massive sucker for tour merchandise… But hey I love it and this is how I’ve been wearing it!

I got my hair chopped and coloured this month! It was time for a change so I went shorter and blonder! The fab team at Shine Hair Salon Bristol are the only people I let touch my hair, they are the best! They possess precision and unique flare in cutting and colouring and are always on hand with inspirational ideas if you just can’t decide what to do!
