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!

For Autumn this year I think my favourite thing is going to be roll necks! I love how they keep you warm, cosy and the fact that they can be layered. I’ve also been wearing them with shorts as the weather has been so in-between sun and clouds lately!

I love the clean lines and sleekness of this top and you’ll definitely be seeing it in a lot more posts in different combos!

When in H&M I also tried on lots of pieces from their new Studio collection, which I would definitely recommend checking out as there are some lovely premium looking garments!

Never Under Dressed – STREET STYLE

9 Jan

I got snapped outside the James Long show by Never Under Dressed and was featured on their ‘What the women are wearing at the men’s shows’ page online.

I was wearing my vintage tartan mohair coat which I nabbed at a car boot sale a couple of years ago and knew would come in handy one day! Luckily this Winter it ticked off the tartan trend (one that always seems to come back around) and the mohair trend in one! Never underestimate what you can find at a car boot sale if you are on the vintage hunt!

I was also wearing my Boy London hat which I have customised. Inspired by the Jill Saunders hats, I ordered the netting material online and then sewed on pearls from an old necklace which I no longer wear. I practically live in this hat and frequently get asked where it is from! There’s loads of ways you can customise your own beanies so get creative and see what you come up with!

My T-shirt underneath is Criminal Damage, my trousers are Zara and my boots Topshop. I love the Zara trousers as they feel like leggings but are slightly thicker and have a zip and button, which is great for wearing with tops that finish at the hips. These are now also in the sale online for £17.99!
