Hello new jumper of dreams I simply can’t get enough of. It’s all about new knitwear for me at the moment, I’ve been loving filling my wardrobe with various different knits to keep me going throughout the cold spell. As much as I love wearing the fail-safe combo of a jumper and jeans, I must admit it’s starting to get a little boring! This has led to me buying countless jumpers (which I definitely don’t need but I’m also not complaining too much…)
Despite currently living in jumpers and jeans, for the sake of avoiding being too repetitive with my outfits I decided to give the jeans a break (albeit not for long I imagine) and pop on my favourite skirt of the winter. I’m genuinely surprised by how much I’ve worn this vinyl skirt as I didn’t think the vinyl trend was for me. Believe it or not, I wasn’t actually sure about whether I’d get much, if any, wear out of it but it just works with everything I own!
I’ve paired this skirt with both simple roll neck tops and thick knit jumpers like this one for a casual approach and love the way it comes together – there’s something about it that is so effortlessly stylish. By default I would associate a vinyl skirt with dressing up and going out but I haven’t even tried styling it for a night out and am rather enjoying dressing down this statement piece.
Of course I need to talk a bit about this jumper, I’m loving the fact stripes are making a comeback and these bold colours are super fun! I’ve spotted so many amazing striped knits recently and I just want them all! I have my eye on those rainbow tops everybody seems to be wearing right now. This jumper is New Look and I’m completely obsessed with the colour combo, there’s something really retro about it that I love. Available in four different colourways: pink (the one I’m wearing), red and blue, I tried two out of the three and decided on keeping the pink because I really loved the combination of colours.
One thing I love about experimenting with my style is the discoveries I make whilst doing so. This skirt and jumper combo is one I would probably steer clear of but I really love the combination of colours and textures. This outfit somehow manages to be stylish (at least in my opinion) and perfect for winter!
