It is cold outside people! I mean seriously, it's autumnal already and I have been wearing jumpers and sweatshirts! I've actually just bought a new one.. it's grey with Big Ben on the front and Cookie Monster is wrapped around the clock, it's fabulous! You'll probably see some photos of it eventually!
If you’ve got a jumper that you just love, you’ll love this guide. Here we have lots of different ways you can wear your favourite sweater, so you can make the most of it and get value for money. You’ll never be stuck for an outfit again with these points!
With a Skirt
Wearing your favourite jumper with a skirt could be a really nice way to dress it up. Depending on the style of your top, you could tuck it into the skirt or wear it over the top; whatever looks best. It’s up to you what you wear with the rest of the outfit. You could wear boots and tights for a more casual look, or some heels to go for a casual drink. There’s no need to look frumpy or boring when you wear your favourite sweater with your favourite skirt!
I love the way an oversized sweater looks with leggings, so this look is one of my favourites! You could even throw on some jeggings or skinny jeans to get the same kind of look. I then like to wear a casual pair of flats or brogues to complete the look.
Oversized with Boots
If your jumper is very oversized, wearing it with boots is a nice idea. You can go bare legs if you dare and it isn’t too cold, or wear a pair of your favourite tights. Sometimes I like to wear patterned tights to add texture and make the look more fun. I also have a great pair of maroon leggings which look fab with some leather boots and big grey jumper!
Shorts and Tights
There’s nothing wrong with wearing shorts during the winter, so long as you wear tights with them. Another great way to include even more colour, pattern, and texture in your outfit. It’s a great way to repurpose your summer/going out shorts too, so you can get the most value for money from them. I also love hoodies with denim shorts, tights and suede boots!
Jeans and Heels
If you want the perfect casual drinks outfit, this is it. Wear some jeans and heels with your favourite jumper and you’re good to go, say Aran Sweaters Direct. You’ll be kept toasty warm while still looking dressed up enough not to feel self conscious. Who cares if other people are wearing miniskirts and dresses; you’re the most comfortable of them all! This is actually one of my favourite outfits for the winter.. I have a gorgeous black cashmere jumper that I pair with skinny jeans and black heels. So chic, so comfy, so warm!
Over a Dress
Wearing a sweater over a dress is a really nice layering tip, so this technique could be perfect for you. There’s no need to keep your dresses for the summer time, especially when you can layer them up to create multiple different looks. You can pretty much use all of your summer essentials, add your sweater and your tights and you have a completely new winter look!!! Wooohoo!
I hope you love these different ideas, and you use lots of them this winter to get the most out of your favourite jumper. If there’s a way you like to wear yours that I haven’t mentioned here, please let me know in the comments. Enjoy experimenting, and remember that a new season doesn’t need to mean an entirely new wardrobe!
