One jumper styled five ways – Now put to the back of your mind the fact that the jumper is pink, it doesn’t matter what colour you personally opt for. A couple of key features your jumper should ideally be to make this work is slightly oversize and a good chunky knit.
I’m going to show you five ways to wear the same jumper stylishly, three smart that you can wear out for lunch or brunch (after lockdown of course 😉 ) and two more casual ways to style whilst at home or when you are doing errands. It’s important when we invest in Spring knitwear that we get the wear before the warmer days kick in.
Forget your coat
Another point and why I said chunky knit – you want to show off the colourful jumper and not hide it under a winter coat… so the layering technique really comes into play here if you are out and about using a car or not walking a great distance.
The hairband technique
To make this look modern and stylish – you will see that I have used this trick in each option – you get two hair bands that you have previously used so they are not too tight that you place on each arm about halfway between the elbow and wrist – you then pull the sleeve up to the elbow and fold over so that the hair band is in your elbow. If you find it too tight, then put these hairbands around a food tin can for a day or two to stretch them. Another tip: when you go to put a coat on, you pull the sleeve down, the bands will then sit just above your wrist and then when you take it off again, you quickly reposition them back.
Stylish outfit one
I wore this to lunch with some girlfriends when I celebrated being in April’s edition of PRIMA magazine – not too over the top for a Saturday lunchtime but I felt very girlie!
Stylish Outfit Two
This outfit I didn’t want to wear a coat, I was popping out for coffee and I wanted to be a little more dressed up but still wear jeans – so I layered the look using a bodysuit and instead of trainers I elevated this potential casual style with snakeskin heeled boots and gold jewellery.
Stylish outfit three
I feel Spring is all about colour – and colour blocking is a great way to boost your personal style. Here I’ve opted for my favourite red trousers for a brunch date but you can literally put any two of your favourite colours together just as long as there is no pattern to make it clash.
It will come down to your own personal style. A great way to get colour inspiration is to use Pinterest, type in the colour of your garment so in this case ‘pink jumper’ or ‘pink jumper street style’ and you will see a vast amount of different inspiration. You just then think about what you already own that you can potentially match it too.
Casual outfit Four
This is one of my first LOCKDOWN #ootd posts – I have personally found it easier to cope with getting through the day by not wearing slippers (saving them for the evening) and I need to stay warm whilst being at my laptop. So this is a perfect comfy outfit and the colour really helps keep me in a positive mood.
Casual outfit Five
One of my last days out – I had worn the lilac dress the day before shopping with hubby, with only a few hours of use, I repeated it the following day but I didn’t want to wear a coat – so again I used the layering technique of putting the lilac bodysuit under the dress, and then the chunky knit as a ‘coat’ – it was perfect for Sunday styling running errands across town, jumping in and out of my car.
