Hi guys! I hope you’re all having a great week so far. This blog post is all about knitwear and how it’s still okay to wear it even though the winter months are long gone. Once the evenings become longer and brighter, jumpers usually go back into your wardrobe and only come back out when the rain and snow decides to come back. However, more and more people are now teaming light jumpers with their favorite Spring outfits to create a complex new look. I’ve included some style tips and links to my latest S/S inspired street style look. Have a read and let me know your thoughts!
Irish weather is not exactly reliable, so most of us struggle to know what to wear in order to still look fashionable in Spring. The answer is cropped jumpers, light knitwear and cardigans, all of which are perfect additions to be worn with dresses and sandals.
Cropped jumpers are perfect for those days when the weather is slightly cool but you want to wear a dress. A cropped jumper fits perfectly over dresses so you can wear bare legs and still keep warm. The dress is still on show and your figure will not be swamped by a large jumper. If it does get warmer throughout the day, you can easily take off the jumper and show off your dress. Winning!
An alternative to the cropped jumper is an oversized thin jumper. If you are unsure whether the sun will come out that day, layering an oversized thin jumper over a shirt is the perfect alternative to wearing a winter coat. Wear the two with a pair of skinny jeans to finish off the look. If the weather gets warmer during the day or you want to change into an ‘evening look’, simply remove the jumper. Accessorise by adding an oversized necklace.
STEAL MY STYLE
I am loving colourful crew neck jumpers in slouchy, vintage-inspired styles lately. Chalk up your chunky knits for a statement twist to the simplest of looks. Why not experiment with lengths and layer a crop jumper over a longline shirt, giving your day wear another dimension. From fluffy knits to candy coloured crochet tops there are plenty of ways to layer knits. I love the cold shoulder effect and colour of this particular jumper (and it’s so soft).
Whether you’re a skinny, straight, or slim jeans kinda girl, the lighter the better this Spring. I love a good pair of high waist white skinny jeans and these are a great fit. The length is perfect and they are quite stretchy too. You could also wear this with a basic tee by day and add barely-there heeled sandals to take your denim from day to night.
A trusty pair of flats mean comfort and cool into one! Loafers are a must this season in all shapes and colours. Perfect for a casual or dressy look. I would also pair them with boyfriend jeans and a bomber jacket.
The ultimate crossbody bag with a leather look. I love everything about this Benetton beauty. The size, colours and the long chain – it was love at first sight. I have A LOT of black/navy bags so I wanted to go for a lighter colour and this one caught my eye. It’s also available in a range of colours.
