The jumperThe Jumper - Jewellery Details

jumper: French Connection, necklaces: Bulgari, Forever 21, Massimo Dutti

A few weeks ago I did a post about the perfect t-shirt. Well say hello to the jumper that goes with everything. This was a steal from French Connection during their summer sale – probably one of my favourite sales out of all the shops. I find it difficult to trawl through loads of jumbled clothing racks (er, sorry Topshop!), and so tend to do my sale shopping online, but FCUK sales are always well organised. This jumper was another one of those ‘got-to-have-it’ moments. The mix of silk, wool and cotton has given the fabric a really luxurious, soft-knit feel without being itchy or shapeless. The colour is great too – a deep, almost brownish charcoal-grey that looks great against bright jewellery like these necklaces. It’s such an amazing piece, I have to force myself not to wear it all the time!

The T-shirt

ASOS Zoe Karssen 'young' t-shirt

Sometimes you just know. I saw this beauty during a lunchtime browse on ASOS and bagged it right away. Everything about it is perfect, from the slight orangey-red colour to the length of the sleeves. I love the fact that it is oversized as well, as it makes for a really versatile piece. I like tucking the front of long t-shirts into my trousers/shorts/skirts and leaving the rest to hang out as it gives the outfit a really relaxed, nonchalant feel.

I’m going to have to keep an eye on Zoe Karssen now. This young Dutch label have the best collection of t-shirts and sweats – not too cutesy, not too grungy – and I want them all! Goodbye bank balance, hello laid-back awesomeness …
