Dressing Up a Plain Jumper

I have the continual problem of wanting to wear something cosy and warm to work, while also needing to look reasonably professional. On a freezing cold, rainy morning there is nothing I’d rather do than pull on a slouchy jumper and sink into it behind my desk, but sleeping isn’t really encouraged in the office, and you know, I have stuff to do (I promise!).


Jumper: eBay £12
Necklace: Primark £4
Shirt: Vintage
Jeans: Miss Selfridge
Boots: Vintage

I got this jumper from eBay after searching for ‘fisherman knit’, and the shop I got it from comes in every colour going and I think I’ll go back and get a navy version too. I like the androgyny of wearing a white shirt under a jumper but making it feminine with skinny jeans and red lipstick.


Lipstick in Raschel Red: & Other Stories £12

I worry about looking too manly if I go for full tailoring, so a bit of bling definitely helps. I got this necklace from Primark for £4 and I’ve had loads of compliments on it so that makes it even more of a bargain!
