Stripey Sweater

Stripey Sweater

Jumpers are an essential when it’s cold outside. But there is such a variety of types to buy it’s often difficult to make up your mind. From cashmere sweaters to just jersey sweaters. The possibilities are endless. Although, of course I am always fond of a good chunky knit sweater, I have more recently been loving thinner ribbed jumpers. Also I’ve discovered how much I like boat necks! Something I never thought I would say but here we are.

I picked this striped jumper up from my local GAP outlet. Seriously their clothes are pretty underrated. You can get some really good deals in there and signing up to their mailing list gets you extra savings so is highly worth it. In total I paid just over £6 for this jumper. A total steal if you ask me. The retail price was in the region of £25 so such a great saving.

The sweater is a sort of off white colour with neon pink stripes. I usually just stick to more neutral colours but this pink really appealed to the girl inside me! I do feel like it’s not too in your face either as the creamy colour tones it down a bit. The colours compliment each other perfectly.

The jumper is  just the right thickness. Admittedly I’m a bit of a sweaty betty so big jumpers don’t do me many favours. When I go to college, I walk around 3 miles everyday just too and from the bus so a big jumper is always much fun as well as a coat. So this little number has become my go to! I’ve really enjoyed tucking it in to my jeans as it is a bit long. All short girls can relate. I also pair this with my brown boots ( I mean brown boots I’ve stolen from my sister). It’s a scoop neck so shows some flesh, I know shock horror in winter but why the hell not?? I have never gone for more revealing jumpers like this before. If this can be classed as revealing? But I kinda like the sauciness haha! And it gives you a slimmer appearance 🙂

So yeah basically I’m a big fan of this jumper. 10/10 would recommend. And if your in the market for a new jumper then head down to Gap they’ll have you covered!
