So I don’t know about you but where I am its getting to that time of year when all i want to do is wrap up warm and stay by the fire with a hot cocoa. And when the cold hits, there is no other alternative then to escape to the woolly-pulley your Grandma knitted you three Christmas’ ago, you know the one, where one of the sleeves is slightly bigger than the other and Santa looks psychotic with one pupil disproportionate to the other. If you aren’t following me, then honestly its a blessing to you. Yes, we all have that awful Christmas jumper, that we are almost guilt tripped into wearing for five minutes every year, to be in the “Christmas Spirit”. Well my friends, lets say a fine farewell to those itchy Christmas disasters and start again, embracing the knitwear appearance. So this my fellow Winter Jumper sufferers is how to escape Rudolph’s bright Red nose resting on your belly this Winter!
Get this look
Pick a plain coloured simplistic knitted jumper, then layer with enhancing cosy accessories! We have gone for a chilling Navy blue jumper accompanied by a warming plumb colour to contrast and neutralize each other out. We have chose a feature patterned piece of a tartan scarf and picked out the two main colour’s for the hat and scarf. By applying block colouring to the hat and jumper we enhanced the colour’s on the scarf bringing the whole look together.
Wear your hair how YOU want! This look is about warmth and comfort liaising with looking socially acceptable, which is something we all battle with, even if we don’t care to admit it, but no one can stand in front of me and tell me that they have never experienced getting up on a very cold winter morning , in which they have already struggled to get out of bed, and looked into the mirror wondering if your onesie is socially acceptable to go out in, then decided upon the disheartening truth that it isn’t before debating calling in sick and spending the day in bed. So where that hair how in the hell you want, plait it, pony it, let it all down, that’s your choice and touch of individuality to this look! We have casually and loosely plaited the hair to the side for a naturalistic style.
I don’t think we have ever made it more simple for you! We have used a gorgeous ‘Aztec’ patterned jumper as our main feature and contrasted it with the touch of purple in the gloves and the thin grey scarf loosely swung around the neck. We have paired the jumper and accessories with counterbalancing navy chino styled trousers. Hair is naturally styled just as with the Ladies look, so there is your opportunity to own your look.
Love the winter warmth of the winter boots my friends, any excuse to put your feet in such comfort, lay the heels to the side for the day and reward your feet with the time lasting favourite.
Embrace this playful, cheery look and don’t let the chill weather ruin your style… or give you hypothermia.
