Autumn is a funny time of year for me – I find the dark mornings and dark nights a bit depressing, but I love the cosy evenings spent snuggling under a blanket surrounded by candles and fairy lights. The one thing I am sure I love about autumn though is knitwear. I could buy jumpers all day every day. This autumn I’ve picked up a few jumper dresses and I wanted to share how I style them up.
Outfit 1 – Over the Knee Boots
I never thought I’d be the kind of gal who wore over the knee boots, but I bought a pair from ASOS last year (similar here £40) and I was surprised at how often I found myself reaching for them. I love wearing them because they keep my legs warm, but they also make me feel a bit more covered up when I’m wearing a shorter dress.
This jumper dress from TOBI (£36) is a shorter one, so I immediately thought of my over the knee boots when I tried it on. I love the sleeves on this dress, they bring the perfect balance to the fitted body, although I can imagine I’ll end up dragging them through my dinner. Can we also talk about how stunning the colour is?
Outfit 2 – Jeans
If you’re tall like me, you might find that a jumper dress can be a bit short, just like this one on me (TOBI, £16) – it just about covers my bum, but one false move and I’d be flashing more than I want to. So I teamed this jumper dress with black jeans (mine are from Dorothy Perkins, and are now in the sale for £16.80) and I love the look.
I’ve kept it casual with a pair of black high top Converse (£55) and my black Mango biker jacket (similar here) over the top. I’d wear this for work or for a trip out at the weekend and I love that the high neck means I can skip the scarf.
Outfit 3 – Ankle Boots
My third jumper dress is a really long one and it is so cosy and soft I wish you could touch it via the screen! I picked it up in Amsterdam from a pop up shop that provides clothing for women in need with their profits. I would happily slouch around the house in this one as it is, but I think it needs a bit of smartening up for work or play.
I cinched the waist in with a black belt (mine was about £4 from Primark) and stuck some thick tights underneath. I finished the outfit off with thick socks and my snakeskin Doc Martens.
A big shout out to Chloe, who took all of the snaps for this post!
