Statement knitwear

So, it’s time to talk knitwear. All my big jumpers are still in my winter wear box but I have a few autumn beauties I’m getting good wear from.

I love this cobalt houndstooth Zara jumper. It makes me look far too busty though. I did try it with my Zara cobalt blazer on top but it looked Sloaney and I didn’t feel comfortable at all. I am trying to think of a different way to wear it that will be more flattering. Here I am wearing it with very old ripped jeans.

Grey cashmere jumpers are more of a soft whisper than loud statement, I know. I love the softness of the two grey N.Peal cashmere jumpers I got in spring though and even more so with the addition of a rather blingy necklace which I think takes them into statement territory.

Grey, neon, animal print. My three loves. This Chinti & Parker jumper is every bit as lovely as I’d hoped. (And my smallest love has photo bombed me again!)

I love these J.Crew Cashmere Tippi jumpers. I have black, forest green and this neon pink. I did have another one but I threw it away by mistake. I want to cry just writing that.

I shall be adding another knit. I’m undecided between these beauties. Which would you go for?

Or another cashmere Tippi from J Crew in the black of heather duck grey?

There is one more contender from Chinti & Parker but it has almost ruled itself out on price. There’s only 1 left so I am not linking until I am sure I won’t be buying it! 🙂
