OOTD: Roll Neck Reverie

These days I can wear a pleather skirt to work (or fur, sequins etc. possibly not feathers but I’m yet to try that one) without anyone batting an eyelid but things weren’t always this way. I remember the moment I started making more of an effort in my appearance and dressing up for the office and my colleagues all thought I had a hot date after work! I guess wearing skirts and dresses were a big change from my usual pants and sweater vest combos and people were taking notice.

At that stage in my style evolution I vowed never to wear bulky sweater vests and jumpers again as they just weren’t flattering and I was just not confident in my choices. What I didn’t realise was that it wasn’t necessarily the sweater but what I was teaming them with and how they were styled. Up until the last year or so I didn’t have ONE jumper in my whole wardrobe. I’m not sure if it was my attitude to them or the KEEEEEEEYYYUUUUTE options out there but I was suddenly really drawn to them again.

I saw this roll neck jumper on asos and I immediately fell in love! That voluminous neckline is everything I’ve ever dreamed of and MORE! I also love that it’s cream and can be teamed with any other colour or texture. The size runs a little bigger than I would usually wear (I think the key is wearing a fitted jumper for a more svelte, less bag-lady look) but that’s easily fixed with another new obsession of mine – the half-front tuck. I picked up this hot tip from Bron at Flat Bum Mum and I couldn’t agree more!  Just a little tuck makes a world of difference and creates more shape and a flattering silhouette.

What do you think of the tuck? Is this something you’ll be trying out??

  1. Will you be my style mentor…like come to my house and tell me everything that just won’t work and show me how to wear other things? lol I seriously wear Yoga pants and t-shirts all the time. When I dress up a little bit it’s usually jeans and a t-shirt with a little eyeliner. My idea of dressing up is just sad and frumpy.

    On another note. I love this whole outfit. Too cute!

  2. You look gorgeous mama! Better get into that chunky knit! I remember how horrified you used to be by the idea but it looks truly fabulous! Cute cute cute xo

Now it's your turn...let me know what you think. I love reading your comments! :)
