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??
