Wardrobe Staple – The Jumper

One of my favourite things about Winter is being able to snuggle up in a cosy jumper. Cold weather calls for thick, chunky knits to keep the December chill out, and a good jumper can be very versatile.

Wear them with jeans, skirts, leggings or over the top of dresses, dress them up or down for different occasions – the humble jumper is one wardrobe staple you shouldn’t be without (at any time of the year).

I’m a jumper addict, so writing this post and not buying anything was torturous
