Jumper & Skirt Combo

 This is my first fashion post. And what better way to start than with one of my favourite trends. The Jumper And Skirt Combo!

I’m surprised I haven’t talked about clothes yet on my blog, considering how much money I spend on them. My dad is an accountant & financial planner. I would bet all my clothes in my closet, that he sits there now reading this rolling his eyes at me… “have I taught you nothing?”

Sorry dad. Retail therapy is real.

Pairing a jumper and skirt is the perfect in-between season option. In-between weather confuses me greatly. Am I warm? Am I cold? Who knows…?

I know who knows. Alexa Chung knows.

Alexa is my style icon for many things mainly because she looks effortless and you could put a potato sack over her and she’d probably know what belt to match it with to make it red carpet ready.

That was an exaggeration. But I like her.

I was never a skirt wearer until I discovered skirts with jumpers. Now, skirts probably make up a good 1/4 of my wardrobe. And I love that, because they are so comfy and easy to wear.

My favourite option would be a delicate pleated midi skirt paired with a big chunky knit. And maybe some trainers. Comfort level 10.

Another cool option I’m warming to is a mini-skirt paired with a cropped jumper or cardigan (yes I said cardigan. No I’m not 100 years old).

After spending a significant amount of time on Pinterest scrolling through outfit inspo I’d say these are my top 3 tips for this trend:

1. Mix textures – a silk skirt with a fluffy knit

2. Don’t be afraid to mix prints – make sure one colour from each print are the same

3. Choose unexpected colour combinations – double up on colours, or mix pink with red because that’s a thing now.

Check out my Instagram over the next few days for some more jumper and skirt inspo!
