Initially when I saw this Jumper I was drawn to the colour like a magpie. I flew across H&M to get a closer look at what the item was because, yes being a brunette it is a fact that red suits you, at least that's what I have always found and it's a colour that, although can be bright, it doesn't feel a million a miles away from black. For example, if this jumper was in orange it would be fabulous still (in my opinion) but might put some people off. When I realised it was a jumper at first I felt a little deflated. All that bloody dodging and the polite 'excuse me, sorry' jostling (its a English thing) to get a closer look and its a jumper. Then I pulled it out a saw the length and I loved it. There are quite a few subtleties with knitwear this season that I love and feel elevate them so here's a few things to look out for:
I am talking Long Long Long sleeves, the might get in your food kind. Or Bell sleeves which you might loose food in. Honestly, reading this you would think I have no table manners but sometimes it feels like food gravitates to anywhere but my mouth.
By that I mean long length which actually gives you more for your money because the amount of outfits you can actually style increases using one jumper.
I know the above sort of hints at this but oversized seems to be the aim of the game with this seasons knitwear. But, by oversized I mean, well baggy, you know, not fitted, no structure and best of all adaptable, meaning, more bang or wear for your buck.
Although these vary greatly I find the ones that look the chicest and also don't leave you with the chance of pneumonia have slightly higher necklines. They're not a full roll neck but there's just enough material around the ol' neck area to make it a detail.
