The Roll Neck Sweater

The roll neck sweater with skinny jeans and Louboutin Pigalle heels…

Roll neck sweaters have been a style that I’ve wanted to try for absolutely ages. I used to wear them as a child, but finding one which meets my requirements as an adult has been challenging for years. I can’t wear wool or mohair as it gives me a rash, so that eliminated about 80% of the sweaters I’ve had to try over the months and others were too thick and chunky, which for a bigger chested girl just doesn’t work at all without making you look huge and frumpy. I wasn’t really into the tight fitting ones that you can get either as I found them too smart, I wanted something casual and cosy.

Then, I found this gorgeous roll neck jumper from River Island! I completely fell in love with it when I saw it and I thought it looked perfect! It has no itchy fibers whatsoever and it has a longer slouchy fit, to look cosy, all while the material looks soft and warm, while still being thin, so all in all, it’s the perfect sweater and definitely worth the months of searching for! This is definitely not a purchase I regret making and I know it’s something I’m going to be wearing time and time again! If you are interested in the fit of it, it does run true to size, I took my usual UK 6 size in it and it fits me well. I even think the little zippers on the side are really pretty, they are functioning too if you should wish to use them!

So for the outfit, I decided to pair the roll neck sweater with my Citizens of Humanity Rocket high rise skinny jeans in Axel, finished off with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black and my Rebecca Minkoff Denim Love Cross Body Bag. I feel like this outfit really has a mature edge to it and that’s definitely something I lean towards now when styling my outfits. As I’m 26 (I know, I look a lot younger), I feel like it is time I started dressing older so that I’m taken more seriously. A lot of the time if I’m not wearing heels or I’m wearing something really casual for errands, I will get asked why I’m not at school, which will obviously be beneficial when I’m older of course, but for right now, it’s not, ha ha. I actually do think that this might be one of my favourite outfits of the year so far! What do you think?

SHOPBOP & EAST DANE SPRING SALE IS NOW ON!

And… First news for you all! My favourite online store to shop and work with, Shopbop, has a Spring sale going on right now! It just launched and you can get up to 25% off your order! It’s on until March 8th and it works by saving 15% with a purchase over $250, saving 20% with a purchase over $500 and saving 25% with a purchase over $1000! You know what this means! It’s time to put all your purchases together with your family and friends, grouping it into one big order so you can save more money! That’s what I would definitely do! This of course works for the guys too on East Dane, just do exactly the same. Enter the code BIGEVENT15 at the checkout to get your discount and you should be well away! I’ve selected a few of my favourite pieces from the sale just below! Happy Shopping!

I love being able to work with brands and working with them on a referral or affiliate basis is how I’m able to keep my blog going, so it would be a huge benefit to me if you could! I never usually like to ask this, but I wanted to let you know! I really hope you like my outfit here and I would love to know what you think of it! Of course I have included the links of my pieces to buy just below the second photo and at the bottom of this post in collage format, so it’s easy to snap them up!

    You’re looking great in that outfit. 🙂

    I’m absolutely hopeless at guessing ages (so I try not to… LOL ) but I’d certainly have placed you below 26 if I were to have taken a guess.

    Beautiful casual chic. I love your new roll neck sweater and the heels are to die for. I never shop at Shopbop or East Dane but I checked them out. They have lovely stuff but it’s quite pricey.

      Thanks Mira! Yeah they do have some great things, it’s cheaper to buy from the US though for those labels than in Europe, that’s for sure!

    Another stunning look, Lorna! You are absolutely gorgeous, and I love that pink lipstick on you. I also love how you styled this outfit, the black goes so well with that sweater and it just looks so classy and sophisticated.

    i have always been apprehensive about turtle neck sweaters……but you have styled it quite effortlessly…
    Looks great.. how do you manage wearing such high heels…since when did you start wearing them?…would love to see a post from you on wearing heels…
    happy women’s day!

      Thank you! I think the turtle necks are amazing! I have been wearing high heels for a few years. I can’t stay in them for a huge time or walk in them for long when they are this high, but boots I can. It just takes a lot of experience and practice, and a lot of pain lol! I do have a post on how to walk in your Christian Louboutin shoes on my blog already if you wanna run a search for it!
