The Shirt Underneath The Jumper Outfit
The classic white shirt underneath a smart jumper/sweater has been a look that I have favoured for years. It’s always been one that never really worked that well for me though and that’s mostly due to having a larger chest so the shirt wouldn’t button all the way to the top, or feeling really uncomfortable and restricted in that kind of layering. When I saw this Oasis Grey Jumper Over Shirt combination though, I thought it was perfect! I actually bought it back in April or May after contemplating it, and it just so happened to fit perfectly, have a great length, and is actually really flattering as well as comfortable. It’s basically just a lightweight grey knitted jumper with a white collar and shirt tails sewn into it, so it’s just one top, creating the illusion that it’s two. Ideal right? That’s why I’ve called it the lazy way!
Since this jumper and shirt situation is smart, I wanted to style it in a dressed up way, but with a little bit of a casual element so it doesn’t look like I’m headed to the office. I chose my PAIGE Hoxton Crop Skinny Jeans in Evenlina (they’re super comfortable!) and then opted for my RAYE Grey Heels, to complement the jumper. I didn’t know which route to take with my accessories, so Adam suggest the Chanel Wallet on Chain, however I was hesitant at first as I thought I wanted some colour, but it turns out the only colour I needed was the blue from the jeans and that was just right. I then wore my RADO Open Heart Skeleton Watch again (you can tell I love it!) just to finish it all off. I do like how everything turned out in the end and I think it would be suitable for work (depending on the dress code) as well as day time wear.
Since we shot these photos a couple of weeks ago, it was actually incredibly windy and getting the shots in-between my hair looking like it had come through a bush was tricky! Luckily about 6 photos were salvageable for this outfit post, but the outtakes were not, ha ha. The elements are always tricky when you want to do your outfit shoots! If it’s not the wind, it’s the glaring sun, if it’s not the sun, it’s the low lighting, if it’s not the lighting, it’s the rain… As you can see, it goes on like that. The perfect location is often an impossible one to find! Anyway, do let me know what you think of this smarter outfit of mine, whether you’re a fashion blogger or just a reader! Lorna xx.
