“ Asda George / Puff sleeve jumper „
With the cold weather here in the West Country we've been having lately I have had to completely revamp my wardrobe. I'm a city girl at heart having moved here in June and wasn't prepared for this cold snap here by the sea at all! Yep I moved when we had tourists and an abundance of bikinis on the beach and had I have realised by December I'd of needed a quilted coat and wellies I may have rethought the move completely lol.
However one shop that has been a Godsend to me is Asda. Where I live we have a huge Walmart one and a couple of large stores (no Primark mind!) and so where as I used to purchase lots of clothes from Primark now it tends to be from Asda.
As a rule I am rather pleased with the George range of clothing the shop sells. It can be rather trendy and is usually of good quality and seems to wash and last better than Primarks as well so I'm well catered for here really and I find the prices to be brilliant.
This jumper costing a mere £6.00 is a good example of the ladies clothing George sells. Being puffed sleeved its in fashion at the moment and can be worn with a variety of different clothes!
Made entirely from acrylic this is soft and comes in sizes 8-24. I am a size 10 and this gives a true size 10 in my opinion. In colours teal, black, orange and lylic (which is actually a dark grey), I opted for the black as I usually do as I can team it up with virtually anything then.
What you get is a reasonably long slim fitting jumper with a flattering scoop neckline that isn't too low at all. It has long ribbed cuffs and the waistband is also ribbed giving the otherwise smooth looking and feeling jumper a bit of texture though it doesn't grip too tight at all. It isn't a itchy fabric but a smooth and lightly warm one and it is very light so you can layer it up if you want to.
A section of the sleeve is slightly puffed meaning is has a bit of volume to it which then sleeks down to the cuff. That puff that is given isn't outrageously outlansdish but subtle and gives the jumper a bit of extra style otherwise it would be rather plain.
I like the length and the fit of this alot and its easy to wear it and keep it plain but you can dress it up and look stylish too. I have machine washed and tumble dried it many times, found it very simple to iron and it hasn't bobbled, shrunk or lost any colour at all over time.
This is a nice buy for any lady of any age. I like the fact as well that I can layer this up so I don't overheat!
Only available in Asda stores or from Asdadirect.com costing £6.00 a jumper the black is also available in petite fit for the same price.
