“ Brand: ASOS „
~*~ The Purchase ~*~
I've got a bit of a weird obsession with jumpers and I ended up buying quite a few new ones when ASOS had a massive sale on a few months ago. I bought this mainly because it was so cheap but also because it looked really nice and simple, so I thought it'd be a good wardrobe staple and ideal to just throw on with a pair of jeans.
~*~ Price ~*~
The retail price for this jumper is £28.00, however I managed to get mine for £11.00 in the sale. Would I pay the full price? Not in a million years! This is a basic acrylic jumper and an almost identical one can be picked up in Primark or H&M for a fraction of the price.
~*~ Design ~*~
As I said above, this is a really basic jumper. The neckline is scooped and quite wide which I like as I hate jumpers with a high and narrow neckline. The sleeves are really long which I also love because they're long enough to cover my hands which is great in the winter!!
They look nice rolled up as well and the jumper is really versatile due to how simple it is. The waffle knit design is quite neat and the finish is nice. I prefer a cable knit pattern because the waffle knit has got tiny little gaps so I need to wear a vest underneath else a lot of my skin is visible through the jumper, but this isn't an issue.
~*~ Styling It ~*~
This is so easy to style! It looks great with anything. I've recently worn it over a maxi dress and it also looks great with a maxi skirt, shorts & tights, disco pants, jeans, jeggings and so on. I personally wouldn't wear it with leggings though as it isn't very long - it only just comes past the waistband on my jeans. The jumper unfortunately isn't the type that can be dressed up or down; it's very casual and I wear this mainly around the house or layered over a dress or tee shirt when I'm going shopping etc.
~*~ Comfort ~*~
At first I found this jumper quite uncomfortable as the material isn't very soft and it is a little stiff but after a couple of washes it softened and its now really soft and cosey. It's nice and lightweight but quite warm, although it definitely needs to be worn under a coat or jacket in the current weather as it isn't as warm as a big chunky knit due to how lightweight it is and the waffle knit design.
~*~ Sizing and Colour Options ~*~
The jumper is available in two colours, orange and green. I have the green one which is a nice pale shade of mint green. Sizes available are UK6-18 and I'd recommend getting size bigger than your usual size if tou like your jumpers to be baggy as it is very well fitting.
~*~ Quality ~*~
The jumper washes well and there's no major bobbling after several washes, which I was pleasantly surprised by considering that it is 100 percent acrylic.
~*~ Overall ~*~
A nice basic jumper but its very overpriced at the full retail price.
