“ Brand: Boohoo / Type: Jumper / Pullover „
When I get to stay at home for the whole day, without popping into town, sorting the horses out or going into my partners office I don't want to be dressing up and I love nothing more than wearing a pair of leggings and a long comfortable jumper and if the need should arise for me to go out I simply just put my Uggs on and I'm done! As much as I like dressing up there is nothing better than lounging around the house in comfortable clothes.
I have a few boyfriend cardigans/ jumpers but recently I was looking for something a bit different and without a cartoon print or an animal stuck in the middle of the jumper - I haven't jumped on the bandwagon for that phase of fashion! One website I sometimes look at is Boohoo, I like their clothes but can never normally find anything I really, really like but a few months ago I ended up getting a few items from them one of which was a long cardigan called Emme.
The cardigan comes in three colours, white, coral and green. I opted for the white just because I preferred it over the other colours and I'm not really one for wearing a lot of pink so coral was definitely out of the question.
One me the cardigan comes to the top of my thighs but manages to cover my bum so I can wear it out just over leggings if I wanted to without exposing too much of myself! It is quite a generous fit and I opted for the small to medium size (they don't go any smaller) and I even found it a little baggy around my shoulders and my sides but baggy enough that it was falling off me. End of the day it is nice to have a little room but it would have been nice to have a smaller size. The ribbed hem give it a slightly elasticated finish to it so it grips to your thighs slightly which helps keep it in place.
The main detail on this jumper is the stars. The stars are in the fabric, they are not embroidered on or appliquéd. The stars on the white jumper are coral. Even though I'm not a big fan of pink clothes it is nice to have a little splash of colour and obviously coral and white go well together. The stars are only on the front of the jumper and come in various sizes. The stars are quite narrow in shape which is nice as they don't cover the whole of the jumper but instead add a nice amount of detail. There are two little pockets at the front of the jumper and I think these are purely for extra detail as I certainly don't put anything in them!
The jumper is made from 65% cotton and 35% polyester. I find that the jumper is incredibly soft to wear and doesn't itch or irritate my skin whatsoever. Emme is easy to wash and can be put in the washing machine on a normal 40 degree wash. So far mine as been washed a few times and it hasn't lost its shape and it hasn't shrunk. I do dry it flat in order to keep its shape and it does manage to dry fairly quickly and I think that is partly down to the jumper not being overly thick.
For me this jumper is incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. It teams up well with a pair of leggings or skinny jeans and manages to create a relaxed, casual look. It washes well, dries well and doesn't loose its shape so for me that makes a great jumper even better as there is nothing worse than clothes loosing its shape. I've had mine now for a while and it still looks as good as new so I can't complain!
Emme as I said comes in three colours, coral, white and green all with colour co-ordinating stars as detail. It is only available in two sizes; small/medium and medium/large. I am an 8 and sometimes a 6 and I did find the small/medium a little large but not overly so. It is only available from Boohoo via their website and costs a reasonable £15.00 (don't forget to take into account postage and packaging when purchasing online).
Overall, a lovely casual jumper which keeps you warm, washes well and goes with most clothes in the wardrobe. For me it was exactly what I was looking for, something casual rather than formal and this jumper manages to create that look. It's price is great and it is a real bargain. I would definitely recommend.
