“ Brand: Miss Selfridge / Type: Jumper „
I bought this jumper recently with some of the birthday money that I recieved (a month early!), and I love it. I got it from Miss Selfridge and paid £39 for it which is quite expensive but it will definetly be one of my winter essentials. The jumper is available in a variety of colours - black with cream spots or a dark pink with black spots. I like to keep my clothing quite subtle so opted for the black with cream spots. It's a very dark shade of black so unfortunetly picks up my white dog's fur really easily so I would be aware of that. The spots are a nice creamy white colour and have an undertone of beige. They are quite large and are all over the jumper - front, back, arms, etc. It is a scoop neck jumper which is quite 'open' if that makes sense - it's not the type of the jumper that clings around my neck. The jumper is in a knitted style and so the texture is quite noticeable and makes the jumper look really cosey and chunky. The sleeves are ribbed at the bottom so they cling to my wrists rather than me having the roll them up or keep pulling them down and they are just the right length.
The jumper is really thick and warm. It isn't heavy though and doesn't make me feel bulky and it is suprisingly flattering - it is oversized but because it is quite well fitting around my hips, has a low neck and fitted sleeves, it isn't the type of jumper that makes me look fat or pregnant, especially when paired with tight jeans or leggings. The only downside to this jumper is that the material is 100% acrylic which isn't as soft as cotton and has a bit of a strange feel to it. I have machine washed this and it seemed to be okay, but it came out looking a tiny bit smaller lol - i'm almost certain it has shrunk a little bit. It also seems to of started slightly bobbling already around the front, which I am not impressed with considering I paid almost £40, but I am hoping it isn't too noticeable and with luck it won't get worse.
The sizes available are: 4,6,8,10,12,14,16. I have got it in an 8 and it fits me perfecty, it is true to size and like I said before, although it is oversized it is not too baggy. It is really cute and feminine and the sort of jumper that I can wear in winter with a big chunky scarf and a vest layered underneath. Overall, I don't particullary reccomend this due to the high price and seemingly lack of quality, however if you like it and can afford it, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't buy it.
