“ Soul Cal / ladies jumper style dress. „
When it comes to buying clothes I do attempt to buy things that will be suitable for wearing all year round but as it has been so bloody cold lately my little tshirts and jeggings simply werent cutting it anymore, so I decided to invest in a couple of jumper dresses to see me through the winter. Most people think its a choice between: being warm or looking good but I wanted to try and find something in between so after a lot of searching I found this 'Soulcal Birdseye Jumper Dress' along with a few others Ill review at a later date. This dress looked perfect for me as it looked like it would be proper cosy and comfy to wear but also fashionable enough so I didnt feel like a frump in a jumper and thankfully this dress turned out to be the perfect choice.
Price: £20 + P&P when buying online.
Stockists: Republic & Amazon.
Other Info: Also available in Black & White, available in sizes 8,10 & 12 online, machine washable & this dress is a crew neck, knitted style.
I dont think the image in this case really does the dress justice - even though it does look exactly the same in real life - but in my opinion its much nicer. The dress is a dark grey in colour with little white dots (which I assume are the bird eyes?) all over the front and back, at the bottom is a large white pattern and in the middle is the plain grey cut off - which I like to add a belt to to make the dress a bit more dressed up. The sleeves on this dress are mid-length which actually makes the dress much comfier to wear and although the top is quite low cut (which I love as jumper dresses are usually right around your neck!) the dress itself is a little bit longer than Id normally wear. In this case though I like it because it helps add to the warmth aspect but the low front still makes this sexy enough to wear anywhere - its a good average.
The part you wont be able to see on the image is that this dress has a hood on the back which I really love as it helps add to the wintery feel of the dress overall. One thing I will say is even though this dress fits me perfectly in most aspects the hood is massive and falls over my face all the time so I cant really wear it if Im walking around but as it fits so well everywhere else Im not going to count that as a disadvanatage. Also I expected this dress to be a little irritating on my skin - as jumper dresses Ive bought in the past have been a little itchy - but I havent had a problem with this one so far its very comfy and not itchy in the slightest.
Normally I have issues with Republic's sizing guide as I can never find the perfect one for me but in this case a size 10 - which is my normal size - fits perfectly so if your thinking of buying this buy it in your usual size and it should fit like a glove. Ive worn this dress quite a few times now and even though I wasnt 100% sure of this at first (I thought it might look a bit granny for my style) literally every person Ive seen whilst wearing this has said it looks so nice and really wintery - in fact a few of my friends have gone and bought one for themself because they liked it so much. The dress goes with loads of things and although I usually wear it with chunky black tights I have worn it with jeans and heels and the look has worked just as well so this is versatile enough to wear with anything in your wardrobe and will last you all winter!
Im very glad I bought this dress and I fully recommend it to all women out there who are looking for something to wear during winter - its one for all ages and looks great with everything!
Thanks For Reading.
