“ Brand: Topshop / Type: Sweat „
As alot of people who regulary read my reviews will know, I am slightly obsessed with Topshop! Whenever I have some spare cash I go and have a little splurge, and although the clothes in there are quite overpriced, I have found most of the clothing I have purchased from there to be of good quality and long lasting, so therefor worth the price I paid - I would rather spend £30ish on a jumper from Topshop that will last for years, rather than £10 on a jumper from Primark that will last for 3 months before it loses shape. I bought this particular jumper around Easter time, so I have had it for quite a while now and it is still good as new.
This is basically an oversized sweater, so it's quite plain to be honest! It has a scooped neck which has stitching detailing on it which I really like, and it has a ribbed hem and ribbed sleeves. The sleeves are quite long which I like as it keeps my hands warm in the winter and it also looks cute with the sleeves rolled up. To be honest I was expecting a heavy, thick, warm jumper (I bought mine via the website), but it's actually quite a lightweight, jersey sort of top. It does have a very slight bit of weight to it due to it being oversized but it is not really warm enough to wear in the winter unless you wear a coat/jacket over it. The jumper isn't as long as I expected it to be either. I expected it to be waistline length, but it's around bum length on me and makes me look a bit stubby! I'm only 5'3 though, so on taller girls it will probably look better. The jumper isn't hugely oversized, but has a nice amount of 'looseness' to it, making it feel comfy and snuggly, it's a nice and casual jumper and I mainly wear it out and about to the supermarket/town etc and wear it on lazy days. It isn't really the sort of thing I would wear to uni though but that's personal preference! I have found that this jumper goes well with jeans, but I think it looks a bit TOO care-free with leggings. It's too long to be worn with shorts.
Sizing and Colour Options
I have this jumper in a gorgeous shade of bergundy red. Other colours available include green and blue. Sizes available are 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16. I would reccomend getting your usual size as it is oversized, and if you get a size bigger then it could potentially make you look bigger than you are and be quite unflatterig.
Price, Value for Money and Availability
The downside to this jumper is the price.. £26! Quite steep, in my opinion, however I admit it is worth it as it's good quality and versatile. The jumper can be bought via the Topshop website or in store.
Material and Washing It
The jumper is lovely and soft. It's 100% cotton and feels good quality, it's strong and doesn't lose its shape in the wash. It's machine washable and washes well, it also dries pretty quickly as it's not a heavyweight jumper if that makes sense! Mine has bein washed countless times and the colour has not faded.
I love this jumper. I just wish that Topshop would lower the price so that I could buy the other 2 colours! I'd definetly reccomend this jumper - 4/5, it would be 5/5 but the price and the longer than expected length lets it down.
