If you’re anything like me, you’ll be freezing in winter and boiling in summer but during those two weeks of Spring and perfect weather, you’ve hit the jackpot. I wear the same things all year round – jeans, jumper, black boots. When I stray out of this sartorial comfort zone/recipe for success, I feel like I’m either veritably dressing up or making a huge mistake. For this reason, I have a vested interest in knitwear. Knitwear is food for my soul, and so when I find a piece that can work in winter, summer and that beautiful heat-regulating space in between (also know as ‘Spring), I die a thousand deaths. Cue this beautiful soft pink number from Boohoo. Oversized with a cut out back and in the colour of the season, this is the perfect staple knit for all occasions.
I sized up to a M/L in this jumper and as I’m currently inhabiting an extremely chubby space right now, popping my mom jeans on felt like a step too far in the shapeless-but-not-in-a-flattering-way direction. I opted for classic black skinnies instead with minimal black and silver accessories, finished off with a low, pony club bun. The oversized fit of this jumper paired with the cut out back means that you’re not going to overheat at the smallest suggestion of sunlight, but the knit is still fairly thick so you can go sans-coat without freezing to death. It’s a win freakin’ win.
A totally thoughtless outfit is one I love most (I am so lazy ffs), and that’s why you’ll rarely see me out of staple transitional knitwear. To save you the bother of trawling t’internet, I’ve popped together a few of my favourite transitional spring knitwear pieces below – I’m loving pinks and nudes right now so those are my faves, but you can’t beat a bit of classic black and grey. What are you fave knitwear pieces at the moment? Feel free to leave links below or push them on over to my social accounts (@chloeplumstead) – I always welcome any help in the shopping department…
