NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Grey Jumper Guide

After my last post solely dedicated to the most casual (read: potentially boring) non-colour of them all, I noticed it slowly taking over my wardrobe to the point where I have almost a weeks worth of grey garbs. They break up an all black outfit with ease and make a slightly more formal outfit look a little more laid back. As for my favourites? Here's the run through...

First: The start in the Zara run through (prepare yourselves), this one comes in every colour from baby pink to navy blue. It's surprisingly affordable and is softer than soft. It's figure flattering and the smarter of the four and most unsurprisingly, it's not the only colour I own.

Second: Snug? Check. Flattering? Not so check... There's something about this that I love and I can't quite put my finger on it. It's another Zara number from last seasons sale which both Luce and I managed to pick up on separate shopping trips. (We're even psychically linked now, see?)

Third: Possibly the most "lazy girl" jumper of them all (another Zara sale purchase - boy was I bad last month). It's a slouchy fit that screams "wear me with your most comfortable leggings and slippers". And that 's exactly what I like to do. But it also gives a casual finish when layered over a white shirt and skirt combo.

Fourth: The most recent purchase and the one that rivals my monthly food bill. I fell into Whistles and stumbled across the highly coveted "Comme Ci Comme Ca"sweatshirt. After promising my boyfriend it would be worth nothing when you break it down to cost per wear I've taken to wearing it to work with a crisp white shirt underneath. The ultimate slouchy grey sweat.

  7. These jumpers look super cosy and I too love the colour grey, currently wearing a grey jumper from River Island, the Whistles one is super cute but I just cant justify the price. I even like grey for home interiors and its a part of a 2 colour combo I have on the walls in my bedroom :)

  18. Grey sweatshirts and sweaters are my absolute favorite. I'm definitely not a color girl at all, and there's just something about grey that's so sophisticated.

  21. I love how gray is no longer associated with just working out or frumpy sweats; you've clearly shown it can be just as chic as other colors! And isn't the "cost per wear" what we all fall to when justifying an expensive purchase? I know the feeling!

  27. I absolutely love grey clothing items, I think the shade is always so flattering and can look very dressed up or down so easily by changing accessories - I want to check out all those shades of the #1 Zara one!! X

  28. I don't think there's a blogger out there who does not want that Comme Ci Comme Ca jumper - it looks so comfy!
    I've definitely embraced jumpers this winter and any kind of colour scheme has gone out of the window in my desperation to own as many as possible haha :)
    Great post :)

  38. Grey seems to be my least favourite colour in my wardrobe and I don't seem to have much clothing with great in them. Your post has really inspired me to change it up a little and I will definitely be looking into purchasing grey items.
