Question: What’s better than a nice jumper? A nice jumper dress of course! After all, more is more, especially in winter. And when it’s cold, I don’t know about you but I want my jumper to stretch a bit further than my midriff (though maybe not quite to my knees). This one has a nice exposed zip at the back, signalling to everyone that it is in fact meant to be a dress/tunic and not my husband’s jumper which I’ve been stretching over bent knees for a week (although what would be wrong with that really?). I’m all for a man-sized jumper but you don’t always have to go that far.I first spied this jumper dress when I popped it in a wish list here and the folks at Sainsburys Tu, kindly sent it my way so I could try it out. Since then, it’s been serving me very well and I recently wore it on a trip to London (hence the obligatory pretty street shots).I sized it up so that it didn’t look too clingy (jumper dresses have a habit of doing that if you’re not careful) and I think it works better as a looser shape, so there’s room to layer up underneath too. However this baggy, over-sized look needs skinny jeans, leggings, even tights to balance it out. I wore it with my M&S faux leather leggings here (now sold out but these would do nicely), but it also looks cute with a pair of slim-fitting cigarette pants and loafers. Think mature student meets cool french gallery worker (of which I am neither sadly).
