3 Ways To Wear Colour-Pop Knitwear: PART ONE

So my gorgeous bright yellow-green jumper was one of my Christmas presents and has also featured in my post here

But inspired by some people's comments, I've decided to honour it with a whole post of it's own! Because it's quite an 'out-there' colour, I thought I'd show you how to create 3 different outfits with it - Going Out, Smart and Casual. They are all very simple outfits, something anyone could wear and create very easily, I haven't gone too mental/high fashion (but that's mainly because I lack the wardrobe to do that, sob :() 

The jumper in question was from Boden via eBay Outlet but there a few very similar in Topshop at the moment here, here and here

Faux-Leather Skirt - H&M (old, similar here and here)
Tights - M&S
Suede Wedges - New Look (old, similar here and here)
I went for a pretty casual 'going out' look, but a jumper is generally a pretty casual look. The leather skirt toughens up the look for a more edgy look. These heels are my babies, I've had them for years but the suede is very scuffed and they aren't very black anymore!

Stay tuned (or reading?) for part two!
Until then my darlings..

  1. If your suede shoes are a bit discoloured you can always get yourself a can of suede restorer! It's maybe like £3 a can? And it basically just re-sprays the colour on to your shoes :)
