A Mirror-selfie Guide to moving on from chunky jumpers

Does anyone else feel like they’re in an on/off relationship with their jumper? Ripping it off one minute, scrambling for it the next? We think it might be the beginning of the end. That chunky knit you’ve relied on since October is on the out. Which begs the question: What will I wear with all my midi skirts now?! Breathe. We’ve been doing some strategic forward-planning (trying on tops in front of the mirror) and we think we’ve cracked it – the 5 tops that will replace your thick and cosy uniform for here until September.

This plain white tee

Is a good white t-shirt a revelation? Not quite. But is it harder to find than you might imagine? 100%. You know how it goes, the neckline is too wide, or the sleeves are too tight, or it’s so thin, you can see your nipples through it. Finding the one is no walk in the sartorial park. Which brings us to this box-ticker of a plain white tee. Not too thin, not too thick, and our personal favourite feature? Long enough for a DIY knot to style with midi skirts and high-waisted jeans. We’ll take ten, thanks!

This shirt

A shirt is the perfect in-betweener when the weather hasn’t quite reached t-shirt heights just yet. This one is especially great because you don’t have to iron it, a strong case in itself  for ordering it on the spot,  but it also happens to be super versatile, zero-effort and available in green and red.

This blouse

If we said the words ‘floral blouse’ to you, you’d be forgiven for instantly thinking of something in your nan’s wardrobe. But this floral blouse is blooming with 2019 energy. The wrap design means you can adapt it for work or happy hour espresso martinis, while the frill detail and bright colour make it an excellent candidate for summer workwear too.

This crop top

Still a little nippy for this one during daylight hours, but with a wool coat draped over the shoulders, this white off-the-shoulder top makes a solid date-night option. Pair with this blush pink midi skirt for Spring ’19 vibes.
