The Sheer Summer Jumper


I love everything about this jumper.

So much so, I decided it deserved its very own post! I think the first thing that needs to be said is that this jumper cost less than £10. Yup. £9.99 to be exact (okay, so not much less - but still). I'm impressed! 

I spotted this in H&M while doing a bit of 'browsing' and as soon as I spotted it - I knew it had to be mine. I picked up a size Medium as it has a fairly relaxed fit and the Large looked a little too baggy. Needless to say, I feel like I made the right choice. It's so hard being... um. 'bigger busted,' and trying to find the perfect jumper - everything ends up making you look very 'block-y' and just generally unflattering, so I love that this has the flowy-ness that I like yet you still see my shape. 

I'm not one for getting all exposed as soon as the sun comes out and I do like to cover my arms as a general rule - so this is the perfect 'throw on & go' piece for me. I tested it out on a fairly sunny day and it was so comfortable and airy, I can see it becoming a Summer favourite. Which I'm sure is an odd thing to say about a jumper, but this is the UK after all. You never know when the clouds are coming and the heavens are gonna open!

I think this would look cute with jeans, even over the top of a dress or loosely tucked into a skirt (look at me, pretending I have any sense of style) and being monochrome, it can just about go with anything. It's love.

... I can't really believe I've managed to just type all that about one jumper. What can I say!?

Typically I cannot for the life of me find a link to it online (the H&M website really is terrible), but it was near the front of the store so I assume it was fairly new stock and should be in your local H&M - so sorry! But here are a few other, cheap & cheerful H&M fine knit jumpers under £15 - link, link & link

Do you wear jumpers in Summer?

  4. It's gorgeous! I know what you mean about being bigger busted and finding flattering jumpers, Zara's knitwear hates me! Plus when I mention this to people, they stare, assess and then proclaim that I'm not even that busty. So I get all the trauma of the blouse button gap and unflattering knitwear and no benefits! Haha xxx

  8. Its looks really lovely :) (as do you of course). Summer can be a funny one to dress for but this jumper looks like a really good solution to the hot day v. desire to cover up issue I regularly encounter. I haven't been in HnM for a while, I'll have to check it out now! x
