There’s something quite magical about finding the perfect jumper dress for you. Just like finding the perfect anything for yourself, it effortlessly boosts your confidence, flatters your body and looks fabulous. There’s such an overwhelming array of jumper dress options, that it’s easy to just stick with the more popular styles. But patience and understanding your personal style makes all the difference to your choices.
Having had jumper dresses before like the one I created and styled in Making a jumper dress, I realised quickly that the standard short dress versions weren’t my all time favourites. This is why I then restyled that same jumper dress with jeans in The power of style. Because as I mentioned in understanding your personal style, if you love a piece enough, you can find a way to style it to suits your tastes best.
FINDING THE ONE
So when I came across this asymmetric jumper dress, I knew it was the one. On trying it on, I immediately felt fabulous, beautiful and dare I say sexy. It’s one off-the-shoulder style shows just enough skin, while the sheer skirt detail is the ultimate feminine touch. The knitwear part of the dress is thick enough to keep you warm on chilly days therefore you wouldn’t have to cover the look with a coat. While it is still light enough that it’s perfect for spring. The mix of textures in one item also fills me with joy as it takes the work out of how to wear multiple textures in one outfit.
This jumper dress, although very much a statement, is versatile and comfortable. For this look I added a waist belt to the knitted fabric to define my silhouette. This style works well for Sunday brunch, date night or a less formal event. For a casual twist, you can style the jumper dress with boots and create a draped look with a belt. You’ll just know when you find the perfect jumper dress for you because you’ll want to style it every which way and it’ll let you.
