Knitted cover

outfit: Knit - Zara / Jeans - Topshop (Joni) / Bag - Zara / Ankle boots - ASOS

Hello everyone,

fianlly got a new outfit for you guys! I had this one waiting to be edited for so long now and I finally got around to it. It's been a mad couple of weeks, but everything seems to fall into place again, which is good! 

Enough of the small talk, let's talk outfit! Now here's the deal when it comes to cold weather it's a bit more tricky to look put together as you can't just wear a cute little crop top and a pair of jeans and go. I mean don't get me wrong some people can take the cold very well and if you're one of them then lucky you! For most of us however that is not the case. That does not mean that you can't bring out that fashionista in you with a couple more layers's a few tips I make sure I do to still look nice:

1. One thing I always have to take care of with sweaters, knits and tops in general is making sure that they don't basically eat me and that they're not ridiculously long as I'm quite short. Oversized is always a good idea, but you don't want to overdo it!

2. I also like to pair my oversized huge knits with something more flattering around the bottom like I have done in this outfit! That just allows the pieces to compliment each other and your outfit will probably make more sense.

3. When you wear a huge jumper it's the perfect chance for you to layer underneath as it won't really show through. I sometimes wear 4 layers depending on how thin my knit is, I know that sounds insane, but a girl has got to pull emergency strings sometimes! Your layers underneath don't have to be crazy, crop tops are very practical in these situations as they're not baggy or anything. Now if you cannot take the cold at all uniqlo sells some heat tech bodies, which are amazing and you can layer on top of those as well!

4. Finally just remember that winter knits can be just as flattering as your summer outfits as long as your work with what you've got!

Btw this is probably one of my most loved jumpers ever. It's so so warm, but really chic at the same time. It's also just very easy to wear as you don't have to wear anything else with it in terms of jewellery and stuff it just speaks for itself.

How do you guys keep warm? Let me know,
