Recently I have been trying to add some more vintage to my winter wardrobe which is no easy task as most of my vintage finds are summer dresses and skirts. As much as I love vintage I prefer not to look as though I’ve just stepped out of a time machine (although how cool would that be?!) so I tend to look for piece that can be mixed and matched with various items already in my wardrobe.
After the Yorkshire Blogger’s Lunch on the 28th we popped into a vintage kilo sale going on at Trinity Church in Leeds centre and I found a cute little vintage jumper that would slot into my wardrobe perfectly. I wasn’t 100% sure it would fit me and didn’t want to try it on but figured for the price ~ just £5 ~ I could always alter the sizing if needs be.
The unusual neckline is what originally drew me but the check design and neutral colour sealed the deal. This is a piece I can pull out season after season without feeling out of style. Plus the drawn in waist and long cuffs mean I can dress it up or down depending on my plans for the day. Here I’ve styled it with a simple pair of high-waisted jeans and my vintage callot. Easy but effective.
