Back With A Jump

I’ve always thought of jumper dresses as something mums wear at home on the weekends; Not something I would personally choose to wear, especially for an evening occasion.


But Behold!


A new species of jumper dresses have emerged! All I am seeing at the moment when online shopping is ‘jersey dresses’, ‘cotton dresses’, ‘woollen dresses’, ‘knitted dresses’ (the list goes on), and I have been surprised at how a few changes to a simple item can make such a huge difference. Designers such as Isabel Marant have shown us their AW13 takes on the reputable ‘dull’ dress, converting them into the new ‘IT’ dress by adding sheer materials or developing different cuts. The high street have been quick on the trend, producing the new generation of these dresses that I’m sure are going to be one of the main features of London Fashion Week starting Friday.  


I found this particular one at French Connection; the ‘Dotty Ditton Jersey Dress’. The sheer polka dot sleeves add a feminine elegance, allowing the dress to be adapted easily through day to night. I paired it with simple black heels and an oversized, brightly coloured clutch bag. Adding a thin belt also cinches in the waist, creating more shape. To wear this dress during the day, simply pair with trainers or boots and a shoulder bag. It couldn’t be simpler!
