WHAT I WORE: RUGGED UP FOR WINTER

Well winter is almost here in Canberra (it arrives in less than a week in fact).

The knitwear is out of storage, my coat rack and cupboard has been rearranged, and I’m slowly starting to come up with some creative outfit ideas for the cold months ahead.

I’ve always loved dressing for winter.

Whilst I’m a summer baby at heart, winter really is the time of year where I feel that I am able to truly show my personal style.

From wearing chunky knits with skinny jeans, summer dresses with stockings and ankle boots, and statement coats, blazers and accessories – the options really are endless at this time of year.

Today’s What I Wore post is brought to you by the chunkiest and most comfiest knit which will have me rugged up for winter!

This is a beautiful piece that I recently found on asos late one night when I was online shopping and panicking that I didn’t have any warm knits to wear for winter (first world problems yes I know).

This is a Vera Moda High Neck Oversized Jumper, and it’s going to be the jumper of your dreams this winter as we move into hibernation season.

Imagine yourself being able to lounge around at home wearing this snuggly piece, and then being able to just slip on a pair of jeans and wear it out and about too!

This jumper features a high neck, raglan sleeves, ribbed trimming and an oversized fit which is designed to look baggy.

Can I also just add that Vera Moda is a great brand for Scandi-cool and relaxed pieces.

For this particular look, I’ve tightened the knit in at the waist with a cute belt which adds some shape to the look as well.

Now I need to speak to you about these Country Road jeans.

They are dual tone step hem jeans, and are an absolute STAPLE in my wardrobe at the moment.

Cut in a skinny fit, they feature a seam that runs through the centre front and back of the jeans with a dual tone effect.

Finished with a step hem frayed hem, they provide plenty of stretch and comfort. You’ll see me wearing these over and over throughout autumn, winter and spring!

And the sleek shoes? Well they are a super comfy pair from Hush Puppies!

Crafted from super soft leather, these modern mules combine the comfort of a low heel with the ease of a slide.

With a minimalistic design, plush comfort and a flexible sole, they make for an effortless style statement.

Get the look!
