Just wanted some advice from you fashionistas.
Basically, i live in jeans. Jeans jeans jeans jeans jeans and trainers. In an attempt to break out of the mold i bought a dress very similar to this the other day.
I'm going to wear it with thick black tights (or coloured possibly) and pumps or boots. But what sort of jacket should i wear? It doesn't look right with my winter coat, but it's far too cold atm to wear just that. So has anyone got any suggestions for cheap-ish (the cheaper the better) jackets/cardigans/coats that would keep me warm whilst wearing it.
I'm a large-ish girl (size 16) with big boobs, dunno if that makes any difference but thought that maybe it might. I've also got short spiky dark brown/plum coloured hair.
Ta in advance.
Have you tried wearing a long sleeved top underneath it? It depends on what your jumper dress is like though, as to whether a long sleeved top would work. Jumoer dresses are hard to get a jacket to go with them, as they can often be bulky which is why wearing something underneath is usually your best bet.
It's actually really nice if you wear a bright blue long sleeved top underneath and bright blue tights!
Ooooh good idea thanks. The thought of wearing something underneath the dress hadn't even crossed my mind.
Looks like i'm going to the shops to see if i can find owt tomo. Ta
I usually wear my jumper dresses with a tailored coat. I have a smartish winter coat that goes well, or like a simple mac.
You could try one of those long belted cardigans?
I wear an american apparel bodysuit under jumper dresses (the ones which are leggings and a top), they look good because the colours are bright and they keep you warm and you don't worry about the knit being a bit see through either. That way you don't worry about not having a smooth line under the dress like would happen with a top or tights under it.
zara and other places like that have cardigans on offer right now, that would go well with it. and definitely black tights, i wouldn't do colour if i was you. A nice patent black or red belt would look fab around your waist with that. As for jacket - try and find a cardi that is thick enough to wear with one of your jackets if the coat doesn't go. i wouldn't bother buying a whole new jacket just for one dress. cardis are great though, you can wear all you summer tops in winter and just layer the cardi over the top, so it's a good investment. H&M had/has some nice thick winter ones.
