Blue is a colour which I never used to be drawn to, but clearly that has changed! This outfit, which I wore at the weekend, is entirely blue – I love this shirt from Primark (another great Primark piece which doesn’t look like it’s from Primark!), slightly cropped and tailored dark navy trousers from JW Anderson’s first collection for Topshop (which I got in the sale for £20), my super cosy vintage jumper from Retrograde* and of course my super cute Liberty print Free Run 2s, which were a birthday present from my boyfriend last year. You might remember I worked with Retrograde a while ago as a model, but the brand is still going strong and acquiring more and more great men’s and women’s vintage stock (including more cosy knitwear like this jumper) at totally reasonable prices, and with free UK delivery which is always a selling point for me – Topshop online would have a lot more of my money if they didn’t charge £4!
Although this ‘electric yellow’ jumper, courtesy of Glamorous UK, is not for those who want a subtle way to incorporate the neon trend in their outfits, I think it is the perfect statement piece for the trend and is ideal for those all too frequent spring and summer days where the sun doesn’t shine in England!
Click here to view and purchase the jumper at Glamorous UK, a bargain at only £17.99, but please be warned that it is much brighter in person than it appears on the photo on the website!
Here I’ve paired the jumper with a vintage black velvet shirt underneath so that the collar is visible, navy blue American Apparel disco pants as an alternative to an all black look, Liberty print Nike Air Max 1 trainers from their recent collaborative collection, an Alexander McQueen-esque skull print scarf from Primark and my trusty Topshop black leather biker to tie the look together.
I also tried this look with a less casual shoe: a nude and neon lace-up flat from H&M, which combination do you prefer?
