Styling men's jumpers

First of all, I'd like to apologise for the fact that there was no new blog post last week, this was due to me changing courses at uni so having a fair bit of work to catch up on as well as not actually having a laptop for a few days since my charger broke. I am back, however, and have been getting stuck back into using my camera since I am now doing a BA in photography which I am really enjoying and it is proving to be a much better course for me than fashion. This means that I now run another Instagram account and website, dedicated to my photography work which you can follow if you wish!

Anyway, updates aside, I was a runner-up a competition about a month ago from sharing my charity shop finds on social media and won £20 to put towards charity shopping, so hit the streets of Huddersfield to find some bargains. The first find was this men's jumper and I loved how traditional the style of it is, I also was really keen to write something about styling men's jumpers because they can be found so easily in charity shops and at such amazing prices. I also generally like jumpers with a more boxy fit, so men's jumpers are perfect if you like an oversized fit too.

Jumper | Charity Shop
Skirt | eBay 
Jacket | H&M
Beret | Old Next
Bag | Beara Beara
Necklace | Tynemouth Market
Rings | Ben the Spoonman
Earrings | Vintage
Boots | Charity Shop

I styled the jumper with a checked skirt, which I got for £2 on eBay! Tartan/ checks are everywhere this season and I loved how Twiggy/ 60s this one looks, it is also such a great fit, and for £2 was an amazing find. As the skirt is fairly fitted, a slightly oversized jumper such as this one works really well tucked in for a more laid-back, casual look. I obviously paired the look with my beloved fishnet tights and fluffy jacket which has been featured on my blog pretty much weekly since I bought it. 

For accessories, I went with my favourite Beara Beara bag, which is such a handy size for everyday and is in keeping with the more vintage vibes of the outfit. As I have mentioned before, I don't often wear much jewellery, however, I did find some amazing pieces at Tynemouth Market the weekend before I moved for uni, including the necklace I am wearing in this post. It reminded me of the severed hand pieces by Alexa Chung but for £1, rather than £200; it is such a quirky piece and I am still in awe of how affordable it was. The beret is from Next a few years ago and matches really well with the colour of the jumper; I love how they look together! My boots could be easily mistaken for Dr Martens but were from New Look and an amazing charity shop find, they only cost me £4.50 and were pretty much brand new.
