Get in my Wardrobe: Pastel Knitwear

Hey Lovelies!

First things first, now that a big bulk of my uni work has been completed I can now dedicate some more of my time again towards this blog, of course maintaining this blog is part of a module of my uni course but this doesn't quite feel as taxing as 2,500 word essays do! Of course now Christmas is all done and dusted we are now starting to see spring/summer wear arrive in stores, the world of fashion retail is always funny I think, the fact there's winter clothes in the summer ( I always tend to buy my winter coat in August!) and summer in the winter (this is when I usually buy my bikini's!)

As well as seeing bikini's, shorts and pretty floral dresses, I'm seeing a lot of pastel colours especially in the knitwear department. Personally I love pastel colours, I think they just scream 'spring's coming!' I'm always quite guilty of wearing very colourless clothes, black, cream and denim are probably the most popular shades in my wardrobe but I always like to add a splash of colour into my spring/summer wardrobe. Now obviously spring and summer is a long way off yet, but that doesn't mean I can't get into the mood with adding a touch of spring to my winter wardrobe.

I spied these pastel knitwear items on the New Look and Topshop websites and pretty much fell in love with all of them. I recently bought a fuchsia jumper in the Topshop sale and absolutely love the colour and I can soon see one of these maybe making an appearance in my wardrobe. Perfect for accompanying jeans, shorts, dresses and much more, not only are they brilliant for keeping us warm now they're also perfect for summer nights chilling round a BBQ. Of course I am supposed to be on a spending ban but I can't promise anything if either Topshop or New Look offer a 20% student discount offer ;)

What are your thoughts on pastels? Yay or Nay?


  1. I quite like pastels but I would find it a bit difficult to style them, as I like quite versatile pieces. The blue Topshop jumper is lush!
