One jumper, four ways to wear it this weekend

30 July 2018

WORDS BY Fashion Quarterly New Zealand

The humble jumper is no longer a couch companion. Take it outside – to brunch or even a party – with these sartorial solutions.


Time to party

Have a summer frock you feel like wearing this weekend? A simple knit worn underneath your dress will keep you warm – just make sure it looks more like a styling choice than a sheer necessity by choosing a knit colour that will pick up the tone of your gown. If in doubt, white or black are safe options.

Knit, $275, by Camilla and Marc. Bag, $3215, by Jimmy Choo. Dress, $299, by H&M. Boots, $369, by Miss Wilson.


About town

Wearing your jumper over a crisp white shirt adds instant style cred. Pairing this knit with metallic detailing, as seen in this Ziera heel, is an easy way to elevate an otherwise casual look.

Girls’ night

Now’s your chance to really ramp up your ready-to-wear outfit with a bright knit that’s snug but also sexy. It’s all about proportions, team your jumper with a sleek skirt and reasonably tall heels to elongate the ensemble. Of course, a petite Lady Dior bag never goes amiss.
