How I Style The Roll Neck | Part 1


Roll Neck Jumper - New Look
Tartan Skirt - New Look
Snake Print Shirt - Vintage
Boots - Dr Martens
Backpack - Primark (Old)
Fedora - H&M

Looking for the perfect roll neck jumper has been an absolute mission.  They're either not oversized enough, the wrong shape, the wrong colour... The list goes on.  To be honest, my visions of the perfect roll neck look nothing like this cosy treat from New Look, but I couldn't say no to this little guy.  Not when his price tag showed a measly tenner.  Annnddd, thank you Black Friday.

I basically just threw the shirt on underneath, as I don't like the way that the jumper sits on the skirt, and wanted something to break the two up.  The shirt kind of adds something extra, rather than just your basic skirt/jumper combo.

Just to try and keep things on the casj side, on went the oldest, most battered, and most loved docs, dug out from the deepest depths of the crappy wardrobe that came with my crappy student house.  Man, I hate that thing.  You should see the mountainous pile of 73 pairs of shoes that collapses everywhere, whenever I decide to brave opening the door.  Can't hack it.

  18. Great outfit (as always!! haha!). I love how you styled the roll/cowel neck. I am a fan of these cuts of sweater but I always feel that if it's not styled properly it can look a bit "old-fashioned". I'm off to find my tights and my army boots to recreate your awesome look!

    Much Love,
