Orange Rib Geometric Jumper at River Island • Pick of the Week

river island: orange rib geometric pattern cropped jumper, £25 (buy here)
Most of you will be confused as to why I'm writing about a jumper at the beginning of July, but as you may already know, I am a huge fan of knitted jumpers and here in England we are currently getting a few days of glorious sunshine, followed by a fairly miserable day or two, therefore for a lot of us in the UK, jumpers aren't always ruled out during the summer months.

I'm lovin' vibrant coloured knits at the moment (which you probably noticed in my previous haul here) because they add colour to any rainy day as well as making a statement and this orange crop jumper (buy here) from River Island is perfect for just that. Team this jumper with a pair of simple jeans (light, medium or dark wash, it's your choice but I'd go for a medium wash such as these), a pair of an ankle boots for a cosier, laid back look or some leather loafers for a smarter look. To finish the look, add a bold nail polish such as a neon peach or yellow for an snazzy contrast in colours.

Personally, I think £25 for a jumper is a bargain compared to Topshop, and unlike Primark, River Island jumpers are great quality and  will therefore last a lot longer - completely worth the money. Is it just me, or do you also feel like you buy wintery items in the summer and summery items in the winter? I guess it doesn't matter though, as at some point they will get worn (that's my way of justifying such purchases).

River Island have these jumper in a huge range of colours, including bright red, canary yellow and pastel blue which can all be found here.

  1. I was actually looking at a jumper very similar this morning, I love the pattern on this - makes it a little unusual. No, I'm exactly the same! In the summer months I'm desperate for the autumn stock to come into shops so I can wrap up warm and then in the winter, all I want to do is run around in summer dresses (which would probably land you with hypothermia in England), haha! : )
