Autumn Knitwear : Red Jumper Chronicles

Red Knitted Jumper Autumn Fashion 2017

You may, or not, have noticed the amount of red knitwear currently surfacing in the high street Autumn/Winter collections, it’s a huge trend at the moment and certainly one worth getting involved in.

When I think of Red knitwear Charlie Bucket in the original (and best) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory film springs to mind!
Not exactly the most Insta-worthy look.. or so we thought.
Turns out Bucket knew a thing or two and His red fisherman knit jumper is one of the most recent high street trends and I can’t get enough of it!

I’ll have 2 Wonka Bars and a Scrumdiddlyumptious please!

This new red trend is so refreshing, for the past 5 years or so the minute the weather got a bit chilly everyone was suddenly wearing burgundy everything.

For me, Burgundy has become the young person’s beige.. it’s a nice colour, but boring as hell and I can only handle it in small doses.

The current red trend favours bright tomato tones, it has a really subtle hint of orange which I think helps to brighten skin tone a tad. It just generally makes every outfit look more interesting and hopefully more of a talking point.

I have always loved red, but for some reason thought it was a difficult colour to wear.. perhaps if it’s a PVC skirt it is.
But in the form of simple knitwear it certainly isn’t. It’s an effortless way to update your outfit.

I fell prey to this Pimkie number that I found on ASOS . At £16.99 I consider this to be an absolute steal. I didn’t want to splurge on anything this colour just incase I regretted it, I just wanted to briefly dip my toe into the red, wooly sea.

I have combined this jumper with endless outfits and I havent yet come across anything that it doesn’t work with.

It’s slightly cropped at the front and longer at the back, so if you’re bum conscious but also appreciate a high-waisted trouser or skirt then it’s ideal. I would usually buy a size SMALL, but I wanted something with a slightly looser casual feel that I could tuck in or roll the sleeves up on, so I went for MEDIUM and I am so glad I did.

For some reason a slightly oversized jumper is easier to wear and looks a bit more classy.

The main reason I think this jumper works so well is because it is so plain. A simple neckline which is flattering ( crucial if you have a big chest) and knitted in a plain Fisherman style.

The only thing about it that makes a big statement is the colour!
