I've been looking for jumpers lately and noticed a lot of them are modelled with shirts underneath. I used to wear that kind of thing a lot back when I worked in an office and it always suited me due to my body shape (kind of appley - big shoulders and boobs).
It's not something I've ever thought about wearing in a non work way (am currently a SAHM). I just wondered if I could get away with it these day though? Or will people keep asking if I've gone back to work?
Looks at watch. Dear god, is it 1978 already. I thought we were still busy reviving the 80s. I dunno, second, I have no pretensions to fashionableness, but I have some photos of me wearing that kind of combo in the late 70s.
Does it really matter if you like it? Stop worrying what everyone else thinks.
It's fashionable to wear clothes you enjoy. Half the fashion magazines (ok ok, so I only read one... Elle) have all the trends in but then all the interviews are people saying don't follow trends, I just wear what I like. So I decided last year (age 21) that that is the attitude I will now adopt permanently.
Sorry, but to me that isn't anything related to style or fashion - that is what you would put on when you have run out of school uniform!
I don't have particularly high standards since having children ('Let me find something to cover my nakedness' is my starting point for getting dressed on a casual day) but the looks on those links are very, very basic.
Oh, why not try a teeshirt and cardigan? That might look stylish.
but to answer your question properly... yes I have seen it a fair bit too. Not in person yet but I have only just started seeing pics. I give it a month before it's everywhere. Remember we have only just hit Autumn and a lot of people are still clinging on to whatever summer they can scrape together.
It wasn't meant to be passive aggressive. I have suffered for three years with social phobias/anxieties and have just started letting go of my fear of what others think and was trying to encourage you not to care as you clearly like it...
