What do you get when you cross a sheep and a kangaroo?...

Recently I've become totally obsessed with jumpers, is probably something to do with the fact I still have an addiction to shopping yet have banned myself from buying clothes that will be impractical for living in the freezing North East!!


So here are a collection of my favourite jumpers around at the minute


Cutest:

ASOS 
I've bought this one! Couldn't resist the sweet owl and I can't think of anything in my wardrobe it won't go with, especially the pair of maroon jeans I'm saving up for.
I have to say though, it is in competition with this adorable one; look at the hedgehogs!! All together now- "Awwww"



Snuggliest:


River Island and Boohoo


These will definitely keep you cosy. Would look cool slouchy with a bodycon black mini skirt and black tights, but also with skinny jeans and boots I reckon.




Most basic yet cool:

Boohoo
Also in competition for the snuggliest.




Most retro:

River Island
I absolutely love this navajo print, reminds me of the mittens and leg-warmers my mom had kept from the 80s (yes, she really is that much of a hoarder!). Yet it still has the warmth to it, with the colour and the Native American origins of the print, that steers it clear of looking like an item from George Michael's old wardrobe.



Best for budget:

Tesco 
Not bad for £16, eh?! Looks like it could be pretty thick as well, which is good, and that print is cute. I love it on its own but I could also imagine it with a shirt underneath so the collar's visible, a little bit geek-style!

Most impractical:

Republic
I have got to stop myself from buying this. So not very warm with the thinness and cropped style!! ...it is gorgeous though...just look at the pretty purple colour and the cute birds...!



Scariest:

ASOS 
Its really really cool but oh my gosh that owl is actually terrifying! It looks so evil. I'll stick to my cute one, thanks!



Best twist on Dennis the Menace:

Boohoo
Is it possible to dress like a child's cartoon character and look cool? It would appear so! Slouchy and with sequin detail, this is so cool.


One for a night out:

ASOS (I prefer it in 'rust' though)
I would never ever have thought about wearing knitwear on a night out but the way the model looks on the catwalk I'm nearly convinced!! Unfortunately the reality is nightclubs tend to be ridiculously warm and that is super short, but if anyone's having a dressy bonfire party it would look great with tights and heels I guess??






Star-quality:

ASOS
I find this jumper so cool because I love elbow patches but this is so unique with it, yet the rest of the jumper is kept really simple, such a great result. Looks quite preppy I reckon.


And while we're on knitwear...
I want this so much! Will never be able to afford it full price though :(

So what do you think? Which one of these jumpers do you like best? Found any more awesome ones? Post me a link, I do love my online shopping!!!
Hope you're all well. Back to school/college/uni now?? Hope its going good.

Ps. The answer to the joke in title is 'a wooly jumper'! (as if you didn't already know). I've since also heard an answer is 'a sweater with big pockets', but that is nowhere near as good as the proper answer I think!!

I'm also so into jumpers right now! Now that it's (almost) spring i'll try to buy a couple because they look amazing with anything: skirts, dresses, jeans, shorts, etc.
