The Multi-tasking Jersey Jumpsuit & Linen Cardigan

This month, for my Pure Collection outfit I chose a jersey jumpsuit and linen cardigan. I have wanted to add a jumpsuit to my capsule wardrobe for some time and thought this one would be a great choice. Firstly because it is navy and will go with any other colours in my wardrobe and secondly because, being jersey, it is comfortable to wear and easy to care for. It also has the added benefit of the crossover top (great for a fuller bust) and gentle gathers that conceal a tummy. The jersey is a lovely weight too, it drapes beautifully, doesn’t sag (I wore it all day and on into the evening for dinner and a concert) and isn’t at all see-through.

The linen cardigan is incredibly soft and despite being fine, quite cosy too. The length hits just at my knee (I’m 5′ 6″) which makes it good over trousers and dresses. It’s one of those wardrobe staples you can throw on over anything and you wonder how you managed without it. I’ve worn the two items together and separately.

Below I’ve styled the jumpsuit for day and evening.

    I just looked at the jumpsuit and it’s a 9 week wait for delivery! Expected 25 July

      Oh no! If you don’t want it for something specific it would be worth ordering as you could wear it right in to the Autumn with a cardigan or jacket.
