The Wildfox Take 10 Project

Q: How do you style a Wildfox jumper with a big glittery heart on it?

A: Not easily!

I was sent this jumper by Self Service UK as part of their "Take 10 Project" which has an obvious nod to Valentines Day.

I agreed to take part in this because it is a little challenge for me to sport something that I wouldn't typically gravitate towards. I also loved the concept of the project itself.

As the title suggests it involves 10 bloggers, with each blogger receiving the exact same item. The idea is to style and photograph it in a way that stays true to your personal style.  I always think its interesting to see how different an item can look on one person versus another.

I wore this in the only way I could - by prepping it up with a light, sheer shirt and a tweed blazer. This was a combination that toned down the loudness of the jumper and made it feel more wearable.

And you know what I realised when wearing this? People smile at you in shops and on the street. The big glittery heart causes a whole  "good mood" exchange. When you are feeling stressed about how much work you have to do that soon makes the jumper feel pretty special.






Jumper: Wildfox
Shirt: Whistles (old)
Blazer: ASOS - Link! (in the sale :)
Jeans: Current/Elliott
Shoes: Isabel Marant
Bag: Celine
Sunglasses: Celine

Now to the good part - go and see the other bloggers and how they wore the jumper on the Self Service blog - Link! 

You can also vote for my picture as your favourite if you like but there are some AMAZING submissions...

Anyway, how would you style this jumper?

  1. Laura! This is one of my favorites. I love the juxtaposition of something pretty hipster paired with a classic preppy tweed blazer (no longer in my size, alas). Biased, but I like yours the most too. It's the most unexpected for a sweater like that, I think.

  9. Tweed has never been on my radar but I love this outfit (and the earlier one) with this little jacket and I'm almost tempted. It looks like you had fun working this look : ) Love the thought of everyone smiling, doesn't seem to happen much in the UK.

  37. I like the way you've styled it. I'd probably wear it with a chambray shirt underneath so you could see the collar and blue skinny jeans with some nice flat shoes :) I really want a Wildfox jumper!

  40. the answer is-- dont style it. wear it alone with a tank underneath with jeans or black pixie pants and converse and go. jackets and blazers on top and shirts underneath dont work. think of it as a long sleeved tshirt or sweatshirt rather than a jumper. http://instagram.com/p/KTGxqdsUxe/ << see ingrid, the queen of wildfox.
