Enter cricket pun here!

The mission was as follows: go to Waitrose via H&M and see if anything good was in stock. I did a quick rotation round the store and just before I gave up spied this jumper slumped in a corner, waiting to be merchandised.

Chunky knit. Low v-neck front to reduce frump factor. Total Rag & Bone rip off. Reminds me of home (Sussex!) with the whole cricket theme.





Sold.

This is my jumper of choice for casual trips out and dog-walking activities late at night. In fact I am wearing it right now while slumped over the laptop.

Maybe it's because the white wool contrasts nicely with a (fake) tan or maybe it's because the collegiate style theme makes me feel young(er) but either way I am loving it.

Having said that I think this may possibly look frumpy so I need to adopt some mitigating steps:

a) Skinny jeans are a must. This is pretty voluminous - I got the medium - so it needs to be contrasted with something tight on the bottom.

b) Don't put any layers underneath the jumper itself to ensure that the low v-neck does its work. A good bra also helps. That sounds a bit slaggy but eh....it's the truth!

I am almost certainly late on this particular bandwagon. ASOS has one, Boohoo has one and Warehouse also has a version on this. I can't speak about the fit/feel of those but what I can say is that the H&M one is fantastic and I am peer pressuring you all to go and get one :) Link!

  2. I have been eyeing those jumpers for some time, but am hesitant to buy something white at the moment, as my daughter is usually covering everything around her with carrots at the moment.
    It looks lovely on you though.

  7. I think that jumper looks amazing on you. But I feel like it would make me look like a marshmallow with how wide it is at the bottom

  11. Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I don't find it flattering at all and you have a lovely figure. Just not my cup of tea.

  12. I'm actually really liking the long v-neck line. It pulls the eye to all the right areas of the bust and yet leaves enough to the imagination. I like the blue and white contrast on this as well. Nice one. :)

  14. I love this sweater! Unfortunately, H&M USA doesn't seem to offer it yet, and that makes me sad.

  15. I love the deep v, which looks great with your tan Laura. I would have bought it one size down as the volume at the bottom seems a little too much. The shapeI would have gone for is on the model on the H&M website!

  16. It's so pretty! I probably would just ignore it in the store not even realizing how nice it looks once on. :)

  24. I bought this online without knowing it was already oversized and I bought my regular size because I need bust room... well it's super huge on me but too cute to not wear it around the house. Hoping to find a much smaller size in store soon.

  25. Love the shape of the sweater. The V is deep, but the construction of it is done in a way that it's not too sexy.
