This post is one that I have been meaning to sit down and write for the longest time now, forgive me for my slacking with blogging lately; university is getting the better of me!
I was recently contacted by clothing brand Femme Luxury, who very kindly gifted me a selection of beautiful knitwear garments – which being a knit student, of course I jumped at the chance to work with them! If you weren’t familiar, Femme Luxe is a women’s online fashion brand, with a current, classy and forward thinking approach to fashion. In today’s post I’ll just be focussing on their knitwear selection, perfect seeing as the cold weather is now in full swing – I’m not happy about this, but new knitwear is making it more bearable!
Before Femme Luxe had contacted me, I had seen them crop up on my Instagram the odd few times, so I have had a gander at their products prior to me working with them. I was dubious though, as I tend to shop at the same shops all the time, a bad habit as I really should start trying new things out – I’m a girl who hates change, incase you hadn’t noticed! But Femme Luxe did not disappoint, and I will definitely be placing an order of my own at some point.
Quality is always a big thing for me, being a fashion student too, I’m always the first to jump on garments if they aren’t up to standard. The quality of the garments I received are all so amazing – for the price as well, you really can’t go wrong. Knitwear can often be an irritant on my skin and cause an eczema flare up, therefore I always struggle to find jumpers I can wear, however the jumpers I picked from Femme Luxe are incredibly soft on the skin and not irritating at all…hallelujah!!!
I had great fun playing dress up with my garments when they arrived, doing a bit of outfit planning, so here’s what I’ve gone for and how I’ve styled them myself!
We’ll start with my favourite garment of them all, the White Cropped Flare Sleeve Knitted Jumper. I’m an absolute sucker for anything with a bell sleeve, so it was no surprise when this was the first item that landed in my basket! The flared sleeves are giving me all the ABBA vibes, just the flared trousers and I’m ready to be cast in the next Mamma Mia – whats not to like! I paired this jumper with a pair of red cigarette trousers from Missguided, converse and a baker boy hat, I’ve never looked so ‘blogger-esc’ in all my life!
Moving onto this cute little number, the Twist Front Long Sleeve Jumper, even though it is officially jumper season, this is one thats slightly less practical for the cooler weather, but who cares if I’m cold, at least I’ll look good while doing it! This was a pick that was slightly out of my comfort zone, and very different to any other jumper I own, but I absolutely love it – it has such a flattering and feminine cut! I’ve gone very casual with this outfit, pairing it with my favourite Mom jeans, and a pair of suede boots, nice and easy, an outfit you can’t go wrong with!
I’ll do the next 2 jumpers together as they are completely identical, just different colour ways. Again these are both different to anything I own, both very simple jumpers from the front, lovely colour combinations. But the twist is on the back, where it laces up in a v-shape, there’s also some texture added into the back through the use of laddering, and knit students will now how simple yet effective this is, it really does make the jumper. I’ve gone fairly simple in terms of styling both of these, one paired with black skinny jeans and Doc Martens, the other with a pair of black cigarette trousers from Missguided and heeled boots – perfect autumn fashion!
Would it really be a haul if I didn’t pick up something red?? No, no it wouldn’t. This is definitely the least practical of them all, but one that I’ll for sure be reaching for when the weather gets warmer again next year. I’m instantly drawn to anything red, so there was no stopping me when I landed my eyes on this Button Down Red Dress. Very figure flattering and incredibly easy to style, here I have just paired it with a denim jacket and converse. This is a garment that could also be dressed up equally easy – getting night out ready in just a few minutes!
So that concludes my little style blog post for today. Thank you ever so much to Femme Luxe for sending me out some really beautiful garments that I really can’t wait to wear throughout winter – I really recommend all my fellow fashionistas check them out!
