I didn’t think it was possible yet my love for knitwear seems to grow stronger each year. In fact, one of my first ever fashion posts on the blog was this article on top knitwear for 2019. Maybe it’s because we’re now in winter in Australia… or perhaps it’s because there’s nothing as comforting as pulling on a warm & soft jumper – except for chocolate, nothing beats chocolate! Knitwear for me is like having someone hug you all day long… someone who is super soft and stylish at the same time.
Finding knitwear from Loveshackfancy
Since last year, I feel like my knitwear game has advanced to the next level. I’ve been making an effort to invest in quality pieces which I’m confident I’ll be wearing year after year. This has meant I’ve also needed to think outside my usual go to shops, when searching for specific items. And I’ve ended up finding what is possibly my most favourite knitwear piece from a label I discovered via Instagram, called Loveshackfancy.
The perfect shade of icy blue!
My second purchase from this American brand is the beautiful Jasmine Pullover in Gossamer blue. It’s the most winter appropriate shade of ice-blue and gives me major Disney Frozen vibes! Featuring a three-dot bud motif detail, it has princess seams with scalloped double ruffles. A relaxed style, it has ribbed cuffs and hem and a round neckline. What I adore the most apart from the colour and design, would have to be the fabric composition. This pretty jumper is partly made of angora which means it’s extra fluffy & soft.
As much as I adore angora, it has to be mentioned that a drawback with this fabric is the annoying shedding. Angora fibers tend to stick to other fabrics, so it’s worth paying attention to what pieces you style it with. I love pairing my knitwear with jeans, however for this knit, the fluff noticeably shows up on black jeans. I’ve decided to match the Jasmine pullover with blue jeans and I think it would also work really well with white jeans, for early springtime when the weather is still cool.
Currently on sale!
One of the positive parts of being in the Southern Hemisphere is that we can often take advantage of sales from the US & UK, purely due to opposite seasons. I picked up the Jasmine pullover from Loveshackfancy recently on sale, and the good news is that it’s still available online in XS & S sizes. It originally retailed for USD$375 and is now available for USD$150! If you love the look of this jumper then I’d recommend you check it out online while there is still some stock available, as this is a pretty great buy if you love knitwear and feminine style.
Jasmine Pullover feels like a silky cloud
Extra care needs to be taken with the Jasmine Pullover which means gentle handwashing. I hand wash as much of my knitwear as possible, as I find this helps to care for and maintain the fabric. Seeing as “buying less but buying better” is fast becoming my sartorial motto, it’s no surprise I have fallen in love with this jumper. Because honestly, who doesn’t want to feel like they’re wrapped up in a silky cloud?!
