Hi everyone! I’m back with an outfit post to share with you. I took these pictures on a sunny evening during my Easter holidays from work. I was drawn to this pink jumper by ASOS petite, with its vivid depiction of a tiger on the front, and clusters of red and white flowers. I’ve never seen anything quite like it, and it definitely stood out to me. Lately, the items of clothing I love seem to feature animal imagery of some kind. You might remember my recent outfit post (Embroidered Swallows and Gem-Encrusted Jeans), which featured a top with a striking bird motif. I wasn’t sure how the petite fit of this particular jumper would turn out on me though, as I normally get my tops in standard sizes. However, I was really pleased that this top did fit me, and the proportions weren’t too small. I was able to get the jumper over my head without feeling strangled, and the sleeves weren’t tiny, so I was happy I could keep it! Luckily I got it half price during the sales, making it a must-buy! As it’s a fine knit rather than a heavy jumper, I’ll definitely get more opportunities to wear it. I wore it several times just in the first week of having it!
Anyway, I wore this pastel shade of pink after many years. I’m not sure why I stopped wearing pink in the first place, other than feeling it somehow looked immature and not ‘grown up’ enough. But these days I just wear the colours I like, rather than sticking to dark tones. I love darker colours too for a more dramatic look sometimes, but I feel bright and vibrant colours suit me more, having a positive effect on my mood.
I styled the tiger jumper with indigo jeans and big twinkly earrings from my jewellery collection, which I don’t get many occasions to wear. I like the shimmer to them and the way they make a more casual daytime outfit suitable for evening. I added my leopard print furry coat, as it still gets cold when the temperature drops in the evening, and my faithful sunglasses with leopard-print frames. As you can see, this outfit includes different prints and various textures, but I think it works well overall, with the pastel pink and neutral shades of the leopard print coordinating, so the different elements don’t clash.
What do you think of this look? How would you style a tiger jumper? Please let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for dropping by, and have a lovely bank holiday weekend. Lots of love Saba xx
TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
