Summer holidays in the UK don’t necessarily equal summer dresses and swimming costumes. The English coast can be pretty chilly even when the sun’s out and it can be hard to find the right outfit without looking like I’m ready for Winter. This lattice style jumper caught my eye as the perfect item for summertime at the beach. The jumper itself isn’t too thick so is just right for blocking out a chilly sea breeze. Also, the lattice design is more of a summery style which stops the jumper looking like it’s been made for when the weather really does become cold.
Aside from being a beach essential, I really do wear this jumper a lot. The grey and cream colours are pretty together and it works really well as a casual summer evening staple. I like that the sleeves are a little bit long for me as it gives the jumper a cosy feel and the loose fit is ideal for the summer. I love it because it’s just a completely different texture from all my winter woolies.
Here, I’ve paired the jumper (from Pull&Bear) with cream shorts from Forever 21 and a pair of wedges, also from Pull&Bear. The jumper and shoes match perfectly with a pair of jeans as well, but the shorts combination is ideal for the beach (although with flip flops or sandals, not wedges!)
The jumper’s material is really comfy and I really like the style of the baggy sleeves. This style means that there’s plenty of room for layers underneath, which is especially helpful for a day out at the beach. In short, this is a really useful item if you have no idea what the weather is going to do next or if you need to subtly layer up.
If you’ve still got a trip to the seaside planned this Summer, then a beach jumper is definitely a must. Pull&Bear have a great range of loose fitting jumpers at the moment that would do just the trick. Most jumpers work well for the Autumn and Winter too, so there’s no need to pack them away once Summer is over. With a pair of shorts and summery shoes, a jumper like this can definitely become a seaside essential.
