Thrift Inspiration.....Short Sleeve Chunky Knit Jumper

Hi everyone!! I hope you are all bearing up now the Wintry weather is setting in-apparently we are in for some real icy cold weather over the next couple of weeks so now is the time to dust down those winter knits and get them to the front of your wardrobe.

The majority of my jumpers that I have are all long sleeved, but I do have the odd short sleeve jumper, that being my Sonia Rykiel thrifted jumper that I bought a few years back at the now sadly gone Help The Aged charity shop for only £2.49. It's great to wear over silky blouses, chambray denim or a thermal long sleeve top. Short sleeve jumpers are so versatile and stylish and make a welcome change to the normal long sleeved versions and what I'm liking about the current versions are they are cut like oversized tees, making them perfect for layering and cosying up in. Here are my favourite picks of short sleeve jumpers that are available now:














So I found another short sleeved jumper to add to the wardrobe recently- a lovely hand knitted aran chunky knit which is oversized and cocoon shaped and was a bargainous £4.49 from my local Salvation Army charity shop:


I chose to wear it yesterday with my Uniqlo heattech long sleeved top from last year, my All Saints jeans that I got from the boot sale a few months ago for £3 and my new tan Chelsea boots:


I'll definitely wear this over my light and dark wash chambray shirts in the style of Laura of the WIT blog and with skinny jeans too- it really is a cosy buy and being short sleeved and oversized means I don't get too over-heated and stay snug at the same time.

Do you have any short sleeved jumpers in your wardrobe for this winter- is it a look you could or would try? I do hope you enjoy the rest of your week and stay snug and warm whatever you get up to!

Great look Sharon! I think this is an underrated and underused option for layering. I have 2 jumpers like this from Zara last year and really like the versatility of the look.
Chelsea boots are perfect!

What a sweet jumper, I could probably cope with short sleeves, I hate being all bundled up and restricted in normal woolies! x

The one from French Connection is pretty and yours too. I bought something similar on my last trip to the US yet still not cold enough to sport it here..

Hi Sharon - agree this is a brilliant idea that in fact I first got from an Australian (!) blogger.

I wear skinny polos or crew necked Tees under woolly short-sleeved jumper and tunics all winter. In fact I often wear skinnies under short sleeved summer shifts in winter - try it. Plus leggings and boots of course. (PS - Frock Me on 1st December let me know if you wld like a ticket.)Cx

Love that first Sonia Rykiel! I am huge fan of plaid. Sigh!

Great chic outfit Sharon. Think this is a real winner for these chilly days.

At this time of year layering is a necessity and your cream sweater is such a versatile colour. I love the first Sonia Rykiel one - love the colour combination and pattern.
