For a smart but casual outfit for my work experience at Absolute Radio i’ve opted for what was my christmas present to myself, a maroon jumper complete with a fresh white shirt attached, from ASOS.
I then chose to wear my jeans courtesy of Topshop, an acid wash pair from the Leigh range. They provide a snug fit, despite the soft and comfortable material.
I then partnered the outfit with my new bag from River Island, you’ve gotta love an updated wardrobe after christmas! The bag is ideal, as when commuting up to London i’m not nearly knocking people out with an inconsiderate monstrosity on my back, that us short legged people hate on escalators! But this bag is spacious enough to fit in all my essentials and the contrast of black and gold makes it eye catching, adding style to any outfit.
Here is the studded shoulder of my favourite Topshop Jumper from Autumn / Winter 2012. I have dragged it back out for another season, its so warm, totally oversized and snuggly – despite the studs!
I have been rocking this look with skinny black jeans (ASOS) and black suede boots (Hoads), I chucked my pleather jacket (H&M) on to battle the cold and wacked out the dry shampoo (Batiste) and top knot.

I don’t think i am necessarily known for my budgeting, most probably due to the size of my shoe collection, however now the uni term has started the realities of paying rent, bills and on top of that the food shop have meant i’m doing my best to curb any excessive expenditure.
Being as i’m studying journalism i put magazine purchases under ‘course materials’ in my budget, so i have been keeping up with the autumn / winter trends. I have mentioned in previous posts that the oversized jumper is here to stay. Personally i think it is just the fashion industry realising last winter was just too cold and went on way too long, so have given us the oversized jumper for this season.
One of the big colours on the catwalks for autumn / winter 2013 was burgundy, the rich wine colour can immediately give your look a winter appeal. So i thought why not combine these two trends into one with my last purchase before i left for uni.
This burgundy jumper with shoulder patches is actually a men’s jumper, but for £16.00 from F&F Tesco’s i couldn’t resist the size small (just roll the sleeves up and you are good to go). The brown suede patches on the shoulders, differs from the usual elbow patch style seen on many knits last year. Unfortunately for me this jumper is now in the sale at £12.00, but on the upside it does also come in a rather nice navy blue.
Have you got any bargains recently or found something you love in the men’s section? Leave a comment and let us know or Tweet us @thesarahsblog
