Why am I writing about jumpers and jeans when by the end of this week, there's going to be a heatwave? Good question. For me, I love to plan ahead. I come from a family that likes to whip out the Excel spreadsheet by the end of summer for Christmas dinner (expecting this year's imminently), so it's been ingrained in me for years. This indoctrinated behaviour stretches to my wardrobe, as I like to know what I can bank on wearing come the new season. Right now, that means finding the outfits that will work just as summer's ending and autumn is beginning, aka jeans-and-jumper outfits.
Below, I've collected a few of my favourite looks that will work with any kind of footwear you choose—whether it's still warm and you want sandals or it's already boot weather and you want to cover up. But back to the actual outfits. There's a short-sleeve cardigan–and–blue jeans look that's ideal for those colder summer days. Then there's a stripey jumper–and–black jeans outfit, which, for someone who still loves Nirvana, is the perfect tribute to Kurt Cobain's grunge aesthetic. For late September, however, there's a more minimalistic look in the form of a roll-neck and skinny jeans. Keep scrolling to find the above and more.
