BDG Slouch Stripe Sweater

Hey dudes. Everyone needs that perfect fall back item of clothing that just solves all comfort dilemmas, right? I found mine recently, in the shape of a great slouchy jumper and, as is often the case with these matters, I wasn't even looking for one. I like to think it found me (it jumpered out at me!)... although this wouldn't be strictly true as I was actually out shopping at the time and therefore in the zone for buying SOMETHING.

I've always been a huge fan of Urban Outfitters but the UK price tag is often a little higher than what I'm comfortable paying. However, I've come across some great items in there recently that weren't too crazily priced, and this BDG brand jumper is one of them. At first glance you may think it isn't anything special. You would be wrong! The width of the stripes, the fine knit, the oversized fit, the drop hem and especially the length are all perfect for me. I LOVE IT. It's the perfect addition to my predominantly casual wardrobe. Here's how I've been wearing it this week.

Here's a tip: if you're going on holiday to the USA, do make a beeline for Urban Outfitters over there as it works out quite a bit cheaper than here. I went nuts in there during my US road trip last autumn, it was amazing! However, I should probably point out that this jumper was bought in Birmingham (West Midlands, not Alabama) which doesn't sound anywhere near as glamourous.

An unfortunate feature of the fine knit: its tendency to pull. As shown here in Exhibit A.

Apologies for the indoor photos in this post. It was raining cats and dogs that particular day. I even managed to catch one:

In hindsight, she wasn't too impressed about it all:

  1. LOVE the sweater and beanie!! i wish i could pull of beanies! haha :)

    1. Thanks! Hats are a necessity to me as I'm overly prone to bad hair days :/

  2. Oh I hate it when that happens to jumpers, I try and pull the thread on itself and into the inside of the jumper so you can't see it. So sad when it happens though!

    1. I know! I've been doing the reversing the thread on itself trick too... but it's a neverending battle :(

  3. Love easy to wear stuff like this! I'd click pull it all over though- so clumsy!! X

    1. I'm pretty clumsy myself.. the jumper is suffering at my hands :s
