With a black pullover and ten rows of pearls she revolutionized fashion.At the beginning of the 20th Century, Coco Chanel was selling masculine style jumpers for women. We can only imagine how strange and outrageous that was, since we all know women were still wearing corsets and carefully embellished dresses. But that didn't stop Chanel from celebrating simplicity and creating comfortable elegant clothes. By the 1920's the jumper was a hit! Everyone was wearing it and by the 1930's knitted jumpers were even accepted as evening wear.
Christian Dior about Coco Chanel
The knit jumper I'm wearing is from Pull&Bear. It's actually 3 sizes bigger than my size. I thought it will look cool as an oversize jumper, whether I chose to wear it with a pencil skirt, skinny jeans or baggy pants.
