Retro jumpers

This very real and important lookbook will show you how to wear clothes — specifically, retro jumpers. Turn that vintage find into a sassy ensemble that says, “I found this outfit in the trash, but I’m making it work with this hat.”

As a retro fashionista, Simone Bennett fossicks and scrounges for all sorts of vintage items — but her passion is sweaters. There are many names for these long-sleeved garments that bring us so much joy: jumpers, pullovers, woolly body-huggers. If there were no sweaters, then where would we be? Cold, topless and depressed, with no way to express our love of retro style.

Retro Jumpers showcases a collection of ensembles inspired by the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s when frankly, everything was better. Fashion was fun, music was great and women knew their place.

Fashion sense is something you’re born with. Knowing which sassy knit goes with what fancy hat is something that should come naturally. But through diligent study, you can probably learn.

The knowledge you gain from this book will not only help you look interesting and attractive, but will help you be a better human and achieve your dreams. You’ll instantly see the results in all areas of your life, from the boardroom to the bedroom.
