RETRO JUMPERS

SIMONE BENNETT    Book Number: 90139    Product format: Hardback

Get ready to twist and shout with this colourful 'lookbook' which shows you how to wear clothes - specifically, retro jumpers. This book promises that it will help you say, 'I found this outfit in the trash, but I'm making it work with this hat'. For the sassy dresser, this book offers a collection of ensembles inspired by looks from across the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s when 'fashion was fun, music was great'. Compile a look that emulates Cindy Lauper and Madonna in a black and white bat-wing sweater which could be paired with an edgy corset, fishnets and black lace skirt. If feeling nervous, discover how you can sew a 'companion sock' into the sleeve of a sweater to have a friendly sock puppet alongside you. Fashion is your secret weapon to dazzle a CEO with a sweater which features an explosion of sequins or patterns which, partnered with a sassy belt and pencil skirt produces a 'formidable silhouette'. This stunning collection of looks offers a jumper style for every occasion, such as kitsch jumpers to be worn on the ski slopes, branded pieces which are the ultimate workout attire and the best way to 'werk' that Christmas jumper your nan sent you three years ago. The book also includes a list of suggested locations where the intrigued fashionista could collect their own jumper, whether from a second hand shop, old people, garage sales, lovers, the internet and knitting your own. If a novice retro jumper wearer, the guide will also provide hot tips for sourcing your latest statement piece: remember to check the fabric for stains, lice or cigarette burns, rely on the guidance of an honest friend to tell you if the jumper is no hope, and find mothballs to avoid holes in the clothes while employing potpourri to cover the mothball smell. Every street, corridor or living room will be your catwalk with this imaginative and fun guide. Remember, the 80s look is back! sections on Christmas jumpers, charity shop tips, fortune-telling with wool and more. Each double-page spread features one jumper accessorised with ridiculous props on backgrounds including ski chalets, beaches, libraries and more. 6.9" x 7.4", colour photos, 158pp.
