Fashion Ideas

By Jenny Itzcovitz, Fashion and Beauty Editor, Sixtyplusurfers

Pastel Pink Jumper from M&Co


        Pastel Pink Jumper from M&Co

February is a transitional month in terms of fashion as we start to see a little more sunshine and the beginnings of spring - not too far away. However, it's still quite cold and frosty. So it's a good idea to consider layering to keep warm on those colder days with wraps, scarves and jumpers.

Look out for cosy knitwear in the shops with pastel shades, paisley prints and oversized jumpers to flatter the figure. Casual dresses are a great staple for your wardrobe and can be accessorised for the evening with delicate jewellery, high heels and a chic clutch bag. It's also a good time to hunt for bargains, check out sales and money off bargains on the internet or the high street, as shops clear out their winter stock ready for the spring.

This pretty Pastel Pink Jumper from M&Co is on my wish list for February. Soft and feminine, it looks great with jeans, trousers and most skirts. For those colder days, wear it with a t-shirt underneath, and a classic jumper on the top. Accessorise with delicate silver jewellery.
