The Jumper Trend

Jumper MainEverything 90’s is back, including the jumper trend. What is a jumper? It’s a sleeveless dress, worn over another garment. Most commonly, we’re seeing this as a slip dress layered over a tshirt. This style is so perfect for summer, and a great way to make a slip dress more appropriate for day wear. The 90’s was a great decade for fashion, with lots of the trends now on repeat. Jumper 2Jumper 23Jumper 22Jumper 4Jumper 24I was watching ‘Picture Perfect’ on Netflix last week, a Jennifer Aniston film from 1997. In the opening scenes, her character is wearing the perfect 90’s look. A black slip dress, over a white tee, a backwards ball cap and her hair in braids. It’s funny how old trends become new again. Even those plastic chokers I thought we would never see again had a moment last season.

Along with the jumper style, we’re seeing so many other items from this decade come back into fashion. Denim jackets, vintage sports brands like Champion, mid drifts and wedge sandals. My personal favourite is the minimalist look – think of that clean, Calvin Klein aesthetic worn by style icons like Gwyneth Paltrow and Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. As a child of the 90’s, I’m fully embracing this style. Now, will the ‘Rachel’ haircut be back?! Or at least a Friends revival! Jumper 1

  • A Friend’s revival would be AWESOME! Haha, even though I was a tween, I did get the Rachel haircut, haha. I was literally obsessed with her and the show, I never missed an episode, until the end of the last season, I don’t know, I found it rather blah. I know, I can’t believe how all the trends are coming back around again and it’s so fun to have such awesome memories associated with them, too! I love your jumper dress and how you’ve styled it, indeed a perfect summer outfit! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!



    • Ah I’m just hoping so much for a Friends revival! Haha. I never get bored of watching that show. I love that you had the Rachel Haircut 🙂 Hope you’re having a great week so far! xo

  • I love that the 90s are back! Best years ever.
    And that black slip dress with that white top just screams 90s!
