So here’s something you might not know: In American English, the term jumper refers to a dress meant to be worn over a sweater or a shirt, but in British English, a jumper is a sweater. Both languages also recognize the word to mean “a person who jumps.” But you probably already knew that.

Steering back to the point of this post, I recently scooped up this dark navy jumper (American English usage) at my neighborhood thrift shop to wear over my favorite olive green jumper (British English usage), and I’m liking the posh (though verbally confusing) result. Jumpers are really easy to wear but they haven’t been en vogue for a while, so it baffles me that their frumpy country cousin, the overall, keeps making its way back into seasonal trends. So this winter, I challenge all you stylish ladies to try out a jumper (you can even just take a summer dress, wear it over a sweater and call it a jumper) and see how you like it! It’s a nice way to maximize your wardrobe and it’s also a lot less boring that just wearing a sweater and a skirt.
