Despite the fact that it's finally June, the unpredictable British weather ensures that we'll still experience some pretty cold and miserable days this side of the year.
So what better way to ensure you’re fully prepared for all weather eventualities than a brilliantly bright jumper that’s still light enough to wear in the summer months?
We were inspired by Lorraine Kelly’s latest on-screen look, which saw her attempt to brighten up a dull day in a chic, sunny yellow outfit.
The 58-year-old presenter opted for a stylish knit for her Tuesday morning show, from none other than high-street favourite Marks & Spencer.
Lorraine decided on the gorgeous and cosy cashmere v-neck knit from the retailer, which sells for £75. We reckon the versatile piece is a great investment piece for your summer and winter wardrobe.
Lorraine Kelly decided on the yellow version of the luxurious jumper, matching perfectly with her silver Topshop shoes. The cashmere jumper is available in a range of colours, from light raspberry and of course, Lorraine’s yellow, through to more neutral shades including grey and black.
The M&S knit is currently available in almost all sizes, from a six through to a 24. And it would make for the perfect jumper for a range of occassions. Pair it with some smart black cigarette trousers and heels for work – or dress it up like Lorraine, with a midi skirt, for more relaxed dinners or parties.
If you’re still debating whether or not to purchase one for yourself, don’t just take Lorraine’s word for it. So far, the jumper has won a wave of positive reviews on the Marks & Spencer website.
One happy customer wrote, ‘Great new addition to my wardrobe- great fit (size 8), perfectly classic & just that little bit special.’
While another agreed, ‘My 5th M&S ladies’ cashmere jumper. Great quality and lovely to wear. More colours please.’
Lorraine completed her summer-inspired look with a beautiful white lace mid-length skirt from Coast – which would be ideal for summer weddings.
It’s actually the second time the presenter has opted to wear this jumper, so it’s clearly a favourite with her.
She previously wore the item with an equally summery Warehouse skirt, and some matching yellow L.K.Bennett heels.
The sweetpea ruffle midi skirt, with a layered, asymmetric hem, is also a very affordable buy. Originally on sale for £49, the skirt has now been reduced to £36.75.
It’s still available in almost all sizes, although is currently sold out in size 18.
