Nothing says novelty quite like a Christmas jumper. With #ChristmasJumperDay coming up this Friday all talk in the office has revolved around finding the most ridiculous of jumpers and the most impressive novelty knits people have spotted over the last month. I love a bold, fun knit and think that there’s absolutely no better time to go all-out than at Christmas, when you can literally put-on some festive cheer.
Last year I was obsessed with this understated, yet sparkly Warehouse knit but this year I’ve gone for a bolder and brighter option (as you can tell…). Those of you who’ve already seen my December Primark Haul (full of the most festive festivities) will already be familiar with this fun little Christmas Jumper. An already bold intarsia knit, complete with candy cane heart and velcro tab which you can (of course!) personalise with multi-coloured letters and hashtags. What more could you possibly want from a jumper!?
I wore mine over the weekend and felt oh so festive. While we’ve still got a couple of weeks to go before the big day I always find that a Christmas knit instantly helps me get into the festive spirit. I think this knit, especially is SO great to give to a grumpy relative to wear come Christmas day as it’s certain to cheer up even the grouchiest, Grinch-iest members of your family
Whether you’re into a more traditional Fair Isle knit, or prefer your Christmas jumper to be adorned with bells, whistles, puddings, gingerbread houses and candy cane’s there’s literally something for everyone in my little edit.
I’ve rounded up an assortment of the most fun, and reasonably priced, options on the high street. Even if you only chuck yours on for Christmas Jumper Day or, wear one each and every day in the lead up to Christmas Day there’s an option for all and every occasion.
If you opt for an all-out style, with flashing Christmas tree bulbs and singing Santa’s, keep the rest of your look quite paired back. Last year I wore a sequined bauble style Christmas Jumper over a white shirt with jeans and ankle boots and I’m probably going to opt for the same this winter – classic and fuss-free it’s a way of committing to Christmas cheer without going too OTT.
I’ll be wearing this fun knit to work , layered over a white shirt with mid-wash jeans and tonal accessories to fully embrace the festive fun that a merry Christmas Jumper brings.
