I’m not a huge fan of the Christmas jumper. Not in a ‘bah humbug’ way, really, but there’s just something about a bulky, colourful jumper that doesn’t really suit me. Every year, though, I see everyone else wearing them and want to join in. So is there such a thing as a stylish Christmas jumper? I went on a little hunt, and I found some proper Christmas crackers!
hush never cease to impress me with their gorgeous, stylish homewear, and they’ve just released their own version of the festive woolly: the scrummy Stella jumper, (above) featuring a delicate gold star knitted into a gorgeous soft knit. Understated but still deliciously festive.
Boden’s 25th December sparkle jumper gives just a hint of its purpose while being so subtle I think you could get away with wearing it all winter. I love the boyfriend shape and the soft, cashmere mix:
If you’re looking for something extra special, The White Company’s divine sequin batwing jumper might be for you. It’s a decadent 95% cashmere, 5% wool mix, scattered with sequins. I love it exactly as it’s worn here, with some jeans and a mess updo. When you’re wearing one piece that’s so special, everything else can take a back seat:
This lovely little graphic printed top from Next is high on my want list too – a snip at just £20 and Christmassy but in a very subtle way:
This cotton blend cream reindeer jumper with just a hint of sparkle in the shape of a reindeer is from Collection WEEKEND at John Lewis and it’s the perfect Christmas day jumper for me – comfy but still festive. Grab one quick if you like it – the 8 and 10 are sold out already!
What about you? Spotted any Christmas beauties I should know about?
