It’s Almost Christmas Jumper Time

If I was to list my favourite things in no particular order, Christmas jumpers would definitely be in there somewhere. I have such fabulous memories of them, from watching Bridget Jones Diary for the first time and seeing the delectable Colin Firth in a knitted monstrosity, to the first time I met my brother-in-law, which just happened to be on Christmas Day, and that my first words to him were ‘nice Christmas jumper you have there.’ With my boy being a Christmas baby, a Christmas jumper is a must for him, although for a long time I resisted myself.

But now it seems that the humble Christmas jumper has become a bit of a national obsession, with Save the Children’s Christmas jumper day taking place each year to raise valuable funds for charity (this year’s Christmas jumper day takes place on Wednesday 13th December.) You can find a style to suit, with cute animal designs, football inspired jumpers, and my personal favourite, Christmas slogan jumpers.

I have compiled a list of some of this years favourite designs, including a couple from Arsenal FC modelled by the gorgeous Olivier Giroud, my ultimate man crush. There are also designs from M&Co, Marks and Spencer and Dorothy Perkins. Plus, if you really don’t do jumpers under any circumstances, Boden have very kindly created a stylish Christmas Breton which will look just fabulous with dark denim and a beany hat.

Whether you like your Christmas jumper to be subtle and sparkly, cute and cuddly, or festooned with a Prosecco theme, make sure you embrace your seasonal side on December 13th.

Christmas Jumpers at the Ready

[affilinet_performance_ad size=468×60]

It used to be that most ridiculed item of clothing. Knitted by spinster aunts and grannies, gifted on Christmas Day. Worn for 10 minutes whilst cringing, and then hidden away, never to be spoken of again. We all remember that turkey buffet in the first Bridget Jones movie, when Mark Darcy’s hotness is slightly tempered by his choice of knitwear. Yes, I can only be talking about festive knits, but the Christmas jumper has come a long way since those bad old days.

These days, everyone gets into the spirit of Christmas by donning a jumper, and you can even do your bit for charity by wearing one. This year, Friday December 16th is Christmas Jumper Day, raising funds for Save the Children by asking people to wear a jumper and donate. Celebrities have shown that jumpers can range from the sublime and stylish, with Kate Moss in a Bella Freud version leading the way. But they can also be great fun too, with bad taste versions also proving popular.

And men enjoy wearing them just as much as us ladies do. In particular, Premier League football teams now produce their own version, with Match of the Day magazine producing a chart rundown of its faves last year. Olivier Giroud, my ultimate man crush, totally shows that they can still look as sexy as hell on the right person, and show a sense of humour too. Granit Xhaka, Graziano Pelle and Joe Hart also get into the Christmas Spirit, along with my West Brom faves, Claudio Yacob and Ben Foster.

This year there is a huge range of choice when it comes to a festive Knit, this post features some of my faves.
