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.

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever had a Christmas jumper, lol they’ve never appealed to me but you’ve picked out some amazing ones that aren’t garish. x

  3. I have never owned a Christmas jumper (I do have a Christmas onesie though!) and now I desperately want one! So many fantastic designs to choose from here!

  4. that bella freud jumper is just beautiful! I have a couple of festive ones now and they have such nice memories attached I smile whenever it’s christmas jumper time now 🙂 xx

  5. I want all of these. In fact, I would love to have enough to wear one for every day of December.

  6. I love the one that Lauren Conrad is wearing and I actually have one just like it! I also love the bauble one from Top Shop and the Santa one from Asos Curve, definitely ones I would go for! x

  7. I have never had a Christmas jumper before and there are some amazing ones in this post. I love the idea of wearing something cute and silly whilst raising money for a great charity too xx

  8. The one with the stag is my favourite, although I probably wouldn’t wear it. I have bought a Xmas jumper but it is duck egg blue wool with a few jewels at the neck.

  9. I love Christmas jumpers and always get a new one each year so I’ve quite a collection now! My favourite is the Kate Moss jumper.

  10. I love love love the red M&Co penguin jumper! And I’m loving the sexy footballers in jumpers too, haha. 😉 Christmas Jumper Day is the day after I get home from a winter sun holiday so I think I’ll DEFNITELY be needing a jumper!
