It’s officially December and time to look forward to Christmas. I started early this year but I waited till the 1st December to wear a Christmas jumper. For someone who didn’t get the hype for them when I first moved here (9 years ago) I’ve managed to collect a fair few over the years. Now I love them and I couldn’t imagine the festive season without one. I happily wear them throughout all of December, not just on Christmas Jumper Day.
It’s easy to get hold of Christmas jumpers, everyone sell them! Over the years, I’ve not bought a singe one of mine from the same place, they’re all different brands. You can get really cheap ones from places like Primark or even Aldi. Yes, since last year, Aldi sell them too. Last year I picked up this flamingo Christmas jumper. How could I not when I love flamingos so much. This year they have a flamingo Christmas t-shirt. I believe they still offer free shipping if you order online but sometimes stores have a larger offering.
My most recent Christmas jumpers are slightly less out there but still with fun prints. ‘Dear Santa, I can explain…’ is from Studio. It’s a thin black jumper which is great as you could tuck it in under a leather skirt for a more stylish look. I am planning on wearing this on Christmas Day, perhaps like suggested here or as I wore it in a recent blog post.
When IWOOT got in touch and asked if I would like to try one of their Christmas jumpers* I couldn’t say no. They have so many fun ones to choose from. Although I love their political range, I would never wear one of them myself. Neither am I a massive Star Wars fan but once I saw this Fro-Man jumper I couldn’t help but smile. It’s so cute and a bit different to other Christmas jumpers that I’ve seen or own. It’s perfect for the start of December as it’s not too out there being a grey colour. I get more comments looking festive when I wear my plain knitted red jumper. A jumper I happily wear any time of year.
As much as I love Christmas jumpers you can tell from my fashion style that I like to keep them fairly minimalistic and plain. My first ever Christmas jumper is this grey one from bonprix. It’s very simple but yet screams Christmas with the sparkly snowflake. I couldn’t get away with wearing it any other time of year.
Another simple but effective Christmas jumper is this reindeer one from boohoo. I’d say it’s a classic and a typical pattern for Christmas jumpers. I believe when I bought it, it came in several colour options but I of course chose monochrome as it’s easy to style up and I will never get bored of it. It’s quite thick so I save it for colder days.
I also own a couple of Christmas themed t-shirts: one with sparkly baubles and one with the Coca-Cola truck and the ‘Holidays Are Coming’ slogan. Holidays are truly coming and I’m so excited for it!
Have you picked out which jumper you will be wearing next week on Christmas Jumper Day? What type of Christmas jumpers do you go for – sparkly, minimalistic, over the top or perhaps a homemade?
