Oh, the Christmas jumper. Remember the days where we all laughed at Mark Darcy’s reindeer jumper in Bridget Jones’s Diary and thought Christmas jumpers were the tackiest things around? Nowadays, donning a Christmas jumper over the festive period is just as essential as the copious amounts of mulled wine and mince pies we’ll no doubt devour, as the garish, light up cheesy Christmas jumpers of the past have been swapped out for slightly more subtle, toned down versions - making the novelty Christmas jumper more accessible than ever before.
So, as you already know (if you don’t, then you better read this ASAP), Christmas Jumper Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about what festive knit you’ll be donning this year and how to wear the Christmas jumper. Although they’ve come a long way in terms of their reputation, style-wise, the novelty Christmas jumper is still a difficult one to master and is notoriously known for being difficult to style. Do you wear it oversized or slim fit? Do you tuck it into a skirt or wear it over jeans? What to wear with a Christmas jumper? Who knows, right?
At Select, we get that the knitted Christmas jumper isn’t the easiest thing to style and we don’t want you having a panic this festive period when Christmas Jumper Day comes around, so we’ve put together a little style guide to show you 3 ways to wear the Christmas jumper this December. We know that there will be several occasions where you may be required (begrudgingly or not) to don a Christmas jumper this December, so get a little outfit inspo from our ‘How To Wear A Christmas Jumper and Still Look Good’ style guide now and nail Christmas jumper styling this year. Whether you’ve got a fancy schmancy Christmas dinner to attend with an awkwardly festive dress code, or simply don’t know what to team your cheesy Christmas jumper with to wear to the office this December, 14th for Christmas Jumper Day, then we have got you covered! So snap up the Christmas jumper of your choice and get stuck into our style guide now and we promise you’ll never struggle to style your festive knit again...
