In nearly the words of Noddy Holder…it’s (almost) CHRISTMASSSS!!!! Long gone are the days when getting into the Christmas mood with a seasonal jumper was something to be mocked about. These days, the Christmas jumper is back in a big way, ok, maybe semi ironically but that doesn’t mean we cannot have fun.
There is no better way to celebrate the season than by wearing an ornate jumper covered with elves, snowmen, Christmas presents, sleigh bells or even Santa himself. All the big-name brands get involved in the fun these days, with Star Wars an ever-popular them for Christmas jumpers.
There are a couple of different directions you can go with your Christmas jumper. You can keep it classy by choosing a subtle design. This can be a good option for the office or anywhere else where you need to look professional and put together. Typically, jumpers that feature snowflakes, reindeer or subtle Christmas tree patterns are appropriate for these types of situations.
Next, you can kick it up a notch with a slightly more elaborate design for a party or a family event. Look for jumpers that are slightly gaudier if you really want to make an impact. For instance, you might opt for a top with bells sewn all over it that jingles every time you take a step. Alternatively, you could go for a bold reindeer or Santa Claus pattern that takes up the whole front of the jumper. Whichever you choose, be sure to look for bright colors to help yourself stand out from the crowd.
When it comes to extreme jumpers, the brighter the colours the better. Look for rich, saturated shades of red, blue and green to really stand out. Any graphics on the jumper should be big and bold so that they can be seen clearly from all the way across the room. You may even want to opt for a jumper that has embellishments such as garland, bells, tiny Christmas ornaments or puffy 3-D appliques sewn to its surface. The more elaborate the better!
