The time has (almost) come to wear your favourite Christmas jumper out again. Yes, Christmas Jumper Day is right around the corner. Not that we need an excuse to rock the festive knits - I've been doing it since December rolled around -, but it is a fun way to take part in something bigger and donate to the less fortunate, this Christmas. This year, Save The Children teamed up with Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as the Make-A-Wish UK foundation, so don't forget to put on your favourite jumper on Friday and donate to give families in difficulty the hope of a better Christmas.
I hear you though, how does one style a festive jumper and stay somewhat fashionable? Well, thankfully, I have come up with a few different options which should have you covered, whether you are in the office all day or just going for a glass of mulled wine in your local pub.
TO GO TO WORK
The office might not be the best place to crack up the jumper with a lit-up Christmas tree you got last year with your housemates - unless you're that guy from IT or work on the art desk, in which case, go for it and wear it ironically. But for the rest of us who would rather keep it low-key, this Chinti and Parker bow sweater is the perfect compromise. Magazine offices tend to have a much more relaxed dress code, but if you can't get away with boyfriend jeans in your workplace, swap them for a pair of black slacks and voilà!
TO GO SHOPPING
This Esprit little number is one of the more understated festive knits on the high street, but paired with a plaid shirt, a bauble hat and some flat boots, it is the perfect outfit to do your Christmas shopping in, before hitting the pub with your friends and family.
TO GO TO DINNER
Dressing up a Christmas jumper can be hard, but it's nothing a full skirt and a cute, novelty clutch can't do. Plus, this Dorothy Perkins one is still on the wearable and chic side, despite being covered in small Xmas pudding. And if you don't meet the girls for dinner on Friday night, this would also make for a great Christmas Day outfit!
So, will you be wearing your most festive knit, this Friday? What's your favourite place to buy Christmas jumpers from?
