Christmas jumpers are a clothing item that has exploded in popularity within the past few years. With most high street retailers selling Christmas jumpers, there is now a vast amount of choice perfect for ugly jumper parties or simply just lounging around at Christmas.
The general trend this year seems to be that the jumpers are less obtrusive, with a lot of fairisle knits and subtle sequins. However, there is still an extensive selection of all types of Christmas jumpers to choose from, and I have rounded up my four favourite retailers for Christmas jumpers this year.
ASOS have one of the largest collections of Christmas jumpers for men and women on the market. There is a great range of fairisle knit jumpers at suitable price points. This trend is arguably the most wearable as you can style it for day to day without looking over the top. This style of jumper could be paired with leggings or joggers for a cosy look or with skinny jeans and heeled boots for a casual Christmas gathering.
If you are in the market for a Christmas jumper with a funny slogan or pun, boohoo has the greatest selection. These kind of Christmas jumpers are great to wear at a Christmas jumper themed party as they are not as garish as jumpers with 3D snowmen or built in lights! Boohoo have jumpers with classic slogans such as ‘Merry Christmas ya filthy animal’ as well as more original ideas such as ‘#elfie’. Paired with leather look leggings and heels this style of jumper is easily dressed up, but equally could be paired with jeans and trainers for something less formal. Boohoo is even selling Christmas jumpers for dogs, so if you want to treat your pup back at home Boohoo is the site to visit!
3) George at ASDA
Whilst most of us would not think to shop in George at ASDA, the store does have a great selection of Christmas jumpers at prices that are very affordable for students. From subtle jumpers with embellished snowflake patterns to jumpers with a Christmas tree made from pom poms, ASDA has a lot to offer. As these jumpers are so inexpensive you could buy one in a larger size and wear as a jumper dress to experiment with the Christmas jumper trend. Paired with over the knee boots, this would be a stylish twist for any Christmas jumper parties you have.
Another shop not typically associated with students, Next has an extensive range of Christmas jumpers for everyone. Whilst the price point is slightly higher, if you want to treat yourself to a great quality Christmas jumper Next is the place to go. Personal favourites include a cream fluffy jumper with embellished snowflakes on it and a navy jumper with a 3D robin on it. Next has the best selection of Christmas Jumpers for men, with very subtle designs as well as completely over the top and garish jumpers, depending on what you are looking for!
Overall, there is a great range of Christmas jumpers to choose from this year, with an increasing amount of designs being subtle enough that they are wearable on a day to day basis around Christmas. Although it is entirely acceptable to wear an extravagant jumper with tinsel and music playing from it, it is Christmas after all!
