Whether it comes with bells and tinsel or a more traditional fair isle print, there’s no better way to get in the festive spirit than donning a cheesy, Bridget Jones-esque jumper.
However, some may shy away from showing off their Christmas spirit through their festive attire in case they draw too much attention or even look a little funny. But the experts offer tips to style your festive jumper as part of a bang-on-trend outfit.
According to Boohoo: “Christmas time is ideal to embrace the cheesiness of novelty knitwear, with additions like flashing lights, tinsel, sequins or 3D elements are encouraged, as they allow you to capture the child-like joy of the season.
“However, if you’d like to wear your festive knitwear in a more subtle, stylish way, perhaps when attending your work’s Christmas Jumper Day event, there are some ways to do this.”
The experts say:
- Choose a Fair Isle print in muted tones to add classy and timeless appeal to your outfit.
- Pair with on-trend bottoms to elevate the overall stylishness of your outfit. For this time of year, the ideal pairing for your festive knit would be a black mini skirt, translucent tights, and knee-high boots for an extra bit of warmth.
- Alternatively, faux leather trousers are a stylish staple with any knitwear for the winter season and can easily take any knit from day to night when paired with some simple heels and accessorised with statement jewellery.
- If you want something cosier, choose a festive-inspired co-ord set. Matching sets are the height of trendiness right now, and they’re also perfect to keep warm as the colder weather hits. Styled with some fluffy-lined boots and a cute, oversized scarf, loungewear can easily be outerwear and perfect for a day of Christmas shopping.
