Christmas Jumpers

Love them or hate them, Christmas jumpers are still the must-have knit this Winter. It doesn't matter if you favour the scandi-chic fairisle patterns, or prefer a fun motif, there's probably a jumper out there for you!

 I personally adore fairisle patterns, and will be wearing my cream fairisle cardigan with my velvet skater skirt, and studded slippers this Christmas. It may in fact end up being my Christmas Day outfit.

I browsed the virtual racks to find the best festive knits. I was hoping to put together a selection that catered to both plus size and straight sizes (I hate that phrase).What I found was that most brands had either sold out of the fabulous knits I'd been admiring all season, or had few sizes left in stock. Some in this collage even disappeared whilst I was putting this post together.

These were the best of what I found...

1. Next fairisle pattern lambswool rich sweater £38.00 (up to size 22UK)
2. Dorothy Perkins grey penguin jumper £28.00 (up to size 22UK)
3. Dorothy Perkins grey snowflake jumper £28.00 (up to size 22UK)
4. Joe Browns at Simply Be love heart jumper £45.00 (up to size 32/34UK)
5. Matalan falmer heritage fairisle hooded cardigan £25.00 (up to size 20UK)
6. Next penguin sequin sweater £32.00  (up to size 22UK)
7. F&F at Tesco
8. New Look Inspire

Which one is your favourite?

 I think mine are the lovely red fairisle knit, and the two grey penguin jumpers. They'd look great with a pair of skinny jeans and boots, or tucked in to a skirt with ballet pumps.

All of these Christmas jumpers go up to at least a UK20/22 and the lovely bold Joe Browns one goes up to a UK32/34. They all start from a size 6 or 8, except for number 8, which begins at an 18.

They'd all be perfect for snuggling up in front of the fire with a Christmas movie and a glass of wine, or for a Boxing Day walk to steal half an hour's peace from a crowded house. Admit it, you find any excuse to escape for a while when your relatives are driving you crazy, too!

I hear that Primark have a pretty good selection of Christmas knits, too, so it could be worth braving the chaos if you fancy embracing the trend this Christmas.

Do you love or hate Christmas jumpers?

How would you wear one this season?
