Fashion: Christmas Jumper Day

I'm not a fan of Christmas jumpers - there I said it.

Often, I find their colours too loud, their motives too cheesy or simply just plain tacky. "But they are fun!" I can hear you say. No, they aren't. They are neither classy nor stylish - but I'm trying - like giving my best efforts here - to blend into the British tradition: I've bought a jumper that I'm comfortable wearing in public for Christmas Jumper Day which will be on Friday, 16th.

For my non-British readers - Hello Germany, US and Australia! - Christmas Jumper Day is a charity day celebrated in the UK to raise funds for Save The Children. However, the concept of wearing festive themed knitwear is widely popular here in Britain. People go crazy and start wearing funny Christmas jumpers as soon as it hits December 1st. This rather unique (and odd) phenomenon to the UK is something that I'm not 100% sure I will ever warm up to (sorry for the pun). However, I'm venturing into the seasonal trend and found a cool Christmas jumper at John Lewis.

JL sell a collection by Joules and it first got my attention during their crafts event that I helped to organise a few weeks ago. I love their simple, yet classy designs. The fabric of the jumpers is perfect for the relatively warm winters in London as the material is breathable, lightweight and super soft. The toned colours and the cute print of a Mini Schnauzer wrapped up in Christmas tinsel further ticks all the boxes for me. A stylish fit, pleasant colorway and an adorable dog - what's not to like?

At £49 this is a rather pricey Christmas jumper. If you're as picky as I am and dislikes wearing jumpers in general, then finding one that looks great and flattering becomes a challenge - so when you finally find THE one, you shouldn't be sceptical. You should buy it regardless - and with Christmas approaching faster each day, once it's gone, it's gone.

  2. I too am not a fan of Christmas jumpers. Like you said, they're loud, tacky and quite simply put hideous! However on the odd occasion you can find some jumpers which are cute and very subtle, like the one you have blogged about. At £49 though, tad steep but it's not so out there / in your face.
