Do you love ’em? Do you hate ’em? Either way, the chances are you’ll probably end up wearing ’em. Whether it’s just for a laugh or a very bold styling move is up to you.
Christmas jumpers are growing in popularity every year (you know us: re never shy of jumping on a trend). This year, our Xmas knitwear styles have got bigger and better. Turkey puns and fair isle as far as the eye can see, read on for a festively fun piece all about the Christmas jumper and why you need to get one.
Just in case you needed the obvious answered, a Christmas jumper is a jumper you wear at Christmas (sorry). Always designed with bright, festive colours, motifs, slogans and even lights (no, not washing machine safe), they have become a solid part of British culture. We even have a national day for it in the UK!
And the day is… 13th December 2019. What does this mean? It means men and women all over the country will be rocking up to work/school/college/uni in their finest Christmas knit. It’s all a bit silly, but for the sake of getting in the merry spirit (and raising some money for charity), it’s worth it for the day. Hey, there might even be a prize for the best knit! *Cough, Topman.
Not that we’re at all biased, but it’s absolutely, 100%, non-negotiably Topman. Here are our favourites:
The people’s favourite, punny, graphic Christmas jumpers are an all-round winner. Best saved for those who don’t take themselves too seriously, these knits are bound to get you a laugh (or a smile from the grinch).
The more toned-down Christmas jumper on the market, this is for the guys who want to get jolly without going all the way. Understated but unmistakably Christmassy, these are the best Christmas jumpers to wear to work or college.
So simple that you may not even know they’re festive until you got so close it would be considered invasive. These Christmas jumpers are perfect for two kinds of guys; either the scrooge guy who’s been forced into the festive spirit, or the guy who loves Christmas so much he needs jumpers that he can get away with wearing every day.
Yes – Christmas t-shirts are now very much a thing. The cooler version of the Christmas jumper (subjectively), these t-shirts give you all the festivities without the fuss of a jumper. They also make really great Christmas presents… just saying.
