The annual office Christmas jumper day has been and gone (thank God). You wore the Christmas jumper and nursed a massive hangover as a souvenir. You thought this was the last of the Christmas jumper until next year, only for you to learn that wearing a Christmas jumper for Christmas day with the family is now a thing! Don’t bother asking “Since when?” You’ll just be met with long lectures about getting into the Christmas spirit and what not.
A new Christmas tradition is on the horizon, so embrace it, along with the endless feast and copious amounts of wine. Fear not fashionistas, your garish Christmas jumper doesn’t have to be so, here are some fun ways to style your Christmas jumper and still look cute on Christmas Day!
Add Statement Shoes
Owning countless pairs of shoes is a female’s prerogative, and this is one way you can easily uplift your festive jumper. You know too well that accessorizing is the key to making any outfit look fabulous, so what better way to do it than teaming your Christmas pullover with a pair of statement shoes? Ghillie flats or heels work wonders, and if you can, maintain the Christmassy theme with bright reds or verdant greens!
Pair with Ripped Jeans
Take your Christmas jumper grunge-side by creating the perfect Christmas ensemble of your favourite Christmas knit and a pair of ripped jeans. Complete your ultra-cool Christmas look with a pair of chunky ankle boots to maintain your blasé style while keeping your toes nice and toasty.
Over-the-knee Boots Work a Treat
Nothing says winter style better than a pair of killer over-the-knee boots. If you’re looking for a low-key festive look, team a bright red knitted jumper with a pair of your favourite winter boots that will curate a cunning street style look that quietly speaks “I love everything Christmassy, now pass me the wine!”
A Touch of Glitter
Glitter and the party season go hand in hand, and as it’s Christmas, there’s absolutely no reason why glittery clothes should only be just reserved for the clubs. Sequins have been huge on the runways, so add a touch of glamour to your Christmas jumper by pairing it with some sequin pants or a fashion-forward mini.
Go Scottish with Tartan
I heart tartan. I loved it when it wasn’t even a trending pattern. Keep your look traditional with a classic plaid – it’s timeless, and if you’re going to your partner’s parents for Christmas dinner for the first time ever, it’s also a safe bet!
80’s Glam and the Christmas Sweater
Uplift a boring Christmas jumper by adding a touch of metallic. Metallic adds a sense of occasion to any outfit and this will take you from day time festive lunches right through to the evening while you’re sipping on your winter wine cocktails. To make it even more special, add heels – they trump every other shoe!
I personally will be wearing my “Team Santa” Christmas pullover with a super cute pair of faux leather Freddy leggings – get in!
