How do we only have 15 day until Christmas? Where has the time gone this year!? After a Christmassy trip to Berlin, I can finally admit – I’m feeling a bit festive! So when the lovelies at New Look got in touch asking me all about my ‘Throwback Christmas Jumpers‘ I thought this would be a good place to start with some festive posts.
So, Christmas jumpers – I’ve had a few, some more embarrassing than others. I had wanted to include a few pictures of my Christmas jumper style in years gone by but the proper golden oldie snaps (actually in print – not digital, shock horror!) are safely nestled in my parents loft, probably gathering dust, never to be seen again. The only one I could find was nabbed from my Instagram account and I apologise for the horrific mirror selfie, I’m even pouting a bit – cringe! Not sure what I was thinking with the pose (or the jumper) but this was a Primark special, a cutesy reindeer number and I was on my way to Christmas Buffet day at work. Pure Christmas jumper tackiness in its true form, but fab for the work Christmas lunch as it’s always a fun day in the office.
This year I’ve decided to go for something a little more stylish (well, as sylish as you can get for a Christmas jumper!) I absolutely love this Pink Stag Jumper (£22.00 from New Look) as it’s a little more elegant and is not too overly-Christmassy meaning it’s a little more versatile than a jumper with a huge cartoon reindeer on. It’s still got an element of Christmas with the sparkly diamanté reindeer noses! This will look fab paired with skinny jeans and warm knee high boots and I’ll probably get quite a bit of wear out of it over the festive season (and years to come). There are some gorgeous Christmas jumpers out this year, New Look had quite a large selection, many of them being slightly more stylish than the classic cartoon jumpers, however if you do want to go the whole hog – Primark are doing jumpers with complete light up designs that will certainly draw anyones attention!
Do you have a throwback Christmas Jumper or a favourite this year?
