Best knitwear to buy this Christmas
The embarrassingly brazen Christmas jumpers are back on trend with a tremendous vengeance this year. From designer labels to high street, everyone is getting over-excited by exuberant prints of skiers, reindeer and Santas. They’re warm and cosy, but be careful with them near that log fire! If you’re after a bit of a steal, go and check out these cheeky knits from Primark, just £12 each and utterly adorable.
Heading up the price range to something a little more demure but still snug and festive, Topshop presents a few different jumper collections. We’ve selected our favourites. The first of which is their Speckle Slouch Jumper (£36) in cream, and is exactly what it says on the tin. The other is a slightly more Scandinavian print, with some cheeky little skiers woven in, so it’s perfect for the slopes at just £42. One of the best things about Christmas is going on the long walks in the crisp, cold air, so don some woolly socks, boots and a gorgeous knitted piece to go out and enjoy nature that sparkles with frost.
Next on the agenda – and our personal favourite – are these pieces from Urban Outfitters’ Staring at Stars collection. These cardigans are just divine and look great with some denim shorts, or jeans and boots. The monochrome Array cardigan is £55 and the brown Birdseye Stitch is just £48.
And finally, what we would buy if for every time it rained in England we received £2. Firstly, this Double Tiger Jumper from Mulberry (£395…eek!) is just adorable. A simple yet flattering cut with a bit of charm. The other is the Lily Cape from Alice by Temperley. At £330 it’s not a steal, but its heavy and slouchy style is irresistible.
Given the fact that we are all a little strapped for cash at the moment, it’s unlikely we’ll be heading to Harrods to purchase new knitwear anytime soon. Surprisingly enough, eBay is a great place to pick up a cute jumper for a few quid. Given that a lot of the stuff on there is from the 80s and 90s, we’ve got some brilliant finds for you.
So there you have it. Wrap up warm and have a wonderfully woolly Christmas!
