The Christmas Jumper; you’ll either love it or hate it, but there is no better way to spread some festive cheer than with a classic or contemporary Christmas jumper. Not only will it keep you warm and cosy, but they look great too.
We know that some can look a little garish, and for some that will be the appeal. If you want to go all out for your work’s Christmas jumper day, then we’ve got you covered. Think tinsel, pompoms, wacky characters, funny slogans and even jumpers that light up.
But there are also a whole range of cute and subtle designs on the market that are perfect for everyday wear. Fair Isle patterns, seasonal quotes and animal prints are popular designs that can be worn all throughout winter without people thinking you’re a Christmas obsessive, and these tend to be the more appealing option for those who can be a bit of a humbug when it comes to celebrating Christmas.
Take a look at our list of the best Christmas jumpers 2017 has to offer; we’ve found something to suit all styles and budgets, and for those who are both naughty and nice this December.
1. Yumi Fluffy Penguin Christmas Jumper
A cute winter jumper for penguin lovers
Best for: Comfort | Material: 85% Acrylic, 15% Wool | Main colour: Grey
If you don’t want to go too OTT this Christmas, then this cute penguin jumper is subtle and soft and could be worn all throughout winter. It’s not too thick, either, which means you can team it with something underneath for an even more casual look. This jumper has made our number one spot due to its comfort. The penguin itself is fluffy and the jumper is fitted which makes it appealing to lots of ladies compared to other Christmas jumpers which tend to be quite frumpy. It is a little pricey for a jumper, but it is of high quality and can be worn year after year as it is not entirely specific to Christmas.
2. Looks Like Cocktails Christmas Jumper Sweatshirt
A slogan sweatshirt makes for a great alternative Christmas jumper
Best for: Slogan | Material: 50% Cotton, 50% polyester | Main colour: Red, Grey, Navy, Black
If you’re favourite thing about Christmas is the celebrations, then this jumper is for you. It’s very subtle slogan “it’s beginning to look a lot like cocktails” is enough to indicate you’re participating in the festive spirit, but not so much that it makes you look Christmas crazy. The sweatshirt style also makes it less of a traditional jumper and something more casual that could be worn around the house any time of year. It comes in a range of colours and isn’t too pricey; this is the best Christmas jumper for those who are more excited about the New Year’s Eve party than they are Christmas Day.
3. F&F Light-up Reindeer Christmas Jumper
The ultimate Jumper that will light up the room this Christmas
Best for: Cheesy jumper | Material: 94% Acrylic, 6 % Polyester | Main colour: Black
Christmas obsessives will love this light up jumper. You can really show your festive spirit with this cute reindeer design that you can switch on and dazzle your friends with. However, if you don’t want to be too OTT, the lights can be switched off, making it a cute jumper that is warm and fluffy (the jingle bells may get on your nerves a bit, though). This is an affordable jumper that is worth it even if you only wear it on Christmas Day.
4. Boohoo Bah Hum Pug Slogan Christmas Jumper
A stylish design for humbugs and dog lovers
Best for: Dog lovers | Material: 100% Acrylic | Main colour: Cream
This is a cute jumper if you love pugs (and if you don’t love pugs then we think you might actually be the Grinch) and it is soft and stretchy for a more casual look and feel. This jumper is true to size and comes in a neutral cream colour which makes it slightly less garish than the Drake jumper, for example. For a novelty design that you can wear year after year, this “Bah Hum Pug” jumper won’t go out of style.
5. Gingle Bells Unisex Christmas Jumper
A casual sweatshirt for the Gin lover in your life
Best for: Having a ‘Merry’ Christmas | Material: 50% cotton, 50% polyester | Main colour: White
Christmas is all about getting merry, and what better way to do that than with a G&T. If you know someone who loves a Christmas tipple, then this GINgle Bells sweatshirt is perfect for them. The style makes it more casual than a standard woolly jumper, making it ideal for wearing out and about or snuggling up on the sofa in. it’s very white though, so make sure you don’t spill your Christmas dinner down it.
6. ASOS Foundation All Things Christmas Jumper in Metallic Yarn
A crazy Christmas pattern for those who are crazy about Christmas
Best for: All things Christmas | Material: 50% Cotton, 48% Acrylic , Metallic Fibres & Nylon | Main colour: Grey
Christmas tree? Check. Snowmen? Check. Candy canes? Check. This festive jumper looks like there was an explosion at the Christmas factory, in the nicest possible way. Although quite busy looking, we love the subtle metallic detailing on this jumper and that it incorporates cute robins, wreaths, and snowflakes as well as other classic Christmas imagery. The light background balances out the busy design and for just £25.00 RRP, we think this jumper is a great staple for your winter wardrobe.
