Christmas traditions revolve around a number of things- classic tunes, endless feasts and those cheesy Christmas jumpers. As the 13th December marks National Christmas Jumper Day, we’re showing you how you can break the mould of garish knits in favour of some more desirable ways to style them.
ADD STATEMENT SHOES
The perfect way to uplift your festive knit is through your accessories, and what better way than with a statement shoe. Keep it in theme with bright reds or greens, and add intricate detail with a ghillie flat or heel.
TEAM WITH RIPPED JEANS
Who knew a Christmas knit could work with a grunge ensemble? Make it work throughout December with a ripped jeans pairing- finish with ankle boots for a hardwearing edge that keeps those toes toasty.
PAIR WITH OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
Over the knee boots are everywhere, and there’s no avoiding them. If you’re into those low-key festive nods, team a bright red jumper with a pair of OTKs for a street style look that whispers ‘I love Christmas’.
JUST ADD GLITTER
Glitter is a given for the party season, but there’s no reason why it has to be reserved for the day time. Why not team your Christmas jumper with a pair of sequin trousers or a skirt to add a touch of glamour.
TEAM WITH TARTAN
Don’t think that making your fairisle knit cool calls for modernisation- classic plaids are timeless, and make the perfect pairing for the office. Finish with an autumnal palette to embrace that cold weather dressing to the maximum.
UPLIFT WITH HEELS AND METALLIC TOUCHES
Attending a party with a Christmas jumper theme? Make it work for the evening with metallic touches and your favourite pair of heels.
