There are some that love to join in, and some that don't. Those that embrace the Christmas Sweater will wear the wackiest Jumper with flashing lights, tinsel, pom pom and tassels, while those that are more anti will need convincing just to wear a jumper adorned with a single snowflake.
The Christmas sweater, once a TACKY gift you gave Dad in the 80's to force him to be grumpy all day while wearing Santa on his chest, is now a cool (ish) way to dress for Christmas.
If Dad kept all those gifts you gave him in the 80' and they've survived the attics moths, then he'll now have the last laugh selling them online for many more pounds than you paid C&A, BHS or Woolworths for them way back then.
Assuming you don't have a closet full of the original Vintage Christmas Sweaters, then don't worry, there are a plethora of Modern alternatives. Some just as OTT as they were then, some that could even be worn through the entire Winter, and many of course with a sense of humour. The good news though is that none of them cost the earth.
If the thought of wearing a Christmas Jumper puts the chills up you, then take a peek at the options below – Christmas jumpers can actually be stylish. Just as there are dozens of Christmas decorations that have progressed to stylish over the last 30 years, Christmas Jumpers have done the same. There are plenty of options that don’t look in the least bit tacky, and many that will bring a smile rather than a grimace to your face on Christmas Day.
It's taken me a while to come around to the thought of wearing one, but as the only member of my family not to partake in the last few years, I've decided to hunt out the wearable ones. The fashion influencers, Instagrammers and Fashion Bloggers of the world have adopted them with open arms, and maybe it's time more of us accepted them as Cool rather than Kitsch.
