Style Theory: Christmas jumpers can go from the sublime to the ridiculous. If you want a slightly more subtle, cool, 'nod' to the Christmas jumper rather than an all singing, light up Christmas snow scene sweater (see Primark one below and I do strangely like this too!!) then here are a few gorgeous, snuggly winter sweaters and styling ideas that will see you through the Christmas period and beyond...
How to style the fairisle look...
|Looks fab with boyfriend jeans and shoe boots for a laid back going out look|
|Add a touch of colour to a monochrome fairisle with a bright scarf|
|Slightly obsessed with this sweater..love it but cannot find similar..yet|
|A fabulous look on the ski slopes|
I am a fan of the subtle Christmas jumper look, I love a touch of fair isle in the winter and also want to be able to wear my sweaters more than once or twice. 70s trends are becoming more prevalent this season with skinny flares having a moment so there is no better time to go for it with a retro sweater and rock the 70s ski holiday look....
Here is my take on the look...
|Sweater: Topshop £36|
Jeans: J Brand Lovestory £175
Shoeboots: Marks and Spencer £29.50
Here are my selection of the best 'tasteful' Christmas sweaters available on the high Street now:
|Plumo Samsoe Sweater £98|
I am a huge fan of the online store Plumo, this is on the pricey side but can be worn year after year. The colours are beautiful would look lovely with skinny jeans and shoe boots for a stunning Christmas look.
|Topshop Brushed Fairisle Jumper £48|
|Zara Jacquard Sweater £45.99|
|Fat Face @John Lewis £45|
|Mango Jacquard Sweater £44.99|
|Gap Fair Isle Stripe Wool Sweater £39.95|
Gap has matching scarf for a really cute, coordinated look.
|Topshop Fairisle Yoke Jumper £36|
This is the jumper I bought I sized up one size as I prefer sweaters a little on the bigger side. It is quite a short sweater, I wore with my J Brand jeans which are a little higher waisted that my skinnies so I would recommend higher waisted jeans for a sleeker look.
|M&S Retro Jumper £29.50|
I spotted this in my local store, it is a stunning sweater and great for the price (20% off with M&S vouchers at the mo) It is low stock online but worth trying in stores.
|Primark £14 (In store only)|
I saw this jumper in Primark and couldn't resist taking a photo..it has flashing lights!! Not so tasteful but good fun..
And of course the kids love a Christmas jumper..here are my two childrens off to school on Christmas Jumper day..too cute!!
|Primark: £8- £12|
Are you a fan of the subtle Christmas jumper or do you like the all-singing, all-dancing version? Will you be wearing yours on Christmas Day? I must admit I am loving my Topshop one and will also be wearing it with black skinny jeans and my Emu boots for a cosy Sunday look!
As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time, Frances xxx
