It’s Christmas Jumper Day, so here’s our edit of the very best this year, from designer favourites to high street must-buys.
December is here, the temperature has dropped and the radio is churning out Christmas tunes exclusively – it’s Christmas jumper time. But if you needed another excuse to get your festive jumper on: today (13 December) is Christmas Jumper Day 2019.
From stylish, cosy knits that you can’t wait to pair with an over-sized scarf and that coat you snagged in the Black Friday sales, to the novelty number you’re planning on donning to the office, we’ve got them all.
You won’t find any woolly fails here, and especially no Mark Darcy-esque reindeer motifs or crass Christmas catch-phrases. Instead, we’ve looked to some of our favourite designers and high street stores for chic but snuggly jumpers and knitwear to keep you looking your best through the colder months, bringing you the absolute best Christmas jumpers for 2019.
Whether you’re a fan of a Fair Isle print (there’s lots of those) or a bit of sparkle, we’ve consulted brands from Stine Goya to Calvin Klein to ensure there’s something to keep you cosy until Christmas.
Best Christmas jumpers
Going Glacial Sweater, Free People
How adorable are the polar bears travelling across the landscape of this pastel knit?
£158, Free People
Cora cable-knit sweater, SEA
Copenhagen was the inspiration behind this pretty knit, as designer Monica Paolini noticed while visiting the Christmassy city how colourful its inhabitants outfits were, even in the dead of winter.
Pearl Embellished Knitted Sweater, & Other Stories
The pearly details on this snuggly jumper remind us of snowy mornings. Pair it with creamy corduroys and a big scarf for a cosy look.
£85, & Other Stories
Lizzo's 100% that Christmas bitch jumper
Featuring everyone’s favourite singer, whose lyrics speak to the mood of 2019, this epic jumper is emblazoned with the words “100% that Christmas bitch.”
We think Lizzo would approve. And we think she’d approve of the fact that customers can choose to donate 10% from every purchase to a charity of their choice.
£32.99, Not Just Clothing
Flea-bahum-bag Christmas Jumper
Our obsession with Fleabag has reached festive heights thanks to this brilliant Christmas jumper. This limited edition knit has been created in conjunction with Not Just Clothing, who will donate a minimum of £50,000 to Save the Children through the sales of its limited-edition Christmas Jumper Day range, helping raise funds for Christmas Jumper Day which is on Friday 13 December this year. Oh, and there’s a fox on the back. It doesn’t get better.
£39, Not Just Clothing
Fair Isle Print Roll Neck Relaxed Fit Jumper, M&S
This casual, relaxed-fit jumper is the perfect thing to throw on for that annual Christmas walk. It’ll keep you looking of the season, while super snuggly, too.
£25, Marks and Spencer
Giulia Cream Cable Knit Jumper, Kitri
Nothing says cosy like a cream cable knit, and this beauty from Kitri doesn’t disappoint. Winter whites never looked so good.
Orange fair isle jumper, Lowie
Lowie only uses the finest soft wools, luxurious organic cottons and hand woven fabrics to create its heritage-inspired knits, so it’s no wonder that it makes the snuggliest Christmas jumpers. We adore this warm hue, but the fair isle collection has a plethora of shades to suit your sartorial taste.
Jacquard-knit jumper, PRINGLE OF SCOTLAND x H&M/CONSCIOUS
PRINGLE OF SCOTLAND and H&M’s conscious range have come together to design some absolutely gorgeous knits, perfect for Christmas. We love this oversized jumper which is made from recycled polyester.
Shaker Jumper, Alexa Chung
Is that holly we see? Well, thanks to the forest green and snuggly cream colour palette, this jumper certainly feels of the season.
£260, Alexa Chung
Lambswool Fair Isle Jumper, Calvin Klein
We love that the cosy print on this Calvin Klein jumper is made a statement by being added to the elbows.
£95, Calvin Klein
Asta Jumper, Wood Wood
We don’t think we’ve ever seen cuffs as snuggly as the ones on this Wood Wood jumper.
£225, Wood Wood
Zoe Fair Isle Jumper, Boden
Boden is known for its cheery prints and this rainbow, starry jumper of joy is no different.
Bansha Fair Isle Wool Jumper, &Daughter
The only thing better than a snuggly cuff? Why, a snuggly roll neck collar of course! This &Daughter pullover is sure to keep you warm in the winter months.
Starr Sustainable Jumper, Monsoon
It’s party season, so we won’t blame you if you fancy a side of sparkle with your snuggliest jumper. We love the shimmering stars on this Monsoon beauty.
Justin Fair Isle Sweater, Stine Goya
Stine Goya knows a thing or two about picking the perfect tones, and the cornflower blue in this jumper is exactly what this Christmassy print needed for a 2019 twist.
£210, Stine Goya
