Why are Christmas jumpers a thing?

Blame it on the allure of glitzy Hollywood starlets from yesteryear in their statement festive sweaters on the Alpine slopes of the 1950s or the insatiable demand of modern fast fashion, but Christmas jumpers are indeed a thing. Arguably they have become one of the most fun parts of those special moments, with halls, pets and families decked out in their matching holiday best. For couples, women's and men's Christmas jumper sets in matching prints and designs are a quirky way to coordinate at festive parties; while matching family Xmas jumpers make for the perfect annual postcard shot.

What do you wear with a Christmas jumper?

Ladies' Christmas jumpers are one of the easiest to find when it comes to variety and styles; alternatively, you could even opt for a Christmas jumper dress. Every well-composed Pinterest board will most likely include an adorable matchy-matchy moms and girls Christmas jumper set or families in coordinated pyjamas; either way, Pinterest is an excellent source of inspiration for anything from ugly to adorable. The best way to dress up a stylish jumper is with jeans or layered over a silky bias-cut skirt and ankle boots. If you opted for an ugly Christmas sweater this year, you’d want to balance it with a well-fitted pair of jeans to offset the gaudy number. A Christmas jumper dress is chic and feminine, so dress it up or down with warm leggings, booties, or sneakers.

When can you start wearing a Xmas jumper?

Throw out the fashion rulebooks this time of year because anything goes around Christmas! If your jumper is more neutral, you can wear it anytime you want to feel cosy and nostalgic. While you're at it, slip on those Christmas socks to get that festive feeling. If you are more into the garish ugly Christmas sweater vibe, you should refrain until at least mid-November before donning your yuletide gear; otherwise, you might get some unwanted attention. Part of the joy of the ugly jumper is in revealing it on Christmas Day or night; of course, its first appearance will bring about plenty of joyful laughs and cheer.
