Normally at this time of year I'd be advising on black tie outfits, velvet jackets and smart casual looks for wearing to the Christmas party. But lets face it most of our Christmas parties will be on Zoom or outside this year wont they? And are you really going to dress up in your smartest suit for those?
Probably not, so if you'd like to get into the spirit of Christmas (and no, I don't mean the drinks cabinet) then here are some suggestions of knitwear that give a nod to the big fella and his reindeer (or the Three Wise Men - whichever story you subscribe to) but that you can wear afterwards too.
I give you....The Twelve jumpers of Christmas. And to keep it in the realm of Shop Local / Buy British / Save Your High Street where possible I've stuck to the smaller British brands too.
Kind Penguins best fishes Christmas jumper
Okay so you might not be able to wear this one year round but who could resist a pun like this to bring a smile to everyones faces on Xmas Day?
Delivered with zero plastic and with 10% going to a penguin conservation project, what's not to love?
Far Afield khaki ribbed knit
You'll be first in line to organise the troops for those outdoor social gatherings when you have on this festive green, ribbed knit sweater to keep you warm.
Inspired by fishermans sweaters, the super chunky knit will see you through for alfresco lunches, the outdoor ice rink and fireworks on New Years Eve.
