The Christmas jumper is a funny beast. Many hate them and can't bear the thought of wearing an item that has either Rudolph or a snowman on it. And that's fair enough because it doesn't exactly scream "chic and sophisticated woman," does it? And while we're not knocking those who enjoy sporting a sweater festooned with LED lights and a bit of tinsel, there are ways to still be festive with your knitwear without compromising on style. For example, you can go for the simple red sweater, and you'll look suitably ready for the season.
There's the Fair Isle knit like the subtle sequin Zara option Enis (above) is wearing. These are popular throughout winter and have a bit of a Christmas-y vibe, yet they remain a wardrobe classic. And the embellished sweater is classic which is always a contender in our books, thanks to the gems taking on a snowflake-esque quality. Whatever your view, we've selected 15 cool Christmas jumpers that are ideal for those who love them (and even for those who don't).
