When you think of Christmas jumpers, you think of garish, multicoloured novelty things, right? Or maybe you think of chunky, snuggly Nordic or Fairisle knits. Either way, I always think of busy prints and lots of colour - perhaps because I always associate Christmas itself with busy-ness and colour.
But when it comes to clothes, sometimes (only sometimes, mind ;)) it's nice to keep things simple - and when the whole world is jam packed to the rafters full of colour and lights and glitter, I think that's a pretty good time.
Which is why this year I opted for a minimalist number while choosing my Christmas jumper. Yes really! A lambswool crewneck reindeer jumper from GANT to be a little more precise.
And I'm in love with it. Head over heels! I love how soft it is, and how warm it is too - but it's lightweight at the same time which makes it perfect for layering.
I think it looks perfect up against a busy, rainbow backdrop - which is why I'm planning on teaming it with my new Marks & Sparks metallic midi and cream New Look ankle boots (and these pretty pearl earrings) for our annual Christmas Eve-Eve gathering this year!
Clockwise from top right:
Crewneck reindeer sweater, £110 - GANT // Metallic midi skirt, £35 - M&S // Triangular mother of pearl earrings, £24 - Oliver Bonas // Cream ankle boots, £27.99 - New Look
What do you think? Are you a fan of simple or busy when it comes to festive jumpers?
DISCLOSURE: GANT sent me this jumper in exchange for this post.
