Festive Friday: ways to wear novelty knits

The Christmas countdown continues with the second of my Festive Friday series, and todays is all about Christmas jumpers. After shedding their geeky image and becoming massively fashionable in recent years, this Christmas they are still looking to be as popular as ever. And if you don’t want to miss out I’d recommend getting yours sorted early as they could easily sell out! Some of the nicest I’ve seen are from New Look, but I have got a very reasonably priced one (£12) from Primark.

They’re perfect for Christmas morning or worn with comfy trousers for cosying up during the festive season, but a novelty knit can be so much more!! I have plans to wear mine as part of a work outfit as well as dressing it up to give the novelty factor to a night out, so I wanted to share my outfit inspiration. From cute party outfits to smart casual looks, here are my ways to wear Christmas jumpers.

1. Collared mini dress

This would be a nice festive outfit for work. The dress (Lavish Alice) is fairly smart, and the collar will look pretty peeking over the top of the cute penguin knit (New Look). And I thought a pair of metallic boots (M&S) would be an ideal finishing touch.

2. Winter sparkle

This icy blue pudding jumper (New Look) is one of my favourites this year, and pairing it with a sequin skirt (Next) and pretty heels (Ted Baker) makes it perfect for dressier occasions.

3. Daytime festivities

I’m probably most likely to wear mine like this as it combines casual style with a bit of sparkle. Wear over leggings and pair with patent ankle boots (Dorothy Perkins) and a long-line sheer shirt that will hang below the jumper. This shirt (ASOS) is ideal as it has an embellished collar which will peek out over the top, and I love bright red jumpers like this one (Boohoo).

4. Statement necklace

It’s easy enough to style a jumper from your existing wardrobe just by adding an embellished collar necklace (ASOS). The reindeer jumper (ASDA) is cute but not too much (until you switch on the flashing nose) thanks to the muted colour and I’d style with a PU leather skirt (JOY) and ankle boots (Dorothy Perkins) worn with tights.
