The high street is awash with festive fancies. From the sweet to the cheeky to the straight up naughty, whatever your personality you can find a knitwear item to celebrate Christmas in. Here is my shopping guide to the elegant, stylish and understated Christmas sweaters available right now on the British high street.
Wear gorgeous shades of wine red with lots of great textures like silk, leather, velvet and wool for a very chic and polished Christmassey look.
Mint Velvet is a fantastic brand that always makes my clients feel like a million bucks. Elegant designs, fabulous fabrics and stylish finishes made for real life! This sweater is great for covering bottoms and gives a subtle nod to the festive season without being cheesy.
I love this winter mountain scene sweater for a different take on Christmas style. I am a massive fan of Marks and Sparks, they really do have something for everyone! Make sure you try this on before you buy though and look at how the placement of the graphic sits on your torso. Does the band at the bottom sit in a flattering place…?
This fab sweater can be enjoyed after Christmas too! The sequins are fun and girlie while the oversized shape means you can dress it up with leather look leggins or down with jeans. At just £24 you can get the black version too!
Something a bit different, this soft and cosy open front cardigan is very chic. Layer over a simple dress or wear with daytime denim. Perfect for Christmas morning and for all the chilly days until spring.
Chamonix-based mountain wear label Perfect Moment have this gorgeous extra-fine Italian merino wool turtleneck sweater to keep you chic and cosy this year. Wear on the slopes and at Apres!
A totally different take on a Christmas jumper, this beautiful black floral sweater is elegant and stylish. The boxy fit is very cool, but not suitable for the tall or the short because it will sit in a weird place on your body and mess with those all important proportions. But if you’re average height, dress this sweater up or down with denim, leather or even sequins for festive glam.
You’ll no doubt recognise this beautiful blue nordic style sweater from the M&S #GoJumpers ads. It’s also been front and centre in store because its flattering relaxed fit is fun, festive and can be worn in lots of different ways. Try tucking it into jeans and wearing a large buckled belt or layering it over a silky slip dress.
