Christmas Jumper Outfit Inspiration

If you think that looking fashionable in a Christmas jumper is impossible, think again. From dressing your jumper up for Christmas dinner to pairing it with pyjamas, our seasonal outfits will have you covered no matter the event.

1. The Subtle & Seasonal Outfit

If this is your first year wearing a Christmas jumper, you might want to ease yourself into the trend with a slightly more subtle approach.

For a toned-down vibe, we recommend choosing knits or minimalist designs. Styling your jumper with jeans, ankle boots and a longline coat proves that festive knits have a place in every winter wardrobe.

2. The Christmas Dinner Look

Full of laughter, delicious food and family bonding, Christmas dinner is one of the most enjoyable parts of the day. Since the meal is central to many celebrations, you’ll want an outfit that matches up to the occasion.

For a stylish and seasonal ensemble, throw a sequin Christmas jumper over your fave party dress. Giving the meal a touch of sparkle, the only accessory this outfit needs is a Christmas cracker hat. You can even wear your slippers underneath the table and no one will know the difference!

3. Christmas Jumper Day

Falling on Friday 11th December, Christmas Jumper Day calls for your boldest, brightest and most Christmassy look. As well as choosing a novelty Christmas jumper, you and your family can go all out with Christmas tops, Christmas socks and seasonal accessories.

To mark the occasion with an iconic family photo, dress up in matching Christmas clothing. Merry and memorable, Christmas Jumper Day is the perfect excuse to embrace festive fashion.

There’s nothing better than getting cosy on a cold winter’s night. Whether you’re playing a board game tournament, cuddling up in front of the fire or putting on a festive film, chilled evenings at home wouldn’t be complete without comfy clothes.

For that special seasonal twist, kick back and relax wearing Christmas nightwear and your softest Christmas jumper. Christmas candles, throws and a box of chocolates will help you create a chilled out and Christmassy atmosphere.
