Every year there’s an event that requires you to throw on a Christmas jumper.
Every year we leave it right to the last minute, making a mad dash to the closest Primark to rifle through whatever novelty jumpers are left.
Then, every year once said Christmas jumper event is over, we either throw away or immediately lose our brand new festive knit.
Every year the cycle repeats itself.
Every year, without fail.
This year, we’re putting our foot down. We refuse to let the Christmas jumper conundrum beat us. As part of this mission we’ve decided to take a different approach.
What if, instead of buying a last minute OTT novelty jumper, we invested in a festive knitted number that means we don’t have to compromise on style? One that we would actually wear willingly, throughout the the entirety of December and maybe even January. One that would be worn for more than a few hours on one day of the year.
I know, I know, it sounds a bit like sucking all of the fun out of it but if you’re really concerned about missing out on Christmas dress up, throw on a Santa hat and no-one will question your festive spirit. You’ll be warm, cosy and think about the cost per wear factor. You might think you’re getting a great deal with your cheap Christmas jumper but year after year, that all adds up.
