Shopping: it’s Christmas jumper time!

Every year I absolutely have to buy a new Christmas jumper. In the same way that I absolutely have to buy a brand new pair of cosy pyjamas to wear when I open my presents on Christmas morning. Just like when I was a kid. Except now I tend to have a Champagne breakfast with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, rather than an entire tin of chocolate-dipped shortbread biscuits.

In order to get maximum wear out of it – and why wouldn’t you want to? – the prime time to purchase that essential piece of novelty winter fashion is right now. I’ve been doing my research (this is a highly considered purchase, after all) and have narrowed it down to a nice, neat top five. Here they are. Now I just need to decide which one gets the coveted title of Christmas Jumper 2013.

If you can’t wear sequins at Christmas, when can you eh? I’m more than a little bit in love with this sparkly present jumper from Topshop. It’s also made with angora for an ever-so-luxurious feel on Christmas Day. That’ll do nicely with my Champagne, thank you.

By far the best bargain,  this simple knitted Christmas jumper from H&M is rather more subtle than the others in this list. Great for adding a Christmas touch without going too OTT, you could start wearing this one right now. Actually, scratch that. I’d wear them ALL right now.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! *Fa la la la la, la la la la…*
