2nd Day of Christmas: The Best Christmas Jumpers to Buy Now
Hello and happy Christmas Jumper Day! I know many of you will already have bought your Christmas jumpers, and will hopefully be wearing them today, but for those of you who haven’t, I thought I’d create an edit of what I have found to be the best Christmas jumpers on the market.
Before that though, let’s talk about what Christmas Jumper Day actually is and how it came about. On Friday 14th December (AKA today) the charity Save the Children are encouraging everyone in the UK to wear their Christmas jumper, whether they’re at home, school or work. Along with this, they ask you to donate £2 each to raise money for the charity and the children it helps. As the website states, a £2 donation could pay for the antibiotics to treat five children suffering from pneumonia, which is one of the biggest killers of children.
This post is in no way sponsored or in collaboration with Save The Children, I just think it’s a really great cause because 1. you’re literally saving children’s lives, and 2. you get to spread all the festive cheer in the form of a novelty jumper.
I bought the Christmas jumper I’m wearing here either last year or the year before from COW Vintage in Liverpool, so sorry if you wanted to get your hands on it! It’s my favourite one I’ve found as it wasn’t too pricey, it incorporates a whole lot of novelty elements to it but it’s also pretty flattering because it’s cropped so it looks great with high-waisted jeans, as styled here.
I decided to wear it in these photos even though you can’t buy it because, despite this being a post that is encouraging shopping, I wanted to include some sort of reminder that you don’t always have to buy brand new items or buy anything at all. I personally don’t think I’ll be buying a new Christmas jumper this year (although watch this space, as I’m very tempted by the ones below) because this one is just fine for me, considering I only wear it a handful times during one month of the year.
However, if you don’t own a Christmas jumper yet or yours is in need of an upgrade, here’s an edit of the best Christmas jumpers, from the novelty, to the glittery, to the slightly more subtle, I’ve found available to shop online:
My personal favourite is the Warehouse striped jumper with the Christmas cat. It’s subtle enough that you can style it for everyday wear but it still very much has that novelty element through the cat imagery! Let me know which one of the Christmas jumpers I’ve chosen is your favourite and don’t forget, if you already own one, to wear it today! You can donate to Save The Children as part of their Christmas Jumper Day here. See you tomorrow for another gift guide post!
