If you are thinking of holiday outfits you can wear this season, a jumper will be the perfect item.
The term jumper may be misunderstood, so let’s start by clarifying. In America, some consider jumpers to be a one-piece outfit, usually consisting of pants and a shirt although shorts can be substituted for pants.
But in England, jumpers refer to long sleeved shirts that do not have any buttons or zippers. They can be made of a jersey fabric, or they can be crocheted or knitted.
For this article, we’re going to take a trip to England to discuss the best jumpers (meaning long sleeved shirts) you can wear for the Christmas season. Here are a few that are ideal.
Ugly Christmas Jumpers
Ugly Christmas jumpers (or sweaters) have rose in popularity in the past few years and they are guaranteed to get a smile. Note that the operative word here is ugly. To qualify, your jumper should have some sort of undesirable pattern, animal or character. If not, it may just be considered cute.
Fun Christmas Jumpers
Now here’s where we make the distinction. If your jumper bears anything like cute forest animals, serene snow scenes and the like, it is no longer considered an ugly Christmas jumper. It is now a cute Christmas jumper. It’s perfectly acceptable to wear a cute Christmas jumper as long as you don’t try to enter any ugly Christmas jumper contests.
Classy Christmas Jumpers
Jumpers can be fun, but they can also be quite elegant adding a subtle touch of style. If you are taking your look in this direction, opt for a jumper that offers a bit of sparkle. Examples includes something in a black or deep red color with a sophisticated sequin metallic bow.
Funny Christmas Jumpers
What’s Christmas without a touch of humor? You can bring it with a jumper that sends a funny message or tells a funny story. A picture of a cartoon character, like SpongeBob or the Grinch, is sure to get a laugh. You can also incorporate a funny message like “Gin-gle Bells” or “Yule Got This”.
Vintage Christmas Jumper
Christmas is a great time to be nostalgic. You can bring it by wearing a jumper that represents the styles of the 70’s, a decade known for its geometric designs and muted colors. You may also sport a jumper that features an old-fashioned Santa or some sort of throwback winter scene.
What you wear during Christmas will set the tone for the entire celebration. The ideas in this article will help you do it right with a great Christmas jumper. Which will you be sporting during the holiday season?
