This year the woolly revolution that is Christmas Jumper Day is to be celebrated today on Friday 13th December, so time’s running out to get that hideous sweater in order.
When it comes to the Christmas jumper it’s all about the tack, so don’t be afraid to go all out with your seasonal knitwear this year. We’re thinking garish clashing colours, lashings of glitter and enough gold to make good King Midas proud. Add to that an unflattering shape, sprinkle on a little essence of 80s and you’re good to go.
To help you find the ultimate holiday horror we’ve compiled a list of our favourite Christmas jumpers for 2013. Just remember, it’s for the children.
1. Merry Christmas, Ya Filthy Animal, Internacionale, £15.99
Because you can’t have Christmas without Kevin McCallister.
2. Absolutely Cracking, River Island, £25
Probably the second best thing about Christmas. We love a cracker war, followed by a horrific joke and a novelty undersized sewing kit, don’t you?
3. The One With Moving Eyes
Ever wondered how Santa knows whether you’ve been bad or good?
4. Festive formalwear, cheesychristmasjumpers.com, £19.99
Wondering what to wear to that black tie meets Christmas 1989 event? This waistcoat, obviously.
5. Rudolph is a Little Unwell
We can only assume he’s been at the mulled wine again.
At least someone remembered his birthday.
7. The Christmas Crop, Primark, £12
The good people of Primark are offering a cropped take on the merry monstrosity, complete with 3D bows and baubles.
8. Pug Life, Brat & Suzie, £32
Christmas isn’t just for humans. We’re glad that Brat & Suzie have recognised this important fact.
9. Lights, Camera, Action, cheesychristmasjumpers.com, £49.99
This devilishly handsome knitwear comes complete with LED lights, red and white diamante baubles and embroidered stars. Snazzy.
Imagine a Christmas jumper with a roaring log fire which actually moves. It’s witchcraft, surely. And yet it’s true. Download the app that’ll make it all possible here.
