You most certainly wouldn’t know it from the weather (it is currently 15 degrees) but Christmas is quickly approaching. A time for family and loved ones (bags included), Christmas is usually when I make my yearly pilgrimage back to Australia for a hot Summer Christmas. But not this year. Deciding to have my first British Christmas in 6 years, I was all excited for snowy days, hot drinks and open fires… Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the plan according to mother nature. But one festive tradition I was not looking forward to was the dreaded Christmas Jumper… I just don’t understand novelty clothing.
But don’t get me wrong, I love a good knit – especially on Christmas Day when you need something forgiving (hides whatever you have eaten that day), practical (I’ve got places to go, people to see and don’t need creases) and stylish. So with stylish being the operative word I’ve decided to take a stand against Christmas jumpers and their garish motifs and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Why purchase a jumper that has such a limited lifespan when instead you can buy (or give!!!) a lovely Lacoste knit from British based boutique Woodhouse that takes you up to Christmas and far beyond?
