Wrap up from the cold in our pick of the chunky knits, sparkly sweaters and novelty Christmas jumpers to fill your wardrobe with this season, from brands including Bella Freud, Whistles and Polo Ralph Lauren.
With a distinct chill in the air as we officially enter December (we know, we can’t believe it either) we're fully embracing the comforting, festive feeling of wrapping up in a warm, cosy jumper to survive the freeze at this time of year — oh, and roast dinners help too. From chunky knits and sparkly sweaters, to novelty Christmas jumpers, there's a plethora of knitwear to choose from, and with countless frosty mornings to contend with, you'll need a number of go-tos to keep you warm _and_ provide outfit options. For a classic jumper that ticks all the boxes, and can be worn with jeans, dresses and even pyjamas come Christmas Eve — opt for Scandinavian Fair Isle styles, like [GANT]('s patterned navy jumper, something soft and chic like [Joseph]('s Pearl Wool Knit, or go for a playful logo, like [Polo Ralph Lauren]('s USA flag jumper. If head-to-toe sequins aren't really your thing, knitwear with a touch of shimmer is a great way to pull off grown-up party dressing. With stylish slogans a-plenty, [Whistles]( and [Bella Freud]( jumpers are always a good idea, and this 1970 Rainbow Jumper and Star Gazing Knit are an elegant way to add sparkle without resembling a disco ball. Whether it's in anticipation of Christmas Jumper Day on the 14th, or just to cheer yourself up in the cold, grey weather, a winter wardrobe wouldn't be complete without a fun, novelty knit, like [Warehouse]('s adorable Christmas jumpers or [Barbour]('s cute Snowman Sweater. Or if you want to head down the more refined festive route, cosy up in one of Chinti & Parker's gorgeous cashmere knits that are the perfect investment for seasons to come.
