Over the last few years, the Christmas jumper has lost its tongue-in-cheek irony and is now a legitimate piece in the winter wardrobe. The look is more paired back and chic, and has lost the garish novelty factor, a very good thing in my book.
Matches have collaborated with Save The Children, producing a line of festive knitwear by Christopher Kane, Charlotte Olympia, Henry Holland, Giles Deacon and Bella Freud. £100 from the sale of each jumper goes to the charity. Matches is on the expensive end of the scale, but there are plenty of affordable options around. I think Christmas jumpers look great with a pleated midi-skirt or skinny leather pants.
