It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And since the festive season is well and truly upon us (hooray!), we’re turning our heads to the first big advent event – Christmas Jumper Day. On the 13th of December, people across the length and breadth of Britain will be dusting off their Christmas jumpers and wearing them in aid of Save the Children.
But, for those who fancy switching their knits or whose hole-ridden Christmas jumpers can’t hack another outing, it’s time to start searching for something new. It’s a difficult decision to make – picking a new jumper – we know. For example, do you go understated, garish or overboard on sequins? And if you’re wandering down the treacherous novelty route, how much is too much? But don’t sweat the small stuff, we’re pros at this Christmas thing. We’ve collated our favourite looks that’ll guarantee festive cheer. So have a peak and scroll away, but above all be sure to donate.
Starting with an old-school classic, who remembers our canine friend – the cocker spaniel? Detailed with delicately stitched embroidery and a jacquard knit, this dog jumper is crafted from hand-linked wool that’ll ensure your warmth. The applique snowflakes give it a glamorous edge, while the smiling spaniel even comes with textured fur.
A cute addition to all animal-inspired wardrobes, this robin jumper ticks all our boxes. With beautiful embroidery, eyelash yarn and hand-stitched sequins, there’ll be plenty of design details to discuss over your roast dinners. And with an adorable pudding design to complete your three-course meal, it’s super-soft, stylish and going straight to the top of our Christmas list…
Giving your wardrobe a new, quirkier update this festive period is our beloved avocado jumper. Expertly designed in-house, it’s enhanced with metallic thread embroidery, dazzling sequins and of course, two jovial avocados. But, that’s not all – their Santa hats have been given a three-dimensional feel with pom-poms.
Best Of The Pest
When you want to feel just as cosy as you are Christmassy, choose this fun racoon number. In a thick knit, this chunky jumper comes with contrast tipping on the cuffs – giving it a daintier edge – and a heavy gage for maximum snugness. The friendly racoon on the front gives it the jumper a bespoke and retro feel that’s always welcome at a Yumi party.
Standing the test of time is no problem for our (second) robin jumper. Cut in the classic shape that sits on the hips, it shows off a quartet of birds bringing their Christmas gifts. The sequin enhancements give it that glamorous finish that’s only rivaled by the bold colours.
Break The Ice
Get the best of both worlds (a thick finish and a playful look) with this animal jumper. With an unlikely friendship with the penguin and polar bear, it’s got shimmering snowflakes, a round neckline and a ribbed hem. This is one that’ll be a hit year on year…
