Christmas Jumper Day might be coming up, but that doesn’t mean you should limit your knitwear to novelty sweaters only.
While it’s always fun to wear kitschy pieces for the occasion, opting for knits you can wear more than once a year is a more sustainable, cost-efficient and stylish choice, and one I always choose.

You can still raise money for a good cause, but you don’t have to wear those cringey Mark Darcy-style reindeer jumpers that just take up space in your wardrobe for the rest of the year.
It helps that this season, we’re veering away from dark hues and bearing witness to an explosion of colour, including fuchsia pink, neon yellow, bright green and bold orange.
Both designer fashion and the high street are abundant with chic options, from Aprés ski-inspired fairisle knits from Molly Goddard, Maje, Boden and Zara, to embellished knits from fashion forward brand Uterqüe and high street hero & Other Stories.
The best part? You can hold onto them for years, so you’ll always have an option for the holiday season without having to shell out more.
If you’re going to use your new festive knit to support the children’s charity Save The Children, you can register for the cause and find out more details about Christmas Jumper Day here.
And of course, don’t forget to pick out a jumper for the occasion. Here are some of my top picks from Zara, & Other Stories, Boden, Coggles and more.
