From novelty knits to jumpers you'll want to wear all year round, we've found the best knitwear for the festive period

Christmas jumpers are a bit like bikinis – all the best styles seem to sell out early. Get ahead of the game this season with our edit of the best styles, whatever your budget.

If the thoughts of wearing a festive knit brings you out in hives, fear not – Christmas jumpers can actually be stylish. If you’re in the market for something other than crew neck styles emblazoned with Christmas trees or santa hats, you’ll find plenty of chicer styles in our edit. Chinti & Parker to Gant, there are plenty pf options that don’t look in the least tacky.

Yes, the prices may be higher, but the cashmere blend and potential to wear post-Christmas is huge, making this a worthy investment. We love Chinti & Parker’s star jumper and Toasts’ coral merino wool rollneck.

The high street is jingling with merry knitwear. Next and Marks & Spencer have offered up some super-sweet options, from sequin knits to classic Fairisle versions that won’t blow the budget, there’s lots on offer that look equally chic as the designer options.

For all things glitzy, check out Topshop’s embellished options, and Zara for their purse-friendly picks. Our favourite jumper in the under £100 category is Somedays Lovin Maple Jumper. It’s billowing sleeves are bang on trend, while the keyhole detail at the neckline tempers the volume to keep the over look elegant.

Meanwhile, Bella Freud has updated her achingly cool knitwear collection with some fun festive options, that will likely be the coolest knit you own this autumn. We’ve chosen the cult 1970 jumper, which has been jazzed up in a fine-knit metallic viscose blend. Pop this one on your dream Christmas gift list and start hinting heavily now.

With plenty more options to choose from, there’s something to suit every style and budget. Scroll on to find your dream Christmas knit…
