From rowdy lads on their annual ’12 pubs of Christmas crawl’ in matching versions, to that one person in the office who literally counts down the days until they can don their annual fave, come December whether you love them or loathe them you just can’t avoid Christmas jumpers.
But forget itchy jumpers adorned with giant Xmas puddings or gaudy slogans, this year there’s a festive knit filling our Insta feed and it’s so chic, it’s making us re-think our usual zero-tolerance approach to the festive genre.
Say hello to Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bear Jumper. Spotted on everyone from Zendaya, to Chiara Ferragni, and Camille Charriere to Jim Chapman, this knit is creating a serious enviable fashionable festive fix.
Available in two styles, either with the adorable bear dressed in signature Polo style, think jeans, an American flag sweater and loafers or with the bear’s modern take on formal wear – hello sequinned tux jacket and snazzy trousers – both have plenty of preppy appeal.
Featuring a blend of wool, cashmere and mulberry silk you wont’ have to worry about that horrible scratchy feeling that usually comes with Xmas jumpers plus it’s breathable meaning it’s perfect for taking you from day to night. Whether teamed with velvet trousers and a spiky heel for a New Year’s eve soirée or simply thrown on with jeans and a chunky boot for post festive lunch strolls, this knit is set to become the hardest working item in your wardrobe this season.
