Whether you're into novelty knits or chic Fair Isle sweaters, Christmas jumpers are a bit of a must for the festive season. So why not get ahead of the game and start shopping for yours now? I've rounded up the best designer and high street buys below. But firstly...

What day is Christmas Jumper Day 2022?

Save The Children's Christmas Jumper Day is back on Thursday the 8th of December. You can sign up now for a fundraiser kit, or simply wear a jumper, donate to the cause and spread the word on social media. The more involved, the better.

Novelty Christmas jumpers

There are plenty of chic understated options out there for the minimalists at heart (keep scrolling to shop them). That said, if you really want to get into the spirit of things, then novelty Christmas jumpers are the way to go.

If you still want to tone things down a notch, simply wear yours with straight-leg jeans or velvet trousers for a simple party look, which can be dressed up or down with heels or trainers. 

Christmas Jumpers Primark

If you're looking for a budget-friendly option, no one does festive jumpers quite like Primark. My top tip is to shop in the men's section, as I find the quality is slightly better and I like the oversized look. Plus they don't sell out as fast.

This season Primark has brought out matching jumpers for the whole family, with prices starting from just £5. There are plenty of different themes available too.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
