For me Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a festive jumper. Whether you choose the all out bells and whistles approach or the more simplistic with a touch of sparkle, every girl needs a special jumper for Christmas Day. Over the years I have owned many a tacky reindeer or penguin jumper usually with googly eyes, pom-poms and of course a squeaky nose but these days I much prefer a more stylish approach with subtle sparkle, a fair-isle pattern or a cute character that I can also wear to work when someone inevitably suggests Christmas jumper day or layered up to finish my gift shopping.
