Trend of the week: Novelty Christmas jumpers

Holiday humour makes its seasonal cameo, says Annmarie O'Connor

Trend of the week: Novelty Christmas jumpers

Once a fad, now an annual fixture – where would we be without Christmas irony?

It appears that kitsch knits and silly slogans tees have gone from twee to party must-haves ever since their ironic redux in the mid-noughties.

Let’s be honest, we wouldn’t have it any other way!

So, if turkeys are party of your tradition, then give your serving of style a basting of yuletide fun with our nod to novelty!


GOOD TO GLOW: Light up the room with an LED Christmas jumper!

PARDON THE PARODY: Kitsch not your thing? Opt from a festive Fair Isle cardigan or an Intarsia knit sweater for more Aspen appeal.

DECK THE HALLS: Pair your Christmas slogan t-shirt with a Joanne Hynes collar and a leather skirt for a fashionable spin.

STOCKING STUFFERS: For a nod to the trend, show some Santa love on a sock or keep your head warm with a Christmas pudding hat!
