Three ways: The Xmas jumper
By Luke Raymond, 26 November 2014
Like mince pies, scarfing down a whole Chocolate Orange and your ma stressing out over the gravy, the Christmas jumper has claimed its rightful place as a festive essential.
Always relied on to bring a bit of festive cheer to proceedings, here we show you how to make your Xmas top work for all occasions, from a Christmas Eve catch up with mates to that post-dinner sofa slump. Oh, and as a bit of a warm and fuzzy bonus, £4 from every sale of this particular jumper – complete with be-scarfed snowman – will be donated to The ASOS Foundation.
A smart bomber jacket in navy wool and textured navy formal joggers bring a sporty-but-smart edge to your new festive friend. Slip a white shirt underneath, finish with some slick trainers and be prepared to inspire envy for both your fashion skill and Xmas spirit.
Despite eating Christmas dinner at home, there’s always the pressure to scrub up. A crisp white shirt and black skinnies are classically smart and let the jumper shine in all its gleeful glory.
Not quite ready to let go of the snowman? Have no fear – the Christmas jumper can go on a post-dinner stroll or trip to the boxing day match/boozer. Off comes the white shirt and on goes an on-trend padded blazer in grayscale check. Indigo-wash skinnies are an all-occasion go-to, while a grey and black printed scarf adds fashion kudos and essential warmth.
