Christmas jumpers are too much fun to be the preserve of children alone.

Why should the kids have all the fun? Just because we ladies are not privy to Christmas Jumper Day at school, we should not be excluded completely from the gang. Style it up. Style it down. Wear it to the office. Wear it to the gym. Wear it to a party. But whatever you do, make sure you wear a Christmas jumper (with pride) this year. Here are a few of our festive favourites.

SELFISH MOTHER FESTIVE CREW NECK JUMPER

An absolute pleasure to purchase, this slogan sweatshirt is perfectly on trend. It is sure to get you in a merry mood – and a share of its profits will be donated to charity. Watch out: you may find you want to wear it all year round.

HOLLIE REINDEERS SNOWFLAKE CHRISTMAS JUMPER

There is a pleasing touch of the scandi-chic about this little number. In fact, it is so acceptable that it barely counts as a Christmas jumper. It doesn’t sparkle or make a noise; it is just tasteful, toasty and totally festive.

Want to know the secret of a truly stylish grown-up’s Christmas jumper? You guessed it. It’s cashmere. This one from Boden blends merino wool and cashmere into the mix, raising the stakes ever so slightly. A touch of gold – in the antlers on the reindeer version and the top hat on the robin one – and red detailing on the neck, wrists and waistband make for some very natty knitwear.

FESTIVE INTARSIA JUMPER

This is a charming take on the Christmas jumper theme. With its super-soft cotton mix and adorbs terrier intarsia (which, by the way, is a term that keeps popping up and is a knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours), this sweater will help you rediscover your inner child.

Now, this one is a big – and we mean big – treat. But it’s totally standout and made almost completely of cashmere (with a bit of wool thrown in). We think you’ll treasure it forever. Best of all? No child nor man could ever mock it. Ever. Absolutely, definitely not.
