Christmas jumpers have started to overtake the turkey as the most iconic part of the festive season. From novelty knits to chic cashmere numbers, everyone you know will be donning their fave festive knits before you know it, so make sure you nab the hottest ones on the high street before anyone else.

From snowmen to elves and everything in between, this season all our fave high street stores have seriously delivered on fun prints. We’re crazy for BHS’ seriously cute animals and Debenhams’ amazing penguin print.

If you’re turning your back on novelty and are after something a little more luxe, then make your way to Marks & Spencer, who are killing it with their chic knits this year. From dainty polar bears to an amazing ice skating jumper, we think we’ll be wearing these ones way past New Year.

And if you’re in the market for a serious Christmas jumper investment, then Markus Lupfer is where you need to head. Amazing draping fairy lights and glitzy Christmas puddings make for some seriously glamorous sweaters which will have you reigning supreme on Christmas Jumper Day in the office.
