SO, how are you coping with the cold snap? For many of us the recent Arctic freeze will have meant rummaging through our drawers and discovering with dismay that most of our jumpers are covered in bobbles and holes.

Thankfully, it’s the perfect time to hit the shops and stock up on sweaters as the high street is brimful of wonderful winter woollies.

From big, bulky cable knits to soft, elegant cashmere (and everything in between) there’s a dizzying array of options to suit all budgets.

The other thing you’ll probably notice is the fact that Christmas jumpers are no longer the preserve of dads and uncles…indeed, the sheer number on offer make clear they are not only acceptable, but fashionable and even stylish.

With this in mind, maybe it’s time to celebrate your inner elf and wrap up yourself up in a slice of festive fun.

Here are some of our favourite jumpers this Christmas.
