We all have one: the customary holiday-themed jumper that every season serves the familiar red-and-green Christmas palette, most likely with a Norwegian-inspired print or two. However, not as far as Stella McCartney is concerned.
The designer has taken the humble jumper and made it even more of a statement piece; just a glance at her irresistible fluorescent reindeer number is enough to entice even the toughest festive-knit sceptics. Woven in mouth-watering pastel hues of eggshell blue, fizzy yellow and cotton candy pink, the jumper is a playful dayglo option for holiday get-togethers.
Paired with a pleated skirt or neutral trousers, it is sure to steal envious glances from across the room, and will have even Bridget Jones nodding with approval. With an intarsia and wool-blend texture and hallucinogenic pops of colour this knit will carry you beyond New Year’s fireworks and into a spring of picnics, barbecues and festival fun. Forget candy canes and mince pies; this is what our sweet tooth is craving.
