Christmas jumpers don’t have to be hilariously hideous. I mean they totally can be. If that’s what you’re into then now is your chance to embrace the fabulously ugly festive sprit. But if your passion for pretties or your, let’s be honest, vanity means you’d rather wear something gorgeous than gaudy, thankfully there are some far more fetching options available. Just pick a pinup Christmas jumper from this adorable selection.
Unless you’re going for a slouchy 80s vibe, you want your festive knitwear to hug your body like it’s in mad, passionate love with it. Hemlines should end at your natural waistline and choose fitted styles for a 50s sweater girl look with added festive flair.
Here are three big fun ways you can look pinup perfect this festive season.
1. Overdose On Sparkles
If you’re a secret fan of the more-is-more approach to dressing then Xmas is the ideal time to indulge. Who says glitter is for after dark? There are some stunning lurex knits available at the moment, which are sure to brighten up even the dullest of winter days.
Behold, The Dita, Xmas edition.
Or why not smoulder in silver?
I invite you to swoon over the eye-popping colour and cheeky keyhole neckline.
At the top of my personal wish list, this gem from Hell Bunny is sparkly and seductive all at the same time. The snowflake fascinator is optional but totally works.
2. Embrace Embellishments
I’m talking beading, rhinestones, faux fur collars, the lot. Xmas is the time for dazzle dazzle and baubles aren’t just for your tree, baby.
For a classy Crimbo look…
Pearls are the ladylike way to bedazzle yourself.
Who can resist a faux fur trim? They’re luxurious, sophisticated and super snuggly.
3. Novelty Print Pinup Christmas Jumper Couture
And if you love a bit of kitsch, go for a classic Crimbo print in a 50s fit.
Like this ruby red reindeer option, which is perfect with matching lippie.
How adorable is this snowflakey blue number?
And finally, a cosy pinup Christmas jumper option for all the pinup Mrs Clauses out there.
