Usually we whole-heartedly embrace the Christmas Jumper, but it won’t be long until my son is officially ‘too cool’ to wear a big jumper with a snowman and flashing lights on it (he is nearly a tween after all), so here are some alternative ideas for wearing this Christmas. Some aren’t jumpers at all (wait till you see the amazing Candy Cane cocktail hat!) and some are ironic or alternative Christmas jumpers, but all of them give you a different way of expressing your Christmas spirit through your wardrobe over the coming weeks! Which of my top 10 is your favourite?

A perfect blend of kitch, comic superheroes and Christmas, what more could you wish fore. Plus, the large Batman logo is large enough to make it clear that you’re wearing something cooler than the classic Christmas jumper! Batman Official Christmas Sweater from Bay 57.
