NOVELTY KNITS: Get set to jingle those jumpers,
What’s that smell? It’s the waft of cheese as the silly season serves up that sartorial iconoclast we all love to hate: the Christmas jumper. Once derided, now celebrated (well, sort of), the kitsch knit has become an ironic wardrobe staple since its recent renaissance. From stock Santa and reindeer motifs to more elaborate LED-lit bauble beauties, the approach is carte blanche, provided one’s tongue resides firmly in the cheek. Find your cracker and lay it on thick, folks. ‘Tis the season, after all!
