Morning my lovely FFF's. It's bloody chilly out there today. Just looked out the window to check my little Fiat 500 and there is frost on his fabric roof. I might have to go down tonight and wrap him in a fleece blanket. Don't want my baby getting a chill!
So, it being the 1st December and darn cold to boot, what better subject for today's blog post than the humble Xmas jumper!
They used to be the stuff of novelty and naffness but they've become seriously stylised over the last few seasons and there is a whole bevy of fabulous options on the high street that you can snuggle into for a mufty day at work. (if you do want oodles of cheese though there are plenty of crap ones still on offer!)
The jumper is from Marks and Spencers and is super warm and cosy. It's got a lovely oversized cowl neck and nice little silver balls stitched into the pattern to give it just a hint of Xmas sparkle. Its made of Fair Isle wool so lovely and soft to wear. Its a little bit "ski lodge" and has got me thinking about booking a snow board trip this Winter!!! I've teamed mine today with a pair (Natch! Don't I always) skinny biker style jeans in a soft grey colour from The Kooples and my favourite Isobel Marant high tops trainers! I've also got my M&S thermal vest on! Oh the glamour!
Perfectly fusing fashion with frump don't you think?
New kid on the block, Neon Marl, has a gorgeous range of sweats that you can fully customise for yourself or a loved one this Xmas Season. All are hand printed and exclusively made to order.
The brains and beauty behind the brand is one of my very own favourite FFF's so please support her! She's a former textiles supremo for brands like Karen Millen and Whistles so knows a thing or too about fabrics and design. She's also a super hard working mum to two gorgeous boys, Louis and Theo. Here at #fabfiternity we do love to support our female friends. Like I said before, its ALL about your #localgirlgang.
Check out her Instagram and stand out from the crowd in your stylish Xmas top. Orders need to be in before 12th December to guarantee Xmas delivery. Details of how to order are in her insta.
Moving back to the high street there are just tones of great options to be had. I've curated a few of my own favourites to give you some seasonal inspiration.
As you'd expect from Top Shop, they have a great range of stylish and novelty jumpers on offer. This is really cute! Featuring a series of sequinned gingerbread men and coming in at £36.00
I think this one is just darling! Its a Bambi print cream marl sweatshirt from online store, Sugarhill boutique at £44.00.
This is another super cute one from Joules in John Lewis. I know someone who would just love this one. Great for all the doggy lovers out there.
Another favourite which really does bring together style with a seasonal vibe is this totally gorgeous and bang on trend Somedays Loving Maple Jumper from Zalando at £69.99 with its fab billowing sleeves.
One final totally outrageous, completely ridiculously priced but stunning sweater, selected just because I do love a bit of luxury! Check out this gothic inspired, almost regal styled wool blend sweater from Gucci emblazoned with pearl, crystals and embroidery. Now this really would look divine with my leather trousers and a pair of killer black patent heels!
So there you have it, my chic-tastic guide to rocking this seasons Crimbo sweater!
