From Colin Firth's reindeer jumper in Bridget Jones' Diary to Kristin Davis' huge holly adorned number in Deck The Halls, the Christmas-themed jumper has become a staple for the festive season.
Even while the Australian summer makes the thought of putting on a novelty knit seem not-so-fun, variations of the quirky trend continue to dominate our wardrobes come Christmas—especially ones that are made in matching sizes and colours for our loved ones to enjoy.
Whether you're after a more timeless design with a Fair Isle print à la Reese Witherspoon and daughter Ava Phillipe or looking to add a bit of excitement through hilarious slogans and designs, including reindeer noses and gingerbread men—there's a bright, merry fashion piece just awaiting your Christmas cheer.
And while they've long been hailed as the 'ugly sweater', there's plenty of modern updates you'll have on hand for years to come. After all, nothing screams an end to the year quite like a Christmas jumper.
Below, we've rounded up a mix of chic and statement jumpers sure to make your Christmas season a little more jolly (even if you're going to sweat right through them).
