It’s Christmas Jumper Day 2019! Christmas Jumper Day is a fundraising event created by the charity, Save The Children. The charity encourages people to “make the world better with a sweater” and to donate to the important work that the charity does to improve the lives of children everywhere. The JewelStreet office is looking very festive today, with a colourful and sparkly array of jumpers! Bringing it back to jewellery, have you ever wondered what accessories to wear with a Christmas jumper? Choose your signature sweater style and we’ll tell you what jewellery you should be wearing.
The traditional Winter knit
You love Christmas but you like to be subtle with your style, which is why you’ve chosen a traditional winter knit. This style is a lowkey Christmas jumper, allowing you to be festive but to also keep your style basic. However, when it’s Christmas, you need to have a bit of sparkle to capture the essence of the season - it’s all about balance! Brighten up your knitwear with a pair of colourful statement earrings. Vibrant earrings will draw attention to you, even if you’re not wearing the showiest of jumpers.
The light up jumper
You’re all about the merry and bright part of Christmas! When it comes to jumpers that sing or light up, you’ve got to keep the fun going with equally bright accessories - go hard or go home, right? Wear all the festive colours with this jumper. Red and green, gold and silver. If your look can’t be seen from the North Pole, it’s just not bright enough!
The OTT look
You love this time of year so much that your jumper looks like Christmas has thrown up on it! You’ve definitely gone over-the-top and that should be the star of the show. Again, you need to balance it out. Much like accessorising a plain jumper with sparkly jewellery, do this the other way around by pairing an OTT jumper with simple accents. Pick silver jewellery, like a subtle pendant necklace or a sleek choker. This adds extra pizzazz to your look but also blends into the background to make your jumper the main attraction.
The message sweater
You want to keep it simple but still want to be festive and merry. There’s nothing like a ‘wordy’ jumper this season, whether it’s the standard ‘Merry Christmas’ or a fun and festive pun. Keep it classic with gold and pearls. Gold is a statement jewellery metal but around Christmas time, it gets a new lease of life. Pearls are vintage and glamorous so mix the two together for a wonderful combination. Try a simple pearl necklace and stack your bracelets high, alternating between gold chains and pearl studded bangles.
The star pattern
You wanted your Christmas jumper to be an ode to the real story of Christmas. Stars are as festive as they are traditional. A starry jumper works for any festive occasion, from carol singing to an office party. Stick to the star theme and go all out with star accessories. Whether you’re emulating the star atop a Christmas tree or the Star of Bethlehem, stars are the perfect symbols this season.
