Christmas jumpers 1, onesies 0

Why sweating it out should eclipse last year’s abominable trend.

I’ve never been a fan of a onesie so it comes as great relief that this year, instead of the romper suits for, supposedly, fully grown humans, the biggest trend in terms of festive fashion will be the novelty jumper.

There are loads of them out there.

Santas, reindeer, Christmas trees, snowflakes, candy canes, the lot – you name it, one retailer has wacked it on a jumper, perhaps given it a bit of sparkle or a bobble or ten, and popped it in store. And I can only see one reason for this – despite apparently being dead cosy, the onesie is one style compromise too far towards comfort, whereas these kitsch sweaters are, conceivably, OK to wear outside, giving them a shelf life of beyond just Christmas morning.

Shoppers may have to be brave to wear some of them, but they’ve got all the ingredients of a Christmas number 1.
