Amid a sea of Fairisle prints and LED lights, it can be hard to find your perfect Christmas jumper.
Over the past few years, festive knitwear has gone from cheesy (see Bridget Jones' Diary, the book), to ironic (see Bridget Jones' Diary, the film), to Christmas Day essential.
Almost every store and fashion brand has their own take on the classic Christmas jumper, and there's a style to suit every taste – whether you're dressing up, keeping it casual, or going for full-on novelty value.
Read on for our guide to the best women's Christmas jumpers of 2017...
The folksy Christmas jumperStylish Scandinavians understand the value of a chic Christmas jumper better than anyone. But while we once took our inspiration from the chunky knits of Sarah Lund (The Killing), now the most stylish Scandi jumpers are fitted and minimalist. This Hobbs jumper combines understated colours with a folksy pattern that somehow looks both modern and traditional.
The Glam Christmas JumperWho says Christmas jumpers have to be red and green? This pastel pink sweater would get anyone into the festive spirit, while the sequinned pudding motif adds a touch of glam.
The 3D Christmas JumperThe best Christmas jumpers are a little bit different, with one defining feature that helps to set them apart from all the rest. For this Topshop jumper, it's the 3D wreath motif that makes this sweater great fun to wear.
The Cool Girl's Christmas JumperIf you're too cool for Christmas jumpers – think again... Minimalist, cropped, and in the 'it' colour of the season (burgundy), this Missguided sweater will convert even the most committed Scrooges.
The Bohemian Christmas JumperThis sweet reindeer sweater was a sell-out for Joules last year, so it's no surprise to see it back on the shelves for Christmas 2017. Everything about it is bohemian and chic – from the muted grey and pink colours, to the quirky embellishments, and asymmetrical cuffs. The perfect Christmas jumper for yummy mummies and sophisticated hippies.
The Slogan Christmas JumperSlogan sweaters have been the surprise hit of 2017, and there are some amazing versions being released in time for Christmas. We love this 'Express Your Elf' jumper, that will go with absolutely anything, and remind us of our favourite Christmas movie...
The Timeless Christmas JumperChristmas wouldn't be Christmas without a snowflake and reindeer pattern. This red and white jumper is just begging to be worn beside a log fire, while wrapping and unwrapping presents.
The 'Not a Christmas Jumper' Christmas JumperYou don't need embroidered reindeer to make your jumper Christmas-ready. This subtly sparkling metallic Ted Baker jumper is fabulously festive, but stylish enough to wear all winter long. Proof that less is sometimes more.
The Fashion-Forward Christmas JumperIt's no mean feat to design a sweater that is both fashion-forward and Christmassy, but this Wildfox jumper is up to the task! The star-spangled pattern is both on-trend and festive, while the pale lilac and super-soft knit keeps everything super-luxe.
There's no shortage of Christmas jumpers to keep you cosy and chic this festive season. Find a style that you love and wear it with everything from now until New Year's Eve.
