As you are probably aware last Friday was Save the Children Christmas Jumper day, well I don’t have a typical Christmas jumper, but I am now the owner of what I like to call a festive jumper.
Fashion World got in touch and asked if I would like to review something from their knitwear range. I did fall in love with a Christmas jumper which was out of stock, so I went for the next best thing a red cable knit jumper!
Red Cable Jumper – Fashion World*
Checkered Dress – George at ASDA
I have the jumper in a 20/22 and I’m generally a size 20 so it’s quite nice and roomy(perfect for when I stuff my face with food over the next two weeks), I would say that it is as true to size as dual sizing can be. There’s just a cable knit pattern on the front of the jumper rather than it all being done in cable knit, I think I prefer it this way as it’s not too big and bulky.
I’ve worn it work and found it to be really nice and cosy first thing in a morning when the heating ahs yet to kick in. I also found that I didn’t get too warm in it either, so I’m not sure what it does to keep me at a perfect body temperature but it’s bloody magical!! I make no promises that it’ll do the same for you, I am known for not noticing how warm it gets.
I’ve also been having a play around with the Fashion World Merry Knit-mas app, where you can dress yourself or your friends up in knitwear and share the pictures either on Facebook/Twitter/Email or download them to keep for yourself.
Here’s my picture, which isn’t the best as I used one of my selfies, but you get the idea. I think it’s a fab way to add a little fun to Christmas. Plus if you’ve forgotten to send someone a Christmas card, make a picture of you both in festive knitwear and send it by email, you’ll very quickly be forgiven!!
Have you got a festive jumper this year?
