(Vaguely) stylish Christmas jumper?

(10 Posts)

I am a size 20 and am hoping to find a Christmas jumper that does not make me look like a charicature?
Needed for Christmas jumper day at work ( work with children so need to join in the fun)!
Ideally I'd like something long, not too chunky (a long sleeved t shirt would be even better), not too red and cheap!
Have trawled the Internet but am losing the will to live!
Any help please?

[[ these] are cute. I tried them on in the shop but couldn't really justify the spends on a christmas jumper. Really tempted by the navy one still, though.

TK Maxx gets them in sometimes, I bought this last week and it is lovely smile

There are a few others, just need to browse for them.

Swim your way through the polyester tents, to Evans - where I think this is quite festive but tasteful.

I don't think it is worth paying much for a christmas jumper/tshirt as it won't get much wear... I have been wondering about just getting a plain long-sleeved t-shirt (or using an old one) and adding an iron-on transfer/patch or two. Looks like you can get some nice ones online, or I expect fabric shops might have them? I like this one:

Could be a good way to get something a bit more subtle and stylish, but not too pricey?

I bought 2 from asda, both a really fine knit. My children have complained they're not cheesy enough, I think they're flattering for my ginormo-boobs.
Also had the bling Christmas pudding one. Can't wait to wear them grin.

Could you wear a black sparkly jumper and Christmas scarf or pin accessories on (baubles etc)

That's what I did last year as I couldn't find anything and it looked like I was joining in and got wear out of the jumper after christmas

ALL FROM NEXT and all available in your size smile

Or my personal favourite (though one or two reviews rec sizing down a size)!:
