If, like me, you are currently on the hunt for that must have festive jumper, then you will also be aware that time is rapidly running out. When browsing online, one instantly becomes inundated with Fair Isle offerings and gimmicky snowmen jumpers.
Now, not only will the aforementioned snowman jumper fail to display any true seasonal style, it will also be banished to the back of the winter wardrobe after being worn only once on the big day; enter the Rickinson Blanket Sweater from Vivienne Westwood.
With a bold and festive palette of gold, red and white this statement jumper not only oozes serious style, it is also the perfect piece to carry you through the rest of the winter season. Its vivid design and exaggerated neckline give it the distinct Westwood edge, whilst the wool and mohair blend provides it with a sense of luxury as well as warmth.
The unique mix of colours also separates this piece from others on offer this time of year, and although distinct, complement each other perfectly to create a wearable garment. Worn with restrained dark indigo or black denim this piece will do all the talking!
So when you are frantically running around this week in search for ‘that jumper’, be sure to think outside the box when it comes to colour and design.
Available now over on the Vivienne Westwood website.
