Celebrity Christmas Jumper Fashion 2012

Celebrities wearing Christmas jumpers They used to be something knitted by granny which would be quickly resigned to the back of the wardrobe... but now the knitted Christmas jumper is making a comeback!

Celebrities, fashion experts and high street shoppers have all been spotted wearing jumpers adorned with festive symbols. High street shops have reported massive sales of the jumpers, with some festive knits flying off the shelves within minutes. The fashion elite have jumped on the bandwagon as you can see from the snaps.

The recent surge in popularity could be due to the famous faces who have been snapped wearing jumpers adorned with festive patterns. These Christmas jumpers have become the trend amongst celebrities from Fearne Cotton to JLS and McFly, while cast members of TOWIE have also been snapped in them. Kanye West and Snoop Dogg have even been getting in the festive mood.

Popstar Justin Bieber was also seen wearing a Christmas cardigan - Although this was hardly knitted by granny. His ‘red Junya Watanabe Nordic Varsity Jacket’ reportedly cost a rather unfestive £1,000.

Other celebs to adopt the fashion include Matt Damon, who wore a very colourful sweater complete with 3D Santa heads on the sleeves while appearing on the Today show in America. And singer Pink was seen out shopping in one.

It’s all a long way from the day Mark Darcy caused hilarity by turning up at a Christmas party wearing a reindeer jumper in the film Bridget Jones’s Diary – this year he would be considered a firm fashion follower.
