A wardrobe essential, the best Christmas jumper dresses can be styled up or down depending on the occasion, making them an excellent choice for the months ahead and a good choice for those who prefer a festive dress over the best Christmas jumpers.

For the most warming and luxurious Christmas jumper dresses, opt for cosy fabrications such as cashmere or wool, as these will also be breathable.
Christmas jumper dresses are ideal for those colder days when you need a quick and easy outfit to put together; pair with ankle boots for a daytime look or with tights, heels and statement accessories for the evening.
