I am finding it a little weird that my love for festive novelty jumpers isn’t being laughed at this year, rather than everyone feeling it is a little naff, it seems everyone is getting in on the act. A couple of weeks ago I shared the Net-a-Porter collection of designer Christmas jumpers, which I have to admit I am still thinking of splurging on, but I felt that I should look at more affordable options.

Oasis I have been after a sheer blouse for a while, and this long-sleeved shirt adorned with a safari inspired spot print is perfect. Pair over a plain vest, and team with jeans or skinny trousers.
