In all likelihood, streets have already been illuminated festively since mid-November, so whether you like it or not, you can’t escape the fact that Christmas time is here. In addition to chocolate advent calendars, another seasonal fashion trend during this time of the year are garments with Christmas patterns and prints.

Reindeers are clearly the most popular pattern, combined with big snowflakes and Christmas trees. Other recurrent elements are snowmen and funiculars in snowy mountain landscapes. Main colors are dark blue, brown, red, white and dark green.

This kind of Christmas clothing usually pops-up at big retail chain stores a few weeks before Santa Claus makes his big appearance, including sweaters, cardigans, hats and scarves. Even though the prints can be very sweet, the ugly truth is that you would only wear this on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
