As we head into this chilly season, many holidays are upon us. Halloween is right around the corner, and before you know it we will be putting out the cookies for Santa Claus. I love the holiday season. I love it as much as I love Fall style. So it shouldn’t surprise you that I have found four amazing and cheesy holiday sweaters that I would love to sport this holiday season.
Keep in mind that the popular holidays (for me, at least) are Halloween and Christmas (duh). So these picks are geared more towards those fabulous holidays.
Pumpkin Love’ Pullover, Wildfox Couture, $98.00
Okay, so yes…almost $100 is a tad too much to spend on a sweater with a jack’o lantern facial expression on it. Which is obviously why I have not purchased it. I do hope this comes down a little bit in price. In fact, I got so obsessed with this sweater one Sunday afternoon that I scoured the internet trying to find an equivalent for less money. Oh how I dream of the days I don’t have to spend money on textbooks and calculators (yes…I actually bought a calculator on Monday…worst purchase of my life). This sweater is so adorable…it speaks for itself.
Long-sleeve Red Nose Reindeer Christmas Sweater, JC Penney, $24.99
Okay, so some may classify this as an “ugly” sweater and to those people I say, “look the other way”. I am crazy for Christmas. Christmas movies, eggnog, cinnamon everything, peppermint white mochas (delicious!!), the whole she-bang. So I can rock a Rudolph sweater if I want to (and I will…). Being an aspiring KG teacher, I have really stocked up on my animal motif sweaters (excuse the very old post link) and let me tell you, they are a complete hit with children. In my last placement, I got many compliments on my owl animal motif sweater (even tied into their bird unit).
Sequin Penguin Pullover Sweater, Macy’s, $36.99
Yup, another “ugly Christmas sweater” that I would proudly rock. Penguins are cool…just admit it. And this penguin is extra cool because he has sparkly earmuffs on. Automatically, I want this in my closet (and if it came in red, that would even cooler). To be honest, although the penguin is extremely cute, the polka dots are what drew me in…shocker. I actually have a grey polka dot patterned sweater like this from Old Navy sans the hip penguin. Can I order this now?
Slouched Snowflake Intarsia Sweater, Townsen, $49.99
No joke, when my Mom sees this post, she is probably going to text me and ask me where this sweater is from. How can you blame her? It’s a gorgeous sweater. I love the material used too – intarsia is so soft and warm for winter. I could definitely cozy up in this ribbed intarsia sweater over the holidays (just give me a mug of hot chocolate, a furry puppy on my lap and a fireplace). I am really big on snowflakes…I love the pattern and I love when they are used in sweater motifs. This one is cream too (I love the colour cream…)
Well, there are my picks for holiday sweaters. You may think some of these are crazy, but I would legitimately wear all of them. If I wear a sweater with an owl on it (and I have), I will wear a reindeer, crazy hipster penguin and a jack’o lantern. Why wouldn’t I? They are so cute!!
