How to Wear Christmas Sweaters

Who said Christmas sweaters have to be ugly? I’m totally not against rocking one while out and about, and you shouldn’t be either. It’s the most wonderful time of year, so I’m seizing every opportunity to embrace the magic, especially with my wardrobe!

Below, I’ve created two different outfits featuring holiday sweaters that capture a festive aesthetic. Scroll down to see both:

Classic and Festive

Sweater, Jeans, Boots, Headband, Necklace, Earrings

If you just love the holiday season, you’ll be sure to feel extra festive in this outfit! Wear a classic red Christmas sweater with a pair of skinny jeans. Pair with desert ankle booties for a trendy twist, and layer with a cluster pearl necklace for a bit of sparkle. Complete the ensemble with a cute bow headband and pearl stud earrings – perfect for a traditional vibe.

Girly and Wintry

Girly girls – this seasonal look is just for you! Wear a pink reindeer sweater over a pair of leggings. Slip on a pair of cozy moccasins; this pair is lined with faux fur, which makes them perfect for snuggling up by the fire. Finish off this outfit with some wintry accessories, like snowflake earrings and a knit headband.

What do you think?

    I just did a post about the do’s and don’ts of embellished sweater that we see a lot of around this time of year. I also just uploaded pics of what I wore last night to family dinner and the fuzzy sweater I have on is going to be what I live in until it gets warm again. It is the softest and most comfortable thing I own.

    I love the first sweater! I know this is a bit off subject but can you do a post on what to wear on school own clothes days as some of my friends are in their last year of high school where obviously you have to wear school uniform and they have some own clothes days coming up before christmas and urgently need outfit ideas! Iam sure it will help me also as i have some school related stuff to go to. I love all the posts on what to wear!!!
