I love any reason to wear Christmas sweaters. Whether it be a work party, family get together or just because it’s Christmas and it’s the right thing to do. I love them. This shouldn’t just be a party theme, it should be a requirement for the entire month of December. I also think Christmas music should start when summer ends…making us wait til after Thanksgiving is rude.
2. Ugly Christmas Sweater Party
That’s a mouthful, but it’s one of the most popular themes of the season. I personally don’t find any Christmas sweater ugly. They’re all beautiful in their own way…am I taking this too far? Here’s a few different ways I like to style Christmas sweaters.
I love the casual distressed jeans with an old, faded and worn sweater look. Layer a white cami underneath, simple stud earrings and go with a cute messy bun or a loose pony tail. Another cute accessory would be some oversized glasses, whether you wear prescription or not, they’re usually an easy find at Forever 21 or H&M. Low top white converse go with any denim, but I think they pair perfectly with cropped boyfriend jeans.
Next up, I chose to glam up this adorable black and white Christmas sweater with a skater skirt. I love the flare of skater skirts and they’re so flattering on all different body types. A black and white outfit always needs a pop of color, so I chose red heels with a cute bow on the back to “tie” (get it? Haha ok moving on) into the Christmas spirit. Accessorize with a chunky chain link statement necklace, gold cuffs and assorted gold and rhinestone mid rings. Finish this look off with a chain link cross body bag and a cranberry red manicure.
I had to find a boot look. I get my love of boots from my mom who has literally collected boots since I was in elementary school, and now my two year old daughter has the same obsession. The boots I am loving right now are the ugg type boots with laces. They’re nice and soft and warm inside, but lace up like your typical snow boot, and stop perfectly just above the ankle. I am in love. Neutrals pair really well with darker denim, so I’d go for either skinny or boot cut dark wash jeans. This is a very “cutesy” sweater, so I think I’d stick with that “cute, innocent” theme and just do a ponytail with a bright red bow.
Christmas sweaters come in all different styles and can be found anywhere from your local thrift store, to Macy’s and Nordstroms. If it’s too boxy, add a thin belt to cinch your waist. If you’re not happy with the neck line, cut it and make it an off the shoulder sweater. If it’s real old school and has shoulder padding, go ahead and remove that ASAP, roll up the sleeves a bit and maybe wear your hair down if the shoulders still look bulky. You can’t go wrong with anything Christmas themed! Have fun with it and most of all enjoy being in the Christmas spirit!
