With the holiday season quickly approaching, so is the cold weather (eek!). Nothing prepares you more for the cold and screams CHRISTMAS TIME quite like a chunky knit, festive holiday sweater. For this week's weakness, festive/patterned sweaters definitely takes the cake, or shall I say pecan pie.
Hands down my favorite sweaters I own are from J. Crew. The classic cut, quality, and style they bring to my wardrobe continues to make me swoon over every holiday collection, especially when I can find them on sale. Below are some of my favorite (affordable) sweaters from their line this year.
Pairing this wool-knit sweater with a classic red flannel underneath makes for an easy and warm holiday party look. Adding dark wash jeans or a festive sequin skirt completes the look.
A more "dressed down" version of this look can be created when the sweater is paired with cinched sweatpants or leggings. Perfect for lounging around on a cold snowy winter day.
The similarity in style of this sweater provides the same style options as above, but can also be worn with patent leather leggings and heels to dress it up.
A simple black vest and scarf thrown over this sweater creates a warmer more functional look for activities in the snow and cold weather.
Although these sweaters are patterned they can be styled in ways that look effortless and simplistic. Hopefully these ideas will help you create your own holiday looks this season!
Find your joy. Then do it. Be it. Live it.
