Some may say that holiday sweaters should only be seen at an “ugly Christmas sweater party” but this year that’s not the case. Fashion retailer Topshop is taking the lead in declaring it a holiday fashion essential. From black polka dots with a crowned white polar bear to a cream sweater with sweet holly detailing, Topshop even has a bejewelled sweater for a classier look.
Forget about the ugly sweaters we are used to buying at second hand stores, now it’s all about dressing up the holiday sweater. You can pair it with a cute flared skirt, coloured tights, and flat or high heel booties. Or how about adding a statement necklace or a knit scarf to pull the look together?
This holiday season leave the leggings and ugly baggy sweater in the closet and show your friends that comfy can look good and festive.
