It’s Christmas. Therefore, break out the ugly sweaters! Or not. I’m going to go with not. However, I do support expanding one’s sweater collection for the holidays.
Sparkle is key of course. That’s what is so great about the Alexander Wang Metallic boucle and mesh sweater. Divine with skinny black jeans and some killer heels, you’ll be prepped for get togethers of every kind and not freezing like every other girl at the party in a sleeveless top. It’s a fibre combo of rayon, cotton, metallic something or other, wool, nylon and spandex. That pretty much runs the gamut of fabrics and means yes, you’ll be dry cleaning if you spill your party punch.
No one does special, high quality, heavy duty sweaters like S.N.S Herning. Hey, they’re based in Denmark. They’ve got serious credibility. S.N.S relies on texture heavy patterns and amazing cable work to create thick, cozy masterpieces. I love the Nestor cardigan in indigo melange (so gorgeous) or for something more simplistic to throw on with jeans or tights, the Roentgen in maroon. I really like the shorter sleeves on this one and the shape of the overall sweater.
Rag & bone always knocks out a few amazing sweaters as well. Love the drape of the Barton top in a very holiday specific green. The stripes are subtle but add a casual feel. Also colour thematic is the Crosby Cardigan in wine. It’s pretty cropped and boxy for a cardigan, but the pockets are cute and the gold buttons are lovely. It’s 100 per cent wool, so bound to be super warm.
I’m not so much of a wrap sweater person, but the kimono cardigan by Vince does appear to be deliciously lux and have a lovely bulky look to curl up in.
Urban Outfitters is having a fantastic sale online, with sweaters checking in at $29. The Coincidence & Chance easy stitch pullover has a nice length to it (I like sweater hems to go past the waist of my jeans, personally). Love the orange and brown retro shades.
Happy Christmas. May you be as snug as a bug in a rug in your new holiday sweater.
