What would the holidays be without the holiday sweaters? Whether you’re going to a tacky sweater party or a regular holiday party, we see a variety of holiday sweaters throughout the season. The question is, how do you style a holiday sweater so you don’t end up looking like a holiday-crazed grandma?
This week’s CollegeFashionista does great job of incorporating some holiday cheer into her ensemble. She uses layers to give her outfit a casual vibe. She wears a chambray button-up under her holiday sweater. She gives her outfit a pop of color by wearing a red quilted vest from J.Crew over her sweater. On bottom, she wears black leggings and tall black boots. She accessorizes with a clear-jeweled statement necklace and earrings. This look could easily be achieved for a casual holiday get together.
No matter the occasion for your holiday sweater, tacky or not, there’s always a way to make it look fashionable. Give your sweater a rock-and-roll vibe by pairing it with a leather jacket and black skinny jeans. Dress it up by wearing it with a skirt, tights and high heels. Fashionistas could also put a twist on the infamous shiny holiday outfit by wearing the sweater with metallic pants. If that look is too bold, try incorporating metallic accessories into your ensemble. Michael Kors has a great selection of metallic heels and high tops to choose from.
