How to Style Christmas Sweaters for Your Holiday Event

Gift Exchange Festivities with Friends:

When you’re kicking it with friends, comfort is key. Grab your cheekiest Holiday sweater and pair it up with some cropped, distressed jeans. And if the weather is extra temperamental, throw on some black tights underneath. Lastly, grab some black, heeled booties and a neutral-colored trench coat to clean up the look. This is the perfect cute-meets-comfy look; it’s great for whatever fun festivities you have planned with your homies!

Fun Holiday Party with Family:

Dressy holiday parties and ugly Christmas sweaters? Sounds contradicting, right? WRONG! I am living for the fashion irony in this look! Instead of grabbing your sweater, try to horrendous Holiday sweater to pair with a black bodycon dress. Top the look off with some black, chunky stilettos and you’re ready rock. With this look, I’d recommend accessorizing with some dainty jewelry such as a minimal body chain or thin, delicate choker.

Formal Holiday Dinner:

If you have an extra formal dinner with family, I’d recommend opting for an oversized-chunky sweater in a bold holiday color. Then, pair it with a pleather skirt and some black, stiletto thigh-highs and, trust me, you will be SERVING LOOKS.

Nice Holiday Dinner:

Despite Holiday dinners usually taking place at home or a family member’s home, it doesn’t mean you still can’t dress to impress! Pairing a fitted off-the-shoulder sweater with a statement skirt will be the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. And if you want your skirt to truly be the focal point of your outfit, keep it minimal on the bottom with some simple, strappy stilettos.
