Five Classic Sweaters for the Holidays

I don’t know about you, but the first day of December marks the season when I start to wear sweaters all day, everyday. Sweaters are perfect for the cold weather here in New England because they’re super cozy and warm. Since it’s not socially acceptable to wrap myself into a blanket burrito around town, I figured the next best thing would be to wear sweaters, right?!

Today, I wanted to share five of my favorite classic holiday sweaters to wear in the winter.

White cable-knit sweater

This Ralph Lauren cable-knit sweater is actually a hand-me-down from my mom’s friend, but it’s a classic that I could see myself wearing years from now. Not only are cable-knits considered timeless, but white matches everything and reminds me of fresh snow!

Ralph Lauren has a women’s version and a men’s version!

Chunky sweater

Chunky sweaters are probably the coziest of all sweaters because there’s so much material! Even though the sleeves on my bell-sleeve turtleneck from Hollister are super long, I still love wearing it because it’s so comfortable!

Buy my chunky turtleneck sweater here — on clearance! Or this similar one from Urban Outfitters here.

Mockneck crop sweater

This sweater from Hollister is the newest in my collection and possibly my favorite of this year. White varsity stripes are a classic look and the material is uber soft. Deep colors like maroon work well with other winter tones like navy and forest green.

Fair isle sweater

My fair isle sweater was a steal because I had bought it for less than $10 on super clearance in the middle of summer. Now that’s how you score a deal! Fair isle patterns are synonymous to the holiday season, which is why everyone should own at least one fair isle sweater in their closet.

I love the look of this one from Urban Outfitters, but it is cropped which doesn’t make sense to me. On the other hand, Abercrombie and Fitch have super cute and classy fair isle sweaters here!

Ugly Christmas sweater

Lastly, I wanted to throw in the ugly Christmas sweater! You’re bound to be invited to an ugly Christmas sweater party at least once in your life and you don’t want to be that party pooper that doesn’t dress to code. Also, ugly holiday sweaters are super fun! Did you know that they make ugly sweaters for couples? YES with two head holes — they exist! Scroll through the widget below and you’ll get what I mean.
