Designers Reinvent The Holiday Sweater

You know how every Christmas, you receive at least one hand-knitted sweater from an elderly loved one, like your grandmother? It usually doesn’t go with anything else in your closet, thus you end up wearing it only on Christmas Day, before it winds up somewhere in the darkest depths of your wardrobe, never to see the light of day again.

Well, this year, designers have come up with the most chic alternative to grandma’s knitted jumpers: Philip Lim, Moschino, Stella McCartney, Markus Lupfer and many others have prepared a set of adorable, yet ultra-chic holiday sweaters. Who says dressing cozily for winter can’t be super stylish?

With reindeer motifs, gingerbread men prints, Christmas tree decorations, tinsel patterns and even Santa Claus’ jolly face, the adorable designer holiday sweaters are sure to steal your heart this season.

Pair your designer holiday sweater with skinny trousers, for a cozy, laid-back look, with a chic pencil skirt for an office-appropriate outfit or with a fun skirt for a romantic Christmas date.
