Finding the Perfect Holiday Sweater

Words: Caroline Lawrence

Don’t know what to wear this season?  Wondering how to stand out at your next holiday party, but not sure how to make a festive fashion statement?  How fortunate for you that the Wingspan Online has published this article on trendy holiday sweaters, solving all your sartorial dilemmas.

Each year, these warm, woolly creations make an appearance as our minds start to swing into the holiday mode.  But how can you find a sweater that meets your sense of style?

Marketing editor, Kris Berry muses, “I look at the patterns, you know, I like to find one that evokes the holiday spirit and, you know, really celebrates joy, peace and family.” Though he currently does not own any of these holiday masterpieces, the Wingspan thinks he would look particularly spiffy in a bright red one to match his colorful personality.

Whether you’re dreaming of a white Christmas sweater, or a green one, or a red one, or even a blue one, the part that makes the statement is undeniably the pattern. These fun holiday toppers come in a plethora of different designs. Popular motifs include reindeer, jolly old elves, or decorative strings of lights — some that even blink! If you do not celebrate Christmas, no need to despair. You can still enjoy this trendy tradition with colorful Hanukkah or Kwanzaa sweaters.

When picking your perfect sweater, think about the pattern on the front. You will feel the most comfortable in a sweater that fits your personality. If you like Christmas trees, find one with a tree. If you like reindeer, let us suggest a sweater with a reindeer on it.

If you want to stand out even more, a holiday sweater vest may be perfect for you! For even more festive fun, wear your vest over your colorful sweater to really get in the spirit of the season.

Stay tuned for more fashion advice from the Wingspan, and send your Christmas sweater “selfies” to chswingspan@gmail.com to be posted on the website!
