I’ve been paying more attention than normal Christmas-inspired fashion this year, and I’ve been surprised to find one unexpected piece growing on me: the festive sweater.
(Oblige me for just a few minutes and put aside the fact that we’re going into summer in Australia, which means most of us couldn’t wear one of these even if we wanted to.)
For me, the thought of a Christmas-themed sweater initially conjured up images of a miserable looking Bridget Jones, cigarette and glass of chardonnay in hand, at the most boring Christmas party in history.
In short – total dorkfest.
But designers like Moschino, Isabel Marant and Marc Jacobs have completely changed my perspective by releasing some quirky, but incredibly chic options:
You could dress all of these up with a pair of skinny jeans and heels, or down for daytime with some casual denim and flats. Either way, I’m loving them.
So, are you coveting these festive-inspired creations too, or could you not care less? I suspect this is the kind of thing you either love or hate. Do tell!
