How To Wear Your Favorite Holiday Sweater

holiday sweater old navyWhen it comes to seasonal holiday dressing, AKA wearing your fav festive finds, it can be a case of walking a fine line between a whimsical look or a what-on-earth-is-he-wearing look! Lots of you guys message me to say how much you like to wear a graphic shirt throughout the year, so I figured you probably like to do the same when it comes to dressing for the holidays, too. So, today’s post – the latest in my on-going collaboration with Old Navy – walks through my tips for how to wear your favorite holiday sweater – and how to look great doing so!holiday sweater old navyAlright, so first up is to decide on that hero holiday sweater that’s going to anchor the look. Perhaps it’s an old favorite or maybe it’s a new find, like this fair isle tree motif sweater one I’m wearing. Then, build up the look from there. I took cues from the sophisticated monochrome palette of the sweater when choosing items to complete the look. I decided to wear a wool twill top coat in a dark charcoal color way so as to continue the monochrome color story of the sweater old navyI think every outfit needs a splash of color to complete it. It doesn’t have to be much, sometimes it can just be a sock or the sole of a shoe, in this case it was my festive red flannel scarf. It was the perfect accent to make the outfit pop and inject some life into the monochrome look. I wore a pair of medium wash skinny denim to contrast with the darker colors up top; I like how the blue tone of the jeans reflects the cool Nordic light that we get at this time of sweater old navyMy trusty pair of sueded lace-up chukkas (I’ve been living in these since the fall!) were the perfect shoe for this festive look.
