It’s no secret that I love a sweater moment, especially a festive holiday sweater moment! My thinking: if it’s gonna be cold, we might as well have some fun and look good while dressing for it. Right?! The good news is that there are plenty of stylish men’s sweaters in this year’s collections so I’ve pulled together my favorite fair isle sweaters, plaid sweatshirts, and holiday shirts for the winter season. You’ll be seeing lots of these holiday sweaters on my Instagram over the coming weeks, so dive into my men’s sweater edit below and then we can be twins! You can click the shopping tag over each sweater to shop it. Plus, at the time of posting many of these are currently on offer at 30-50% off. Prices displayed on the shoppable image below are full price without any discount, correct at the time of posting. Happy shopping!


I’ve split my sweater edit into three sections: festive, fair isle and plaid. Festive holiday sweaters are so much more than a wear-once-to-an-ugly-Christmas-sweater-party, they can be stylish sweaters you’ll wear all season long! They can give your outfit a pop of seasonal cheer when worn layered under a top coat, or can feel all-out festive if worn as your top layer. And if there was ever a year we needed some seasonal joy, this year is it!

Fair isle sweaters are my some of my favorite pieces in my winter wardrobe. They are the perfect layering piece for the season, especially a quarter zip fair isle sweater worn over a shirt and under a single-breasted coat. Plus, you can wear many of them long after the holidays because they often look wintery vs. overtly holiday themed, which makes them ideal if you are looking for a sweater you can wear through to spring. Another classic pattern for winter is plaid. I love plaid and black watch, especially in the lead up to the holidays. I hope you’re able to find a sweater or two to add to your closet this winter!
