Step Into the Holidays with the Classics

It’s officially my favorite season of the year when it comes to traditions! From decorating to gift-giving, the holidays are definitely a time of year near and dear to my heart. I love getting the opportunity to spend time with family, friends and loves ones. And who doesn’t love a great holiday party? I couldn’t be more excited!
I have to admit that although the events are amazing, finding something to wear to each one can sometimes be a very serious task. Aside from the events - also comes gift shopping. Each year, my family members from my aunt to my grandmother, assign me the most difficult task of purchasing gifts for the entire family. It always seems to be stressful at first but I have to admit that it’s also a lot of fun.

This year, I am not only noticing an ongoing trend with my holiday picks for myself but the same for when I am gift shopping. Having a background in fashion design and having designed clothes for 9 years, knitwear was my specialty. Not only were the holidays our busiest time but my favorite was to design, create, and style the iconic gift giving and holiday party pieces. 

Having a classic knitwear piece that you can style various ways for the holiday season is a key staple for the holidays. I always look for great quality and a neutral color to style with bold accessories. This cowl neck sweater has the perfect length to either be worn as a tunic or tucked into your jeans or a skirt for a more elevated look. It has different stitch details to the bottom hem and sleeves adding character to the silhouette. I not only own this piece for myself but will definitely be gifting it my family members in their favorite colors. 

I paired my look with iconic red boots - the “It” color of the season along with a red lip. I wanted to keep the look classic and timeless yet a bit edgy. Who said the holidays were only meant for ugly Christmas sweaters? Invest in a great knitwear piece and give another as a gift this season and I promise you that they will not only love the garment but adore you! Now, off to plan my next holiday event or better yet, who I will be gifting this piece in red too?
