As every year for the Christmas and New Year parties, Christmas special sweaters are back in fashion. Available in all colors, for all tastes and often at low prices, it is hard not to find your happiness.
The trend continues more and more with our desire for fun for the holidays, offbeat spirit, that’s why you will find some looks’ ideas with holiday sweaters selected especially for you!
Where does the Christmas sweater tradition come from?
The special Christmas sweater was above all an Anglo-Saxon Christmas tradition when hand knit sweaters were presented with motifs related to Christmas : elves, reindeer, a Christmas tree, snowmen…
It was in 2001 that the famous Mark Darcy put the famous Christmas sweater in the spotlight with his sweater Rudolph the little reindeer and fell in love for our dear Bridget.
He is then seen as a pretty nerdy sweater, even ugly, which has earned him since 2011, to be celebrated on December 16 with a holiday called more commonly “ugly Christmas sweater party”. This day of celebration is spreading more and more in the United States, Canada, England, France … At work or with friends, everyone has the right to wear a “ridiculous” pull to celebrate Christmas, all for the pleasure of relaxing before the holidays.
In recent years, Christmas sweaters are more and more present to show our fun side and are no longer characterized by tacky. We find more and more funny sweaters or with special Christmas word games. Inter-agency competitions are even organized to elect who will have the best or the funniest Christmas sweater.
How to wear the Christmas sweater?
Christmas sweaters are mostly associated with bright Christmas colors such as red and green with motifs referring to Christmas such as leprechauns, Santa Claus or reindeer. But for the shy persons or not so into this trend, these are also declined in jacquard pattern with more sober colors such as black, blue or gray.
Christmas sweaters with a strong look are usually worn with humor to be in the mood of the holiday season and bring a bit of lightness. There is no point in taking someone seriously when wearing a sweater with reindeer or a mischievous goblin.
However, for a look for everyday life, do not hesitate to wear your sweater with a pretty skirt or leather pants, jeans or carrot pants.
If you wear a crazy Christmas sweater with wrestling or reindeer, do not hesitate to wear it with a skirt and small boots with heels, even high boots to play a little sexy card and bring a real contrast. You can also wear it with carrot pants and derbies always to bring a contrast and stay in class but with a touch of fun.
To avoid falling into the pajama look, we avoid wearing these sweaters with jogging pants or sweatpants, unless it is for a tv party of course!
