The Ski Sweater Goes Rogue

December 16, 2013

It’s that time of year again. The time when all those tacky Christmas themed sweaters come out of the closet to taunt us. You know the snowflake sweater, the Fair isle, and the animal motif; the stuff us fashionistas thought we’d never be caught dead in? Well, I have bad news for you: they’re totally in fashion this season! But wait a minute… before you start digging out the gift Aunt Ethel send years ago from the dark recesses of the basement, let’s look at what makes this year’s versions cooler than their predecessors.

They’re more graphic in nature.

The colors are more sophisticated.

The proportions are different.

They are worn with more attitude.

Please remember that while scarves, layered shirts, and oversized jewels add to the fun, those Christmas light necklaces that flash on and off are never going to make the cut. EVER.
