How to: Wear Christmas Sweaters (When its not Christmas)





Those colourful, and festive sweaters are perfect for the two weeks of christmas cheer, but the other 351 days of the year? Ahem. But not to worry, I have made a list of ways to help you style that Santa Sweater and make cute outfits with it all winter long :)


1  Put a vest over it!

Most of the Christmas sweaters I've seen have a huge Santa/Rudolph/Elf on the front, and cute sleeves. By putting a vest over the Christmas "item", you get to showcase the cute part of the sweater, without flashing that giant picture of Rudolph to everybody in February.


2  Wear a scarf

Same gist as #1, its all about covering up the Christmas item, or just letting it show because you don't give a **** :)



3  Tie it around your neck

Not like a scarf, but this is a great way to showcase the cute patterns on the sleeves and back. (for a better idea of what I am talking about, here is a picture to illustrate, except the sweater will be more christmas-y)





I hope this helps the next time its laundry day and your Christmas sweater is all you have left, or whatever situation. Tell me about any laundry day experiences in the comments :)

  8. It sounds as though someone is having a tough time letting go of their Christmas jumper! ;) I accidentally slept in my Christmas pyjamas last night without even realising, so I feel you haha. Wearing a scarf over the festive picture is a great idea!
