When it comes to wardrobe essentials during the holidays, a statement sweater is near the top of the list. Whether it’s to combat the chilly temperatures or you’re just in the mood to wear something cozy, it’s the extra-special sweater that always emerges as the holiday hero. It’s the type of wardrobe workhorse that can be worn with anything – from the most casual pair of denim to an over-the-top shiny skirt. Versatility like that is key this time of year.
This season, I have several knits that I would consider my most-festive favorites – and get this: almost all of them are under $200. The list includes this feather-trimmed one, this tinsel-ish gold sweater, and this super cozy, oversized style that just so happens to be the most perfect shade of holiday red. (BTW: take a peek at this $57 goodie from ASOS. Such a good color!) The best of the lot, though, is without a doubt this sequin style from Zara. The price is oh-so right ($49!), and, thanks to the rainbow of sequins, I can pretty much pair it with any and every color I choose. Pink pants? Yep. Silver skirt? You bet.
