With the holidays in full swing, it’s time to pull the trigger on those festive outfits you’ve been eyeing.  From cozy sweat sets for nights by the fire, to the perfect number for a classy company Christmas party, we’ve got all the outfit essentials you need to sleigh the season. One thing not in our closets this year? The ugly Christmas sweater. Gone are the days of spending Sunday afternoon thrifting for an oversized and overpriced sweater with a one-night-wear life. This year, we’re sending in our regrets to the ugly sweater theme, and will spend our nights rocking around the Christmas tree in something just as festive, but not as…ugly. Prepare to turn heads as you strut under the mistletoe in one of these Christmas sweaters that you can wear unashamed, all season long.
