Getting the Tree

Whether your family gets their Christmas tree by ax or by credit card, picking out the perfect tree with your family is a beautiful holiday tradition. Honor those warm and fuzzy memories you're making, and wear your favorite cashmere sweater for this event. Feel good layering this comfortable, soft sweater beneath your down jacket for the trip to the tree lot. Also a great look for trimming the tree, your classic cashmere sweater looks great dressed down with your favorite jeans and ankle boots for that must-have photo op with the kids.

Checking Your List

It wouldn't be the holidays without a million trips to the mall as you shop for everyone on your list while "All I Want for Christmas" follows you from store to store. Lean into your newest role of Santa this season with the help of our cozy and colorful – not to mention flexible – fleece jackets. Maximize the layer-under-layer versatility of this wardrobe essential and feel good about your decision to leave your winter coat in the car. You won't need it with your cozy fleece pullover or jacket, keeping you warm as you shop for that perfect gift.

Cookie Swap

No doubt one of the best things about the holidays is all of the baked goods. Everywhere. All of the time. Resist the urge to eat all of those delicious, homemade sugar cookies yourself and instead host a holiday cookie swap or bake party for all of your friends and family. Keep things fun and casual and encourage your guests to wear their most comfortable, bake-friendly clothing like warm flannel shirts, cozy turtlenecks, and favorite sweaters. Have fun making a mess as you whip up some sweet memories in the kitchen, and then send everyone home with a festive box filled with the delicious results.

Enjoying The Wintery Outdoors

Grab the sleds out of the garage, pile into the car, and head to the biggest, snowiest hill you can find for a day filled with good, snowy fun and lots of laughs. Or, bundle up in hats and mittens, grab the ice skates, and head to the rink (or a very thickly iced-over body of water). Whatever your favorite outdoor winter activity, not only do you need a great outfit for the experience, but something that will keep you extra warm. Layer up with leggings underneath another pair of thick, durable pants or snow pants. Throw on a thick, long sleeve Henley or sweater, a cozy hoodie, and a warm winter coat. Finish the look with a cute but practical winter hat and warm, waterproof winter gloves. Don’t forget your snow boots!

Heading to The Holiday Party

The holiday season is one of the best times of the year to enjoy parties! Everything is just so much merrier, festive, and fun thanks to delicious food, classic holiday tunes, and quality time with friends and family. Depending on the theme of the holiday party, you're going to need a winning outfit. Heading to an ugly sweater Christmas party? Find the “ugliest” or funniest Christmas sweater in your closet or have fun shopping for a new one. Keep the look casual by finishing off the outfit with a pair of blue jeans. Is the holiday party you're attending going to be a dressy affair? For women, a great outfit could be a festive, brightly colored dress or a soft cashmere turtleneck with a pleated midi skirt. For men, it could be a dashing suit and tie look or a cashmere sweater with dress pants.

A Christmas Movie Marathon

If you're planning to spend a cold, snowy winter evening indoors for a Christmas movie marathon, nothing beats cozy, warm flannel pajamas. Get all dressed up in your favorite plaid flannel pajamas or Christmas print PJs. For even more warmth, throw on a flannel robe or wrap yourself in soft Christmas blankets. Pop the popcorn, bake some Christmas cookies, pour a mug of hot cocoa, and get comfy on the couch with your loved ones. Nothing beats warm pajamas, good snacks, dim lighting, and a night of holiday classics.
