Believe it or not, Christmas sweaters have come a long way in the last 60-plus years. In the past, Christmas sweaters were associated with fairly embarrassing prints and designs—things like a giant reindeer, a jolly-looking Santa, or generic snowy scenes. While these sweaters, and even light-up options, are still on shelves throughout stores, Christmas sweaters have become more elevated in recent years, with prints that can be worn on the holiday and even throughout all of the winter months. This holiday season, enjoy the fun tradition of wearing Christmas sweaters without sacrificing your personal fashion style.
Learn more below about our favorite Christmas sweater prints that can be worn on the holiday and beyond. Here are some Christmas sweater prints you'll love wearing this season.
Take a break from the traditional red and green this holiday season and bring a little extra personality to your outfit with a merry-inducing Christmas sweater print. Have fun singing carols and sipping eggnog at your next Christmas shindig in one of our women’s turtlenecks.
Not only will you love how the fully-fashioned knitting fits you just right from day one, but the festive design beautifully knit into the fabric of your soon-to-be favorite sweater definitely brings that "life of the party" feel you've been going for all season. And with a variety of fun prints and colors to choose from we're sure you'll love shopping for that perfect Christmas sweater print to help you spread some serious cheer this Christmas.
Forget the cinnamon rolls this year and bring some class to Christmas brunch instead in a Fair Isle sweater. If the pattern seems familiar, that's because it's been around since the turn of the 20th century when the Prince of Wales himself (not that one) took a liking to the multi-colored pattern. Thankfully you don't have to wear a crown to style this wonderful wintery pattern but you certainly may feel like royalty when you slip one on.
Cozy enough to be worn on its own, and roomy enough to wear over an oxford, the Fair Isle sweater is the only one you'll need to bring a bit of class and elegance to your Christmas festivities. Plus, it can easily be worn all winter long since the pattern itself doesn’t have any sort of Christmas design.
No need to leave your fashion comfort zone to show off your Christmas spirit. If bold prints and patterns aren't exactly your thing, then stick with what you know (and love). Keep things jolly this Christmas in a bold plaid that's festive without going over the top.
And if you’re celebrating Christmas in a warmer climate, you can opt for one of our Lands’ End plaid flannel shirts, which are just as seasonal without being as warm as a plaid sweater. You can even dress down a flannel button-down by wearing it unbuttoned over a solid-colored t-shirt.
You can also spread some holiday cheer in one of the many wonderfully playful striped sweaters offered at landsend.com. Choose from a range of striped sweaters for women, including crewneck styles, tunic sweaters, and shawl-collar cardigans. Many of these sweaters come in both petite and plus sizes, too. Wear your sweater with a pair of jeggings for a casual, at-home look or dress your sweater up with a midi-length skirt.
A cable-knit sweater in a rich red or green is a versatile top that fits the bill for Christmas and beyond. For your upcoming holiday celebration, wear your choice of cable-knit sweater with a white button-down top peeking out from underneath. The addition of the white top makes this look even more special for a holiday event. A pair of high rise jeans is the perfect final piece to complete this look. To make this outfit feel even more festive, add a pair of dangly, sparkly earrings and a matching statement ring.
You’ve heard of matching family pajamas around Christmas, but how about matching family sweaters? Show up in style to your upcoming shindig by putting your whole family (yes, your husband too) in the same color and style of sweater. Not only will you make a statement when you walk into the party, but you and your family will look especially stylish in any photos from the day. Plus, it’s a fun tradition to start for your kids.
There are many ways to look great in a Christmas sweater, and you can find an outfit that fits your style easily. You can go for a bold sweater covered in Christmas patterns or go for a more understated sweater that can be worn all throughout the winter.
