Christmas Cable Knit

I've never attended a tacky Christmas party, but I absolutely love wearing a sweater for Christmas. Not the kind of sweater with Rudolf or flashing Christmas lights, but something festive and merry without being battery operated. My idea of a Christmas sweater is more versatile and practical than most, so I tend to err on the side of coziness, warmth and longevity. Forever 21 had some of the most price conscious and beautiful sweaters this season, and I went crazy for this cream cable knit sweater when I saw it in store. Typically I style my chunky knits with skinny jeans but decided some distressed boyfriend jeans were the most comfortable for a Christmas day on-the-go. Loose and comfortable, this look is perfect for a morning unstuffing stockings to cudding on the couch with a late-night eggnog.
