Every year I buy a new Christmas sweater to wear during the holidays. It makes it so much easier when I don’t have to stress over what I am going to wear on Christmas day. I need something that will allow me to move around, bend over or even lay down for a break without worrying that I will mess up my outfit. Therefore, I seek comfortable, yet beautiful Christmas sweatshirts or sweaters.
Another reason I want a sweater or festive sweatshirt is because of the cold weather. We often visit relatives during the holidays, which means we are going from one house to another carrying gifts. I hate having to wear a cumbersome coat! A nice sweatshirt sweater gives the needed warmth walking from the car to the front door, without being too confining. Furthermore, I don’t have to take a coat off, then put it back on again when it is time to go to the next house.
These are some really pretty options for holiday sweatshirts. I frequently dress up a sweatshirt by wearing a solid color turtleneck sweater under them. That is also a great way to add a touch of color close to my face with a white sweatshirt.
I do a lot of the cooking for our entire family during the holidays too. Having a loose-fitting sweatshirt or sweatshirt style sweater gives me room to move around the kitchen. Plus, I don’t have to be concerned that it is too low-cut or that is might pull open in the front like button-up shirts.
As we would expect, Christmas sweaters are made from a different material than sweatshirts. They tend to be more “dressy” than a t-shirt. One of these holiday sweaters would be awesome for parties or visiting friends and family.
Christmas Sweater Dresses with Leggings
Clever Travel Companion Women’s Leggings with Secret PocketsThe longer sweaters are perfect to wear with leggings! I see women of all ages wearing leggings now instead of dress slacks. They are certainly a lot more comfortable, especially during the holidays when we are expected to move fast.
The only thing I don’t like about leggings is that they don’t have pockets, and I need pockets. A few years ago, I discovered Clever Travel Leggings and I love them! Not only do they have pockets, but they have zipper pockets to keep my small wallet and cell phone safe. The Clever Travel Leggings are the perfect combination for the longer holiday sweater dresses.
