Our Favorite Holiday Sweaters – Illustrated!

Looking back through old holiday photos, we all probably have something in common: the Ugly Christmas Sweater. These days it has become more of a joke but back when I was a kid we were serious when we wore those gaudy, brightly colored sweaters with giant reindeer or snowmen on them. This season, our designers were challenged to reinvent the holiday sweater, and come up with designs that would make them cool again – and boy did they succeed. 

We have some seriously adorable and cozy holiday sweaters online right now that I definitely would not be embarrassed to wear, and they are so incredibly warm and soft I would live in them all winter long.  We teamed up with our talented graphic designers to put together this post, featuring photos of three of our favorite sweaters that they then illustrated for us! Which one is your favorite??

The sweaters are great, but it’s a little irresponsible to not have given any credit to the illustrator.

Hi Dana – the illustrations were done by one of our graphic designers, and it is our company policy not to share employee names :) thanks!
