As if Mother Nature hadn’t told us with the 50-state Polar Vortex last week, it’s officially sweater weather.
A great sweater is like your favorite pair of shoes–once you put it on, you’re never taking it off. It’s soft and cozy, keeps you toasty, and best of all–hides the (extra) food babies you may (or may not) find during festivities.
Not only are oversize sweaters a huge fashion trend, but when paired with skinny pants and tall boots, you’ve definitely earned best-dressed and have a little wiggle room to grab a second (or third, or fourth…) helping of stuffing.
Here are eight of our favorite sweaters to last you through holiday soirees and more during what’s expected to be yet another brutal winter season.
