This is the time of year that the term “Holiday Dressing” is pretty buzzy. With all of the holiday parties and events right now, unlike any other time in the year, you have a reason to go all the way and dress to the nines. In fact, I am waiting for a party invite so I have a good excuse to wear this velvet blazer, but I would also suggest that holiday dressing can have a cozier more comfortable side. There is truly nothing better than having a couple of days off work with nowhere to go and having the perfect lounging outfit. That, my friends, feels like a holiday and is exactly where this cardigan comes in.
This chunky knit cardigan from the Nordstrom Men’s Shop is under $100 and really the perfect layer for this time of year. It works great with this merino henley and jeans to be out and about, but really shines as the perfect cozy layer to add over easy sweats and a tee during the holiday downtime. I am far from being a themed pajama person, so having easy pieces to throw on and still look pulled together are my off-duty must haves.
So if you are like me and appreciate the dressing down side of the holidays just as much as dressing up, then do yourself a favor and upgrade your cozy holiday wear. I have picked out a few of my favorites below to help you enjoy the downtime of the holidays, and doing so without all the kitsch.
