NorthPark Center is always my favorite stop during the holiday season. From the dozens of charity events to the thousands of jolly shoppers, it’s hard to beat the Southern hospitality and warm, friendly atmosphere NorthPark offers. And, speaking of warmness, I’ve noticed a fashionable trend this holiday season that correlates with the weather: Christmas sweaters. In fact, I’m personally a huge fan! I love them so much that I’ve hand-picked a select few sweater favorites.
1. Living in the North Pole requires somewhat of a DIY attitude (plumbers, exterminators and doctors tend not to make house calls that far north, for some reason), so I bought as many of Paper Source’s ugly sweater kits ($12.95) as my sleigh could carry. This way, kids and adults of all ages can be as unique as they want to be at parties and other festivities throughout the rest of the season.
2. Personal fashion opinions may vary slightly, but I just love an ugly Christmas sweater. It’s not like I’m walking down a fashion show runway while making deliveries. However, if your taste is a bit more “refined,” you should check out Burberry’s brushed mohair blend shawl cotton sweater ($595). This beauty is at the top of Mrs. Claus’ Christmas list this year.
3. You can also stop by kate spade new york and try on the elegantly understated Tippy sweater ($268). The only tough decision will be choosing from the black, blush or Venus blue hues.
H&M fine knit sweater ($19.95)
4. It just wouldn’t be Christmas without gifting a sweater to family or friends, and the neat Euro-styling and prices at H&M will make it easy to check everybody off your “nice” list. And I can’t forget the traditional cable-knit options at Gap, where you will again have a tough time picking from the bright Christmas colors and cozy tones.
There’s no doubt about it: Nordstrom is the place to shop for unapologetic Christmas styles. I really like the reindeer knit crewnecks ($55). I know what Rudolph’s getting this year!
When it comes to supporting everything from good causes to spending habits, there’s just no match for NorthPark.
Stay frosty, dear friends,
