It’s time to get festive with sweaters that light up

Brandi Fowler

‘Tis the season for festive sweaters and some instagrammable fun, even in 2020. Although this year hasn’t been what any of us have expected, the holiday season is still on, and we’re excited to add a little sparkle, shine, and a whimsical top or two to your Christmas-themed wardrobe. 

While you can opt to go big with a sequin-embellished dress for your virtual holiday party or social distanced gathering, nothing beats cozy - and cute - if you take in the bash from the comfort of your own home. So, here’s your chance to get creative with our round-up of 11 quriky Christmas sweaters to suit just about every taste.
