This year we’ve put the Ugly Christmas Sweater on the naughty list — buttons, rhinestones, patchwork and bells need not apply. Instead, this Christmas we are in luck because chunky knits, fantastic prints and smart layering have never been more on-trend.
Dressed up or dressed down these holiday looks are fa-la-la-la-la-fabulous.

Old Navy, Novelty Xmas Sweater
Keep it casual with this great sweater from Old Navy. We love the deer, they give the outfit some holiday cheer without going totally Hickory Farms fromage. Pair it with your favourite worn-in jeans and boots. This look is very ‘I just got back from the forest to chop down a tree’ chic!
Holt Renfrew, Givenchy knit sweater
Nothing channels the holidays like a little argyle. This chunky knit from Givenchy is perfect for cozy nights by the fire. The two red stripes also give this sweater a modern edge.
Gap, Double Knit Striped Shawl Cardigan (on top)
Layer your sweaters! These striped sweaters from The Gap give a nod to the nautical trend and are perfect for the cozy-holiday look. This is the ideal getup for shopping outside or going for a stroll with friends.
Harry Rosen, Versace Collection, Diamond Jacquard Knit
Turquoise is a great colour for the holidays; such a change from the mundane red and green. This fabulous diamond jacquard v-neck sweater from Harry Rosen has just the right hint of pattern. A perfect layering piece or wear it all on its own.
Banana Republic, Charcoal Fairisle Shawl Sweater
The shawl neck is another big trend for men’s fashion and this one from Banana Republic is just right. The knit charcoal colour keeps it dressy, but still leaves enough room to let a collared shirt poke through — perfect for holiday dinner parties.
