Vintage Sweaters for the Holidays

With Halloween behind us, it’s time to start making our Holiday plans. Whether you’re planning to stay close to home and curl up with a hot beverage, jetting away to a tropical island, attending a ridiculously fancy New Year’s Eve Party, or a combination of all three, I’ve got some really fun ideas on how to seamlessly incorporate vintage into your life.

First up, cozy holiday sweaters. Who says “Holiday” has to mean reindeer and snowflakes? It seems like every occasion between Thanksgiving and New Years is saturated with red and green. For a fresh take on Holiday colors, this board is built around two of the sweaters currently in the Beulah Louise Vintage shop that just so happen to pair well with royal blue and red accessories. One is a royal blue and grey wool over-sized sweater that has been getting a lot of attention in the shop, and a vintage 1990’s Structure brand striped sweater which is actually a man’s size medium making it double as a tunic or a super cozy sweater. Either can be paired with skinny jeans or leggings and bundled with knit scarves, hats, mittens, and boot socks.

I found a few great examples of items from other Etsy shops, both vintage and handmade, that would pair well with these two lovely finds. I think my favorite item is the vintage 60s mohair plaid scarf from ModPropShop . How fun and festive is that? It incorporates the classic red plaid design often seen around Christmas, with some fun yellow and royal blue highlights. I might have to add that to my Christmas list. Be sure to check out all the great items, links provided below.
