Daring or Dreadful: Christmas Spirit

With Christmas time near, I see people everyday showing their Christmas spirit...in their clothing choices that is. With Christmas sweaters, cardigans, jackets, or pretty much anything, people can quickly cross the line from festive to absolutely tacky. Even famous designer brands are partaking in this December crime.

h² says: Christmas spirit can be appropriate as long as it's subtle. Don't go crazy with red and green combos and try to stay away from the childish jewelry and hair pieces. And at all costs...avoid the "classic" Christmas sweater. You know the ones I'm talking about. The ones with red and green everywhere...and even flashing little lights. If you aren't sure if what you're about to wear will send you to the worst dressed list, then don't wear it.

What's your take on wearable Christmas spirit? Daring or Dreadful?

Acceptable Christmas Attire:

Charity Shop Jumper, Carboot Sale Jewlers Necklace, Primark Scarf, Primark Karki Jeans


Cutting it Close:

Ralph Lauren Sweater

All-Around Tacky:

 

Ralph Lauren has gone Christmas crazy!
