The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are chock full of reasons to find joy. Topping my list: singing along to Holiday tunes 24/7, cocktails with a festive twist, and fun family time. Plus, all my favorite stores get a sweet Holiday makeover…including the addition of festive sweaters!
We’re all familiar with the typical F-UGLY Christmas Sweaters. I thought we could create a new category this year. Are you ready for some FUN+GLEE Christmas Sweaters, friends? (see what I did there?! 😉)
One of my personal faves–Aerie–has a huge selection this year! This post is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Aerie. I’m just a super fan of their body-positive message, and their massive inventory of comfs. Aerie’s super cozy pieces are sure to make any body feel comfortable and confident all year-round.
For reference, I’m 5’4″, 135, 34B, with a 🏃🏽♀️ booty and thighs made for running all those Army PT tests 😉
Ready…set…be MERRY with these tongue-in-cheek Graphic Pullovers. Wearing size S in the “Nice-ish” print and size XL in the “Naughty-ish”–clearly a customer favorite, since it was the only size left in the store. Limited sizes left online, also, so hurry if you like this one!
Size up for a relaxed, cozy fit. I would prefer a M in this one.
Craving a more traditional look? Aerie has a bunch of Fair Isle options. These two caught my eye for their striking patterns and all the pink!
I absolutely loved the design of the oversized turtleneck sweater, but “Fair” warning (hahaha), it got super itchy even just in the short try-on. The crewneck sweater was much softer and probably more versatile through Fall and Winer. It could easily layer with a puffer vest or a neutral scarf.
Stay with your normal size for the oversized Turtleneck (wearing a S).
Plan to size down for the crewneck (wearing XS and still plenty roomy).
Oh my word, friends, these next 2 are my absolute faves! I can’t decide if it’s because they make me nostalgic for my short-lived high school ski team days, or they just speak to my love of athleisure. Whatever the case, do yourself a favor, and add these to your closet NOW!
The chevron sweater is SO soft and fuzzy, without being bulky. This one totally came home with me (along with the matching bottoms 😊). Stick with your normal size for both. I bought the top in a S, bottoms in a M.
Size down one (possibly 2) on the super-oversized Ski School Dropout pullover. Wearing here in an XS.
Wrapping up the FUN+GLEE search are these sweet thermal tops.
Sooo…they’re not exactly sweaters, but these thermals are too cute not to be included. I think, technically, Aerie promotes these as PJ tops. But, I would totally wear them with joggers, slip-on sneakers, and a puffy vest. The red top definitely came home with me. I seriously debated the Ski Bunny top, too, but something about that offset text made my eyes cross 🤪
These relaxed thermals are pretty true to size. I bought my normal S in the red.
Stay cozy, friends.
