Sticking to a simple color palette (in this case, shades of gray and blue) can help detract attention from a bright, festive design. And while the pinstripe pants draw your eyes away from the Fair Isle print, a long-line bomber and high-top sneakers bring a casual feel to the look that you wouldn't typically find if this were styled for a party.
Up The Textures
To disarm a busy sweater pattern, load up your look with a ton of playful textures. The combination of suede culottes and booties, fuzzy socks, and a fur-trimmed parka distract from the holiday vibes, yet still complement the showpiece.
Give It A Punk Twist
Nothing cancels out the holiday spirit quite like irreverent punk vibes. Pair this candy-cane-red top with plaid pants, moto buckle boots, and a personalized touch of statement pins to make this ensemble much more your speed. A clean, ankle-grazing overcoat keeps it from erring too edgy.
Wear It Under A Dress
Tone down the festive vibes with a minimalist jumper dress, layering it atop the sweater and adding a belt to ensure a flattering fit. Knee-high boots will keep you warm, as will this classic camel blazer.
