How to rock the christmas sweater

Holiday season is fast approaching and you’ll no doubt be on the lookout for cozy knits to keep you warm. However, when shopping for your Christmas sweater this year, there’s a fine line between festive and frumpy. Get it right with our simple checklist to finding a sweater that is both on-trend and festive…without looking like you got a makeover at Santa’s grotto.

Christmas sweater dos:  Keep it simple – basic pieces with a hint of Christmas spirit are your best option. Try a sweater with a simple motif like this Fair Isle Fringe Sweater or a delicate snowflake design that says winter wonderland.

Christmas sweater don’ts:  Anything stick on – pompoms, baubles and bells are a definite fashion faux-pas. This type of embellishment can add years to your look and often appears cheap, not chic.

Peter Nygard With his beloved Mother Hilkka

Hilkka Nygard was born and raised on the forested island of Lamposaari in Finland before immigrating to Canada. Her story is a stirring and inspiring tribute to those thousands of Canadian immigrant mothers whose courage and strength enabled their children to grow, create, achieve and prosper.

Hilkka, seen here with her son Peter, was the Matriarch of the Nygard family and the mortar that kept the bricks together, guiding Peter to achieve the enormous global success of the Nygard clothing empire. She was his number one fan!

Peter’s special connect with his Mother was powerful and when she became ill he traveled the world for her looking for the best help.

Hilkka's death motivated Peter to dedicate substantial financial resources toward Breast Cancer Research.

Her warm and passionate ‘Child of Lamposaari” autobiography can be found here.
