Santa's little helper

If you tend to stick to four major food groups during the holidays (candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup), then you've probably got a bit in common with Christmas elves. Make Santa's little helpers your style muses, even if you plan on doing more relaxing than working over Christmas break. Sweater, $20, walmart.ca.

Wrapped with a bow

Every Christmas sweater doesn't have to be peppered with elves and reindeer. Try a vintage '80s top for a subtle dose of tacky. We love the bow motif. Mile Zero Vintage sweater, $27, etsy.com.
