J Crew Holiday 2013: Vintage Holiday Sweater, Crinkle Boy Shirt in Red Plaid, Side-Button Sweater in Colorblock, Merino Fair Isle Sweater, Crinkle Boy Shirt in Black Check, Merino Embroidered Lace Sweater

Today I have some sweaters from the Holiday roll-out. The Vintage Holiday Sweater is super cute and one I was able to pick up in-store before it showed up online. I have it paired with the Crinkle Boy Shirt in Red Plaid. I took a Medium in the sweater and a size 8 in the shirt, both my normal size.

Next is the Side-Button Sweater in Colorblock, size Medium, in Dark Poppy. I preferred the Gray (don’t see it online) but passed overall on this. I like that you can just throw this on and it has enough visual interest to not make you get bored with wearing it, like the elbow patch and the side buttons.

I tried the Merino Fair Isle Sweater in both colors and loved the way my VPS styled the black sweater. This color, Midnight Red, looked more like Purple Red to me. I have on a Medium.

My VPS paired the black colorway of the sweater with Crinkle Boy Shirt in Black Check. I loved this pairing so much I bought both and wore them both the next day.

Lastly, is the Merino Embroidered Lace Sweater, Medium, in Apricot Mist Black. I tried this on as a gift idea for MamaBella. I like the contrast of the pink and black better than the red/black or blue/black colors.

Have you tried any of these sweaters?

    Audrey, I think the reindeer one is fun, but just know that barry would say "nice rack" every time I wore it…

    Thanks for the reviews! Your VPS sold me, too–ha! I saw your pic on Instragram, and ordered the sweater. The check shirt like that one from a couple years ago is on its way from ebay. Thanks for sharing the idea 🙂
