Christmas garments don’t have to be all red and twinkly. A more understated look can be just as festive, and we think this cardigan is the perfect compromise: bright and joyful for Christmas Day, yet classy and cool enough to wear all year round. Making the most of the current vintage trend, we love this glam Fair Isle cardi.
