Holiday Sweaters That Put You in Stitches

Vintage is still the hot market, and some stores help customers stock up for 'ugly sweater parties.'

It's impossible for some people to resist a holiday sweater, and by that we mean the garment that enters a room before you do. Sometimes, you can hear one coming. The tiny bells will ting-aling.

Sure, you can go subtle if you want to be like that, but elegant and understated are in opposition to the fashion statement that we've come to admire for pure guts—like "Ugly Betty."

A source close to the Patch newsroom once admitted to wearing a gift Christmas sweater, which was actually a red sweatshirt. It had a tree of layered green ribbon shreds and perky button ornaments that couldn't be washed, adding to its old world charm.

Whether you hate or love sweaters, you probably won't miss the ones you find at Aaardvark or The Salvation Army at 4001 Inglewood Ave. in Redondo Beach or one with tassels at The Spintered Heart in Hermosa Beach.
