Everybody needs a holiday party sweater. For children, gaudy bright colours are fun. Ladies sometimes aim for something a bit classier. Either way, the crystalline lace yoke of this sweater adds a bit of sparkle and pop to a classically simple silhouette. Wear while sipping eggnog and herding sugar-crazed kiddies!
