Search is on for the perfect Christmas sweater


Sweater dresses are fast sellers at DressCode in Plattsburgh.

“A longer sweater, whether it’s button-up or pullover because they wear it with leggings,” said Julie Woodley of DressCode.

Teens are taken with echoes of Bill Cosby geometric-patterned sweaters.

“Cowl necks are huge, so is a great big neck, anything sparkly for the holidays,” Woodley said.

Sweaters with sparkle or in gray and mustard yellow are top sellers.

“Winter white is a real nice color that gets overlooked. Brown is a popular color. Lime green or a bright aqua, that’s fun in the winter. Leggings are huge. Boots, leggings and a long sweater is huge. Layering, that’s a big one,” she said.

As for the quest for the ultimate ugly Christmas sweater?

“I almost sold every one,” Woodley said. “They’re huge.”
