Express Sweaters for the Holidays

This is a monumental day for Style On Target, because The Husband is gracing us with his presence (whaaaaaaat?)!!


Express and ShopStyle reached out to us and asked if we would be up for showcasing some of their sweaters. I jumped at the chance, but The Husband was a little bit more hesitant. This is his first time on a style blog, so be sure to make him feel at home here!

Though sidenote, no offense Express, but I think he’s WAY cuter than Stephen Curry (their current celebrity male model). Less Instagram followers (aka zero, since he doesn’t have one), but WAY cuter. Feel free to contact me for future bookings! ;)

We decided to showcase two different looks for you all featuring Express sweaters: one for casual holiday style and another for dressy holiday style. They currently have tons of options so be sure to check out the selection for men (here) and women (here).

Casual Holiday Style: These are perfect looks for casual Christmas card photos, casual family get-togethers, driving around and seeing the Christmas lights on neighborhood houses, hanging out with friends that are home for the holidays, or talking warm walks in a snowy winter wonderland.

Cooper (our dog) told me that he was disappointed that he didn’t get to be in these casual photos.

Maybe next time, pup! ;)

Dressy Holiday Style: This is more suited (pun intended) for those holiday work parties, dinners out with the in-laws at those classy establishments, fancy Christmas card photos, dragging The Husband to a holiday concert or The Nutcracker, and New Year’s Eve celebrations!

A sparkly sweater tucked into a skirt and paired with a belt almost creates the look of a sweater dress, which is why I love separates so very much. The Husband loves his new stripe shirt, and I loved the mix of blue and burgundy.

It’s also the best when your purse and lipstick matches The Husband’s sweater. ;)

#givestyle with express; holiday 2015

#GiveStyle: Express makes it easy to give the perfect gift with their under $50 gift guides for women (here) and men (here), but I think one of the best gifts you can give is the gift of warmth. The Husband is getting his first peacoat from me this Christmas (spoiler alert), and I picked out this scarf to go with it. This might be his first scarf ever, ladies and gentlemen! Gasp!

I also am a firm believer in the “one for you, one for me” gift giving mantra (hah!), so I picked up this cozy black pom pom beanie hat for myself, though I’ll try to guilt The Husband into wrapping it up for me and putting it under the tree! ;)

ps. And if all that wasn’t enough great holiday stuff for you…Express also has a great list here of ways to fancy up your s’mores, and we all know that I’m ALL over that! #smoresforlife

    The Adored Life

  • you guys are sooo cute and i love the makeshift sweater dress!

  • A couple’s style shoot?! Adorable. And I agree – love your purse matching his sweater. You look so nice and coordinated without being overly-matchy. And when you’ve got a combination that good going on, you for sure need to do a photo shoot.

  • Love, love, love your sparkly sweater, particularly in combination with the polka dot tights!
