Zero Kids | 317 Second Street 

This is the spot for whimsical holiday sweaters and looks. Think: embroidery, bows, characters, pretty much the worlds. The vintage inventory mostly from the 70s through the early 2000s is the focus here, and there’s much to be explored. Pair an oversized sweater over tights and add chunky loafers or boots for a unique outfit, but truly the sky’s the limit. 

In a pinch, if you can’t find anything in your size at the local shops above, head to TJMaxx or Target which are known to have some in stock. Follow us @thehobokengirl for more holiday updates.
