If you ever attended a school where you were oppressively forced to wear a uniform, you know that people with true style can exhibit said style under any circumstances. Such is the resilience of the human spirit. In every grade, there’s that one smarmy asshole who, against all odds, is able to not only pull off the uniform but also get away with personalizing it in some small way. Never getting caught, never overtly breaking the dress code…one sly fellow.
Wishing all our friends a happy and safe holiday season— we’re so grateful for all the wonderful experiences that we’ve had through Rye & Rivet this past year, from meeting and interviewing our heroes to continuing to be impressed and surprised by all the support we’ve gotten from you readers. We can’t say “thanks” enough.

Below are our favorite modern and alternative holiday jams— think of them as your musical lifeline during this most wonderful (and most stressful) time of the year.
