The holidays make us nostalgic, and with only ten days left until the big day we have compiled the ultimate guide to this seasons must have- the ugly Christmas sweater. Chances are you have already been invited to at least one ugly Christmas sweater party this year and if you haven’t maybe you should host one! Check out our compiled list of swanky sweaters to get you in that ho-ho-holiday spirit!

The Old School

Winter can be cold, keep warm with a hideously festive sweater! These days, holiday sweaters are very on trend, but we still remember the day when our mom would force us to wear the Christmas sweater from Aunt Gloria that was ugly- but not on purpose. Go for an old-school vibe and rock one of these knitted atrocities.


The #BestieGoals

We all have that one friend that we simply can’t live without. This Christmas why not intensify your love for one another with a sweater that proves just how far your bestie status has come. Sharing popcorn and wine while watching A Christmas Story just got a lot cozier.


The Space Maker

The holidays often come with a heightened obligation to attend parties, work events and family get-togethers. If you have officially reached your quota of social interaction for the year, try donning a sweater like this one:


The bright horizontal pattern is sure to drive everyone in a one meter radius away, giving you some much deserved peace and quiet.

The Grandma Glam

If you’re looking to make the most out of your ugly sweater while avoiding getting caught in the same outfit on Instagram twice (the horror!) try a funky Christmas cardigan to make Grandma proud. Bonus that this look can be styled numerous ways both open and closed to give you maximum wear-ability this holiday season.


The Character Favourites

Like we said before, the holidays make us nostalgic. If you also have a deep love of all the Claymation classics, this sweater is for you. Wear Frosty with pride and impress your friends with your useless but endearing knowledge of every detail of Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.


Get festive this season and rock your ugly Christmas sweaters with pride. Share your thoughts with us below!
