NOT SO UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATERS

Is it just me or did “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” have like a real moment this year?! I felt like this tacky holiday tradition blew up to the point that we now have a national holiday assigned to it – “National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day” – which fell on December 12 this year by the way (oops, missed that one!). There’s hundreds of online shops dedicated to this phenomenon and almost every major store, from H&M to Target, had an array of selections ranging from hideous to adorable. And, if that wasn’t enough, people had the option to make their own festive creation with an “Ugly Christmas Sweater Box Kit.” Also, let’s not forget TOM’s “Together Sweater” which took the whole Ugly Christmas Sweater thing to a whole new (HILARIOUS) level.

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve always been one to have a little fun with fashion and not take things too seriously. And, hello, you know I love any excuse to attend a themed party; this year marked a record high for me with 14 Ugly Christmas Sweater party invites! That’s like half of December, people! In any case, these events gave me a good excuse to shop. However, I chose to take a different route and avoid the whole “ugly” part of the sweater and switched things up with some clever, tongue-in-cheek (AND ACTUALLY WEARABLE) knits.

I love these sweaters. I wore them while decorating my apartment, gift-wrapping, will wear one tonight for “Noche Buena” and most likely all day on Christmas (LOL). They’re great lounge wear and I have the perfect boxers to pair them with. Let’s play dress up!
