Tis the season for festive holiday gatherings. Throughout the years, there’s one event that has proven itself a staple—the ugly Christmas sweater party! It’s where guests come dressed in their favorite (and also their least favorite) top. You know the kind; the ugly Christmas sweater boasts kitschy knitting and ostentatious trims. For these fetes, the crazier the details, the better. So come Dancer and Prancer, you’re the perfect additions to an oversized cardigan.
The ugly sweater party first started as an excuse to hit the thrift stores or rifle through your parent’s closet. It’s since gotten even more creative, as designers have started to produce contemporary versions of the now-vintage garments. Many have taken the essence of these sweaters and made them even funnier by including imagery that’s popular today. From festive sloths to Yetis with mistletoe, the updated versions bring cozy comfort and are sure to get you noticed at your next ugly sweater party.
