The holiday season can be an extremely stressful time of year. Buying presents, entertaining family and eating until you can’t breathe can take a lot out of a person. With that being said, what’s a better way to relax by none other than celebrating with an “Ugly Christmas Sweater”?
Over the past years, these so-called “Ugly” sweaters have really become a thing. The classic Bill Cosby look which was made popular back in the early 90’s have become a “must have” for the holidays. If you’re attending a sweater themed party this year, Goodwill and I have got you covered. Check out the three ways you can style that hideous sweater.
Sweater + Joggers:
Isn’t it lovely that we live in a society where wearing sweats for everything but the gym is ok? Pairing your Ugly Christmas Sweater with a pair of joggers is the perfect combo for a relaxed vibe. This look can work with sneakers or even a pair of booties.
Sweater + Denim:
Wearing your sweater with a pair of denim is a given. If you work in a relaxed environment this combo can work with a pair of over the knee boots. If you’re rocking this look to a friend’s party, you can basically do whatever you want because friends don’t judge.
Sweater + Leather:
Even though I always lean towards denim, I love the edge leather gives to any outfit. You can style your holiday sweater and leather skirt (or pants) for your next holiday party or drinks with friends. Nothing is more of a conversation starter than a sweater with personality.
So if you’re stuck this year with what to wear with your animated sweater that brings holiday cheer, you have some options. Those of us that live in the NYC area can stop in selected Goodwill Stores to buy a handmade sweater, which was made in Peru!
