Ugly Christmas Sweaters
What would the holidays be like without the presence of the ugly Christmas sweater? Usually worn by your grandparents, holiday sweaters are popping up everywhere this season from Forever21 to New Look and American Eagle! Worn with the right accessories, leggings and jeans, you can make the ugly Christmas sweater look ironically cool this season. And what better way to get into the Christmas spirit than wearing a giant reindeer on the front of your sweater?
Modern holiday themed Christmas sweaters don’t all have to be ugly. Some of the ones we found are cute, aren’t necessarily red and green and are perfect for the holidays. Ski sweaters, snowflake prints and the popular Fair Isle print are all good ways to get cozy and wintery without wearing a Christmas >tree on your body. For those of you who want an obvious Christmas motif on your clothing, have no fear - it’s never been easier to find reindeer sweaters at the mall or sweaters with a bow print or festive winter motif. Unlike the old ugly Christmas sweaters, these reindeer sweaters come in a variety of colors and aren’t trying to be loud. Call it subtle holiday sweater dressing!
