Tips for Wearing Ugly Christmas Sweaters in Real Life

September 16, 2016

Ugly Christmas sweaters were once hidden in the back of our closets, but social media has turned them into a must have for every holiday season. This trend of the ugly holiday item does not look like it is going out of style any time soon. However, beyond wearing them to Ugly Christmas Sweater parties, they really do not get much love. Here are some ways that you are able to wear that holiday sweatshirt or hoodie in your real life.

  •  Keep the Rest Simple

When you are trying to wear your holiday sweater during a normal day, you need to keep the rest of your outfit simple. Jeans, plain leggings, or a skirt, with simple boot or shoes, is all you need to have a complete look. If you add more color on top of what is in the sweater, the odder your outfit looks.  If you are trying to look like you are the embodiment of the holiday, then go for it. If not, stay on the simple side.

  •  Ugly Christmas Sweaters Do Not Need Accessories

When you are wearing an ugly Christmas sweatshirt, adding a lot or large accessories will kill the whole outfit. The point is to show off your Xmas sweater, and accessories can quickly overshadow the wonder that is the outfit.

  •  Wear it with Confidence!

The main thing that you need to pull off an ugly Christmas sweatshirt is to have confidence. If you are walking around looking unsure of yourself, people will automatically know that you are unsure about your fashion choices. However, if you are able to hold your head up and be proud of your choice of sweater, you will bring the holiday joy to everyone else.

  •  Get your Friends or Animals Involved

Have fun, and see if you can get your friends to all wear their ugly Christmas sweaters since it is a lot of fun - Check out our Bah Humpug for dog lovers or Santa Paws for the crazy cat lady in your life. It may give you an excuse to go shopping online, and you could take it to the next level by buying matching ugly Christmas sweaters. Also, why not buy a matching sweater for your pet? They make great holiday pictures.


Fashion was never meant to be taken overly seriously, which is how the trend of ugly Christmas sweaters took the fashion world by storm. It’s also not likely to die off anytime soon, as it is starting to infect every other holiday. Just check out our Happy Hanukkha: Gin & Tonica clothing for proof. There are holiday sweaters for everyone’s style, and celebration. Even the celebrities are having fun with ugly Christmas sweaters. So, why only wear that holiday sweater to parties? Go out and have fun rocking your holiday sweatshirts all year long
