The Ugly Christmas Sweater. I must admit I was never a fan of it. Yes, the ugly Christmas sweaters come in all sorts of colours and motifs. Some of them are funny, even cute in a way. However, in the end, they are still ugly. Or at least make us look ugly silly and unattractive. And not joyful at all. So, how to wear the ugly sweater to feel the joyful Christmas spirit and look stylish at the same time?
How I wear the Ugly Christmas Sweater
The trick is in the way you put it on and what you wear your ugly sweater with. The only thing you need to remember from this post is not to style the ugly sweater with the leggings. Leggings + the ugly sweater = fashion disaster. No matter how cosy it is, it is sloppy and unattractive. Rather with the leggings or even with track pants, wear the ugly jumper with a fashionable skirt or as an accessory to a metallic dress. Finish your look with the suede over the knee boots or white ankle boots.
As mentioned before. The way you put on the ugly sweater is important as well. I prefer to wear it as an accessory. And tie it around my arms. However, I wouldn’t wear it around my neck or around my waist.
But who knows, given how fashionable the ugly sweaters are in 2017, I might even wear it as a normal sweater. With a pleated midi skirt or asymmetric mini skirt. Or even better with chic leather pants.
And don’t forget. The name Ugly Christmas Sweaters came with a reason. The whole point of this jumpers is to bring fun and happiness in the Christmas week. Meaning, you should put them in the bottom of your wardrobe drawer the day after the Christmas week. And not take them out before the next Christmas.
Finally, check my Christmas Fashion Story to see how I wore the Ugly Christmas Jumper during the Christmas Week in 2016. I wore it under the Christmas tree and on the streets of Ljubljana.
