Raise your hand if you’ve been invited to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party! *raises hand* Without fail, as soon as December 1st hits the invites to ugly Christmas sweater parties roll in and I scramble to find one that is as much ridiculous as parts fashion. This year, I figured I’d set ugly Christmas sweater season off with tips to make them more bearable since cute ones are hard to come by (and honestly, it’s an ugly sweater for a reason!).
Shop the Look
Tip 1: Sequins. All Sequins.
What’s the holidays without sequins? I paired this cheesy Christmas sweater with a beautiful reverse sequin skirt because if I’m going to go all out, I want to stand out amirite? A sequin skirt makes this dressy and fun, and will definitely be a conversation starter.
Tip 2: Kill The Shoe Game.
The other way I like to dress up my ugly Christmas sweater is to wear jeans and a killer shoe. Sock boots are always a win (if you’re in the colder regions like I am). Also, think festive bows, glitter, velvet, etc.
Tip 3: Accessorize.
When in doubt, accessorize! Stunning earrings and beautiful bags make literally anything feel fancy, ugly sweaters are no exception.
