I spent the weekend with my giant calendar that I keep on my kitchen counter and adding in ALL of the holiday festivities that we have planned in the next two weeks. As I was adding in the dates and times of flights for family, work parties, and concerts, I realized that I don’t have one, or even two, but THREE Ugly Christmas Sweater parties. This isn’t my first year going to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party, but it is the first year that I have an ugly (but hysterical) sweater to actually wear, so I’m stoked.
I teamed up with several of my favorite blogging friends in Utah and Tipsy Elves (you may recognize them from Shark Tank) to share with you several ideas on how to style your ugly sweaters this holiday season. I mean, I know it seems pretty straightforward – throw on your ugly sweater and call it a day! But, this is Christmas after all, and still a holiday party, and I plan on ROCKING my sweater. There’s no shame in making your ugly sweater stylish, right?
How to Style an Ugly Christmas Sweater
- First of all, don’t be embarrassed! Pull out that confidence and ROCK that ugly sweater. At my first ever Ugly Christmas Sweater party, I was SO self-conscious. I knew everyone would be wearing ugly sweaters, too, but I was still nervous that they would think I looked ridiculous in mine. Not saying that I think I’m “all that,” but I have found a new confidence in rocking things that make me happy, and my ugly sweater from Tipsy Elves makes me SO happy. I am ALL about the punny sayings. My sweater says “Feliz Navidog” and it seriously makes me laugh EVERY time I look at it, so I’m going to ROCK that sweater AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE (see what I did there?)
- Going to a casual party? Skinny Jeans and booties all the way. This is how I plan to wear my sweater to my work party – I want to let my sweater speak for itself and keep it simple with jeans and booties. (P.S. I just got these jeggings from American Eagle and they may be the best pair of jeans I’ve put on my body. Not even kidding.)
- Snazz it up with curls or a bold lip. Sweaters are cozy, but you can still glam it up by curling your hair or putting on a bright red lip!
