Twelve "Ugly" Christmas Sweaters Worth Rocking

Let’s be honest here: The goal of an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party is not to actually look ugly. In fact, you want to look cute—in an effortless, unique and quirky way, of course. These “ugly Christmas sweaters” are not so much ugly, but they definitely fit the bill for any holiday party this year. Just throw it on over a flirty black circle skirt or some skinny jeans, and be on your merry way.

O, Christmas Tree! This one is just plain cute, with little Christmas trees all over. And did I mention the trees are all filled with sequins? Yeah. It’s basically the perfect Christmas sweater.

To buy, Topshop, $45


Simplicity. Yes, this sweater is a reindeer face, and that’s pretty much it. It’s cute, though, and super endearing in it’s simplicity and borderline tackiness. Plus, the green is perfect for the holidays. I’d definitely rock it.

To buy, ASOS, $45


Skiers. This is just adorable. I’ll take it and wear it to my day on the slopes.

To buy, J.Crew, $98


Reindeer Sweater. You can never go wrong with some fair isle print and reindeer on a Christmas sweater. The print on this one is just wrong enough to be right. Paired with some black leggings and boots, the sweater is allowed to do all of the talking. And oh how it does.

To buy, Oasap, $20


Fair Isle. No Christmas sweater collection is complete without a classic fair isle print. This one kicks it up a notch with the fuzz factor. I would so rock this on a cold winter’s night.

To buy, Urban Outfitters, $69


Ironic Xmas. I always love a good ironic piece. This XMAS sweater fits the bill, because you guys, it’s totally not an XMAS sweater.

To buy, River Island, $60


Christmas Scene. Oh, this one is just darling, with the little Christmas scene around the neck. The cream color is perfect to go with anything, too.

To buy, ASOS, $61


Snowflakes! I love the subtlety of this sweater. It’s Christmas-y, but it’s not in-your-face Christmas-y. And it’s adorable.

To buy, Loft, $59.50


Fair Isle Neck. I’m digging the festive neck fair isle print on this sweater. No one will question that you are in the Christmas spirit when you wear this one!

To buy, Old Navy, $25


Black and white. The size of the reindeer is what makes this sweater awesome. It’s unapologetically festive, but it’s also black and white, so you can feel chic at the same time.

To buy, H&M, $15


Naughty or nice? It’s a simple question, and now you can wear it on your sweater. The Santa hat really drives this one home as a sure-fire hit.

To buy, River Island, $70

Fa La La. In case anyone questions if you are in the Christmas spirit, I think this sweater will answer that for you. Bonus points if you break into song throughout the day, too. “Deck the halls with boughs of holly…”

To buy, Hollister, $40
