Christmas

Who can resist an ugly Christmas sweater? They’re so wrong that they’re right. It’s the reason that ugly holiday sweater parties are must-attend events year after year. As much as we love our fugly sweaters, we cannot forget about the ones that are actually pretty. Combining festive cheer with a chic silhouette can be tricky to do, but these sweaters do it well.

3. Squad Goals Christmas Sweater ($18, Missguided)

Squad

There are a lot of things with #squadgoals plastered on them, but only a few of them have a holiday twist.

PJ sweater? More like wear-all-of-the-time sweater. If you have a cat lover on your holiday shopping list, make sure you get a sweater for them.

5. Bow Print Sweater ($54.90, Torrid)

Your sweater doesn’t have to scream “holidays.” This one takes a more subtle approach with the sweet bow design. However, that red color makes it appropriate for any Christmas party.

6. Florence Gold Glitter Slogan Jumper ($26, Boohoo)

The holidays are the perfect time to bring out the bubbly so this sweater is very appropriate. Plus, the black and gold color combination is very chic.

7. Sweater with Motif ($19.99, H&M)

This sweater doesn’t just have any old motif. It has a sloth dressed up in ear warmers and its own holiday sweater. You’re welcome.

8. Polar Bear Emoji Baggy Beach Jumper ($98, Wildfox)

If you don’t think this is cute, you’re lying. The polar bear’s face is so adorable, you’re tempted to pinch it. It doesn’t matter that you know that the polar bear isn’t real.

9. Style & Co Reindeer Graphic Sweater ($23.99, Macy’s)

style

This sweater may have a minimalist design, but it is anything but basic. Note the fuzzy eyelash applique and the sequins on the reindeer antlers.

10. Ted Baker London Merry Woofmas Fair Isle Pullover ($195, Nordstrom)

Fair Isle is a classic look for the holidays. This sweater has a unique touch thanks to the addition of some sweet doggies.

The only thing we love more than a festive pun is a festive pun with a throwback nod. This is so good. Sleigh my name, sleigh my name.
