“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” This is particularly true when it comes to ugly Christmas sweaters. Not long ago (namely the 80’s), these tacky christmas sweaters were the dreaded Christmas gifts that were only wore out of obligation. But they have recently become a very popular trend (and the “merry Christmas ya filthy animal sweater” also).
Originally starting among the hipster crowd, the ugly Christmas sweaters phenomenon is spreading to more demographics. Picking up on this trend, retail stores are happy to supply. Though many people buy their bulky, ugly and tacky christmas sweaters, others believe they should not be made. Hours are put into designing and embellishing the sweaters, trying to make them more outlandish (as in ugly and tachy) than before.
Many parties now feature ugly Christmas sweaters competitions, encouraging the party goers to throw away their shame and wear their most ridiculously tacky (but comfy) funny Christmas sweaters. If you fall in this category, or you simply really enjoy the esthetics of ugly Christmas sweaters, we’ve gathered some pictures to inspire you on how to make your diy ugly Christmas sweater one to remember.
