When I think Ugly Christmas Sweater, those grandma sweaters with Christmas cats and applique ornaments come to mind. I like the idea of a nod to nostalgia, a bit of kitsch, an humorous holiday fun. Jolly puppies in Santa hats on knitted cardigans aren’t quite my style, though, so I prefer to find my holiday wear at UglyChristmasSweater.com. The folks at UglyChristmasSweater.com offer a wide selection of Ugly Christmas Sweaters that range from outrageous, to silly, to naughty, to sweet; all in sizes suited to fit you much better than granny’s jumper.
I knew immediately upon clicking on women’s Ugly Christmas Sweaters that a cultural reference would be for me. As a self-proclaimed Potter-head, I immediately found the Harry Potter sweater. I liked it, but it wasn’t quite whimsical enough for me.
Then I found the classic National Lampoon Griswold Sweater, Can you imagine this sweater with lights added for $9.99? It would be Griswold perfection!
I also spied the Elf Buddy Santa I Know Him sweater and immediately thought of the 4 Elf food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup.
But then I spotted the Where’s Waldo Snow Mountain sweater with the red collar and cuffs and it won me over. This sweater reminded me of both my childhood and time spent in London finding “Where’s Wally?” on the train. My only regret? Not ordering the lights.
I didn’t really think through how awkward having people search for Waldo on a sweater could. Thankfully, only my husband has searched so far and I’ve received tons of compliments on my fun, colorful shirt.
I was excited to see not only women’s styling, but larger sizes offered as well. Based on many reviews suggesting to size up, I ordered a 2x. While the sweater fit is fine, the sleeves are a bit long and it doesn’t have the oversize sweater feeling I expected. Keep in mind as well that “sweater” is a fairly loose term here. My Ugly Christmas Sweater in 100% cotton would be more accurately labeled a sweatshirt and a relatively light-weight one.
If sweaters aren’t your thing, you can also find a Sequin X-Mas Lights Blazer, sweaters with stuffed animals protruding out the front and back, winter leggings and pajama suits. I would love to put my family in matching pajama suits for Christmas! Cozy, festive, and funny all one. Now that I’m looking at them again with their hoodies and footies, I may need one of those pajama suits after all.
If you want to treat yourself, a family member, or friend to something fun and festive this season, you can find men’s and women’s sweaters and pajamas at UglyChristmasSweater.com.
