Ugly Christmas Sweater Party season has crept up on us in a blink of an eye. While everyone is rushing out to buy their cliché Dabbing Santa sweater, don’t feel compelled to follow. The holidays are a great time to express your creativity and think outside of the box. Not only is there room for creativity, but you can finally wear those festive pieces that have been harboring dust in the back of your closet all year long. Here are some ideas to make sure you are the best dressed at this year’s Ugly Sweater Party.
1. Crop Sweater + Skirt
Many people will pair their sweater with a pair of leggings and booties or form fitting jeans and knee high boots. A cropped sweater paired with a high waisted skirt is the perfect outfit for flirting between the lines of edgy and casual. Whether you decide to pair your shirt with a mini, circle, or midi skirt, it will look amazing with your ugly sweater.
2. Ugly Sweater Makeup
Yes, the theme is Ugly Sweater, however this is still a holiday party which means super glam. This is one of the few times of the year you are actually allowed to use that beautiful emerald green and without hesitation. It is safe to say that highlighter won the product of the year award, so bring on the shimmer.
3. Statement Piece
If you can't find a sweater, embelish your look with some kind of adornment.f you plan on wearing a bun to your Ugly Christmas Sweater party feel free to turn it into a Reindeer bun with a red pom poms, brown pipe cleaner and googly eyes. Give the people something to talk about!
4. Leather Leggings
Though many people wear leather year around, now is the perfect time for leather accents. Not only does it keep you warm, but it is super stylish. Leather pants or the popular liquid leather legging look great if you are looking to tone down your loud sweater. Leather pants with silver or gold details is a great way to amp up an outfit that is lacking some umph.
5. All Black Everything
If all else fail, go black. Some of us are far too comfortable in our black comfort zones, but black leaves room for accessorizing on a totally different level. Cute holiday hats, gloves, and scarves will spice up your all black, and show off the versatility in your wardrobe. You can never have enough jewelry around holiday season, so bring out the charm bracelets and holiday pins that you have been saving for this moment.
