For the past few years, the ugly sweater has been making a killer comeback. When the holidays roll around, everyone starts searching for the coolest, rarest, and, ahem, ugliest Christmas sweater out there. People are now even hosting parties where this is the preferred attire, and, honestly, we couldn’t be more excited to see what our friends will wear this year. So, if you are going to be a guest this holiday, or even the happy host of the shindig, we’ve planned a few outfit ideas for you.
First, start out by looking high and low for the best sweater out there. However, we recommend avoiding the expensive clothing stores, and taking a trip to a thrift shop. Release your inner Macklemore and “pop some tags.” Its cheap, fun, and your friends will most likely be dying to know where you found your sweater. Remember, the more bells and furry animals, the better!
Now that you’ve found the perfect top, look for some festive leggings or skinny jeans. If you want to keep it more conservative, slip on some black or brown leggings, but if you are ready to go all out, look for some with a bright holiday pattern. Urban Outfitters or Forever 21 should be your best bets for all us college kids on a budget!
Finally, complete the look with your favorite boots! From warm uggs, to sleek, leather boots, anything can go with leggings. We recommend simple, neutral colors with a cozy fur lining. Just avoid high heels or flip flops! To add a little more flare, find a fun bow and wear it on your head.
Have fun, and Happy Holidays!
