wear your ugly christmas sweater often.

Tacky? Over the top? Totally cliche? The answer is yes, yes, and yes. Despite this, the ugly Christmas sweater has remained a seasonal staple. For good reason. There is something so endearing about these sweaters. They take you back to a simpler time. They don't take themselves too seriously. And most importantly? Ugly Christmas Sweaters are fun. This is especially important as we creep closer to the holiday season. Having fun (and not taking everything so seriously) is a definite must.

Maybe you have a work event in the near future. Or an Ugly Christmas Sweater party. Or just plan to rock a fabulous sweater on your next shopping trip. Whatever the reason...a holiday sweater is likely in your future. So glam it up! There are plenty of simple ways to add a little oomph to that traditional piece. Think edgy extras and ultra sophisticated accessories. The combination will take your sweater to a more fashionable place.

To show you what I mean, I decided to create a set. It is all about adding glamour to your Ugly Christmas Sweater. I chose a pair of wet look leggings and metallic shoes to create contrast. Then I infused a touch of glitz and glam with a small white purse, a soft pink blush, and gorgeous dangling earrings. Take a look and let me know what you think!

The Ugly Christmas Sweater will be everywhere this holiday season. Now that the countdown is is time to think about styling. My advice? Pair your sweater with fashionable pieces and well placed accessories. You will look amazing wherever you go. 

How do you style your Christmas sweaters? What do you think of this set?

  8. I think that wearing a Christmas sweater is not so much about how it looks but how it feels.. It is cosy and I feel warm and relaxed... remind me of being lazy and getting good food while being with my family. However, I love how you have spiced it up and made it more chic:P... Love the combination with the leggings.

    LOVE, Daisy-Fashion Memos.
