10 Not-So-Ugly Holiday Sweaters

’Tis the Season to Be Stylishly Jolly for Once

By Najib Benouar ·
We’re not saying you shouldn’t wear an aggressively festive sweater this holiday season.

You should. But just don’t let it be one of those overwrought mishmashes of church lady tropes you see everywhere these days. You can do this the right way. The stylish way.

Because at the core of the ugly sweater trend is this: a sweater.

And you can find one that has the same wintry mix of snowflakes, Fair Isle or some snowy scene that’s still actually something you’d wear outside of an ironically themed party. As a matter of fact, you can find them here, below:
