Best Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Women

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and looking absolutely absurd in front of every single one of them. Since it’s probably a bad idea to reach for your old SantaCon outfit, deck yourself out with these festive sweaters and ring in the season with perfectly questionable style.

Oh, Christmas tree! Be the star-on-top of your holiday gathering with this ridiculous (and by that we mean amazing) acrylic cardigan. Actual ornaments dangle on the front, while real tinsel wraps from front to back. Despite all the trimmings, this over-the-top choice is—joy to the world—machine washable. Just convince other guests that the presents are supposed to go under you and you’re all set.

Blizzard Bay Women’s Ugly Christmas Sweater

Though appropriate to wear around all ages, we can’t predict whether your kids will think you’re totally hip or totally lame. (Which…exactly.) Either way, they and others will smile when they see the trio featured on this pull-on sweater. Frosty looks ready to rap your favorite carol, Rudolph shows off his dabbing skills, and the penguin serves as a spirited side-kick. The neckline cut-out adds an unexpected feminine touch.

There is A LOT going on with this crew neck—and that’s exactly why we like it. Classic Fair Isle touches are layered above a parade of evergreens and a gentle reminder to your special someone that you’re up for meeting them “under the mistletoe.” It’s lightweight and longer than many other picks out there, giving you enough coverage to pair this with some leggings. You get us, Santa. You really get us.
