Ever since Bridget Jones’s Darcy donned an ugly reindeer jumper, we’ve all been fascinated with tacky Christmas sweaters. But after a few ugly-sweater parties, and giving my share of ugly white-elephant gifts, a Christmas miracle has happened:
I now think ugly sweaters are kind of cute.*
But this is LA, so even when we’re being ironically ugly, we still like to look good.
And it’s possible. The patterns, the prints, the colors—they’re all fun and festive and sometimes downright flattering.
Just by following a few rules, you can still be a sexy vixen in a Christmas sweater. (But more like Vixen, Santa’s 4th reindeer.)
Mix patterns with 2 or 3 like colors and pair a large print with a small print.
Take the sweater pattern head-to-mistletoe in a smart, slim suit.
Pair your silly sweater with something haute and sparkly.
Commit to a theme. Nothing goes better with Ugly Darth than adorable R2D2 earrings.
And have a merry, ugly Christmas!
*Ugly-Cute, like Pugs. Or Pigs. Or Sloths.
