Ugly Sweaters You Have to Wear to Your Next Ugly Sweater Party

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at St. John's chapter.

Wearing ugly sweaters to Christmas parties has always been a holiday favorite. Though some Christmas parties warrant you to wear your winter best, there are plenty of occasions, especially with family, that call for more casual and fun outfits. Whether it’s for a holiday party, family holiday card photoshoot, or just to get into the Christmas spirit, ugly sweaters deserve a special spot in your winter wardrobe, especially because they become funnier and funnier every year.

When it comes to picking the perfect ugly Christmas sweater for you, the bolder the better it is. The trend of this year is 3-D accents, funky patterns, and LED lights. The possibilities are endless when it comes to showing your personality through an ugly Christmas sweater, and if you continue to keep it as a tradition, each one seems funnier and uglier than the one the year before. 

Here are some of the funniest and boldest Christmas sweaters that you can wear this year:
