6 Ideas for Ugly Christmas Sweater Outfits
You don’t have to wear your Christmas sweaters just once to an ugly Christmas sweater party. Wear your Christmas gear on repeat using this styling guide for ugly Christmas sweater outfits.
People say they’re ugly, but we think they’re cute enough to wear again and again. Don’t limit yourself to wearing your thrifted Christmas sweaters once every year. Collect them and wear them all December by trying these different Christmas sweater outfits.
If you want to start your own ugly Christmas sweater collection shop our Goodfair finds. Each order will surprise you with its unique Christmas-y design, and you’ll love the surprise of opening your package.
We have some styling tips that go beyond the elf hat and jeans look. Not that there’s anything wrong with wearing an elf hat--we just think Christmas sweaters have so much more fashion potential. And wearing items more than once improves the environmental footprint of those items.
You don’t have to spend lots of money to create these looks, either. Most of these items you probably have in your closet already, or you can find them at Goodfair.
Christmas sweater outfit ideas
1. Tuck your Christmas sweater into jeans
Tucked in sweaters are a very good thing. Sweaters look super cute this way because it accentuates your natural waistline. This look works best with Christmas sweaters that have repeated designs and don’t have a lot of writing on the bottom.
Add Christmas socks, your favorite sneakers and a stocking hat and you’ve created an easy, warm winter look that you can wear everyday.
2. Oversized ugly sweater with track pants, sneakers and bling
When you want to wear your christmas sweater with a sportier look, try it with track pants. Choose your flashiest pair of sneakers and add a gold chain, hoops or some sparkly tinsel for added bling.
If you want to add more layers, throw on an oversized parka or flannel over the Christmas sweater.
3. Oversized Christmas sweater over tights as a dress
We’ve all seen Bella Hadid wear her sweatshirts as dresses. You can easily recreate this look with a Christmas sweater, too. If you’re feeling cold, just throw on some tights. Style it with your favorite shoes, whether boots or sneakers.
4. Ugly Christmas sweater over a buttoned up flannel
This look works well for a more polished look for styling a Christmas sweater. It’s great for when you want to add some humor to a more serious look with your sweater. Style it with boots and a Corduroy or leather jacket.
5. Wear your ugly Christmas sweater under overalls or a jumper
This look combines two pieces you might not have known were a perfect match. The colorful patterns of a Chritsmas sweater look amazing under the onesie style of overalls or a jumper.
6. Wear it with sweatpants tucked into socks
Kanye West started wearing his sweat pants tucked into socks and it became a thing. You can do this too with your ugly Christmas sweater. It gives it a super cozy vibe.
