Ugly Christmas Sweater Trend

Ugly Christmas Sweaters are catching on in Europe! Last year I went to my first ever Ugly Christmas Sweater Party in the USA, you can read an article I wrote about it in Dutch on BeautyLab.nl here,  and this is the sweater I wore! My boyfriend Chris was so sweet to take these beautiful pictures for me. Click further to get into the festive mood and maybe get inspired to start wearing Ugly Sweaters around Christmas time!

Even though Ugly Christmas Sweaters are catching on in Europe (you can buy them at Primark now!) it is still very possible that you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about right now. Let me explain: the ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater phoneme’ comes from the USA. These wooly sweaters adorned with Santa, Rudolph or anything snowman related are usually worn to Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties, which are  parties on which attendees compete for the grant title of ‘Ugliest Sweater of the Party’. You play games, eat lovely food, chat with each other and sometimes you can even win prices.


A lot of people at Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties go even further then just the sweater itself: they wear ornaments in their hair or ears and adorn themselves with sparkles. I chose to wear red pants in a different color to make the outfit even more ugly! Not sure if that is common as I was the only person doing this haha.

I originally had these pictures posted on my old blog which I have taken down for a while now, but since I really like the photos I felt that not having these on my current blog would be a waste! I hope you enjoyed looking at my Ugly Christmas Sweater Outfit! What do you think about this crazy trend from the USA? Would you wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater?

With Love,

    • Dankjewel! Voor Beautylab heb ik wat meer journalistieke artikels geschreven dan dat ik op mijn eigen blog doe 😀 er staan er nog een paar op, als je bij haar op mijn naam zoekt vind je ze.
