Remember opening wrapped presents from your aunt Eunice or from your MeeMaw (grandma) and then finding the most festive knitted sweater they have spent hours making? Since they have spent a ton of time making these outshine your Christmas decorations at home, you try your best to fake a smile and express gratitude for the gift. Worse yet, they ask you to try it on and ask you if your are comfortable under all those sequins, yarn and applique.
Well, things have changed.
In the past few years, the ugly Christmas Sweater has ironically become a sweeping trend in the country. Even today, ugly sweaters bring laughter and are a topic of conversation in office parties, get-together celebrations, and family reunions. Businesses have actually been built around providing men and women a way to get sweaters like grandma used to sew.
We have searched high and low on the web for the ugliest, ugly sweaters and have found our top 10 ugliest ugly sweaters ever. Since “ugly sweaters” are now commercially available, we made sure we only choose the ones which took some blood and sweat to make. After all, it is the love that goes into these sweaters that make them valuable.
These sweaters take the 10th place. We appreciate the 3d effect of the print as well as the embossed embellishments. What makes these unique is the bottom of the tree that also allows for some good crotch cover if you choose to wear it with some colorful leggings.
From its base sweater to the miniature Santa Clause bursting from your stomach like a necromorph this sweater is a definite top 10 contender. Even the Santa Claus at the sweater’s front wants to not be a part of this creation. Just look at the agony in his face.
Why settle with a sweater when you can have a sweater-vest. Pair it with your tight fitting skin tone shirts and you have an ugly sweater-vest every woman in the party will love.
Another plus for creativity! The tie and muffs paired with this sweater make them a unique entry to our top 10. Protect your forearms from the cold and hide that holiday belly from view with a tie as wide as your hips. These are one of a kind and will definitely make you turn heads. P.S. Best worn with some colorful wigs.
What’s better than a Christmas tree on a sweater? How about a sad Christmas tree made from the trail of what appears to be a ghost from this year’s Halloween. Add a little happy tree on your shoulder and you will surely have someone to talk with throughout your office party.
This definitely needs to be in the top 10 for the most realistic depiction of a leg on a sweater. The lights actually work and the leg lamp or leg on the lamp is a sure crowd pleaser. Who would not want to dance or sit with someone who has a woman’s leg on his chest, right?
Rudolf puking his guts out from eating all those candy canes and ribbons is definitely a good conversation starter. Your office mates will never fail to see you with the blinking lights entangled on his antlers or his glowing red nose. Now, you will never lose your way when it becomes foggy on your way home.
It is not good enough to have a Christmas tree on your sweater. Pull out all the stops and be a tree instead. Paired with a hat and a red skirt, bring the holiday spirit everywhere you go. Be ready for all your friends wanting to have their pictures taken with you.
This sweater has the wow factor of allowing the wearer to transform into a tree with a giant red star in seconds. Who can say no to a sweater with two looks. Stand in a corner and put your arms up and you are now a Christmas tree. Perfect for those who are a little shy at parties. Now you can creep up to your crush or covertly watch as the festivities happen. Don’t forget to rest those arms every now and then to prevent fatigue.
Rudolf is definitely a favorite amongst ugly sweater enthusiasts. This one takes the ball however for making sure his antlers look as disgusting as possible. These tumor like protrusions will definitely make you stand out from the rest. They provide good hand holds for your special someone when dancing and will allows you to shake hands with 4 people all at once. The big red nose on your stomach is also a great place to put your drink on when both your hands are occupied saving someone’s phone number.
