So what exactly is the big commotion and craze behind the ugly christmas sweater? Is it the comically large prints of reindeer, snowmen and all sorts of Christmas applique or perhaps just a huge holiday statement odd enough to make you standout? I mean isn’t a sweater a garment that has been around for decades? If that’s what you’re thinking, and your thought is completely correct, let me just fill you in on the latest trend (which by the way has been around for quite sometime now). Whatever the exact reason behind this now very popular trend for the holidays, it’s definitely worth knowing how it started and why it’s become so popular. Back in the day and even now, what we label as “ugly” used to be one of those typical gifts we would receive from either our grandparents or even parents (myself included) because they thought it was just too adorable. Now that same sweater has become a popular theme for holiday parties where the uglier the sweater the better you look. In a way I think it’s a brilliant idea because you wont have to worry about what to wear, and it will be about the only time where looking odd is totally acceptable.
Even celebrities like Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Matt Damon and many many more have been in on this trend, so please not even for one minute think you’re alone.
