Ugly Christmas Sweater Season

By Tuesday, December 10, 2013 30 , , , , Permalink 0

It is that time of the year: Ugly Christmas Sweater Season! Who doesn’t love to wear ugly sweaters that most of us secretly do like? Yup, I do have a couple of Ugly Christmas Sweaters in my closet that I wouldn’t mind wearing during winter. As a matter of fact, I have worn a red christmas sweater to the store which gained me a few stares.It wasn’t ugly, really.

Well, I was contacted a few days ago by Ugly Christmas Sweater offering me the opportunity o reviewing a couple of their Christmas sweaters and, well, I couldn’t pass it down!

I received two of my top three options. My utmost favorite is their BALLS sweater, it is simple and hilarious and not ugly at all but you can always add some pom poms here and there to ugly-fy it.

These are the two Christmas sweaters I received:


Ugly Christmas Sweater – Stars and Santa

Ugly Christmas Sweater - Santa and Stars This is my favorite of the two we received. I must say that it is a men’s sweater, hence why it fits so loosely on my. That and it is a large.

The Stars and Santa Ugly Christmas Sweater has made all the stops: pom poms, cutouts, Christmas tree, and, of course, Santa himself! I actually think this sweater is quite cute. I would wear it on a daily basis, during the winter.

My husband has also worn it a couple of times. He even wore it once to a class he gave at Western Washington University.

Ugly Christmas Sweater - Santa and Stars The sweater is lightweight yet warm. Perfect for your annual ugly Christmas sweater party, for your everyday errands, or just for lounging on the couch all day!


Ugly Christmas Sweater – Cardigan with Lights

Ugly Christmas Sweater - Light Up SweaterWhat else is there to make an ugly sweater even uglier? Flashing red lights! The Cardigan with Lights could definitely win you the prize of ugliest sweater.

This cardigan runs big, as in huge. It is a size L just like the other sweater but it feel more like a XL. It is still nice and comfortable.

It is lightweight but still a bit heavier than the Stars and Santa sweater. I wish it had pockets though.

Ugly Christmas Sweater - Light Up SweaterThe sweater comes with two battery packs (left and right) which illuminate red light scattered all over the front of the sweater. I have encountered a few issues with the battery pack but I guess it is due to the battery pack not being fasten securely to the sweater. It might be tough to attach it somehow since you want to be able to change the batteries if need be without destroying the sweater itself, right?


If you are looking for the perfect Ugly Christmas Sweater make sure to visit and see what they have. And if you get the “Balls” sweater you must show it off to me!! I think that sweater is amazing! Now, they only have to make its version in boxers 😀

    I love that the sweater lights up. I am trying to convince our friends to do a ugly sweater party. These would be perfect.

    The Ugly Christmas Sweater trend really cracks me up. I remember as a child doing anything and everything you could to get out of wearing one and when I did get forced to, I’d spill or something on purpose, now everyone wants one! lol lol

    Those look nice on you though and I don’t think they are ugly. I’ve seen way way worse! 🙂

    I have to say I will never wear an ugly sweater. Living in Florida I have to cram as many sweaters into the few cool days we have, there is no time to waste a day on an ugly one, lol.

    I just think they’re extra, extra, extra Christmas-y but not necessarily ugly! But I think the term is more playful than serious anyhow.

    The popularity of ugly Christmas sweaters crack me up. I really like that it lights up. I mean it doesn’t get much more tacky than a light up sweater.

    I also think the first sweater is cute. But the second one with the lights, now I think that is an ugly sweater.

    Oh my heavens! Ugly sweater is sure getting a lot of popularity. LOL! I actually do think the first one is quite cute too and it is something I too would wear during winter. Why not! It is acceptable since it is the season. 🙂 Cute! Pair it with leggings or skinny jeans and with a pair of awesome boots and you will be rocking it. I might look for some ugly sweaters at the thrift store myself.

    What’s funny is the more ugly Christmas sweaters become a joke, the more I actually like them.
