You can get tired of the candy canes, the elaborate decorations, and endless shopping lists. But there’s one thing that stands the test of time every holiday and that’s the ugly sweater. Sure, it’s predictable, guady, and a downright cliche. It doesn’t, however, come close to the amounts of joy you bring to yourself and to others when spotting (or sporting) a tacky knitted top covered with snowflakes, reindeer, or gingerbread men. So since wearing an eyesore of a sweater is as much of a tradition as it is to hang up your stockings by the fireplace, we’ve found the best — or rather ugliest — sweaters for you to rock at your slew of holiday shindigs. Dress code requirement or not, you’ll definitely be the life of the party. Get your ugly shopping on in the slideshow above!
