@knvprincess143: I’m 26 and I saw a Christmas sweater this week that I thought was cute. I asked myself the same question… should I be afraid? I thought it would be cute to take cheesy christmas portraits wearing them. It was a half-joke but I was half-serious too. :/

I have ONE holiday sweater that I save for the office Christmas party, and it’s a red cowl neck sweater with a bit of red sequins on the cuffs.  That’s it.  That’s about as holiday-ish I’ll get… there’s one girl who always wears light-up Christmas bulb necklaces and earrings.

I haven’t felt at home in department stores for a long time.  I tend to shop places like Eddie Bauer, Gap, and Old Navy.  (I’m 35, By The Way.)

I asked myself the same question when I was at the mall this weekend, and I saw this sweater and thought to myself, “ohmygod i NEED it.”

My mom has been wearing ugly Christmas sweaters since before I can remember.  :-

I have a cream-colored sweater that I wear with a red scarf.  That’s my festive clothing.

@knvprincess143:  Snowflakes aren’t bad.  That’s less Christmas and more just seasonal.  It’s the same way that you might wear flowers in the spring.  You can totally get away with snowflake earrings.

@knvprincess143:  I would totally wear those!!! 

I think the issue is more the cut, decor and color.  Not every holiday decorated sweater can be deemed “an ugly Christmas sweater.”  I love snowmen and scarves, so the bright colored ones up there are super cute to me.

Don’t hate me if you or someone you know wears this, but this I deem an ugly Christmas sweater:


And this I think could be sophisticated if done correctly:

@knvprincess143: I LOVE these!

Personally, I’m the person who will wear the “hideous” shirt, simply because it IS hideous and it’s funny. I was talking about it with my boss, she’s an older lady, and she just laughed and said that she had MANY gems in her closet!

I feel terrible saying it, but one of my Aunts- I have only ever seen her wearing ONE sweater.  I guess I have only ever seen her on Thansgiving, Christmas, and Easter.  Each time she is always wearing a red Christmas sweater with a white snowflake on it.  This year, I think Darling Husband and I are going to make a bet.  It must just be her favorite holiday sweater…
