India Yaffe

Let's get one thing straight: nobody actually wants to look ugly in a so-called "ugly Christmas sweater." The goal is to look festive and appropriately attired without trying too hard - and while still looking cute enough to mix and a-mingle during "Jingle Bell Rock." That's a tall order, but it's nothing one of these sweaters can't help you accomplish.

Complete with bold sparkles to some serious Christmas cheer, these fashion pieces are merry, bright, and decidedly cool. Plus, if you're a Peanuts fan, there's a sweater you've got to see to believe. The holidays are coming up faster than you can blink, and you don't want to be caught wearing something you feel neutral about. So get into the holiday spirit, and shop our favorite not-ugly-at-all "ugly Christmas sweaters" ahead!
