12 Ugly Xmas Sweaters That Are Actually Perfect For The Holiday

It’s that time of year again! Now that we’ve given thanks and stuffed our faces with the endless amount of turkey and pecan pie, it’s time we get serious about something way more important—our Xmas ensemble. The invites to your office, best friend and family holiday parties are pouring in, and the big question is “What Should I Wear?”

It’s that one time a year, similar to Halloween, where you can get away with wearing something that is 100% not suitable for any other occasion.  For those on the lighthearted side and seeking an Ugly, and by ugly I mean the most adorable and funny, Christmas Sweater I got you covered, literally.

I’ve scanned the Amazon site for some of my favorites and came across so many gems. The best part is, if you feel you’re late or didn’t have a chance to buy one you can order one off the Amazon site and receive it with Amazon Prime (AKA Two Day Shipping!) This year my friends and I are having a holiday party over, and are having an Ugly Xmas Sweater contest. Luckily for me I have more than 1 option that will secure the top spot.

I rounded 12 of my favorite Ugly Christmas Sweaters that you should wear to your family/friends/colleagues holiday parties. You can shop each one with a link below the photo! Happy Holidays!

Jacket, Turtleneck, Trousers, ShoesTed Baker

Before I jet out of New York City for the next two weeks I had the chance to partner with Ted Baker and wear their new holiday collection. I’m typically the type to wear a suit for the holidays but wanted to change it up this season. Dressing up with tailored trousers, a turtleneck and keeping it casual with a leather bomber (but, make sure it’s not the traditional black, go for a bold festive color, like burgundy red or hunter green). Oh, and for the holiday perhaps pair it with a menorah or a xmas tree backdrop instead of the NYC skyline. Happy Holidays, kids!

And, here is the third & FINAL part of the TMM for Details X Zegna Part III. Focusing, again, on Zegna’s killer outwear, specifically this navy wool peacoat. This jacket is possibly my favorite out of three, as it is more of an essential and can be utilized during the frigid weather. Plus, its perfect for layering! With this look, I layered the jacket with a printed shirt topped with a hunter green knit sweater. Although my modeling career ran short, it was awesome while it lasted. Now, I’m off to Galavant around NYC as a new 22-year-old.
