I’ve actually never been to an Ugly Sweater party, but I was recently challenged by Savers to style one they sent me with a personal twist. And it was a fun challenge, indeed- these don’t get the moniker “ugly sweater” for nothing!
This one must have originally lit up, as there were wires running through the inside, but unfortunately I couldn’t figure out how to activate that feature :) My first plan of attack was to balance out the boxy cut with a short hemline. I chose this polka dot dress because the white was a good contrast with the dark sweater, and it has a collar and the sweater did not. I added a gold belt and rolled up the sleeves to try and give it a little shape.
What do you think? How would you have styled this sweater? Have you been to any Ugly Sweater parties? If you have one coming up, seriously Savers is the place to go- I went shopping there yesterday and they had a dedicated rack of them!This entry was posted in outfits and tagged peter pan collar, polka dots, Savers, ugly Christmas sweater, vintage. ← Ramble on Thrifting a Holiday Outfit with Savers →
