Styling an ugly Christmas sweater

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 styling is SO cute, Lisa! That hat is perfect (you look like a little nutcracker), and the skirt, belt and knee socks are such great elements. I love the fact that the sweater used to light up, haha!

    Perfect pairing with the polka dots. ^_^ Also, I may be the only person who thinks that sweater is cute as opposed to ugly. :D

    Oh my, the cutest Lisa! Actually I wouldn’t have even thought to be an ugly Christmas sweater because you worked it so stylishly into your outfit. It totally reminds me of a Nutcracker character! And that hat is really the bees knees….what a special hand me down from your great grandmother. I’ve never been to an ugly Christmas sweater party, but seeing this makes me want to throw one, ha!

    For some reason, I feel this outfit has a bit of a Russian twist to it, but I love it. Never thought an “ugly Christmas Sweater” would work so well. I went to my first ugly sweater party this year!
