Last week I showed you how to be merry and bright on the holiday social scene. But, what to do when the festive dress code specifies “look ugly”?
Ugly sweater parties are one of my favorite holiday events. It’s free license to be cheeky and ridiculous with your look, but that doesn’t mean you can’t show some style. This weekend, break the rules and look terrible with these tips on embracing everything cheesy about the holidays in your hideous look, without resorting to tinsel-trimmed, lighted sweaters.
I wore a similar outfit to an ugly sweater party and came in second in the “ugliest” contest. Why second you ask? Life lesson, Foxes: a grown man forced by his girlfriend to wear a 1980s holiday cat sweatshirt originally intended for tween girls will beat the most-stylish, least-stylish girl in the room every time. It’s a cruel world.
