Ugly Christmas Sweater Trend
Let’s be real for a minute. Nobody actually wants to appear ugly even at the party where the sweaters are ugly. The actual goal of ugly Christmas sweaters is to appear festive and attired appropriately while not putting too much effort into getting that look. Remember, you still need to look good enough to get on the dance floor when Jingle Bell Rock comes on. While that might seem to be a tall order, it is nothing that a great ugly Christmas sweater can’t handle. From having a serious bit of Christmas cheer with a sweater that has a reindeer head on it to bold sparkles with some of the ugly Christmas sweater pullovers, these garments are bright, merry and quite cool.
Is this just a fad or is this trend here to stay?
What began as a joke in the North has become a craze in North America that simply doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. It doesn’t matter where you go during the holiday season, you will see at least a few people wearing ugly Christmas sweaters.
The thing is, these people aren’t just raiding granny’s closets to get the vintage holiday looks. They are going out and purposely purchasing these ugly sweaters. Consider this – UglyChristmasSweater.com began in 2012 and had sales that were right at $40,000. This year, the estimated sales are at $5.5 million…yes, that much growth in only 3 years. It is amazing. The ugly Christmas sweaters aren’t your traditional holiday themes either, well some of them are. You can also find these sweaters featuring anything from Star Wars to Guns n Roses. There are sweaters for sports teams rock stars and even for beverage companies.
While it might be a bit too late for you to get with the trends this year and design your own custom ugly Christmas sweater, it is never too early for you to start thinking about and planning your ugly sweater for next year. With enough time, anyone can make sure that they come up with a design that they like and get it made and ready for the 2016 Ugly Christmas Sweater parties.
