Around the holidays, it is inevitable that you're going to be invited to at least one Ugly Holiday Sweater Party. The concept is fun enough, you're going to a holiday party, but the hosts want you to wear something that looks completely ridiculous. Ugly Holiday Sweaters are like the Cosby sweaters of the Christmas season. Literally nobody can pull them off. All of this is fine IN THEORY until you realize that you have to find an ugly holiday sweater to wear. Weird news: ugly holiday sweaters are EXPENSIVE because there's still a demand for them because of rich old white ladies.
Don't find yourself shelling out $40 for a holiday-themed Alfred Dunner sweater with a snowman on it that you'll literally never wear again. Instead, get this Instant Ugly Holiday Sweater Kit ($10, KarmaLoop) that features a bunch of patches that you can affix to any plain shirt or sweater you have lying around (or purchased for $2 at the thrift store). You're ready to party now. Just take it easy on the egg nog.
