If you’ve been reading LLB for a while you probably know that I am Christmas obsessed (you can catch all my Christmas posts this year under my “holiday” tab).  Give me all the Christmas decor, festive food & drink, and yes, Christmas fashion. I love ugly Christmas sweater parties – they’re an excuse to hang out with your friends during the busy holiday season and it’s fun to wear something super dorky.

Today I wanted to share the details of our outfits, tips on what to wear to an ugly Christmas sweater party (it’s more than just the sweater folks!), and of course my ‘top picks’ for what to wear. ** Christmas Sweater options updated December 2020**

Alex is a huge Star Wars fan, so this finding a way to mix Star Wars and Christmas was the easiest and best way to get him into an ugly Christmas Sweater lol. I went with this penguin Christmas sweater because I love the colors and the 3-D appliques.

When it comes to what to wear to an ugly Christmas sweater party there’s so much more you can have fun with than just sweater. Look for:

For the accessories for our outfits we opted for a light up Christmas beanie for Alex (it’s from Shoppers Drug Mart) and I went with giant stocking statement earrings. I’m also wearing slippers with jingle bells on them, which have sold out (but I’ll link other options below!)
