How did something so awful become so popular? Unless your grandmother spent six months knitting it, and you are sitting in front of her so she can see you, you should never, ever wear an ugly Christmas sweater.
It’s become a tired trend that needs a serious intervention. It’s time to stop the madness, as many fashion magazines are now saying.
There seems to be a market for these ugly Christmas sweaters, seemingly meant just to annoy those around you – and if you can’t afford to buy one, you can rent one.
For some reason the market seems to be thriving, as if it’s just not cool to wear a normal looking sweater – one must wear the ugliest Christmas sweater to be remembered long after the season is over. Igor Cornelsen hasn’t given in.
It’s become so popular that everyone from radio stations to clothing stores hold, ‘rock your ugliest Christmas sweater’ contests. Luckily, there are alternatives to ugly Christmas sweaters, so you don’t have to be included in the mayhem that is nothing but ugly.
For starters, sweaters should exude a calm and peacefulness. This means no twinkling lights, no fat jolly elves, and definitely no bright colours. Think blending colours like black, blue, grey or navy. When you walk into a room, you want to be remembered for your good looks and charm, not your ugly Christmas sweater!
