This post is brought to you by Target, but all opinions and content are my own. Check in with Target’s Ugly Sweaters with hashtag #hilariousholiday.The holiday season is officially upon us and it’s time again for all the holiday parties and celebrations. No other holiday party celebrates the fun and festive mood of the season like the Ugly Sweater Christmas Party. This sarcastic trend was birthed sometime in the early 2000’s with a steady growth every year with numerous brands coming out with their own. The ugly sweater can now be called a Christmas tradition and a great way to have a #hilariousholiday. Joining with their own line of cool, kitschy, and fun ugly sweaters is Target, whose sweater collection I’d wear beyond any Ugly sweater parties (I love their modern cool update). Are you ready for Target’s #HilariousHoliday?
The above Men’s Skull Sweater is my favorite. It kind of brings to mind a Hell’s Angel getting into the holiday spirit. I’d steal this from the man in my life on any day and the fact that it’s only $17.99, I just might get my own.
Know a guy that has a bit of a potty mouth or “I’m a man” personality (a la Andrew Dice Clay? – seriously can’t you picture him wearing this?) then the “Happy Elfin Holiday” sweater is perfect. I mean…the sweater says it all.
The beauty of the above “Light it up” sweater is that it works for both a nerdy dad or granddad who is serious when it comes to Christmas lights and decorations (a la Clark Griswald) and a young hipster son who may be a fan of……420…lol. Either way, whether they’re wearing any of these “ugly” sweaters, they’ll actually look cool, get lots of compliments and remain a topic of conversation.
One of my favorite Ugly Sweater parties was one I attended with Blackberry and hosted by Michael Strahan in December 2011. He wore a white ugly sweater similar to one Target has in their collection – also $17.99 (the only difference being Michael Strahan’s had snowmen and Target’s has cute kittens), and actually stayed (in that sweater) for the duration of the event.
