It's Monday and this weekend (hopefully) marks the last of the Christmas party rounds. If one of those party invites was given the dreaded “ugly sweater” title, I got you! Instead of pairing your sweater with jeans and some variation of ridiculous holiday headgear (santa hat, reindeer ears...eww) like everyone else...stand out and actually look hot by taking advantage of the fun outfit opportunity. You'll get off the chart compliments and won't have to spend the next day untagging facebook pics.
When picking your sweater I recommend a solid color with graphics instead of a super-busy, patch-work style. Pair with cute, embellished cut-offs and tuck in the front of the sweater to create a more flattering waistline and avoid the "boxy-body" look. Wear sheer black tights underneath and add some cool high top sneakers for a dash of street-cred. A messy top knot and pretty tear drop earrings balance out a turtle neck sweater and elongate the neck. Holographic, in-your-face nail polish? Yes. What?? A "Christmas Pudding" clutch? All kinds of holiday-party festive! Cheers!
