You found a winner! Now it's time to get drunk on eggnog and listen to bad karaoke.
However, what are you going to wear with this holiest of nasty-ass acrylic frankenstein of a garment? Now you gotta add in some fashion, but still have fun with your look.
Below I put together a few looks to add a bit of fashion girl sensibility so you can stand out among the back-of-the-rack ugly christmas sweaters.
Behold! I dug this beauty up at the arc; I was so proud of my find. It even came complete with a mystery stain and shoulder pads. Winner!
|Can't you just smell the thrift store mustyness?|
|Of course there's a snowman on the back, it just wouldn't be right without him.|
Keepin' it Casual
Layer your new gem over a long button up for a classic but cool look and pair with leather leggings. Killer heels take this sweater look up a notch to add a bit of sexiness where there would otherwise be nothing but celibacy.
Rock n' Roll
You don't want to lose your edge even though you're wearing the equivalent of a church lady who's decided to go 'crazy' this season and bedazzle the crap out of everything because it's 'festive'. So to remedy the soft squishy snowmen cramping your style, add your favorite band tee and acid wash jeans to keep the cool factor up. Spiked strappy heels only add to the badass vibe. Don't let the man get you down girl.
Embracing the Sparkle
Alright, so you've decided to go with it and have some fun. More sequins please! A leather a-line skirt keeps the sparkle in check and the lace pointed flats give off effortless french girl chic. Don't forget matching sparkling accessories, no space is safe from sparkle!
