Let’s face it. Unless you did your ugly Christmas sweater shopping in July, there is a good chance that you will not find an appropriately tacky design that hasn’t already been claimed. The fact is, that ever since Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties became a thing, thrift shops and department stores have not been able to meet the demand for vintage knit sweaters.

Thankfully, several fashion designers have taken their own approach to the dorky holiday aesthetic of bygone years, using the same horrible knit patterns we all love to hate. Though most of these sweaters are sized for men, they will work fine for any wearer, as when it comes to ugly sweaters, the more hideous and unshapely, the better.
