Man of Style: Surviving Ugly Sweater Season
December 5, 2017
If you consider yourself someone of impeccable style, you may have a love-hate relationship with this time of the year. It’s a great time to pull out your favorite winter gear, but you may not be excited by the number of ugly sweater parties you get invited to.
The best way to make it through this month, is not to reject the spirit, but to simply embrace it.
If there is one month of the year you should feel encouraged to dress outside of your comfort zone, it is definitely in the month of December where any risky clothing decision can be excused as fervent holiday spirit.
Many people treat dressing themselves as a way of personally expressing themselves. Refusing to wear a festive sweater on the basis of principle seems like a weird message to send.
This is especially true considering how many cool and creative Christmas sweaters are out there.
You can most likely find a holiday sweater that not only reflects the season but also reflects your tastes and personality. There are many pop culture themed Christmas sweaters ranging from the likes of Star Wars to the Nightmare Before Christmas.
So, next time you are invited to an ugly sweater party, think about how to impress by doing the exact opposite of how you would with how you dress.
Instead of dressing up in the most stylish clothing you can pull from your closet, aim to buy the ugliest sweater you can find. That’s definitely one way of drawing eyes.
