The holiday season is underway, and the popular tradition of wearing an ugly sweater is here again. Whether you’re going to an office party or family event, many of you will be wearing these ugly sweaters by choice, even if it’s not the theme of the gathering.
At one time, ugly holiday sweaters were a dreaded gift often presented by a clueless great aunt. But in the age of irony, they’ve been embraced. There are more faux “ugly” sweaters than ever before, and many are actually kind of stylish.
Since these ugly sweaters are quirky anyway, it makes sense that the style would lend itself to being transformed into geeky themes as well.
