Let's get one thing straight: nobody actually wants to look ugly at the ugly-Christmas-sweater party. The goal is to look festive and appropriately attired without trying too hard - and while still looking cute enough to mix and a-mingle during "Jingle Bell Rock." That's a tall order, but it's nothing one of these sweaters can't help you accomplish.
From the bold sparkle on one very cool cardigan to some serious Christmas cheer on a sweet reindeer-faced knit, these are merry and bright and decidedly cool. Plus, if you're a Home Alone fan, there's a sweater you've got to see to believe. Holiday parties are coming up faster than you can blink, and you don't want to be caught wearing something you feel neutral about. So, get into the holiday spirit, and shop our picks!
