Between extended hours baking cookies at the stove, multiple deadlines before the end of the year, and getting crafty to make handmade gifts for my loved ones Christmas is the busiest most wonderful time of year at Do Sask Headquarters. That doesn’t leave a lot of time to get my outfit ready for the Ugly Christmas Sweater Soiree.
Mixing eggnog into my morning coffee almost totally makes up for it!
If your holiday season is anything like mine, you’re probably wondering where to find the time to put together a prize-winning outfit for the Ugly Christmas Sweater Soiree on December 12 and December 19 at the Hose & Hydrant Pub. Well, not to worry. I’ve done the work for you, so you don’t have to!
Here are some of the tackiest last-minute outfits I could find to inspire your look for the Ugly Christmas Sweater Soiree:
1. Use your tinsel to steal the show as an eye-catching tannenbaum.
You might need a friend to wrap the tinsel around you, or you could tie it around a door knob and spin. Finish the look in 5 minutes or less!
2. Go bow-nanas with a chic take on tacky Christmas DIYs.
Black shirt, leggings, tape and bows. This basic look may take 30 minutes or less with three of your friends taping and sticking.
3. Pimp your beard! Show off that luscious mane with battery-operated string lights.
Once you’re finished weaving the lights into your beard hair, top off this colourful look with a flannel jacket and stylish cap.
4. Channel Lil’ Kim circa 1999 with a holiday spin in this sexy Rudolf getup.
There’s a NSFW ladies version, but this sweater seems like it’s better suited for adventurous/hilarious dudes.
5. This cold shoulder grumpy cat sweater is something I’d consider wearing regularly.
Okay, minus the Santa hat. It’s kind of cute.
6. Paired up? How about this lovely couples’ sweater set…
Because everyone can relate to Rudolf now and then. Especially at Christmastime.
7. Or this not-so-subtle Frosty the Snowman tribute?
Props to this spirited couple for going all-in with their innuendo.
7. This mantle-place replica with stockings and fire get a standing ovation from me.
Not sure if this girl dressed up for an ugly sweater party, or had to stand in as a fireplace at Christmas.
