Tis the season to get ugly! Ugly Christmas sweaters, party wear, PJs, you name it. If you’re living in 2019, “ugly Christmas sweaters” has a different meaning to it, which means you pull out your “cutest”, ugliest festive wear and you flaunt it.
For many work parties, family gatherings, college shenanigans, holiday parties in general, Ugly Christmas sweaters are the go-to.
You can dress up or you can dress down, they are NO RULES when it comes to ugly Christmas attire.
DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater Ideas
Everyone does the Ugly Christmas theme differently and this post you’ll find a range of ugly that fits anyone’s needs. From ugly Christmas sweaters, dresses, Christmas costumes, college girl Christmas favorites, characters and DIY Christmas outfits, this article has it all! Some of these ideas work as an individual look, some are perfect for the whole friend group or a day at work.
I wanted to include an assortment of outfit ideas, funny, cute and clever, to have a little something-something for everyone. Yes the standard ugly Christmas sweater with a saying on it is great, but how about a holiday outfit dressed as a present or a mistletoe?
Not only is it fun to go searching or the perfect ugly sweater, but it’s also fun making one.
As long as you’re scrolling this post, you’ll see some genius ideas you wouldn’t have thought of before and could just win Christmas altogether!
Stockings that hang by the arm with care
This is the cutest idea I’ve seen yet for a Christmas sweater! Simply taking an original sweater and pinning stockings along your arm with a string of tinsel, and still feeling a little boujiee on the bottom half!
Festive Christma Dress
How about that work party where you probably have to be the one speaking or at least want to catch everyone’s attention somehow? Here’s the ultimate Christmas dress outfit. Find any simple dress and attach ornaments, tinsel, and bows, and I think you’ll be in season 😉
Here is one of your cutest go-to twin outfits. Go as gingerbread ladies with your bestie, it’s a comfortable and clever way to bring in the holidays!
It’s a snow-less Christmas if you aren’t there! This is one of the easiest, ugliest Christmas sweaters to make and you can count on being the only one to “sleigh” it.
Nothing says an ugly Christmas like a skirt covered in bows! If you’re really feeling the skirt idea you can even color coordinate your bows. How original, right?
Happy Holla Days
Can I get a holla at this sweater for a second? Bring your inner gangster to Christmas this year, maybe add a chain or beat with it too.
Reindeer who Work
Is this not the most perfect look for you and your coworkers? When you don’t have a life at Christmas because you’re looking too cute at work with the group. The holiday season is more bearable when you have a fun group theme, especially if there’s a lot of you!
Naughty and Nice?
This makes the top three of the best Christmas sweater I’ve ever seen. Who’s naughty, who’s nice, does it really get better than that?

There is no right way to do Christmas and there is no right way to wrap a present, so maybe just wrap yourself! With some tool, ribbon, and fabric, you can give the gift of YOU.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, a girl in tinsel is all I see. When dancing around the tree just isn’t enough, make your own! This is a Christmas winner for sure.
This ugly Christmas dress is so cheap to put together with inexpensive bulbs and garland. Just wear a bodysuit underneath.
Half of my Christmas and Christmas season I spend in my Victoria Secret snowflake onesie and my VS Santa hat so you could say PJ’S is another go-to. Whether it’s waking up Christmas morning or attending a PJ party, you need your Christmas PJ’S ready!
What everyone is really looking for around the holidays is that chance at mistletoe and what even better treat but to be it. Go as a candy cane but add some mistletoe, you’ll be everyone’s Christmas wish this year 😉
Grinch and Betty Lou
Every Christmas party needs their Grinch and Betty Lou. These two are killing and so can you!
Mixing in closet basics, thrift store finds, and fabric from your local craft store, you can put together a memorable homemade ugly Christmas sweater duo with a friend!
Santa’s favorite Ho! The classy ugly sweater idea that’s too good not to be at any Christmas party. I have a sweater “Santa’s Favorite” I’ve worn the last two years, might need to update that this year.
This one technically isn’t a DIY outfit, but sometimes just buying something clever to start and then adding cheap ugly Christmas sweater add-ons like string beads, long boots, Christmas bows, candy canes, etc are all that’s needed.
Calling all drink lovers, need a place to stash your fine wine? This could be the sweater for you! With that additional string of lights, you can’t deny this gal has the right idea.
