Tacky Christmas sweaters: So heinously ugly they’re cute

For the past few years, the tacky Christmas sweaters trend has become popular spoof on Christmas spirit.

No longer is the tacky Christmas sweater the ugly gift your grandmother buys you every year; it has become a way to show your personality.

Many holiday parties revolve around the new trend as a fun way to hang out with friends without having to dress up; just pick a crazy-looking Christmas sweater.

“Last year I went to a Christmas party, and the theme was tacky Christmas sweaters. Some of the people there went all out,” said Cassie Armenta, 21, child development major.

How do you know if your sweater is tacky enough, and where can you buy a tacky Christmas sweater?

Don’t worry, it’s easy. There’s no need to go spend lots of cash on a nice sweater just to ruin it.You can go to a thrift store and find something unique, and then have fun with it.

Add anything and everything Christmas related to your tacky sweater. You can add ornaments, candy canes, lights, glitter, bows, or even pin your Santa hat on. It’s a tacky sweater trend, so go with the flow.

“I love this whole tacky sweater trend, even though it’s supposed to be ‘tacky’, I still add in some cuteness,” SophiaGonzalez, 19, Art major.

The trend has become so popular, many well-known stores are now selling these sweaters. They may not compare to the masterpiece you are capable of making, but for some the “cute tacky sweater” has more appeal.

Either way, the tacky sweater trend is here to stay.
