Nothing says Ugly Sweater Party like a stitched-on snowman decal. Your best bet is to raid the local thrift store for this one—and keep the sizing generous, for maximum turkey consumption.

For a (slightly) less obnoxious look, opt for a print like plaid in a colour like blue. Great for Hanukkah or as a nod to the icy queen that is Halifax winter.

Keep it casually elegant with a plain, creme turtleneck—the perfect middle ground for an office party or Christmas dinner. You'll look cool and your neck will be SO WARM.
Sweet Pea Boutique 1542 Queen Street

Step up your holiday game with a sweater that doubles as a dress and will get you from point A to point B (family dinner to Christmadome) warmly. Sweater on fleek, and other atrocious word trends.

Sparkly beadwork is a double-edged sword. It says "I am sophisticated, but I am here to party." Strategically placed sequins can make or break a holiday sweater, so stick to a shoulder or sleeve embellishment. Anything in the shape of an animal or ornament and you risk being tossed back to the ugly category.
