We don’t know when or why the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” phenomenon began, but we do know that it’s one of the best parts of the holiday season. The uglier, the woolier and more cheesy, the better — what a way to stay warm during our cold, Canadian winters.
While you can find some real gems at thrift stores and vintage shops, 2015 seems to be the year of immortalizing the most iconic pop culture moments on wool/polyester blends.
If you’re currently trying to hunt down that snazzy holiday look – or searching for the perfect gift for that special someone – ANDPOP and the interwebz have got you covered.
