From Tacky Tinsel to Ugly Sweaters, Kitsch is the New Cool

From Tacky Tinsel to Ugly Sweaters, Kitsch is the New Cool

The holidays are right around the corner, which means it’s ugly Christmas sweater weather.

Nobody’s quite sure where the connection between kitsch and Christmas began, but we can all agree it’s fun to forsake the rules of fashion for a while. Santa hats and head boppers? Must-haves. Tinsel? You betcha. Christmas parties are all about having fun with the people who matter most, so check out these style tips for tacky done right. 

Celebrate together

Spoiler alert: kids love it when the adults are down to get silly, too. Surprise the kids in your life with their own tacky Christmas sweaters. The photo ops are endless, and it might be a new winter wardrobe staple!

A Christmas tradition (for better or worse)

Would it really be Christmas without the annual influx of ugly sweaters? Whether you’re looking to keep it tacky-but-classy for a regular December day at the office, or totally impress everyone with an on-trend holiday llama sweater, we’ve got you covered. 

Go big with accessories

Is your office holding an ugly sweater competition? We know you want to look cute in your holiday wear, but that’s not going to win you any sweater-shaped awards. Adding extra Christmas accessories can move your outfit from trendy to award-winningly tacky, so grab a Santa hat or a Christmas bow headband.

It takes two

Coupling up is an easy way to double your tacky points. If you stick to a theme and color scheme, you’ll impress all your friends with your wonderful-terrible taste. Bonus: you'll also ensure you won’t be the only one at the party who went all-out with their outfit.

Tinsel is perfectly over the top

There’s something so Christmassy about tinsel. It’s nostalgic, shiny, and epitomizes tacky Christmas. If it was good enough for your childhood Christmas tree, think of the fun it can bring to your totally *extra* holiday outfit.
