The holidays evoke feelings of joy, gratitude, and excitement. Ofcourse, no Christmas celebration would be complete without the addition of ugly Christmas sweaters. You know the ones I’m talking about; they feature plump, jolly Santas or reindeer with obnoxious red noses, three-dimensional and tacky add-ons, or maybe even all of the mentioned elements and more! Pop culture has adopted the ugly Christmas sweater as a badge of honor, making a competition for who can don the ugliest sweater. Previously, the ugly sweater gained fame as the hand-made gift no one asked for, usually from a relative. Here, I show you how you can swap the sweater for the cuter cousin of the ugly Christmas sweater: the Christmas Tee. It is party-approved, Anthropologie-esque, and it catches eyes for ALL the right reasons.

DIY Christmas Tee

Pair your creation with a sequin collared top layered underneath, a peplum pencil skirt, and fabulous wedges with gold as an accent! However, if you are a guy; disregard my styling advice heavily.
