We all know it’s that time of year. The time where you can wear an ironic sweater and be seen as cool. I’ve even noticed it’s around this time when even the ugliest garments are in high demand. I’m talking about the Ugly Christmas Sweater.What I’ve noticed being a fashion student is that there are two types of people that primarily purchase Christmas sweaters – middle aged ladies who are most often teachers, church goers, or grandmothers, and college students who wear them to drunken house parties.The sad thing is, that my roommate and I went looking for these at discount retailer, Gabriel Brothers, only to find that they were sold out! For whatever the reason, you can search no longer. American Apparel has once again provided us with garments suitable for nearly any occasion- the Ugly Christmas Sweater. Each range from $35 to $38, which may appear pricy at first since it’s a piece that is worn primarily for novelty purposes, but hey, to each his own. I’d say if you can’t find one thrifitng, then check these out.
