An “Ugly Christmas sweater” is any Christmas themed sweater that could be considered in bad taste, tacky or overly festive.
The consensus is that the more details including reindeers, Santa clauses, presents, candy canes etc, the “uglier” the sweater.
Its hard to say who invented the first “ugly Christmas sweater” however like many wonderful things that encourage our designs at Offbeat Socks, we do know it was inspired by the 1980s.
As a clothing item, “ugly” sweaters were often featured on situation comedies in the 1980s.
They were mostly cardigans, buttoned down the front with the Christmas theme entering around the same time, with the first mass-produced Christmas garments being made under the name of "jingle bell sweaters" during the 1980s as well.
Its only because of ever changing fashion trends that sweaters once deemed acceptable are now considered “ugly”.
