Our friends at Shirt Kong have added a new ugly holiday sweater design to their already fantastic line of screen-printed apparel. We teamed up with Shirt Kong to bring you three unique ways to style your ugly Christmas sweater.


Cut. It. Out.
Trying to add a little personal style to your sweater? Before donning everyone’s favorite holiday trend, alter the collar for a trendy, off-the-shoulder look. Safety pin the front of the crew neck collar to the back of the crew neck collar. While keeping it in line with the back, make a half-inch cut away from the seam. Continue cutting until the whole collar can be removed from the sweater. No need to hem, the frayed look is an added bonus. 


Layer It On Thick
Give your look dimension. Buy a size down (Shirt Kong’s Christmas sweaters are unisex) so that you can wear the sweater snug to your body. Pair with a long colored tank top and t-shirt, with the shirts peeking out at the collar and at the bottom hem. We love the look with a pair of shape-enhancing leggings.


That’s A Wrap
Ditch the wrapping paper and consult Shirt Kong’s DIY wrapping tutorial using t-shirts and sweaters in place of paper—perfect for procrastinators everywhere. It’s a perfect way to bundle gifts and takes about 30 seconds. Lay your holiday sweater face down and place your present directly in the center. Fold the bottom of the shirt over the present so only the top of the gift is showing. Next, fold the top half of the shirt down over the gift. Cross the sleeves, wrap them around the gift and double knot them in a bow. For a more festive look, attach holiday pins or charms. See the video tutorial here.
