What started out as an 'ironic' hipster fad has turned into an appealing hobby. The Ugly Christmas Sweater has no clear roots, but it is rumored to have started with:
1) The Cosby Show sweater (I don't agree with this theory - more likely guilty by association)
Whatever the original source is of this NEW 21st Century Holiday Tradition the Ugly Christmas Sweater is here to stay. Shoppers for Christmas Sweaters are appreciating the time, effort, and design skills that go into creating a piece of wearable art. It is just a matter of time before we see Project Runway rip off the Christmas Sweater trend with a challenge that will donate the proceeds to charity and have a full page photo shoot in Marie Clare Magazine.
