It wouldn’t be the holidays without a novelty ugly Christmas sweater, but finding a festive jumper that’s actually stylish and worthy of your upcoming holiday gatherings can be a tall order. Somewhere, between all those garish tinsel and pom-pom adorned tops with god awful clashing patterns, there has to be a tasteful Christmas sweater design out there … right?  To save you the trouble of a frustrating and fruitless dig, we’ve gone ahead and done a deep dive for you, compiling a selection of 19 Christmas jumpers you’ll actually look forward to rocking this holiday season — we promise! 

What type of Christmas sweater should I wear?

If you’re staring into your closet ahead of your Christmas dinner party or white elephant gift exchange and drawing a total blank on the ensemble front, not to fret: We’ve got you covered! There are a few quick questions you can answer to help you determine what type of Christmas sweater is best for you. 

For starters, you’ll want to take into consideration if the event you’re off to is a dressy one. If so, you may be wise to consider a functional-yet-fashionable sweater dress ($126, Anthropologie) with a classy pair of heels or a sparkly pick, like this glitzy showstopper from Free People ($168, Nordstrom). 

If your shindig will be more low-key, however, you may be better suited to a comfy-yet-pretty chunky knit sweater (we like this evergreen top ($25) or a versatile shawl ($26.99, Amazon) that can be easily thrown over a cami or T-shirt. 

Follow the chart below to figure out which style best suits your needs.
