Ugly sweater parties aren’t just for Christmas anymore…
Whether you love them or loathe ‘em, ugly sweater parties are one of the kitschiest Christmas traditions. You know the drill. Find the most hideous-looking red and green, blinged out, holiday-themed sweater that looks like it belongs in the museum of ugly clothing and wear it with pride, all for the sake of being festive. In case you are one of those people who lives for ugly sweater parties, you will be happy to know that you don’t have to wait until the holiday season to put on your party pants. Hello, Halloween ugly sweaters, a new tradition mirroring ugly Christmas sweaters that is so about to happen.
Think about it. Instead of throwing a costume party and having to alienate all of your friends who hate dressing up, you can host an ugly sweater party instead. It’s perfect, right?
For the minimalist, here we have a black and white version with little skulls all over it.
This multi-colored number, featuring horror monsters, will probably increase your chances of winning the top honors at the bash. It’s creepy and even the color choices are totally hideous.
While a bunch of styles are available from a company called Fun Wear on Amazon for $39.99, there are brands offering similar styles ranging in price from around $20 to $45.
They also come in children’s sizes, larger sizes, smaller sizes — just about every size under the sun — so nobody has to miss out on the fun. The kids’ versions are just $15.99.
And don’t worry. All of the Halloween ugly sweaters are just as atrocious as the name implies. Even in black and white, like this witch themed version.
If you are into pumpkins, definitely opt for this one.
This Dracula-themed sweater is also pretty fierce.

Another brilliant idea for the ugly Halloween sweater? Parents, wear them in lieu of costumes. Sometimes it can be a total drag to get all dressed up for trick-or-treating and many of us just can’t be bothered doing it every single year. But then there is that nagging guilt, that we aren’t being spirited enough for our little ones, who pretty much worship everything about Halloween. This sweater is such a brilliant solution. For a one-time cost of $39.99 you don’t have to look like that lame and too-cool-for-school parent anymore. Every year simply drag your hideous sweater out of storage and pair it with some black pants, and voila! You will be Halloween ready.
In case you want to channel the Christmas spirit into Halloween even more, you should also think about investing in a Halloween tree. Because yes, they exist as well.
