The idea of the ugly sweater is not to take how one dresses too seriously. These days most ugly sweaters are novelty Christmas items but the ugly sweater first made its appearance in the 1980s. They were a bit oversized and featured very strong patterns for both men and women. Youtube nearly any 1980’s sitcom to get a glimpse of the ugly sweater. These days, as I said, the ugly sweater is mostly for Christmas and they are meant to be ugly and, at times, offensive.
