One of the best traditions of the holidays has finally arrived—ugly sweater season!

Ugly Sweaters, according to Time, first came to be around the 80s, but faded from popularity throughout the 90s. However, the trend began to pick up steam once more since 2001, with ugly sweater parties growing around that time. The trend has since continued throughout the years, and are especially popular during the holidays.

While themes behind the sweaters can vary, there’s never really any doubting just how “ugly” they can actually be. Thankfully, because the trend has become so popular, there’s not only a style for every partygoer, but there are also ones that perfect for every budget.


  • Forever 21:

Styles vary as do prices, but most options retail for $24.90-$29.90 each. Great options include the tinsel and ornament design that transforms you into an actual Christmas tree for $29.90, or a fun take on holiday wishes featuring a sheep and the saying “Fleece Navidad” for $24.90.

  • JCPenney:

If a value is what you’re after, then JCPenney is where you’ll find it. Sweaters which normally retail for $64 are on sale for 60 percent off--$24.99 total.

Endless options exist for men and women here for great prices, mostly around $30. Whether you like traditional ugly sweater themes like gingerbread men, reindeer and penguins, or ones themed after Star Wars and other characters, the store has you covered. For the kids, similar options are available for just $20.

Most of the options available online seem to be geared towards Juniors, but with several creative options all for $20.99 with a coupon, it’s easy to get some great sweaters for all the young women in the family.

Some options retail for a slightly higher price, but they are all perfect for anyone who likes to take their ugly sweater to the next level—and potentially make grandma a little uncomfortable in the process. While some designs are a higher price at $44.99, there are also several available for just $29.99.

The discount retailer may just be the place to go in order to get sweaters for the entire family. Whether you fancy ugly patterns or cute animals, there are options for all kinds of prices up to $40.00.

While some options are available for under $20, most designs are between $20-$40.00 and feature plenty of cute designs.
