The holidays yield an onslaught of oddball traditions – egg nog, SantaCon, mistletoe, debt-inducing gift giving, awkward family photos, incessant Christmas music and not to mention the mythological belief that an overweight, nocturnal old man who spies on children will break into your house on Christmas Eve bearing presents. Of course, none of these rituals have been parodied more than the festive clothing we opt to wear at holiday-themed celebrations, otherwise known as Christmas sweaters.

Marked by loud graphics, vivid color patterns and frumpy silhouettes, Christmas sweaters have gone from dreaded knitwear gifted by your grandmother to ironic sartorial statements celebrated for their unabashed gaudiness. But as each year passes, Christmas sweaters get increasingly more fashionable, with everyone from rappers to streetwear brands to luxury designers churning out iterations of the jazzy jumper.

Whether you’re looking to shock your conservative relatives or impress them with your chic fashion sense, our latest editorial spotlights six of this season’s best Christmas sweaters to help you get through the holidays in style.
