Have you been invited to a Tacky Sweater Party over the holidays this year? Wondering what to wear? We asked our friends at Value Village if they had any great ideas of how to style a tacky sweater to beat all tacky sweaters. Here’s what they shared with us:
With thrifted items from Value Village, you can find a true vintage gem or opt to transform a simple sweater by DIY-ing something that’s one-of-a-kind rather than spending a chunk of change on a holiday sweater that can look manufactured and unimaginative. Here are some ideas for DIY-ing a unique but oh-so-very-tacky sweater—easily.
Short on time? Take any sweater and attach holiday bows and ribbon all over the place—front, back, arms, neckline.
Get two sweaters in the same colour and affix a felt cut out of a reindeer head and front legs to one sweater and the back half to the other sweater. Be sure and stand close for optimal effect!
Why not cut up your sweater into a holiday vest! Or wear an oversized one and make it a sweater dress. Add some tinsel and ornaments and make a Tacky Sweater fashion statement.
Decorate your sweater the way you would a Christmas tree—with lights, tinsel, ornaments, candy canes. You can even glue felt cut outs of wrapped presents on your pants or skirt for the complete look!
Safety pin holiday cards all over your sweater and be a walking well-wisher.
Fasten jingle bells on the cuffs and neckline of your sweater. Great for dancing!
