Let's get one thing straight: nobody actually wants to look ugly at the ugly-Christmas-sweater party. The goal is to look festive and appropriately attired without trying too hard — and while still looking cute enough to mix and a-mingle during "Jingle Bell Rock." That's a tall order, but it's nothing one of these sweaters can't help you accomplish. From the bold sparkle on one very cool Topshop pullover to some serious Christmas cheer on a sweet reindeer-faced knit, we've found perfect sweaters just in time to ring in the holidays. Of course, you could always rent your ugly topper — but we think you'll want to wear the ones below again and again.
