What are the holidays without the classic, slightly silly sweaters? Actually, my teenage daughter specifically goes to thrift stores for “ugly” sweaters to complete her holiday look. The tackier the better! I wouldn’t go so far as to say ours are tacky, but putting a dog or even a cat in a sweater is sure to make a statement and the season toasty and bright!
