There are certain things that only make sense during the holidays: Christmas music played ‘round the clock, egg nog, and ugly Christmas sweaters. That last item is my favorite of all the seasonal pleasures. But honestly, as someone who’s a fan of multi-use clothing—I have a scarf that can be fashioned into a halter top, a beach coverup, and a sundress—I find it difficult to invest in an item that can only be worn in one way during one time of year. Let’s be real, you probably can’t wear a tacky Christmas sweater to work, and you’re certainly not going to rock the same style to next year’s ugly sweater party, especially after winning first place for ugliest (you’re the one who wanted to make a statement in all that tinsel, remember?). Sure, you can always downgrade your prized sweater to the misfit ranks of your mismatched socks, hole-y t-shirts, and stained sweatpants, but that doesn’t really feel right either.
Good news. This year, I found a way to make the unsightly sweater custom more practical. I was diving deep into Black Friday deals on Amazon when I discovered a true Christmas miracle: ugly Christmas sweater workout leggings. A tad more functional, you can sport them to the gym, on a run, and to your bestie’s annual sweater soiree. Guaranteed yule be the talk of the party in this festive twist on the tacky sweater tradition.
Below, we’ve rounded up a dozen of our favorite ugly Christmas sweater leggings on Amazon, a new pair for all 12 days of Christmas.
