Sweaters and Knitwear You Don’t Want To Wear, Photo Gallery

by The Smarter Wallet on December 24, 2008

Just for fun, here’s a look at some sweaters and knitwear you probably don’t want to wear. Knock yourself out with these colorful ensembles!

Bring out your favorite Christmas apparel! Do you favor the mint green top or the bright purple and yellow warm vest you got several years ago? Don’t be too embarrassed though, there are a lot of winter and holiday clothing out there that leaves much to be desired. But they’re fun, and for many of us, we got them for a song (or for free, maybe by playing White Elephant).

I see a lot of these clothes on the sales racks in my favorite bargain stores. Target, Marshall’s, Ross Dress for Less, T. J. Max still have a bunch of these out on sale periodically. If you’re lucky, you may avoid the ultra-generosity of your well-meaning loved ones who can’t resist sharing their best color schemes and taste in clothes with you! 🙂 For your own sake, pray that you get the bargain gift cards, the quality cookware or even the restaurant gift certificates instead. You don’t want to expand your Christmas wardrobe this way, do you?

All these gorgeous photos are from the CNN slideshow about unfortunate sweaters. I provide my own context below.

These outfits cannot be redeemed, not even if they’re worn by some pretties.

Fun Family Photo To Thrill Granny

Gramps and granny will love this.

I appreciate the holiday spirit, Christmas cheer and joyful mood these folks conjure just by showing up to a photo opp dressed like this. The world will always have room for a sense of humor and a tacky sweater. We all know how much we need a grin these days. Plus these days, many of us can no longer afford to be choosers. 😉
