As the holiday season ramps up into full swing so does the hype to seize every perfect photo opportunity with your whole family. Whether you are a first-time parent or you're a long-time veteran of the child-rearing scene, you can press pause on all of the holiday chaos by hopping on a decidedly festive fashion bandwagon. Years from now, you'll be looking at pictures and thanking your past self for dressing you and your child up in mommy and me ugly sweaters. Nothing says "making memories" like a couple of adorably tacky jumpers. The fact that you'll have a mini-me is truly a bonus.
If you aren't exactly familiar with the whole ugly sweater concept, it's really pretty self-explanatory. Though you may know some folks who unintentionally don some rather garish holiday apparel, this trend is all about choosing to wear the most outlandish festive sweaters. In fact, there are parties entirely centered on the gaudy fad. And, in most cases, there would even be contests for who was rocking the best (or worst?) ugly sweater. But who says having a flare for the ostentatious can't be a family affair? You may even be credited for starting the latest family tradition by wearing mommy and me ugly sweaters with your little one this year.
