Just in case you have been living under a rock this entire time, there are two major trends right now- Star Wars and ugly Christmas sweater parties. While we can’t say exactly what it is about these two things that we find charming and immortal, they have more in common than meets the eye.
Star Wars, while it is a legendary story that has run for more than 30 years, is not the first movie series to come to mind when thinking about cinematography. Most fans actually complain that the movies are eye-sores, and that the producers skimped on quality during its long production. Even though no one is really satisfied with Star Wars, and fans have a love- hate relationship with it, it never dies or fades out of fashion.
Likewise, ugly Christmas sweaters might have been stylish, even beautiful a hundred years ago, or at the very least when we were children, but now they are just embarrassing. No one wants to be seen in an ugly Christmas sweater, and that’s what makes them popular!
Ugly Christmas sweater parties, as the name implies, celebrate these abominations which like Star Wars, are never forgotten and things we cling to for reasons we can’t explain. So this December, why not combine the two, and host a Star Wars themed ugly sweater party, or, if you’re invited to one, dress up and celebrate your favourite heroes from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
Best Star Wars Ugly Christmas Sweaters
With the sheer size of the Star Wars universe, it is no wonder that there a millions, maybe even billions of collectibles out there.

The sweater you choose will depend entirely on you and the look you’re going for, but with so many options out there, how does one even begin to choose? Fear not.

The following five sweaters are sure winners, but just be warned, die hard Star Wars fans might enjoy them so much, they won’t want to take them off!
I Find Your Lack of Cheer Disturbing
This men’s sweater is perfect for anyone who loves Star Wars, Christmas and cheesy renditions of famous movie lines.
With a 4.5/5 star review, the natural assumption is that this sweater is comfortable and an eye- turner. Then again, who can go wrong when they wear a sweater with Darth Vader’s face on it, demanding good holiday spirits? This sweater will cost you between $36 and $40.
Darth Vader and Friends
Sticking with Vader, for those who align with the dark side of the force (shame on you!) there is another sweater that will suit your villainous soul this Star Wars Christmas.
This Star Wars Men’s Holiday Sweater takes ugly to a whole new level, but still manages to come across as awesome. The classic pattern of alternating Vaders and Storm Troopers looks like an ordinary ugly sweater from afar, but the closer you get the cooler it seems. It will cost you $29.
R2-D2 Christmas Sweater
Maybe you are one of the good guys, and have no interest in advertising the dark side. Also, no Star Wars Christmas party would be complete without glimpsing R2-D2, the star of the show.
If either of those happens to be the case, this sweater will cost you $29 and will be a crowd-pleaser amongst Star Wars fans.
Let’s not forget about the Ladies. For $29 Ladies can also show off their dark side with this Bah! Humbug! Darth Vader sweater.
Like the previous sweater, this one has a classic feel to it, and won’t be out of place at a non- Star Wars ugly Sweater Party. In fact, this one can be worn all year round!
Boba It’s Cold Outside
On the other hand, this Boba It’s Cold Outside shirt is funny, adorable and actually cool. Best of all it will only cost you $21!
This is a great choice if you’re planning on entering the best dressed competition at your party, because who can resist the design or the pun!
Host a Party That’s Out of This World
Now that you have your sweater you are ready to the rock the party. If you are hosting your very own party, the great thing about Star Wars, as mentioned earlier, is that the Merchandise abounds. Pulling off a Star Wars ugly Christmas Sweater party might be the simplest thing in the world (or galaxy). It’s just a matter of knowing where to look. Merry Christmas and May the Force be with you!
