Ugly Sweaters

Anonymous asked: "I adore ugly sweaters.

"I’m talking clashing colours, obnoxious, the whole shebang. They work extremely well for my androgyny, and wow, big bonus here. They are hideous, though, seriously, wow. Do you know any ways to make them not so bad looking?"

Wear it like you mean it, and pair it with simple pieces for balance. Ugly sweaters are adorable. And pulling them off is precisely what makes them so awesome.
