Whoopi Releases ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ Line,Would U Pay THIS MUCH For It?
ILOSM fam’ if you’re in the market for some very fashionable clothes this Christmas season you should probably stop reading this article right now and keep on looking. But if you’re looking for some of the ugliest Christmas sweaters around, Whoopi Goldberg’s gotcha covered.
And although it’s a fact that Whoopi’s sweaters probably couldn’t get any uglier than they are now, don’t worry, referring to her sweaters as some of the ugliest fashion pieces on earth, is not an insult because that’s exactly what Whoopi’s intentions were when she created her 9 piece sweater collection, which will be sold exclusively at Lord & Taylor and Hudson’s Bay locations.
You see, the sweaters will bring both joy and laughter to everyone who lays their eyes on them, and since laughter and joy is where Whoopi’s comedic roots lie, it is the perfect fit for her. If you wanna rock one of these bad boys at your work Christmas party, for $139 each, you too, will bring joy to others.
Here’s what Whoopi told The New York Times about her ugly Christmas sweaters:
New York Times: Why ugly Christmas sweaters?
Whoopi: I’ve always liked them. They make me happy. I’ve worn them for many years. I thought about all the things I’d love to see on a sweater. Maybe a brown Santa. I have friends who are Jewish and Catholic and married to each other, so I had a big green tree, and I thought, “Well, what would you put on a big green tree if you’re a Jewish kid?” Well, you’d put little menorahs on, you’d put dreidels on. We have a “What makes the family?” sweater, which is this whole family and this one guy is green, but you realize he’s their brother. You never know what kind of family is going to come into your door.
Whoopi: You might start right after Thanksgiving, and wear them all the way through Hanukkah and New Year’s and then you’re done for another 12 months until it rolls around again. Anything before Thanksgiving is too early. I’m old school. I come from the protocol of, “O.K., here’s Halloween and then you have Thanksgiving.” No Christmas at Halloween.
NYT: What’s the best way to style a Christmas sweater?
Whoopi: Wear some black leggings and a crazy sweater. Men don’t wear leggings, so for them, jeans or something relatively simple, because it’s the sweater that you want people to see.
NYT: Who are your dream collaborators?
Whoopi: Anyone who wants to have some fun and do something different. I love watching Jeremy Scott because he collaborates with lots of different people. Rihanna is collaborating with this one and that one. When you’re looking at the kinds of things people are doing and what’s out there and who they’re reaching out to, I think to myself, “What would that look like if I were doing it?” We forget that people over 45 have money also, and they want to dress well. And you want to make it so they look cool in the stuff they’ve got on, as opposed to looking very odd in stuff that’s too young for them. Older folks are out there.
So ILOSM family, will you be droppin’ $139 on one of Whoopi’s ugly sweaters this season?
