    WHEN DOES UGLY SWEATER SEASON CONCLUDE? The only correct answer is "when you say it does," because if you want to wear a jumper absolutely laden in jingle bells and lit-up bulbs in the heat of summertime, you really, really should. Still, even if you're a fan of Christmas in July, you can acknowledge that the height of Ugly-Sweaterdom typically happens around the holidays, when sweaters are required most days and being a bit outlandish, fashion-wise, is almost expected.

Sure, you may be wearing that sweater in July, but do rock that loud sweater at the Griffon ahead of Jan. 8.
