2. Ugly holiday sweater dress

If your sweater is oversized, you can definitely get away with pairing it with only knee-high boots. This outfit idea pays homage to a trend that became popular among celebrities last December called “lampshading”.

Oversized sweaters are typically the last thing on your mind when you are looking to dress on the sultrier side, but as a personal favorite of the Kardashian sisters, this trend will never do you wrong.

The pairing incorporates one of this season’s biggest trends: knee-high boots, which will never fail to leave your legs looking long and lean.
