It may not be time to dig out the ugly Christmas sweaters just yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start having some fun with your wardrobe now that fall has unofficially arrived.
Whether you’re too busy to dress up for Halloween or love the holiday so much that you’re willing to dress like a pumpkin for the entire month of October, these ugly Halloween sweaters are the appropriate attire for you.
These designs allow skeletons and jack-o’-lanterns to stand in for Santa and Rudolph on delightfully obnoxious sweaters long before the countdown to Christmas. They’re hideous, spooky, fun and everything you love about ugly Christmas sweaters, but, you know, made for Halloween.
Some of the options are downright cute, as you can see from the brand’s Instagram:

It’s creepy, but it could come in handy, because there’s no denying that a Dracula sweater and some face paint could pass as a Halloween costume — just in case you find yourself in need of something to wear last-minute. This sweater retails for $39.99 on HalloweenCostumes.com.
The brand has options for men, women and kids available, so you can get the whole family in on the fun.
