When I attended my first SantaCon in New York City, I had no idea what to wear. Sure, everyone dresses up for it, but what do people actually wear. Santa Costumes? Ugly Sweaters? Onesies? The answer....all three. Pictured below is what I wore my first year at SantaCon....and sometimes I still wear my ugly sweater because it's SO warm and in the right setting  (such as at the Union Square Christmas Market).

Santa Costume

If you want to go with the classic SantaCon look, dress up looking like Santa!



Santa Costume


Santa Wig & Beard



Women's Santa Suit Christmas Fancy

Ugly Sweaters

Ugly sweaters can be found at many retailers, at all difference price points. I recommend not spending more than $50 on a sweater. You don't want to get a sweater that has cheap material because it can cause you to feel itchy against your skin.


Here are some of my favorite ugly sweaters this season:


Blizzard Bay Men's Ugly Christmas Sweater with Llama


Pizza Ugly Sweater



Blizzard Bay Women's Ugly Christmas Sweater



Bah Hum Pug Sweater



Peanut Men's Holiday Sweater

Santa Tee's

Not ready to commit to a heavy costume? These tee's are perfect to get into the holiday spirit with little commitment!


Santa Elf Christmas Sweatshirt


Big Trex Ugly Sweater


The Tree Isn't the Only Thing Getting Lit Ugly T-Shirt


 Santa Butt Crack T-Shirt



This option I am expecting to be popular this year from how many different types of onesies are on the market compared to past years. Retailers have been getting VERY creative with onesies! My girl friends and I are planning on going with matching onesies this year to change it up (compared to last year)!


Candy Cane Onesie


Gingerbread Man Onesie


Santa Onesie


Elf Onesie


If you're wearing an ugly sweater, or not planning to wear the hood of your onesie, definitely buy some accessories! Best spots to go to Dollar Tree, Amazon or Michael's.




Happy Holidays, everyone!
