Maybe it happens the third time you book a Hummer limo for your birthday. Or when you're driving through for your fourth hit of Raising Cane's. Or the moment you panic when the DVR doesn't record The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Eventually it hits you: these things we like "ironically" are just things that we, you know, like.

It's something to keep in mind as we gear up for a sixth season of Ugly Christmas Sweater parties. Led by British retailers like Topshop, the not-so-ugly Christmas sweater is mounting a comeback, from subtle variations on traditional Fair Isle prints to graphic treatments. Go ahead and embrace the cheesiness for a look that's fiercely festive.
