Whoopi's Ugly Sweaters

Whoopi Goldberg has a line of Ugly Holiday Sweaters!

Whoopie Goldberg is many things but you probably didn’t expect her to be the designer of ugly holiday sweaters. She has always loved wearing ugly Christmas sweaters, it is a long-standing family tradition.   She loves the whimsy and fun, and has worn them for years. She refers to this collection as “Christmas sweaters with a twist.” She launched her Christmas sweater line last year at Lord & Taylor and Hudson’s Bay, a Canadian department store. This year she is exclusively online at Zappos. She designs the sweaters to reflect what she would like to see in a Christmas sweater. She has done one with a brown Santa, and she has done a Hanukkah sweater. She wants them to be appropriate for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Ramadan or any other holiday celebration. She designs the collection to represent all types of people and their winter holiday traditions. She loves the one with two Mrs. Santas kissing because it represents racial diversity and is LGBT-friendly. Zappos is carrying twelve Whoopi designed ugly Christmas sweaters. They are unisex and sizes range from Small to Extra Large, some sweaters come in 2XL. Prices range from $63.00 – $71.00. As Whoopi told WWD, “I have a lot of oddness in my brain, and so, this is the kind of stuff that I think about on a daily basis”.
