Where to get your last-minute ugly holiday sweater

It's the most ugliest time of the year for sweaters. If you're like many of us, you've been invited to at least one "ugly holiday sweater" party and haven't yet purchased the required clothing. We scattered across several stores in Manhattan and found some unmistakably unattractive wooly wear still available on the rack.

This is the googly-eyed cat of your nightmares, which makes it perfect for an ugly Christmas sweater. Complete with stitched-on bells and random black snowflakes, you'll definitely pass muster with this acceptably awful item. (H&M; $24.99)

Pups and cats and sloths, oh my!

Ugly rating: 5/5
Even the cuteness of the animals -- not to mention the inclusion of a sloth -- couldn't save this disaster from rating a 5/5 on the ugly scale. Expect maybe one "awww," if you're lucky, and an onslaught of "ewww."  (Target; $19.99)

It's ugly, but not TOO ugly. This saucy Santa not only alerts fellow partygoers of your beverage of choice, it's also perfect for disguising red wine stains. Just blame it on Santa. (Target; $27.99)

Merry Kiss-mas

Admittedly, this is one of the least ugly "ugly sweaters" we came across. Just apologize to any revelers you come across for not dressing uglier, grab a drink and enjoy the party. (H&M; $24.99)

A black-and-gold palette makes this borderline appealing, as it goes great with black everything else. However, the reindeer's creepy smile and dead eyes secure this sweater's ranking as a healthy 3 on the ugly ugly scale. (H&M; $24.99)

Namasleigh

This is for a certain kind of New Yorker, you know who you are. You can't seem to get your friends on your level of zen, and you live for hot yoga. This sweater's not terribly ugly, but it's terribly obnoxious. (Target; $27.99)
