Grandparents and hipsters get all the best prints. Think about it – if certain patterns feel nostalgic to us, only grandparents and hipsters get to wear them. Ugly Sweater Parties have served not only as a popular topic for Facebook photo albums, but also as incubators for the famous ironic apparel trends from our generation’s Special Snowflake hipsters.
I say it’s time for a pattern free-for-all. I want Nordic-inspired grandpa sweaters without caring whether or not it’s ironic. I want it because my parents rocked them in the 80s and it’s a positive memory! Besides, while the patterns may look the same, there are tons of updated shapes and cuts.
