No item is more of a Christmas party staple than the ugly Christmas sweater. While we've been wearing our trusty tacky knit for years, this holiday season, we're looking to spring for a more sophisticated look. Yes, looking trendy in a tacky Christmas sweater totally is possible! Don't believe us? These party-ready looks just might make you view the ugly Christmas sweater in a new light.

1. Lovely In Layers

The quickest way to upgrade a busy, printed knit? A crisp, white button down ($37, New Look) peeking out underneath. With such a loud print, keeping it simple throughout the rest of the outfit is the way to go - try a classic pair of gray or black jeans ($75, Topshop), and add a fashion girl touch with trendy lace-up flats ($45, Topshop). A starry bucket bag ($48, Nasty Gal) is unexpectedly festive in the most cool girl-esque way.

2. Sassy Suede Skirt

Wrap up the year than with one of the most on-trend pieces of 2015: The suede skirt ($40.60, Abercrombie & Fitch). In black, it makes for a cute, cozy combo with a red fairisle knit ($16, Boohoo). Keep the rest of your look casual with white sneakers ($60, Akira) and a fun pom beanie ($8.90, Forever 21). Is there anything more festive than a tinsel-hued, metallic clutch ($60, Nordstrom)? We think not.

3. Fuzzy Faux Fur

Make a colorful Christmas sweater ($27.92, Glamorous) more trendy than tacky by pairing it with two tried-and-true fashion crowd favorites: a shaggy faux fur vest ($52, Boohoo) and leather leggings ($35, Topshop). Pointed-toe ankle booties in a camel colored suede ($38, Old Navy) stand out against the rest of your black ensemble. Add some sophisticated sparkle with a glimmering ear cuff ($55, Shopbop).
