Ugly holiday sweaters have been around for decades, but the style has become especially trendy since the early 2000s. This year, however, Target is putting a new twist on the holiday tradition.

Available online and in stores, the retailer is selling a variety of knit dresses inspired by ugly holiday sweaters.

Each one is inspired by a different holiday classic, such as snowmen, elves, and candy canes.

Elf dressTargetThis style is called the Elf Dress with Tulle.

Depending on the size, each dress ranges in price from $US32.99 to $US39.99

Each dress is sold in at least six sizes, XS through XXL, and select styles are also sold in sizes 1X through 3X. Most of the dresses, however, are sized according to the brand’s Juniors range.

According to the Target website, “Juniors’ size 9/M is equivalent to Women’s size 6/S.” Because the dresses are made by different brands, however, the Juniors’ sizing may not fit the limited range of adult sizes they are said to equate to.

Gingerbread dressTargetEach dress features long sleeves, so they’re warm enough to wear in the winter.

Most of the dresses are inspired by Christmas

Of the 11 sweater dresses currently being sold on Target’s website, nine of them appear to be inspired by Christmas, such as a gingerbread dress, a Santa dress, and two different toy-solider inspired styles.
