Can you Aussies remember the last time you wore a jumper on Christmas Day? Yeah, us either. We’re generally too busy melting somewhere, peeling the prawns while we wait for mum to sort out the ham, while the Northern Hemisphere sets up camp in the loungeroom, by the fire place in their fantastically ugly christmas sweaters.
Truth is, while Christmas down under sure has its perks, plenty of us feel a little left out and envious of those snowflake-encrusted knits that we would sweat profusely in, should we join in on the ugliness. But this festive season we can feel that little less excluded, thanks to the elves at Kozii who have invented a rashie version of the ugly Christmas sweater for us isolated folk.
Staying patriotic in red, blue and white, the swimwear label has taken a geographical spin on the classic look by stripping it clean of snowmen, snowflakes and all things chilly, and instead replacing it with trees and kangaroos, because Straya.
So with Christmas creepin’ up soon, it’s actually the perfect time for this nifty invention to start dominating the surf and sand. Plus, all profits go to Cancer Council Queensland, so it really is a great present for not only the receiver but also to all those affected by cancer. Snap it up for $69.95 a pop here.
