Two Tone custom ugly sweaters are a great idea to inject something fun into your design. There are many varieties of two tone sweaters but the most popular ones are jumpers that are half one color and half another color or the sleeves are a different color.
When opting for a two tone sweater, either work with your brand colors or make one color white. White in two tone looks fantastic for custom ugly sweaters as if the bottom half of the sweater is white, it looks like snow! The really great thing about two tone is that they tend to stand out, they are a little different and the focus is on the design itself.
So you can see from the above penguin ugly christmas sweater that the hem remains blue. That ties in the entire sweater and makes it look whole but you can opt for complete two tone. That would mean the hem and half the sleeves are white which would look pretty cool too.
You'll see how Cadbury used two tone in the design. The white part was used as the snow and it broke up the appearance of the sweater. Another variation is to just have the purple only (so not two tone) and if doing that, the design itself should be bigger so it becomes the focus.
