If you hadn't noticed, ugly Christmas sweaters are the new black.

The itchy, lumpy, red and green monstrosities have somehow become the must-have fashion trend of the season (hooray, irony!), giving us all an excuse to wear comfy, unflattering outfits to our holiday parties. But leave it to Katy Perry to take the ugly Christmas sweater trend to the next level with... wait for it... an ugly Christmas sweater coat.

Perry was decked out for a performance of "A Christmas Story: The Musical," a Broadway show she attended with her boyfriend, John Mayer. Mayer was surprisingly buttoned-up in khaki pants (and a belt, too -- how unrocker of him) while Katy wore a long Dolce & Gabbana coat with a pixelated "Christmas sweater" print, paired with blue suede shoes.

Posing outside with the adorable "Christmas Story" cast, the pair actually looked like a wholesome sweater-loving, tree-decorating, all-American couple. Who saw that one coming?

Check out Katy's coat below. Are you a fan of the busy holiday print?
