It's the most wonderful time of the year! It's the time where you feel love and kindness fill the air, and the holiday spirit comes alive. Spending the holiday season with your loved ones is the best part of it, other than giving gifts, and dressing up for the occassion. Styling for Christmas is one that the ladies have in the bag, but us guys really don't. So, today I'm helping you with holiday styling!
So you want to look good for those family holiday photos but not look corny, right? The key to holiday styling is simple. You use the holiday color scheme and incoporate it in your outfit, like I did here. Green, Red, White, and Camel tones are perfect for starting your festive wardrobe. As soon as I laid eyes on this reversible vest from J.Crew Factory I knew I had to grab it. The reason it's so good for this time of year is because black is a good color to add to tone down the more vibrant colors in your attire. The other perk of the vest is that it's able to be reversed onto the flannel-like side. Red plaid, gingham, or buffalo plaid is a good choice to add into your holiday looks because it gives a cozy and festive feel. Whether it's a layered sweater look, or a peacoat and scarf combo, add interesting color and pattern combinations to make you stand out.
Now, I was surfing through American Eagle Outfitter's website when I stumbled upon these skinny fit green chinos. The chino pant is an essential for every guy's wardrobe. The reason being is that this style of pant is versatile in style. Styling the pant with a tie and dress shirt works just as well as a crew neck tee and denim jacket. What's even better about this pair is that it's a olive green based color, which is almost a neutral feel for this look. It adds personality to the look, but doesn't throw to much attention also.
Socks! I don't know about you guys but socks for gifts can be a great thing for the big day, I chose these Kimchi Socks because of the color scheme works well with the vest. Fun socks can add a good vibe to your look without making you look like a goof ball, and Kimchi Socks has plenty of interesting patterned footwear, that each have meaning. With shoes for the season keep it neutral but do your thing! Solid colored canvas shoes, sneakers, or dress shoes like I'm sporting will all make a great look even better. I hope I helped you guys with this holiday guide. Until next time. -Denz
