As it’s Christmas Eve and Christmas Day tomorrow (for those who celebrate it) I wanted to do something festive for my weekend going out look. Friday and Saturday are going to be filled with a lot of family spent days, presents, food and of course festive games and traditions, so why not look stylish while entertaining the idea of Christmas?
For my base, I went with a trusty pair of Citizens of Humanity Rocket Jeans in Presidio as black always makes the perfect base for any look. Now for the festive and fun part, the Christmas sweater! I chose this one with a reindeer and a cute print on the front as I think it’s subtle enough to be fashionable and cool at the same time, not to mention it looks cosy! To tie in with the colours, I went with the classic Chloe Susanna boots in Beige as I think they are amazing and a New Look bobble hat in a similar colour for warmth.
Now to add a pop of colour, I went with the Michael Kors Jet Set Tote in Burgundy as it will hold all of your presents/items for the day and it plays nicely off the reindeer’s nose. I then finished it off with some Christmassy Ross Simons Snowflake earrings and some NARS Cherry Red lipstick. I adore this outfit myself and it’s definitely something that I would be wearing! It’s not been too cold here lately in the UK, which is extremely strange for December, so I think this outfit will be perfect for tomorrow or Saturday! What do you think of it? Happy holidays!
For this look I chose the FRAME L’Homme Slim-Fit in Custom Blue Ride from their men’s collection that I customized with some ankle zippers. The reason for the customizing was I thought the way the jeans would fall on the sneakers when partially unzipped added a new feel to the classic look.
As the jeans and moccasins by Vans have a youthful edge when paired together, I chose pieces that were timeless to pair with them. To start off, a classic white t shirt by ACNE as blue jeans and a white t shirt is never a wrong pairing. Then to keep the look of the season, I chose a coat from Sandro. It helps clean up the look and when paired with the Lock & Co hat adds a dapper feel to the overall look. Whether it be running to the stores for holiday shopping or a night out, this is a look that is casual yet smart.
For this month, I wanted to do looks for the men and I don’t style blue jeans much as very rarely I find a pair of blues that have the dreamy quality. However, the Nudie Tight Long John in Deep Abyss is just that as the first time I saw them my eyes widened. Everything from the perfect fit and tonal stitching to the fades and richness of the blue/black wash, they are all around one of the best blues that I have seen to date. See the looks that I came up with below.
I love monochromatic blue, almost more that than an all black look at times and I wanted to go for that with this look here. I also wanted to do something with a David Beckham vibe as he has always been one of my favorite people to see in double denim. I paired the jeans with a RRL denim shirt to layer over a James Perse t shirt because, I think, we don’t see two pieces of dark denim paired together often. I always find it to be very smart looking. Then to finish off the clean look, I chose one of my favorite boots from Loake 1880 and a hat by Brixton.
I always feel that a casual look is necessary and something with pieces that many guys probably already have in their closets. A look like this is classic and I am sure every guy is comfortable in when they wear it. I paired the jeans with a t shirt from Stussy and a Simon Miller flannel to layer over. To add some warmth to the look, I added a beanie by Beam Plus and of course a pair of the Vans Sk8-Hi sneakers to pull it all together.
This look here has a more street vibe. I chose to pair the jeans with the brown colorway of the YEEZY 950 boots because, I find, the brown to complement the blue in the jeans really well. I then chose a simple white t shirt by James Perse as the J. Crew sweater has a statement print. To finish it all off, I went for my favorite hat by Gents Co.
I love leather pants in the colder months, and they can be styled in so many different ways. For my weekend look, I wanted to style an outfit that is perfect for doing some holiday shopping or cozying up by the fire, and I thought these Rag & Bone washed leather pants fit the bill.
I paired them with a slouchy, oversize turtleneck sweater from Theory for a cozy look. For accessories, I chose these Madewell Oxfords for a masculine element. I then added this cross body Alexander Wang bag, perfect for keeping your hands free while shopping! Lastly, I wanted a touch of bling with this grey pearl cocktail ring from Prince Dimitri.
