If you think a coat is just a coat, think again – this infographic from Stand-Out.Net will help you to choose your coat according to the personality you wish to convey.
Are you cutting it a bit fine with your gift buying this Christmas because you still don’t know what to get the man/men in your life? DON’T PANIC! Breaking away slightly from purely just fashion, here are a few ideas that will make great presents no matter what your budget or what he might be into!
Over the last couple of years, Christmas jumpers have become a rather big deal. Here, we started noticing them in mid-October! They also seem to get more and more ‘novelty’ shall we say! What do you think, are they a good fun? Or serious crimes against fashion? We can’t quite decide.
If you are prepared to splash out on an item of clothing you most likely will only wear for a few days of the year, ASOS have a massive range of Christmas novelty jumpers ranging from elves, to snowmen, to reindeer to Christmas dinners and everything in-between.
Or are you too cool for Yule? If a big fluffy snowman or tinsel hanging off your top half isn’t your thing there are of course plenty of other jumpers out there to tickle your fancy. Cable and patterned knits have also come into their own over the past few years and they are slightly more versatile and wearable throughout the whole year!
Fairisle patterns are really popular at the moment. They subtly say winter and festivities without being too Christmassy plus they keep you nice and warm! This knit by Gant is easy on the eyes and bang on trend.
Or this Red Herring jumper from Debenhams
Whatever your preference there are plenty about at the moment. If you’re quick you might even be able to snap yourself up a Black Friday deal too!
It is fair to say that here in the UK, Winter has most definitely arrived! So for the coming frosty and icy mornings you’ll need suitable attire to keep you from turning icy yourself.
If you prefer the matching look, there are plenty of hat, scarf, and glove sets around to tempt your fancy. If you are looking for something pretty inoffensive that will work well with whatever outfit you choose to wear them with, go for something like these from Lyle and Scott.
High quality knits like these will keep your fingers from feeling the frost.
If actually you decide that you like having a warm neck but find traditional scarves have just too much material (we’re not sure if many people think this or not!) the neck warmer is becoming a more and more familiar site on men about the town. These can be really convenient as you just pop them and button them up and then don’t have to worry about them again. The one below is from my-wardrobe and will have you looking super sophisticated .
Gloves can sometimes be a pain, particularly when you want to send a text or skip a song on your phone maybe. This often means having to completely take off your glove, do what you want to do and then put it back on. Only to then get a reply to your message 10 seconds later and have to repeat the process. This is where fingerless gloves or flip mits come in very handy indeed. The pair below are from Burton and are festive and practical in equal measure.
For the novelty factor, because it is that time of year after all, so much festive fun can be had with a Christmas hat. We are personally recommending this elf hat, again from Burton. You’ll get some smiles with this, believe us!
