Attention Fashionistas! There’s no better accessory for this year’s holiday season than a dapper Fashionisto. Whether he’s a friend, brother or love interest, get your man to look the part when you head out together. This Fashionisto was on his way to class when I spotted him. Sporting slim cut trousers, a shawl collar cable knit sweater and classic brogues, he stood out from the sea of sweatshirts and baggy jeans that plagues Commonwealth Ave.
In good New England common sense, this Fashionisto piled on the layers. He opted for a gray overcoat that can be worn casually to class or out to a holiday party. The slim cut trousers add to this Fashionisto’s clean cut look. Opt for a pair of wool pants for that extra warmth, like these Ben Sherman Plectrum Wool Trousers.
Shawl collar cable knits are a must this season. Not only are they a great holiday present for Fashionistos, but Fashionistas can also adapt it to their wardrobe. For men, try this H&M Shawl-Collar Sweater. Ladies can try a more feminine version of this staple item like this Charter Club Long Sleeve Shawl-Collar Cable Knit Sweater.
The key to putting together a dapper ensemble is in the accessories. We all know that Fashionistas have countless options to choose from but so do the boys! Whether it’s a bright accent like argyle socks or a winter beanie, Fashionistos can accessorize as well. Zara has the men covered! Keep warm in a heavy scarf, like this Twist Knit Snood, or add some sartorial flair with this Velvet Bow Tie.
