The first step to keeping warm is keeping dry. Peacoats are a fall/winter staple for good reason. Find a good one and you’ll be wearing it throughout all walks of life. Cheap ones will fall apart eventually — pointless for an item you can expect to wear for decades. Just make sure the fit is flattering.
Dressing like you know what you are doing and dressing effortlessly are not mutually exclusive. Being crisp, comfortable and casual are not synonymous with dressing like the world is your gym. And there is nothing wrong with caring about how you look. Men’s casual is easy, relaxed and incredibly simple to set up.
As we enter into the last month of the year, we’ve gotten that much closer to the greatly-anticipated four weeks of winter vacation that are soon to come. Of course, with the holiday season and time off come many holiday parties and nights out, which means dressing for the occasion. Whether it’s that massive meal with the family or late-night party, you want to be wearing the right outfit. Check out a few suggestions that might be able to help you and your soon-to-be-full calendar of events.
Thanksgiving is coming up and in terms of shopping, this means one very important day: Black Friday. Traditionally the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday is a time where everyone is out in droves hunting for the best deal. Some people, however, are better than dealing with this shopping madness than others. Infamous for creating long lines and all-night waits in front of stores, Black Friday can either be a great gift or a time to avoid.
I’ve been looking forward to the Amherst winter. Maybe it’s because I come from sunny Southern California, but I was eager to layer and accessorize with hats, scarves and gloves. The idea of actually being able to make long-term use of sweaters, wool coats, and boots had me patiently waiting in anticipation for the cold weather to kick in. I’m sure that the reality of New England’s icy winter will soon set in, but meanwhile, it’s time to pull out everything I was never able to use before.
With Halloween dressed up as Christmas this past weekend, it’s about time to start layering up in preparation for the freezing weather. One perfect way to do this is with scarves, which will not only provide you with warmth, but will also add a definite sense of style. There will be those days where it’ll be the same thick coat seemingly over and over again, but a dash of color or pattern in the form of a simple scarf will go a long way in switching things up.
Bored with your clothes?
It’s about that time of the year again when I open my closet, and I can’t find anything to wear. It’s not that my closet is actually bare, but nothing looks appealing anymore. I, of course, don’t have the money to simply throw out all of my clothes and buy new ones. So, what do I do? I could continue wearing my boring old clothes every day, or I could take matters into my own hands.
