I did a little research -and by research I mean asking my bf- on men’s fashion. Turns out even if they don’t give the utmost importance to their wardrobe all the time, doesn’t mean they don’t want to dress like it. Maybe they don’t have the impeccable style you do- no one can don stripes and polka dots like you after all, perhaps they just need some guidance. Well dear, girlfriend, sister, brother, mother or significant other, lets hook him up this year with not only some fab duds but the extreme confidence he’ll gain as one of the only men in his inner circle to master the art of layering.
First we start with a basic cotton thermal
- something in a neutral shade, perhaps olive or charcoal, if you live in a warmer climate a logo-less tee will also work. Then lets get fancy with something he definitely won’t buy for himself, but a gift he’d love to open- the sweater. But not just any sweater, dear dolls, something Karl Lagerfeld’s Parisian born godson would
actually be caught dead in- if KL actually had a Parisian born godson. Like a turtleneck
, a hooded button up pullover
or a classic crew-neck
- holla! Now I’m such a fan of obnoxiously loud prints, colors and cuts, but a man, well he’s a bit more practical and loves his comfort. But no one can deny the allure of the colored khaki. Yikes, did she just say colored khaki?!
Yes folks, with the right slim-ish cut, and in a muted shade like these berry trousers
, he’ll be begging to throw away those ratty jeans from the animal house days of yesteryear. Next up the topper- a tweed blazer
cut so sweet, you’ll wish it was made in your size.
Now let’s recap. We got the top portion covered, those exceptional pants, now lets accessorize! Don’t get it twisted- accessories aren’t just for the ladies, now I’m not talking about man purses, but something more practical- gloves, hats, scarves, even the laces on his broken in Italian leather boots can be styled just so. Now throw these all together and watch your man turn into a walking ad for Dolce & Gabbana. Do hop on over to www.AllergicToVanilla.com
