Cold winters make you want to get cosy. They make you want to snuggle up in a big oversized sweater and read your book by the fire. And what better time to do that then over Christmas break, when you're surrounded by your family, and you have the luxury of a few long days out of the office with nothing to worry about. Here are 5 fashion accouterments all men should have on handy this Christmas season.
1. The Christmas sweater
You know the one I mean. It's deep red, or forest green with white reindeer lined up at the bottom. They sound cheesy, in fact most of our childhood was probably spent avoiding them, but somehow they have come back in trend and are the perfect item for the season. Moreover your grandmother will be delighted to see you wearing her gift!
2. The snood
For those of you who don't know what a snood is, it's an unattached hood that can go with every jacket, or even jumper. They are totally cute and very a la mode. Often lined with fur, your head, and thereby body, are sure to stay nice and warm, this cold holiday season.
3. The sorrel boots
I don't care what anyone says, if you live in a country that requires down coats, hats, and gloves, then you live in a country that requires rubber soled, fur-lined boots. These are not childish. I assure you no one at the office is going to ask you if you're going sledding after work. They are cool, but more then being cool, they are warm and practical.
4. The leather gloves
Every man should own a pair of leather driving gloves. In addition to keeping your hands warm, they are stylish and sensible. They are best paired with a pea coat or leather jacket. Those men who prefer ski jackets should probably go for a nice woolly pair of gloves.
5. The glittery jewels
It's not only women who want diamonds and bling for Christmas; men love their shiny accessories too. If you noticed that one of the men in your life is running low on cufflink options or is in need of a new watch, then go out and get one for him. It's a great, thoughtful gift, and something that he can keep forever. There you have it boys, 5 things to leave out on your dresser this holiday season. And anything you're running low on can be added to your Christmas wish list! Happy holidays.
