This season's must have accessory for men would have to be a wrist watch. Whether it be a classic leather band with a small face or a large face with a trendy band, investing in a watch is something everyone should do for a quick wardrobe update. Another style that more men around the Las Cruces area seem to be accepting would be the peacoat. It’s the perfect jacket to wear over casual clothes or even a suit. This Fashionisto gives a great example of the casual peacoat look.

How to: Investing in a coat this holiday season is a must. Whether it be a trench, pea coat or military jacket, all these items are in high demand and look great dressed up or down. Be sure to check ASOS and Altamont for different takes on winter jackets. Don’t be afraid to try out a new shoe silhouette either. Boots are a must for winter. Be sure to wear them with earthy toned patterned socks to give the outfit a downtown earthy feel.
