What to Wear

The holiday season is finally upon us and Fashionistas/os are spending time in their hometown with family and friends or on vacation celebrating this magical time of year. The holiday season brings cheer and events that give Fashionistas/os a reason to dress up at night.

Although we may have spent our first week home from finals on the couch watching endless hours on Netflix, the family dinners, gift exchanges and New Year’s Eve parties are right around the corner.

I found this Fashionisto in the holiday edition of GQ. Actually, I found him walking through town on a delightful winter day. His classic attire is an easy fix for all readers. The focal point of his outfit is a dark emerald tailored sport coat. Lined with a soft checkered pattern of navy blue and charcoal, this Fashionisto knows how to dress professionally and practically for a sophisticated night out. This coat can be tailored to your own personal style by choosing a black tuxedo jacket or an English wool sport coat. Any style you choose, a dressy sport coat is necessary for Fashionistos during the holidays. It can be dressed up for a formal evening, or in the case of this Fashionisto, dressed down with a pair of classy jeans and a fitted long sleeve T-shirt.

His casual HUGO by Hugo Boss tee is a dark charcoal gray and fits perfectly tucked in or out of his jean to incorporate a casual spin on his dressy outfit. Modeled together with a fitted pair of Citizens of Humanity dark jeans, he chose brown leather shoes to add a finishing touch to his polished look. His dark faced silver watch by MICHAEL Michael Kors is a classic piece that dresses up his timeless look.

Fashionistos aren’t forgotten during the holiday season and if you can look the part, then you’re definitely able to play the part. Impress your guests this holiday season and show up in something fabulous.

One Simple Change: Dress this look up for an interview or fancy date night with black pants and a paisley beige tie. Add a sophisticated leather briefcase and you’re sure to be taken seriously.
