Unless you’re living in florida like us then you’re probably bundled up and dealing with the harsh winter cold. While a stylish coat is a stylish must have this year they do tend to get a little dormant when you have to wear them every single day. That’s when simple accessories can come in and spruce up those cold dreary days. Men don’t exactly have a enormous selection and ways of accessorizing like women do but we most certainly can add a few items here and there to makes things pop or in some cases simply embellish in a simple understated way. Below are some of our favorite accessories and some solid street style inspiration.

Men’s Stylish Holiday Attire

Filed under Boys on the Side

Whether it’s an office party, family gathering or friends getting together to celebrate the holiday’s, this is the best season for a man to dress festive, look stylish and have fun!  Unfortunately, I’ve lost count of the times I catch a guy tugging at the uncomfortable clothes their wives or girlfriends have picked out for them. There’s no need for that! With the right pieces, a guy can easily throw together a comfy and stylish outfit together in no time.

The key is to stay within your normal day to day style but amp it up a bit. To dress up your favorite pair of jeans or slacks, try throwing on a blazer (particularly a cordoroy or tweed one) with a simple white tee. For an effortless look, try a fitted cardigan ala David Beckham (like this one from Lyle & Scott). For a more pulled together vibe use a pullover with a button down.  I personally love to layer because it’s so much more personal and eclectic.

Lyle and Scott Cardigan | Pretty Green Button Down | Tartan Wool Scarf | Hugo Boss Jeans | Jink Brogues Shoes

Blazer  | T Shirt | Pretty Green Chinos | Suede Desert Boots | Watch | Lyle and Scott Gingham Socks

Add your touch to outfits with a favorite scarf, a trendy tie or vest…the options are limitless and as the evening goes on you can always pull off the sweater or tie. Whatever items you choose to make up your outfit I suggest you check out Northern Threads and if I were to recommend some brands in particular I would go for Pretty Green by Liam Gallagher (one of my faves by far), you’ll find simple tees, scarves, jackets and just about anything else you’ll need to get you prepared for a gathering. There’s no excuses, with so much fine clothing to choose from you should really be partying in a stylish outfit at this festive time, don’t be lazy with you’re dressing!  Click here to browse their huge stylish range of both premium and casual labels.

The Most Expensive Celebrity Cars in the World

September 26, 2011 by  
Filed under Celebrity Side Dish

Celebrities have it all from spectacular homes, to luxury yachts and magnificent cars. They certainly know how to flash the cash and are often snapped looking wonderfully fly.

Check out some of the most expensive celebrity cars in the world and decide which one you would buy if you were raking in the big bucks (try not to get depressed).

 

1. Ferrari 430

Reality TV car Kim Kardashian is the proud owner of a Ferrari 430, a spectacular machine worth $186,925 – slightly more than your average Ford Fiesta. Sexy, vivacious and apparently loaded, this lady looks even more glamorous then usual driving around in this dashing model.

2. Bugatti Veyron

The second fastest car in the world, the Bugatti Veyron can reach a speed of up to 257 mph and costs a whopping $1,700,000. Boasting sporty looks and a powerful engine, the Bugatti caught the attention of celebrities such as Simon Cowell and is one of the hottest runners on the market.

3. Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport

It was reported by The Sun, that singing sensation Beyoncé bought her rap mogul husband this sensational car to celebrate him turning 41. Powered by a 16.4 litre engine that produces 1,000 horsepower this exquisite motor is priced at a cool $2 million and is a toy for the rich and famous.

4. Bentley GT Continental

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton bought this classic motor with a twist as a Christmas present to herself in 2008. Inspired by Barbie, the reality TV star ordered the car to come in a baby pink colour and asked for the dashboard to be encrusted with diamonds. A wonderful idea, or a fantastic way to ruin a historic design? Your choice.

5. Maybach

P.Diddy’s son must think he is the coolest Dad in the world right? Well wouldn’t you if your dear pop bought you a car worth $360,000 for your sweet sixteen and even wrapped it up in a red bow as a gift? The best part of it all is that P.Diddy also hired a driver to ferry his son around NYC as little Dids did not even have his own driving license – how very sweet.

6. Custom Rolls-Royce Phantome Drophe

David Beckham has always been the King of cool and his custom Rolls-Royce Phantome Drophe completes the image perfectly. The football legend can regularly be seen cruising the street of Beverley Hills with his growing brood and he certainly looks the part sat in his luxury convertible worth $407, 000. With a colour-matched exterior trim, 24″ wheels and his number 23 embroidered into the seats this is a really swanky ride.

7. Tesla Roadster

Most people are more environmentally conscious these days and Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am is certainly leading the way towards a green future. The owner of a $100K all-electric Tesla Roadster which runs off of lithium-ion battery power and releases no emissions, Will.i.am seems to have gone green and is setting a good example.

8. Rolls Royce Phantom

A collector of classic motors cars, this entrepreneur owns a great array of vehicles and reportedly put the Rolls Royce which appeared on The Apprentice up for sale on Autotrader for $179,000. He kept the fantastic AMS 1 number plate and placed it on his new Rolls Royce Phantom. Genius.

9. Ferrari Enzo

Oscar award-winning actor Nicolas Cage was the proud owner of the breathtaking Ferrari Enzo worth a staggering $670,000. Powered by a F140 aluminum V12 engine and with the ability to reach 217, this car is utterly sensational but the star was forced to sell up to solve some financial difficulties.

10. Porsche 959

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld owns an impressive collection of Porsche vehicles and reportedly owns the most expensive –  the Porsche 959 coming in at $700,000. Incredibly swanky, this car is a dream to look at, however, the star can not actually drive it as it doesn’t pass US emissions tests. Fail.

So there you have it, ten of the most expensive celebrity cars in the word – you won’t look at your banger in the same way again huh? Or maybe you will, as these must cost a fortune to run.

Gotta love David Beckham’s casual look :  laid back, clean cut and best of all affordable and easy to emulate.  Not really into the whole sweater tied around the waist look.  It certainly doesn’t look bad on him, but if it’s not your style you can always just simply wear it (if the weather calls for it of course).  Get Beckham’s look for less!

Soccer superstar David Beckham looking casually dapper in a corduroy blazer, crew neck sweater and slightly baggy jeans.  I’m not sure what’s tied around his waist (is it a cardigan or did he just return from karate class?) but it takes away from his overall look  (the outfit of course!). Get David’s look!
