It’s never too early to start planning all of your holiday outfits.  I dont think there’s really any good excuse for guys to not look their best especially on Thanksgiving day. I’m sure there’s some of you out there that might help out with thanksgiving dinner or maybe even some who cook it all on your own (props if you do), but for the most part our job is just to dig in and eat! Below are some outfit ideas with pieces you probably already own.

If you’re a jeans and tee kinda guy like me then just add a knit sweater with some with some leather. You’ll look stylish without much effort.

Looking to change up your preppy style? Swap out your polo’s with a shawl collar knit cardigan and pair it with a plain white tee. It’s still preppy-ish but the white tee makes it a little more laid back.

If you’re a super trendy guy and want to tone it down for dinner with the in-laws, then keep it classic with a white button down and slim fit chinos and brown accessories.

Great Look For The Holidays: Ryan Gosling’s Look for Less!

Call me old fashioned but I still believe that during the holidays a man should be sharply dressed.  Doesn’t have to be anything too fussy or uncomfortable but definitely a step up from your everyday jeans and a pullover.  And if you’re like me, convincing the man in your life (or in my case men if you count my boys) it’s not an easy task.  They’re all about the comfort and don’t see anything wrong with walking around in their favorite jeans (or shorts) and tee.  I try my best to motivate them into something a little more stylish by simply dressing them myself.  Where do I get my motivation?  From my favorite celebs of course!  This outfit I used as inspiration is perfection and it doesn’t hurt that Ryan Gosling is wearing it.  It has all the right details like the dress shirt and slacks, but its kicked up a notch with fab shoes, matching belt and a sleek haircut.  SO easy to recreate and it’s not something that will leave your man wiggling in discomfort all day long.  Tip:  This is a simple outfit and the most important focus is on the  shirt.  So first shop his closet for  the other like the slacks that he might already have before you head out to buy – and always hit up your local stores like Target first.  They have a great selection of affordable accessories.
