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.

I’m loving the fact that this year it’s been really easy to transition shoes through the year making it easier to justify the amount of shoes I buy! Booties that you wore with your sweaters are being paired with shorts and the classic oxford is proving to have just as much staying power. They’re being seen on celebrities like Taylor Swift, Ashlee Simpson with everything from skirts, dresses, shorts or rolled up jeans. I love the masculine touch it can give any outfit without looking rugged or breaking the femininity of an outfit – in fact it gives it a preppy feel. Yeswalker has the perfect pair of oxfords and they’re BOGO (buy get one) so you can get yourself two pairs and break them in for the fall because they will definitely be around!
