No More Ugly Christmas Sweaters For You

This year we’ve put the Ugly Christmas Sweater on the naughty list — buttons, rhinestones, patchwork and bells need not apply. Instead, this Christmas we are in luck because chunky knits, fantastic prints and smart layering have never been more on-trend.

Dressed up or dressed down these holiday looks are fa-la-la-la-la-fabulous.

Old Navy, Novelty Xmas Sweater
Keep it casual with this great sweater from Old Navy. We love the deer, they give the outfit some holiday cheer without going totally Hickory Farms fromage. Pair it with your favourite worn-in jeans and boots. This look is very ‘I just got back from the forest to chop down a tree’ chic!

Holt Renfrew, Givenchy knit sweater
Nothing channels the holidays like a little argyle. This chunky knit from Givenchy is perfect for cozy nights by the fire. The two red stripes also give this sweater a modern edge.

Gap, Double Knit Striped Shawl Cardigan (on top)
Layer your sweaters! These striped sweaters from The Gap give a nod to the nautical trend and are perfect for the cozy-holiday look. This is the ideal getup for shopping outside or going for a stroll with friends.

Harry Rosen, Versace Collection, Diamond Jacquard Knit
Turquoise is a great colour for the holidays; such a change from the mundane red and green. This fabulous diamond jacquard v-neck sweater from Harry Rosen has just the right hint of pattern. A perfect layering piece or wear it all on its own.

Banana Republic, Charcoal Fairisle Shawl Sweater
The shawl neck is another big trend for men’s fashion and this one from Banana Republic is just right. The knit charcoal colour keeps it dressy, but still leaves enough room to let a collared shirt poke through — perfect for holiday dinner parties.

Open the Door to Polka Dots

Originally posted on 24 Hours Vancouver. 

The polka dot is back. No, we’re not going to look like we’re en route to a costume party dressed like a clown or the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. This time we’re seeing it in more subtle ways. And they’re popping up everywhere — socks, shirts, pants and sweaters.

The key to pulling off this season’s go-to print is scale. Try a miniature version with a mostly solid look if you’re ready to dabble or go over-scale to make a big statement. This week, we’re pointing out our favourite polka dots for the season.

1. This gorgeous Boss dress shirt is the perfect way to eliminate some of the plaid we’re seeing season after season. This winter, dress up your formal look by wearing this shirt and a suit or blazer. Or, dress it down with a simple jean jacket or layering piece like a chunky knit sweater.

2. Not ready to dive in headfirst with polka dots? Dip your toe into a great pair of socks. Jack and Jones is having a lot of fun with this trend and we guarantee that you’ll get a compliment when you cross your leg and the polka dots peek out.

3. Go bold or go home! We love this large print dot from Joe Fresh — perfect on a cardigan. You can wear it on its own or layer it to tone down the look.

4. We love pocket squares! A simple and chic way of adding in a bold colour or print to your look. It is subtle and understated.

5. Own the bold tie of the season and incorporate a little extra colour. We love the statement the red tie makes without being too over the top.

Colour Injection for the Closet

Originally posted in 24 Hours Vancouver

A short while back, we received an e-mail from a man who had recently shed a few pounds and was ready to treat himself to some new clothes. Like many men, he had never included a lot of colour into his wardrobe, but feels that now is the time.

So, how do men do this? It can be scary for males to buy colour for themselves and the big question is: how much is too much? No guy wants to feel like a clown or that they’re getting a lot of unwanted attention. For these men, we say keep it simple and take man-baby steps by introducing one bold colour in your outfit a day. By pairing a statement colour with neutrals you’ll make just the right statement.

1. Blue-soled shoes

Ladies have loved their Laboutin’s for years, now it’s time for the guys to give coloured soles a shot. These BOSS Grey Suede Wingtips with the blue sole are a really fun way to inject colour into your look.

2. A painless punch

Scarves are the easiest way to integrate colour into your look. Try this chunky yellow knit scarf from Jack and Jones over your coat or blazer for a bold and practical fall-winter look.

3. Bold britches

A red pant you say? We’re going to push you. We love vintage cords from J. Crew that come in several colours. These tell the world that you are not afraid of fashion. And wait until you see how many compliments you get.

4. Impress with less

Sometimes all you need is a great belt to add that finishing touch to your outfit. We love this orange stitch-striped webbing belt from the GAP, and you can’t beat the price.

5. The power of pink

Turn heads and make a statement with this fabulous pink wool blazer from Joe Fresh. We love the cropped look and feel that it’s a great one to dress up or down.
