MEN'S HOLIDAY STYLE GUIDE 2018
Pair a statement-making overcoat with each of these 3 looks.
For each, there’s an overcoat option to add a polished effect. “You can really work a great overcoat on top of everything from a cool graphic tee to a dressier turtleneck sweater,” says Nashville-based stylist Tiffany Gifford. “It just makes your outfit a little classy and takes the look to the next level.” Here’s what to wear this season, depending on the circumstances.
Balenciaga Oversized Printed Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt
A designer graphic t-shirt is a weekend wardrobe must-have for mixing with active bottoms like shorts and sweatpants. On its own, though, it’s too basic for a festive gathering. Try it layered under a polished coat and with chinos.
...& Neil Barrett Single Breasted Raw Cut Wool Travel Coat
This classic navy overcoat features a slim cut and warm wool fabric, making it ideal to wear over lighter layers.
Gucci Fair Isle Jacquard-Knit Wool Sweater
Fair Isle prints nod toward holiday cheer without forcing you to go the full-on ugly sweater route. Wear this one to a casual dinner or hometown reunion with a tailored pair of jeans (read: no rips or whiskers) to keep things elevated. Chunkier knit sweaters also have zero chance of wrinkling in your gym bag, which makes them a safe pick if you’re headed out straight from your workout.
...& AMI Double Breasted Coat
A camel overcoat adds a heritage vibe to any ensemble. For winter festivities, pair it with sweaters and crisp button downs. Come January, use the jacket to add a hit of old school sophistication to your go-to sweats.
Off-White Checked Cotton-Blend Shirt
The plaid shirt—a cold-weather essential—can feel a bit overdone, but this one looks modern because of its boxy construction and subtle printed logo.
...& Burberry Reversible Diamond Quilted and Cotton Car Coat
Quilted texturing and an army green hue lend fashion-forward updates to the typical overcoat silhouette. A perfect match for anything offbeat, try this piece with of-the-moment streetwear for events where trend-aware styles will go over well.
