Camo Puffer: Holiday Gifting Approved

Camo is back and it’s back in a big way. While a camo pant is always a trusty staple to have in your closet, it’s time to branch out and take the print further. I teamed up with G-Star to style some of my favorite pieces available at Bloomingdale’s for the Holidays (they have a super killer buy of G-Star right now), starring this crazy cool camo down jacket (did someone say PERFECT Christmas gift?!) When styling this bad boy, consider the camo print as a cool, dark, neutral. I paired back to this awesome stretch skinny jeans and embroidered sweatshirt (both from G-Star as well) to make the look cool and sporty, perfect for your Winter weekend warrior status. Happy gifting & styling 🙂

Holiday Style: How To Wear Jeans For Thanksgivin...

How To Wear Jeans For Festive Thanksgiving Dinner Style

Dinners and parties with family, friends, colleagues…the Holiday season invites are endless and throughout the next two months I’ll be bringing you guys great Holiday styling options for your packed Holiday schedules. With the Thanksgiving holiday ​right around the corner (this week, AH!) , it’s time to nail your turkey day while staying comfortable and stylish at the same time. I usually save great trousers and patterned pants for Christmas and New Years parties, opting for a killer pair of jeans for Thanksgiving.
They key to making jeans work for your Thanksgiving look is not only to dress them up, but to make sure you’ve got a little stretch in them for that post-turkey coma comfort. I’ve partnered with 7 For All Mankind to style these Luxe Sport Authentic slim jeans from Nordstrom for Thanksgiving dinner. Not only are they INSANELY comfortable but they look awesome paired back to a chunky turtleneck sweater and wool, plaid blazer. (love this wash for dressing up and for everyday) Pair them with a dark, dressy chelsea boot to add a bit more polish and toss on a herringbone scarf to add another element of texture to the look. (Style tip: I frayed the bottom of the jeans for everyday styling, and love the rugged element of the fray in contrast with the slick chelsea boot)

Fuzzy Fall Layers & Chelsea Boots

Sherpa Hoodies: Fall Off-Duty Favorite

Fall is all about great textures and awesome layering hacks. For as much as I love to layer, it’s nice to opt for one killer piece to keep warm while looking cool. This sherpa hoodie is perfect to throw over a t-shirt and pair to your favorite ripped jeans for a perfect weekend look. (style note, it’s a bit chunky so I wouldn’t wear under a slim jacket or else you may find yourself looking a bit ‘puffy’…stick to a great puffer when layering with outerwear) Stick to your favorite gum-sole chelsea boots and you instantly have a look thats approved for pumpkin-spice, whiskey infused anything.

A kick-ass suede bomber is one of those Fall pieces that you didn’t know you needed so badly. The bomber style is the must-have silhouette of the past few season, but often hard to wear when trying to pull off a more pulled together look…enter the suede bomber. Not only will this bad boy elevate a jeans and t-shirt look, but will take your Fall style to the next level when worn over a chic monochromatic navy on navy story. Pair with suede loafers and classic accessories for a timeless, old Hollywood vibe.

Puffer Vests: Keep It Simple & Stylish

Puffer Vests: The Key To Clean & Functional Layering

Layering for Fall doesn’t have to be overly complicated, enter the puffer vest. My rule for Fall layering is to keep things clean, simple & functional. With temperatures jumping all over the place lately, I always suggest to layer functionally, making it easy to shed a layer or two without sacrificing your Autumn look. I’ve partnered with Old Navy to show you guys how I’m styling some of their newest Fall pieces. Start off by opting for a classic crewneck sweatshirt and killer pair of olive jeans. Not only will these pieces stand on their own when un-layered but they serve as a perfect canvas to start adding pieces. Throw on a classic denim jacket for a look that’s perfectly rugged yet pulled together. To top it off, I’ve added this puffer vest (which happens to be the perfect shade of maroon) with a great slim fit which will keep you from looking like the Michelin man when layered.

Buffalo Check You Can Wear Right Now

Buffalo Check: The Heritage Pattern That Is A Must-Have

With morning and evening temperatures sitting pretty in the low 60’s lately, it’s time to start thinking about how to kick off a Fall look while being temperature friendly. This kick-ass buffalo plaid fleece jacket from TopMan is perfect for a brisk walk to and from work while the temps are still crisp. (Super easy and fluffy to throw in your bag and rock a monochromatic look for your lunch break when the temps are too hot). I have a feeling this piece is probably going to sell out quickly so grab it now and wear all the way through Winter with a rugged boot and beanie.

Leather Jackets: Splurge Vs. Steal

When Fall rolls around, I instantly start to pull out the leather (and faux leather) jackets in my closet. A proper fitting leather jacket will prove to be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe from these early Fall days, until the beginning of Spring. A great leather jacket used to a lot of saving or whipping out the credit card, but with the countless fast fashion brands stepping up the trend game, a killer leather jacket (not real leather obviously) can be yours for under $100. I’ve rounded up some of the best ones for under $100 (The one I am wearing above is this one from Forever21Men) as well as some splurge worthy jackets if you’re looking for real leather or to make an investment. The rest of this outfit is below, btw! x – Preston
