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.

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

How To Wear Cargo Pants Men

When deciding what to wear during the tricky in-between season time, my rule is to keep things classic. Rugged staples like denim work shirts and slim cargo pants are perfect for the end of Summer into the begining of Fall. The cargo (in old school olive) looks totally seasonable when paired back to a great pair of sandals and can carry you right into cooler weather with boots and a chunky sock. When looking for a denim shirt, you’ll want to make sure the authentic detailing is there. Pearl snap fronts, non-button collar, and stitching details are key when putting this look together.

The Camel Coat: Your Best Friend For Layering

A killer camel coat is one of the best pieces you can invest in during the Winter months. If you don’t have one in your closet already…shame on you (keep reading, I’ll hook you up in a few seconds). What I consider to be a closet staple, the trusty camel coat is not only extremely versatile, but chic enough to give any outfit an insta-worthy style upgrade. Thrown over a slim down puffer vest & plaid shirt, your camel coat will give your look an instant slim, GQ vibe while keeping out the chill (I’m trying to get you guys to move away from the bulky puffer jackets here if you can’t tell). This bad boy pictured above (purchased 2 years go) is an MAJOR sale right now at Club Monaco…under $300 and additional sale on top of that I believe.

Every Summer we hit the wall. The end of July wall. It’s hot. It’s humid. If we see one more palm tree / neon / surf print jogger short we’re going to snap. We want cooler temps and a wardrobe to go along with them. To keep our summer style as cool as we wish we were (temperature wise) we stick to easy wardrobe staples. Think light denim, classic plaids, breezy blazers and comfortable loafers. We say push the wacky florals and summer brights further and further into the closet and opt for classic colors and patterns to ease us right into August and September.

New York Fashion Week Mens (what we keep referring to as NYFW ) kicks off today and we couldn’t be one bit happier that the temps are peaking a bit just in time. We’re getting things started by keeping things classic and simple…broadcloth shirts, worn in denim, velvet slippers & vintage army jacket sound about right.

Chances are you already own a bomber jacket, and chances are you most likely do not own one crafted out of amazing tan suede (and found UNDER $200 buckaroos, yep). Well, we’re here to help. Preston recently took the must-have item of late fall (keeps the chill out while not looking too heavy) and styled it with layers of cream tees and long lined sweaters. Paired back to a fresh pair of 1970s Converse Chuck Taylors, this look is classic while giving you just enough Bieber/Kanye without looking like you’re on the hunt for a fake ID. (Speaking of 1970s…please pardon the porn-stashe…PK was clearly having a moment here)

If there is one piece you need to take your wardrobe staples into Winter, it is a sick camel top coat. We’re not talking about the boxy, shoulder-padded version your dad rocked when you were growing up. The new camel coat is slim, tapered, and will keep you pretty damn warm when worn over your favorite wool cable sweaters and paired back to a rigid jean.
