Want to be the coolest guy in the room at your Christmas gathering? Yep, so do we. Here are five stylish items to add to your closet this Christmas that will keep you both warm and stylish, according to our globe-roving style editor Lance Avery Morgan.
OUTERWEAR TO REFLECT INNER HIPNESS
It’s not every Christmas we get to wear a turtleneck in Texas, so pair one with a sport coat or overcoat for a more polished vibe. You’ll look great when you arrive, and you can always take off a layer if it gets too warm inside and still look dapper. At Barney’s New York
COOL IN CASHMERE
This is a classic that every man should have in his winter wardrobe. If you are feeling in the spirit, you can even wear something that reflects the cold weather in your most stylish way. Brunello Cucinelli cashmere sweater, $995. At Neiman Marcus.
When the weather changes, so should your cologne. We recommend the new K by Dolce & Gabanna fragrance. It conjures both the Italian countryside and the Mediterranean midday sun with its vibrant crescendo of citruses, ignited by fiery aromatics and underpinned by sophisticated woods. You’ll be unforgettable wearing it. $80. At Nordstrom
JEANS THAT ROCK
Can you think of a better way to make sure you sample Christmas dinner without over-indulging and packing on extra pounds? We can’t either. Wearing something fitted like a classic blue jean that’s been sleekly updated will ensure a less less pounds you have to trim in the upcoming New Year. From $178. At 7 For All Mankind
UP TO YOUR NECK
Scarves are making a big fashion statement right now–and they’re not just for wearing on the street to ward off the chilly elements. If you’re one who overheats in a turtleneck, this is the perfect alternative to look warm and stylish as you celebrate holiday cheer.
GET A GRIP
A good pair of leather gloves is something that can last for years, especially in a warm-weather place like Texas where you don’t have to wear them daily…or even weekly. When you do, these are reversible in leather and quilted nylon. $68. At Polo Ralph Lauren.
LONG NIGHT, GREAT MORNING
