Bring on the Holidays

The holiday season means spending time with family and creating lasting memories. It’s time to bundle up and enjoy all that this season brings us. There will be many days that are colder than cold and equally as many nights that are cozy, cuddly warm. This means that getting dressed during the winter is no easy feat when the goal is to stay warm and look cool. I found some great winter outfit inspiration that will take all of the guesswork out of what to wear.
Become a layering PRO this winter with the perfect sweaters that aren’t too bulky from LL Bean. This classic ivory pullover is perfect, layered under this hiking jacket that is slightly fitted and softly shapes the body. Add a pop of pattern with these fun mittens and you are set to take on all of your daily adventures in style.
Because whiskey can only keep a man so warm! Beat the cold with this classic, fisherman sweater. It’s the perfect blend of class and style and looks great paired with khakis or denim. Complement your casual, go-to-work look with a messenger bag. It’s how the modern man tops off this seasonal outfit.
A ski jacket is one thing, but what men really need is a good, run around, shovel the driveway, outdoor weekend winter jacket. This LL Bean, Sherpa-lined, waxed cotton jacket has a slim fit that still gives you enough room for a sweatshirt underneath. Its comfort fit and warm outer layer will give you everything you need to tackle this season’s festivities.
Bean boots and denim go together like peanut butter and jelly! These famous boots, also known as “duck” boots, are the quintessential winter must- have for your feet. If you don’t own yours yet, this just may be the time to buy; options are plentiful and they make great holiday gifts for the family. They look great with your sweaters and scarves and coats and caps and will get you through all types of winter weather.
