December fashion forecast for men: ‘Indigo,’ cashmere blends and more
By Brittany Anas
It’s the time of year to look your best, guys. So many cameras are flashing around the holidays it’s like you’ve got an entourage of paparazzi. (Aha, this is what David Beckham must feel like). You gotta’ look sharp for those holiday parties. And, of course, you’ll want to stay warm — without looking like a snowman in mismatched layers that you resurrected from the hall closet.
Here’s a few of winter’s greatest trends — all from Gap, where you’ll get bonus deals from ShopAtHome.com, like 4 percent Cash Back and free shipping on orders of $50 or more.
Cotton Cashmere: Luxe cashmere blended with a comfy cotton = A+ style without sacrificing comfort. Gap’s line of cashmere sweaters are blended with cotton — including cardigans, crewnecks, V-necks and button-up placket sweaters. But one unexpected style that caught our eye: The hooded sweater. It’s like the sophisticated, older brother of the hooded sweatshirt. Dress it up by pairing a flannel button-up underneath.
The shirt jacket: A warm coat that fits like a shirt and isn’t so puffy you feel like a marshmallow toddling about the roof trying to string Christmas lights? Bingo. The quilted shirt jacket comes in various colors — red, navy and deep mahogany. (Mahogany? Did we just channel our inner Anchorman?) You can also find it in a gray camo print. The runways predicted camouflage would be huge this year — and not just for hunters.
Indigo: A new twist on navy, indigo is soaking up the spotlight this winter. Stumped on what to wear? Try a monochromatic look — wearing varying shades of blues. Go ahead and throw in some different patterns like stripes and plaid. Pattern mixing works great as long as you’ve got a coherent color scheme and you let one of the prints dominate the outfit. Give the “it” color of the season a try with this shop-able outfit that includes a puffer vest, steele wash jeans, a plaid button up and a rugby striped scarf.
