Here’s a few items I personally believe any guy would like as a gift for christmas this year. They’re all affordable and stylish and that goes a long way, especially when you’re on a budget. Style isn’t determined by how much you can spend. Even the little things or inexpensive brands can give you the feeling of confidence that higher-end brands would.
In my opinion you can wear white all year round if you want to. I don’t know where the rule came from , but sometimes you have to bend the rules a little bit. After one day of sunny weather I had to adjust back to the winter. I haven’t styled this blazer in a long time and I thought to myself I have enough new pieces to make it pop. During the process three colors came to mind when I was putting the outfit together, blue, green and gray. I wore the chambray shirt underneath the blazer to balance it out with the blue/green striped tie. Originally I was going to wear a pair of grey khakis and my white bucs , but I felt like the white khakis complimented the fit better especially paired with the gray desert boots. In all I felt like the colors I picked really went well with the blazer.

As much as I love winter and its ability to allow me to layer a lot (Layer Fanatic), I’m super excited about this coming spring season. In my opinion it brings the best out of people and their style. The brightness of the sun and the blossoming of flowers puts you in a feel good mood. I put this fit together anticipating and inspired by the approach of the spring season. Dockers is starting to sell its spring selection of colored pants, which is good not for just dockers, but any brand. I’ve learned that it is best to shop a season before because it is a lot cheaper to purchase. But, I instantly fell in love with the variety of colors they offer and the Azul Blue pair really caught my attention. To make a long story short, I wanted to bring some color to the cold winter. Don’t be afraid to add pops of color to your wardrobe.
Thrift Tip: Thrift stores are popular places to shop for bargains on secondhand items. Although sometimes confused with consignment shops, thrift stores sell items that have been donated, with the proceeds from sales usually benefiting charitable efforts.
Consignment stores sell second-hand goods for reduced prices. Typical items include clothing, jewelry, belts and shoes. Consignment stores pay the consignor (seller) a percentage of the sale proceeds and keep the balance. Payment to the consignor occurs only after the goods sell.
