Fashionable Husbands – What To Wear This Winter

Lately, I’ve spent more time keeping my family well dressed than I have myself! I guess that is just what happens when you’re pregnant… Yoga pants become the norm, anything but slippers hurt your feet and buying new shoes for your hubby is more fun than trying to cram your swollen feet into a pair of stilettos. Yup, that’s where I’m at.

WINTER BOOTS

I don’t know if it’s just me but I have a HARD time finding boots for my husband this season. You just can’t find them anywhere for under $200! What the heck? After a lot of searching, I found these Palladium Pampa Sport Boots from Bank Fashion for around $130.

Palladium Pampa Sport Boots feature a vintage style brown leather upper, khaki canvas trim pabelling, plus a padded cuff and lace and eyelet fastening system. These boots are complete with signature branding and a chunky textured outsole that will appeal to any man. My husband loves these because they are comfortable, easy to adjust and manly looking. A nice change from the ugly pair he got at Wal Mart 10 years ago….

COATS & JACKETS

Finding a coat that my husband wants to wear is almost as hard as getting a teenager to wear a coat… He wears a chunky knit sweater in the middle of January because he hasn’t found the “perfect” coat. Personally, I think this one would be awesome…

This Voi Jeans Alaska Parka is warm AND stylish! It features a black woven cotton exterior with detachable faux fur trim hood, large square stitch quilted exterior and padded design. This jacket has a button overlay to the zip closure, plus multiple pockets and branding to complete this stylish coat.

JEANS

My husband is pretty picky about his jeans too… (I taught him well?!) As far as fit, function and price go, he prefers Old Navy and Gap jeans.

What to Wear with Berets this Winter

We’re a big fan of berets this season, and it’s really easy to see why – they pair well with almost anything! Our favorite: the 100% Wool Unlined Parisian Beret from Dorfman Pacific’s DPA Authentic brand. Not only does this beret come in an astonishing 19 colors, but it’s chic and comfortable too. If you need a little help in the style department, though, here are our top picks for what to wear with berets.

Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans (or any type of lean-fitting denim, like cigarette pants) are the perfect pairing with a classy Parisian beret. Don your favorite pair of skinnies with a form-fitting t-shirt and ankle booties for a slightly rock-and-roll vibe.

Skirts

While the cold weather might deter you from wearing skirts, a knee-length version looks very chic with a beret. Wear a pair of opaque tights underneath to keep your legs warm, and calf length boots and a cardigan for an easy weekend ensemble.

Dresses

Channel the look of a Parisian native by wearing a form-flattering cap sleeve dress with your beret. You’re guaranteed to get compliments wherever you go – but don’t forget a pair of strappy heels! This outfit pairing works well for a cocktail party or a night out with the girls.

These are just a few of the ways you can wear your beret this winter. Do you have any style ideas to share? Don’t be afraid to sound off with your own pairings in the comment section.

The Bags You Need This Season

Winter’s icy fingers may have made their way into our wardrobes, turning pretty floral dresses into thick knitted jumpers and sexy strappy sandals into sturdy leather boots, but there’s one accessory we can use to fend off the season’s sobering influence: the mighty handbag! This autumn/winter, the must-haves come in all shapes and sizes, but all are set to bring some fun and colour back into our otherwise quite pasty lives.

Go vibrant

Transform any outfit with a burst of neon. The latest styles are radioactive yellow or citrus-zing lime, and the best size to go for is the micro shoulder bag with a long chain. Worn on a night out, your arm candy is sure to turn heads.

 

Get down to business

The briefcase is big news this season, as demonstrated by Ralph Lauren. But if that’s a bit too grown up and serious for you, cast your eye towards the latest satchel designs for a hint of corporate intelligence, perfectly blended with fun.

 

Your destiny awaits

 

Futuristic style is the way to go this season: let anything shiny, metallic and studded take you there! A clutch with a space-age twist like the purple envelope design by Henry Holland, which you can get your hands on by shopping the range of designer handbags from Debenhams, is perfect for this trend.

 

Go large – and then double it

Bigger certainly is better when it comes to your winter handbag, as demonstrated by top designers such as Chloé and Alexander Wang. Never again will you need to ask yourself “do I really need all this stuff?” A more relaxed approach to handbag contents, here you come!
