Holiday outfits from “Art of Manliess” blog

The more formal the occasion is, the more gender specific the clothing is. For example something really informal events call for a t shirt and jeans. Then as you go down the line to more formal events, the harder it is to look androgynous without looking out of place. When it gets super formal, I give up and get a dress that covers everything easily.

The art of manliness website is a place I go get some inspiration for the androgynous look. I look at that and some other men’s fashion posts in order to see how I can mix it up for my own taste and body type. I hope I’m giving them enough credit because this entire post is adding some commentary on their post. They created this great holiday outfit guide seen here.

Alright, so my edits:

Thanksgiving outfit: No changes you should know by now this is my favorite fall look.

Office holiday party outfit: While this look can work for a lot of people really well, it doesn’t work for me. Personally, the sportcoat over the sweater look is a little too masculine and bulky. That being said, wool pants and oxfords are a great holiday look. I would pair this bottom look with women’s pants and with a more feminine sweater.. like a Cambridge cable. Also, I will go ahead and say I really do not like the argyle style. I think it’s VERY overdone and is very 10 years ago… if not 20 years ago. I remember thinking I was cool wearing it in middle school.

Christmas party: I definitely agree with the whole look. I am not a tie wearer but this would be an occasion to wear a fun one. If it is more of an informal party I would also suggest wearing some sort of Christmas sweater. Not the ugly sweater top, really, but ….similar and hopefully cute. It’s the holiday season -get into the spirit by not wearing a plain v neck that you wear any other chilly night. To clarify… not this:

I do not own these photos I stole them from a google image search. I’ll post my own soon. Probably a whole sweater inspiration album -I love them so much.

Definitely love the Christmas day look. Every single last part of it. Wear the hat, wear the moccasins, definitely wear the sweater! Jeans are fine but if you are more casual joggers are good too.

Hope you like-y. Comment with your thoughts or message me with some similar looks on women I would love to see them. Also let me know if I’m doing this whole giving credit to the sources thing alright. Thanks!
