Handsome Holiday Outfit for Guys

No raiding Cousin Eddie's closet necessary

A festive outfit for your family dinner doesn’t require raiding Cousin Eddie’s closet or buying a yearly “this is my holiday sweater” sweater (not that we’re knocking stylish annual knitwear purchases, though). 

Instead, opt for a simple look that’s serving up enough layers to hide your second, third, or fifth helping of holiday ham, while still looking stylish enough to steal the spotlight in your family photos.

Earlier this week, we saw Chance the Rapper’s fair isle sweater styled five ways in unexpected yet accessible looks. And it turns out the Style Girlfriend team can’t get enough of this seasonal staple. Start with a subtly festive base layer like this neutral fair isle sweater, then layer in cozy and colorful additions with a patterned shirt and colorful accessories.

Festive family time with this holiday outfit for guys:

Coat: Fidelity, $409 | Sweater: Gant, $175 | ShirtBilly Reid, $195

Jeans: Rag & Bone, $210 Scarf: Margo Petitti, $148 | Boots: Kenton, $228

Socks: Stance, $22 | Beanie: Inis Meáin, $110 Belt: Frye, $148

Watch: Komono, $136 | Cologne: The Motley, $105 Grooming kit: Ursa Major, $46 

Wear it well:

  • Lean on re-wearable pieces. Instead of one-time-a-year outfits, go for basics that looks festive when paired together but regular ol’ stylish when apart.
  • If yuletide carols have you singing somewhere a little less frigid, keep your holiday look cozy by opting for fabrics like flannel and light layers like shackets.
  • Unsure how to match your holiday colors together? Get the lowdown on evergreen, red, bright blue, and gold.
