Gift Guide Ideas: Footwear!

 
The holidays are right around the corner and no matter how you choose to celebrate, chances are you’ll be giving out your fair share of gifts. Of course, with less than two weeks to the big day you probably should have already done your shopping but just in case you didn’t, I’ve got you covered. The following is a guide of the best footwear you can get for your friends and family.

Timberland Classic 8″ Boot  

If you got down with Drake’s “Hotline Bling” this holiday season and were one of the hundreds of millions of people who watched the music video, you might have noticed that Champagne Papi’s shoe game. He was rocking the throwback Timberland boot that dominated hip-hop in the late ’90s and early ’00s. The Tims are great because a fresh pair looks awesome and if you keep them nice and clean, they’ll look good for years. If they should get a little busted, though, they just become a really durable pair of work boots. Tims are perfect for both guys and girls and even dad would be hard-pressed to complain about finding a pair of these bad boys under the tree.

Low-Top Sneakers  

And it’s not just boots that are the big thing for the season. Plenty of stylish folks live in warmer climates where it’s not always practical to go rolling around in a huge pair of boots. The simple and classic low-top sneaker is a low-maintenance and good-looking way to rock some style with your kicks while staying comfortable. There are so many great options that you can roll with. There’s the longtime favorite Air Force 1 low-top (or “low-force” as they’re commonly called) or you can pull some inspiration from this list of fashionable footwear that includes big-name designers like Givenchy and Philippe Model. Depending on the person you’re shopping for, you could consider getting a couple pairs, one light and one dark, so they can easily be matched to his or her wardrobe.

Bean Boots  

They never really went out of style, but this year the classic L.L. Bean boot is back in a big way. The Bean Boot (or duck boot as it’s also affectionately known) was introduced in 1911 and has been a staple shoe for outdoorsy types for well over 100 years. Now, the beloved Bean Boot is the hot item for the holiday season and has been selling out everywhere. Best of luck finding a pair if you haven’t ordered them already, because there’s a major shortage that’s going to leave a lot of disappointed people on Christmas morning. If you order now, you might get your pair of the hand-crafted boots by summer, otherwise you’re probably out of luck. 

These are just a few of the hottest items for the holiday season but we assure you that just about anyone would go wild to unwrap any of these. Good luck with your last minute gift-hunting and remember: it’s the thought that counts.

Trending: Blanket Scarves!

What better way to accessorize than with a scarf, especially in this cold weather. The blanket scarf is a must this winter. They can add texture, color, and they keep you warm.

I personally love the tartan plaid blanket scarf from Zara in beige (pic below) and also in black (pic below). Although it is no longer available, you can find a similar one from Madewell at SHOPBOB here or a striped version from Topshop here or a bold plum and grey tartan blanket scarf from TheProvidenceStory on Etsy here.

And of course men can rock it too. I’m especially loving the Louis Vuitton FW12 blanket scarf in camel and black. I need that in my life!

A perfect gentleman’s closet

As you may already know, I have a thing for closets. I love organizing them, color coordinating the items in them, creating a harmonious flow throughout the wardrobe and personalizing the overall look to make it easy to explore.

A man’s wardrobe should be a reflection of his style and his art of manliness. One that can keep his closet pristine and well organized is a major ➕PLUS➕in my books. Here are few closet ideas that may help in creating the perfect gentleman’s closet.

Trending: Herringbone Vest!

A few months ago, J.Crew came out with this fab excursion quilted vest in herringbone here that sold out very fast.

This down-filled puffer vest is light, compact and perfect for layering. The slimmer silhouette adds glamour to it’s sporty shape but it’s the herringbone pattern that gives it the extra spice.

Trending: Beanies!

Beanies (a.k.a tuques) are a must this Fall. Especially with the cold weather creeping in, it’s a great way to stay fashionable and warm at the same time. There are so many colors to choose from, you are sure to find one for every outfit. 😉

Here are some of my fave “beanie” looks:
