What to Wear: Snow Day

What to Wear: Snow Day
Brrrrrrr…if you’re on the East Coast right now you’ve probably just experienced several inches of snow and below freezing temperatures. Don’t let that snow day get in the way of your daily routine! Although most of us will probably be sticking indoors if we can help it, those of you who need to go outdoors just need to dress correctly. Pile on the layers! Make sure to wear long underwear like Uniqlo Heattech of Under Armour, then put on a thick shirt and pants — flannel and corduroy will do. Don’t forget to put on warm wools socks, insulated boots and warm parka. Most important of all, have all your accessories ready to go! A warm hat, gloves and scarf can mean all the difference between staying warm and freezing. If all else fails, you can always go for one of those self-heating hand warmers.

What to Wear to Cocktail Hour: The Coolest Cocktail Attire for Men

Remember the sound of ice tinkling in glasses? Remember polite conversation that wasn’t happening over a laptop or a tablet? Remember evenings that started out as slightly stiff and civilized that eventually got downright friendly and (if we were lucky) just plain fun? Stop living in the past, because if all goes as planned, the holiday cocktail party is about to make its return. This season the festivities may not be as big, nor as crowded as they used to be, but we’ll be the first to raise a glass and welcome them back.

We have learned that looking good does not necessarily forgo being comfortable. Today’s style takes a page from a mid-century Hollywood script, with nary a tie in sight, but still no less thought-out and put together. Here are a few ideas for what would catch our studied eye from across a crowded room.
