1. Active night out

Whether you’re taking a walk around town to check out the holiday lights or grabbing a casual dinner, make sure your outfit has the versatility to keep up with your night—you never know when you’ll need to strap on a pair of ice skates if the opportunity arises. Wear a hooded base layer under a wool bomber jacket for added warmth, then top it off with dark jeans and sneakers to take on any winter adventure.

2. Casual Errands

Those last-minute gifts aren’t going to buy themselves. Stay comfortable while running errands by layering a henley under a thick shacket. Pair with simple pants and rugged boots for a casual, sophisticated look—don’t forget to stuff a beanie in your back pocket in case the weather takes a turn for the worse.

3. On The Clock

Conquer your morning commute and look smart at work by layering an oxford shirt under a wool sweater with elevated denim and leather lace-up boots. Throw on a lightweight puffer jacket (have fun with the color) and you’ll be ready to take care of business in the boardroom during the day, and in the billiards room at night.

4. Holiday Party

It’s like clockwork—before you can even digest from Thanksgiving dinner, holiday parties begin. For a more casual party or a night out with that special someone, wear a festive flannel underneath a wool sport coat. Keep it simple with sporty chukkas and jeans for a laid-back look.
