#EGCStyle Holiday Must Have

Living in Alabama the weather is hit or miss around the holidays. One day it could be freezing and the next day you could be running around town in flip flops. And for this very reason it’s ok to break fashion “rules”.

Though the weather doesn’t always work in our favor, there is one MUST HAVE that every well dressed Guy should have in their Closet for the Holiday’s—A Tailored Blazer. Whether you’re heading to a Christmas party or to the office you can always count on a blazer to carry you through the season.

I think the thing that I like most about a good blazer is the versatility it allows– you can dress it up or down. Pair it with a pair of trousers, button down and a tie and your ready for the office. But if you want something a little more casual throw on a pair of jeans, and a sweater.

When pulling this look together I followed a few basic style rules—1.) Color 2.) Pattern 3.) Texture. I brought Color AND Pattern in with my Striped sweater from The Gap and texture with the herringbone blazer from Banana Republic. Don’t be afraid to play. Fashion is what you make of it. Confidence goes a long way!

I know you all wondering… Elephant in the room, My New Specs. Tuesday will be a week since I caved and took a trip to the vision center. My eyes have been KILLING me recently since all I do is sit in front of the computer. I tried on probably 30 pairs of glasses and finally settled on these. It kind of gives “Evan the Wedding Planner” a more sophisticated look. I’m still getting used to them, but I should’ve gotten them a long time ago. I’ve gotten tons of compliments and the ladies are climbing all over me. 😉

HUGE Thanks to my sweet Friends Aubrie Lemon for snapping these photos for me! We had such a great time! She made me feel like a was a Calvin Klein Model, just fully clothed! 😉 And Patti Lynn, my hair stylist. I mean look at my hair?!?! She knows how to style some hair y’all!

For those of you who are interested, I posted the links to each piece of my look below! Happy Shopping!
