Healy is one of my best friends and always dresses really well. Although his normal area of expertise is music, he begrudgingly agreed to pen me a male fashion post (a little flattery goes a long way) and has created a list of essential winter garments for your fella. You won’t need to worry about him wearing that awful cardigan or those trainers you can’t stand… just treat him to a few of these pieces at Christmas and he will be looking suave for all of your romantic plans.
Move over Gok Wan, Healy is here to help!
Revamp Your Man’s Winter Wardrobe
Stone Stag Valley Sweatshirt
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a novelty jumper now, would it? I mean what else do you wear to Christmas parties, to the dinner table, to bed? He could get away with wearing this one from high-street favourite, Topman, for the whole of the winter season. Priced at £28, it’s a steady investment for all.
Fred Perry Byron Mid Trainer
These mahogany suede shoes might not be so practical for the wet days but they are perfect for nights out or for looking smart on a day-to-day basis. They are available in store or online at Fred Perry.
£64.99, Fred Perry
Criminal Damage Warley Jacket
The biggest and best investment this winter is without doubt the good old coat. Prepare him to brave the elements in this Warley Jacket from Criminal Damage. This navy and brown-buttoned coat is both stylish and practical and will go great with a pair of chinos.
Red Twill Cotton Shirt
It’s not only Santa that can pull off the colour red this season; check out this smart/casual shirt from Topman. It’s not as offensively red as a santa-suit so it means you can pull it off at many a Christmas party. (Matthew gave another reference to ‘pulling’ following this statement. I swiftly removed it! – Rose)
Black Swedish Fairisle Hat
The bobble hat is as integral to Christmas as Rudolph. Even if he’s not a hat fan, he may be glad of this purchase if the weather continues to stay the way it has been lately!
Blue Snowman Motif Socks
An absolute Christmas essential is a pair of festive socks. If these don’t feature in his Christmas stocking, be sure to grab a pair from Topman at the bargain price of £3.
