As we approach the Holidays-typically with family gatherings, as tradition dictates- we consider how best to represent ourselves in the company of those closest to us while celebrating the spirit of the season. Often times, the NOVELTY of the occasion helps to define its character, but it can become a hindrance if it takes precedence over an authentic, refined expression of personal style.
In other words, if that Ugly Christmas Sweater™ makes you feel any less yourself, don’t let it come between you and your manner of celebration! To balance the elements of festive appeal and timeless sophistication, Heimie’s Haberdashery has a couple of suggestions:
- A sweater vest (consider burgundy or pine green) worn over a comfortable patterned shirt will give dynamic to your outfit with layers that will keep you cozy without feeling smothered. Allow our haberdashers to help you explore these combinations.
- Corduroy trousers have a distinctive visual appeal and substantial nature and bring a delightful texture to an outfit with solid colors. When choosing between a wide-wale (ribbed) corduroy and a sleeker narrow-wale, consider balancing the trousers’ texture with that of your sweater; another element our staff is happy to help you navigate.
- Slip-on shoes such as loafers or drivers add to a smart look, lending to casual comfort; laid-back, yet practical.
As always, Heimie’s Haberdashery is grateful to be a part of your Holiday season, whether under your tree or worn by the fireside!
