Men’s Holiday Style Ideas: Giveaway!

This post was made possible by iConnect and Old Spice. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Tonight is Cassidy’s work holiday party. When we get dressed up together, we LOVE it.

These five holiday style ideas for men will help dress him for every holiday party this season! Also, enter to win this giveaway of men's hair products! #ad

The above picture was taken by him, with love, when we arrived in NYC for a wedding weekend and he found that dress for me the morning of the wedding! Talk about winging it! I did have a backup plan in my suitcase but it was “meh” at most. The thing is, it was a truly special occasion – the intensely beautiful wedding of friends who had found amazing love against all odds. A simple “meh” backup plan wouldn’t do. I love that he didn’t give up and he’s the one who found this dress for me!

It made me happy to recently find something for him: A Happy HAIRdays Stocking! And you can win one too!

Cassidy loves to dress up – for weddings and for holiday parties – and for yet a third thing. He loves to do Cosplay! He can dress up like Han Solo and Doctor Who (the David Tennant one) like the best of them. His hairstyle matters!

A Han Solo with a baby Chewbacca and a bottle warmer in the background? What a guy!

And THAT is why it’s important to give him thoughtful, useful, and inspiring stocking stuffers. It’s not always easy being a husband, father, brother, son, friend, man imprisoned in Carbonite, best friend to Chewbacca, and a Time Lord too!

In all seriousness, he does put effort into his style. Generally he has an awesome red vest he wears during the holidays. And since my favorite color is red, we nearly always match. In fact, I’m going to show you a spoiler of my dress tonight:

Nice, right? And here are some awesome holiday style must-haves for men:

1 – The Coat. A wool coat. That’s a timeless look, and bonus points – it keeps you warm!

2 – His Jacket. A well-tailored jacket seems to be another timeless must for the holiday season!

3 – The Pants. For some it’s khakis. For others, it’s chinos. For Cassidy, it’s dark or distressed denim.

4 – His Shirt. Chambray is in this year. And you can never go wrong with a nice white shirt. With or without a tie.

I know it’s blurry but I LOVE it.

5 – The HAIR. Styled. With product? Yes. That’s where the Happy Hairdays Stocking comes in. I’ve been showing you specific photos of Cassidy because of his great hair in every photo! There was a method to my sometimes-blurry madness.

  1. You are lucky with Cassidy. Many men don’t like to dress up, he says looking in the mirror, being a guy who works in pajamas, err.. scrubs.

    My Dad always wore Old Spice. I remember the fragrance so well from when he would hug me in the morning before he left for work!

  2. Hubby definitely still uses Old Spice so we have a ton of products around the house! My hubby took a long while to dress up consistently. Now he totally does, even when he doesn’t need to! lol

  3. My Dad used Old Spice and then after he died my husband started using it. I thought it was so sweet. Hope you two “youts” had fun at your Holiday work party!

  4. Oh he’s got to do Blade Runner cosplay!!! I can totally see it. I mean, the original – not the new sequel because of course he isn’t old. But young Harrison – yes!!
