NYE Style for the Dapper Man
December 28th, 2011
There is nothing sexier to me than a man in a velvet blazer! Earlier today, I walked past Saks Fifth Avenue on my way to work. In their holiday window display was a mannequin, but not just any mannequin… a mannequin in a fitted blue velvet blazer. I immediately stopped dead in my tracks and stared. What is it about the velvet blazer that is so sexy on a man? And why am I staring and drooling over a mannequin? It’s not even a living human being. Anyways, back to the point of this post… it’s almost New Years Eve! I believe it’s important for a man to look his best when ringing in the new year. Not only does it make a man feel confident in himself, but it completely sets the tone for the new year to come. Who want’s to go into 2012 looking like shlep?
