Whether you’re traveling for the holidays or hosting the feast in your own home, Thanksgiving is generally pretty chaotic. Extra-long airport lines, shortages of pantry staples at the grocery store, and guests who RSVP at the last minute can make a perfectly lovely holiday feel like a Herculean task. However, packing your bags for holiday travel and still looking great around the table can be a snap with just a few wardrobe staples.

Suede or leather? Knee or ankle? Classic or Contemporary? Rain or Snow? Gray, Black or Brown?  

Boots are a hot trend for cold weather, but with the wide range of styles, materials and colors to choose from, choosing the perfect pair can be a challenge. Dr. Tyson Green, foot and ankle specialist with Center for Orthopaedics, says it’s worth taking some time with your decision. "Don’t sacrifice comfort for style. Careful consideration of your options can prevent discomfort and even painful foot injuries. When it comes to boots, you should always put your feet first.”

No one really likes being in a department store dressing room under florescent lighting, hoping a garment will fit because there’s no sales associate in sight. Needing the next size up can result in an embarrassing, half-dressed shuffle across an entire department only to discover the next size is out of stock. But until recently, perusing a department store seemed like a necessary evil for updating a wardrobe.

If you’re a guy who was born anytime during the few decades a bow tie has probably never been a go-to fashion accessory for you. That’s all changing though because bow ties are one of this year’s biggest fashion trends for men.

Face it, the summers are hot in Southwest Louisiana so no one wants to trudge around in jeans or long pants all the time. Plus, it’s hard to enjoy an afternoon by the pool or a sunset boat ride in these suffocating fabrics. Selecting the right pair of shorts can be a challenge though and for most, it’s right next to finding the perfect swimsuit on the anxiety scale.

From fixing our cars and mowing the lawn to getting rid of the spiders and other creepy crawlies in our house, the men in our lives are often called upon to take care of some of life’s more unpleasant tasks. Given their dedication and bravery, we tend to overlook their less than fashionable clothing choices.

Ladies love a sharp dressed man though, so instead of a new set of tools or a six-pack of his favorite adult beverage this Father’s Day, why not consider making over the man in your life? We asked the experts at Clothing Concierge for some do’s and don’ts of men’s fashion.

Fashion is something that is different to everyone. The great thing about fashion is that there are no right or wrong ways to do it.
