The Chunky Oversized Cardigan
Note: I don't condone you walking around without a shirt underneath your cardi, boys.
a plaid shirt or a solid will work just fine.
I personally love the off-white and the navy version of this type of sweater.
If it's too hot where you are, opt for a Grandpa Cardigan. Classic, clean, and ultra-popular, these cardigans work with everything from button downs to striped tees to screen tees.
I don't know if a lot of you who read this will be diving into this trend but for the sake of sharing, just in case...
Nordic sweaters came back and started to become big last fall.
They're preppy and definitely on trend right now.

Now, before we discuss suits and ties, I think we should cover jackets.

1. The Velvet Blazer.
I cannot even stress to you how luxurious, classy, and essential the velvet jacket is to a man's wardrobe.
It's been my belief for a while, and much to my happiness, when I got to IBC, one of the teachers who likes to dress well was stressing this belief while wearing one in a regal shade of navy blue.
A quote from another blogger who has fab taste:
Add one to khakhi.
Add one to grey pants.
Add a velvet jacket to nice jeans.
It's one thing to look impeccable, it's another thing to make impeccable look effortless.
