How to have a relaxing holiday without looking like a total slob
The holidays are damn stressful.
If you're anything like me, your first impulse might be to slip into a pair of stained sweatpants, pull your wool socks up to your knees, and binge Netflix for a week.
But if you want to make the most out of the holidays, I would recommend a different approach.
Look, the holiday's are a time for reunion: reunion with old friends, reunion with family, and maybe even reunion with past lovers.
In a time this special, we don't want you to lie around like a slob — we want you to squeeze the juice out of life.
Being the helpful fashion editors that we are, we've put together a collection of clothing that will help you hit you sweet spot. We want you to feel cozy and comfortable, while still looking like your finest self.
Here are our cozy-yet-comfortable picks.
The Ambush Multi Cord Hoodie
This hoodie from Ambush is one of our favourites. It's not at all subtle, so you'll need a little confidence to pull it off; but if you want to stand out during the holiday season, this is the piece for you. The multicoloured draw strings are connected by a high quality, custom branded metal clasp. The hoodie features ribbed cuffs and hem and is manufactured from 100% cotton in Japan.
Jean Michel Basquiat inspired a generation of creatives — from actors and musicians like Leonardo Dicaprio and Madonna, to hip hop stars like Jay Z. He's one of the most important artists of the 20th century, and his work focused on topics like power structures, class struggle and colonialism. His most famous painting sold for $110 Million in 2017. Yep, you heard that right. This beanie exemplifies a comfortable-yet-stylish holiday. This style features a medium height profile and a print of the cover art he created for his 1983 single, Beat Bop.
The Burger Show T Shirt
You'll probably be wearing many layers over the holidays, but in the off chance that you de-clothe, there's no better shirt to do it in. Instead of eating too many burgers like a slob, you can look at this illustration and use your imagination while munching on some kale chips. This tee will keep you cool, comfortable, and healthy.
Helmut Lang Sweatpants
No list of holiday clothing is complete without a pair of sweatpants. But don't get it twisted, these aren't your grandpappy's sweatpants. These pigeon sweatpants from Helmut Lang are tight fitting and ultra soft. They're also made of 100% cotton in Portugal. Make sure you don't get any food stains on them. Remember — we want to be comfortable, not sloppy.
Blue ZX Torsion
These sneakers from adidas are the epitome of comfortable-yet-cool. The sneakers are made with a mesh upper, suede overlays, leather side panels and reflective details. They also feature the adidas responsive boost midsole, which are not only extremely comfortable, but also highly performant.
And that's it folks. Those are our favourite products for a comfortable-yet-cool holiday season. We hope you enjoy the holidays and squeeze the most out of these two weeks — you deserve it.
