dressing the guys!

We have so much fun getting dressed up and showing off the style of all the girls at the Oh Joy office with Dressing the Team that I wanted to change it up this month with a special edition of...Dressing the Guys! Whether it's a friend, boyfriend, husband, or brother, guys need a little help in the style department, too! One thing I have learned about guys' style is that they tend to prefer staples and are willing to spend a little more money on a quality piece that will last for a while versus shopping a ton of cheaper fast fashion. So we kindly asked the guys in our lives to come and show us how they'd wear this versatile denim jacket from Apolis. See how they wore it!

10 Gifts for Dudes

Since the holidays are fast approaching (and Hanukkah is already in full force!), I'm doubling up on gift guides this week...this one is for the guys in your life! (And, if there are any other types of gifts you need help with, let me know. I can probably fit in one or two more guides before we get to Christmas)!

1. For that guy that likes a little something to wind-down with in the evening, Corksicle whisky wedge adds a cool twist.

2. Because a legit key chain is a sign of being a real grown-up, the Apolis key fob is cool and classic.

3. Happy feet make for a better day with these Richer Poorer socks.

4. He can look dapper and stay connected with this Jimmy Fallon for J.Crew iPhone case.

5. This Harry's shave set is both pretty and practical.

6. For that Instagram Husband of yours, get him these iPhone lenses by PhotoJojo to bump up his game ;)

7. Because every guy loves a  shirt that makes a statement. This Suburban Riot tee makes me laugh!

8. These Izola cuff links are a fun mix of classy and quirky.

9. He can mix and match and make his own Tinker watch. 

10. For the adventurer, this Izola backpack feels casual and timeless.
