Men often get a bad rap for being less fashionable than women, and it is their fault since most men don’t even try to look stylish. You wouldn’t see a man reading about changing fashion trends like women do because men tend to be conservative in their clothes. This is the reason why we see more women in fashion shows than men.

However, it is equally important for men to look stylish and present their A-game in fashion just like women. Men need to understand the importance of style, men who strive to dress better bring out their best and encourage other men to look as classy as them.

The only situations in which we see most men being dressed well are either attending a formal occasion or going out on a date. They do this because not only do they want to impress other people, but they also want to strengthen their confidence. However, things have changed since the pandemic, the fashion world has completely changed, and men now understand the importance of looking good more than ever.

Holidays and Men’s Fashion

The pandemic taught us to live to its fullest and always present ourselves in the best way possible, and since the holiday season is just around the corner, there could be no better time to bring out our best style. This holiday season dressing well can become an essential aspect for men from all over the world, and if you are a man, you too will get a chance to look dapper holiday occasions such as Christmas, New Year, and thanksgiving.

Since you would have a packed schedule and so many essential commitments where you would want to look chic, we have prepared a guide that will help you add ten-holiday outfits that will make you look contemporary.

  1. A Weather-ready Parka with Slim Fit Bottoms

Since winters are almost here, most of our outfits would consist of excellent layering items that would keep us warm during this festive season and help achieve that voguish look. A Parka was initially made from seal skin and is still used for warm and safe hunting in Arctic temperatures, but many things have been trending no matter how non-conventional they were initially.

A Parka comes in numerous styles, but the ones that would look best on you this winter season are the minimalist ones and those with clean lines. The best thing about a parka is that you can stuff a pile of sweaters and scarves beneath a parka, and no one would notice.

A parka comes in different sizes, but the ones that are classier than the rest is the one that ends just above your waist. The most suitable clothes with a parka would be a turtleneck, a scarf, slim-fit jeans, and thick worker boots.

  1. Winter Coat and Fit Bottoms

This outfit is for people who want to look brighter and sharper than everyone else in the room. The outfit is straightforward to carry as all you need is a winter coat that is neither too big for you nor too short; the coat wouldn’t only provide a classy look and help you combat the cold. It would be best if the skin is waterproof as you would be facing wet conditions during this winter season.

Beneath the coat, you can wear a long-sleeve t-shirt for added protection and because the tee will stick to your body much better. Below those skin-fit jeans are vital because they make your legs more visible and provide a sharp look; in the end, you would be walking on snow and need something waterproof.

  1. Denim on Denim

Denim jackets look incredibly cool on men, but there could be no better combo than a denim jacket with denim jeans. Although a denim jacket would not suit sub-zero weather conditions but still in chilly weather, it can give you a sleek look.

A denim top with a denim bottom goes perfectly when the bottom is of a darker shade, and the top is of a lighter shade. A dark base helps make your body look slimmer, and a light top can help you draw attention to yourself.

  1. The Work from Home Outfit

During the pandemic, the virus forced the world to work from home, and during these work hours, everyone had to attend zoom meetings. These zoom meetings would only show our tops, and most people took advantage of this as they wore shorts and sweatpants with their dressy tops.

Wearing a WFH outfit this holiday would let you be relaxed yet comfortable; you can wear any shirt or sweater with a relaxed-fit chino instead of sweatpants. The chino would give you a relaxed look, whereas the top would define your style. The thing goes on with this outfit, but the outfit gets a little more polished as people would see us entirely from top to bottom.

Since you keep it relaxed at the bottom, you can wear sneakers and joggers for a simple style.

  1. The Winter Workout Outfit

During this holiday season, owning a winter workout outfit is a must for most men. The purpose of a workout outfit is to make you look fit and to be extremely lightweight. Since the holidays would be in the cold season, you wouldn’t have to wear shorts to replace them with leggings. The top would consist of an excellent graphic t-shirt and a stretchy and lightweight puffer jacket.

  1. The All-White Look

An all-white outfit is considered boring, but that is because most people don’t know how to carry it. It would be best to try to incorporate different textures since a monochromatic look can turn boring; you should also try to break it up with accessories such as scarves and add neutrals. The best combination in an all-white look includes a white coat, formal white trousers, and white shoes. White represents perfection and cleanliness, and there could be no better time to express such things than a holiday.

  1. The Christmas Party Outfit 

The Christmas party is one of the most significant events of every holiday season. What could be better than a classy Christmas outfit with a primary red sweater, blue jeans, and brown Chelsea boots? The red sweater is one of the main things you can wear this holiday and especially on Christmas; the sweater should also have some exciting designs and textures so you can attract people and stand out from other men.

  1. A Leather Jacket with Literally Anything

A leather jacket has been the oldest and most versatile piece of clothing ever to exist, this classy and timeless fashion staple can make anyone look good, and you can pair it with anything. Adding a leather jacket to your wardrobe this winter season would mean that you can have a rugged and manly style at every party and every occasion.

One fantastic thing about wearing a leather jacket is that you can also wear custom leather jackets with different styles and graphics. A tailored coat would define your style and separate you from everyone in a unique way.

  1. The Safari Park Look

This holiday season, you can do something different as the safari park look would help you achieve a quirky look. This outfit would look the best during the daytime, to achieve this look you can wear a double pocket shirt and it would be best if it’s green. Below that, you can wear a rolled-up beige chino and a pair of casual shoes. You can also enhance this outfit with dark-colored scarves and hats.

  1. The Athleisure Wear

This holiday outfit is a must for your wardrobe as it has been trending for a long time now; the word Athleisure comes from athletic and leisure, and the purpose of this outfit is to involve both aspects in an attire. This outfit has gained immense popularity because it allows you to look fantastic and feel comfortable at the same time.

Adding an Athleisure outfit to your wardrobe for holidays means that you will feel more active and healthy when you wear it. You can wear an overcoat with relaxed sweatpants and sweatshirts.

Final Note 

These were some of the best holiday outfits that you can add to your wardrobe. However, it is not mandatory that you strictly follow these outfits. All you need to do is to keep practicing and wear costumes that would represent your style.

54 Kingdoms Unveils Its Final World Cup Collection: Forward Ever, Backward Never!

54 Kingdoms Unveils Its Final World Cup Collection: Forward Ever, Backward Never!

The 2022 FIFA World Cup just kicked off in Qatar, where Africa is being represented by Cameroon, Ghana, Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia.

For most Africans, the tournament is a platform that reinforces continental unity, helping bridge the gap between Africans on the continent, and Diasporans globally. Since 2010, when South Africa became the first African country to host the tournament, 54 Kingdoms embarked on a creative journey of designing collections inspired by the United African vision engineered by the honorable Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

Forward Ever, Backward Never is the final World Cup collection by 54 Kingdoms as the company reaches the last phase of its unity design blueprint. The blueprint, which is primarily inspired by Pan-African giants, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Marcus Garvey ― aims to give the continent a larger vision of itself via four main themes: Educate, Unite, Build and Progress. Each collection is tied to a theme dating back to Homecoming in 2010 (Educate), Score for Unity in 2014 (Unite), and Goal 54 in 2018 (Build).

“This is a bittersweet moment for us. As storytellers, one of the hardest things is to write an ending for any story, and unfortunately the end has come for our World Cup collection series. This creative journey started with inspiration from Dr. Nkrumah and will end with him. Hence, a collection paying homage to one of his profound statements, Forward Ever, Backward Never” ~ Kwaku Awuah, 54 Kingdoms President.

In the Progress phase, the Forward Ever, Backward Never (FEBN) design seeks to echo Nkrumah’s larger vision of a united and developed Africa free of any form of colonial rule. However, ‘Forward Ever, Backward Never’ also means Africa shouldn’t bemoan its past misdeeds all the time; we should forge ahead, but when a similar challenge resurfaces, we look back and remind ourselves that we shouldn’t make the same mistake again.

Throughout this tournament, Forward Ever, Backward Never is a reminder to Africa’s representatives to push forward even when it seems impossible, and never look back!

The Forward Ever, Backward Never is a limited edition collection available for pre-orders on November 23, 2022 with expected shipment starting on December 9, 2022. More details will be updated on the 54 Kingdoms website soon!

Published

mail

On Sunday 6th November 2022, Nigeria will be hosting the first African premiere for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at Filmhouse Cinemas – Victoria Island, Lagos Nigeria. The African premiere is set to celebrate Wakanda and the Marvel Studios’ film franchise and all its African heritage and richness.

An African premiere of the sequel to the Black Panther movie, hosted in Nigeria, sheds light on the global rise and impact of the African entertainment industry. This recognition attests to the incredible talent and work showcased by Africans in the creative industry and promises to fill the atmosphere of the premiere with celebration.

The allure and glamour that dominates African movie premieres, will not be lost at this event with notable A-list actors, filmmakers and entertainers walking the carpet before watching one of the most-anticipated movies of the year.

In celebration of the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the dress code is  “AfroFuturism: Show Them Who We Are!”, a theme that is adequately depicted in the movie. As a whole, AfroFuturism synergizes aspects of science fiction, magic realism and fantasy to reimagine Afrocentrism. Representations of this would include futuristic accessories, metallic fabrics and makeup looks merged with African prints/fabrics and hairstyles.

 

  FilmOne Co-founders, Moses Babatope and Kene Okwuosa, are enthusiastic about the premiere and film’s release, “Being instrumental to the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in West Africa is a proud achievement and a milestone for us and the entire FilmOne team, it will be celebrated for a long time. We are excited and fully committed to working with The Walt Disney Company to deliver a grand African premiere, even as we channel all our arsenal towards realizing a momentous box-office performance for the title,” they said.

Here are some styles to draw inspiration from for the event:
