TREND: Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Inspiration: Colin Firth from Bridget Jones’ Diary and Snoop Dogg
Yes, my dear friends, it ‘tis the season for the obligatory ugly Christmas sweater! There’s really nothing better (okay, except for Mariah maybe) than donning a reindeer on your shirt to get you in the holiday mood. The best part of it all is that it’s fairly cheap to get this season’s warmest look. Just head over to your local Good Will or Value Village and go hunt that sucker down. If you’re not a thrifting fan, don’t fret! Popular stores like J. Crew and Urban Outfitters are selling their own take on tradition. Now everyone can join in on the ugly sweater this season!
TREND: Leather Nails
Inspiration: Alexa Chung
I love how nails have became a canvas for expression this year, all without the palm trees and fake nails of the old days. This time, all around trend-setter Alexa Chung made waves after picking up the trophy for British Style Award again with leather nails. Don’t worry, folks. They’re not real leather, it’s just a matte effect to make them look like the real thing. Leather nail polish is the perfect way to add a little attitude to any outfit even if you’re as sweet as could be.
WTF: Eau de Pizza Hut
Things you can get in Canada: Ketchup chips, Laura Secord chocolate and Pizza Hut perfume. Yep, that last one threw me for a loop and while technically they’re not widely available, I’m still counting it as an only-Canada thing.
The food company only made 110 bottles of the fresh pizza scent with top notes of “freshly baked, hand-tossed dough” and already sent all of them to a few lucky fans. These fans were plucked right off Pizza Hut Canada’s Facebook page after they responded to the company’s question of how much do they love the smell of fresh pizza. Will it be the way to your guy’s heart? I highly doubt it, but it seems like a better idea than Burger King’s Flame by BK meat-scent body spray for men. That stuff is just repulsive.
