Fashion Forward: Gifts for Dads and Boys
Looking for the perfect gift for that special guy in your life? Don't go for that same boring, old tie, the Nightteam's Diana Diaz dresses up the holidays by taking your man Fashion Forward.
WSVN -- Want to spruce up the look of the man in your life? Give them the gift of fashion at Macy's at the Aventura Mall. Guys can go from dressed up to casual with ease.
Melissa Goff: "For dad, go for a bright-colored polo. For the younger guys, go for something that's embellished, whether it's from Ed Hardy or maybe Affliction."
These Ed Hardy T-shirts and embroidered jeans are great for hanging out or a night out on the town.
This leather jacket by Guess has a detachable hoodie underneath for those warmer nights. Your guy will look great in a matching printed T and hoodie by Sean John.
Melissa Goff: "Any type of a detail or treatment, whether to jeans, whether to a leather jacket, whether to T-shirts, and it could be screen-printing, it could be embellishments."
Your little one can look just like dad in a Phat Farm embellished hoodie with jeans or be too cool for school in a black leather jacket over a plaid shirt. This colorful polo looks pulled together with cargo pants and Crocs.
If you don't know your guy's size, pick up a wallet or money clip perfectly packaged for the holiday. Keep him on time with a watch by Guess or Kenneth Cole, or buy him one of the hottest fashion items of the season: a messenger bag.
Melissa Goff: "Because the guys need something to carry their blackberry, their laptop, their cell phone, their iPod."
At Shop 603 on Las Olas, bling is in. Have him try a Bulls-eye red T over a pair of True Religion jeans with studded detail and a colorful Ed Hardy belt, or go all out in a Christian Audigier T-shirt and trucker's cap with boot cut jeans and don't be afraid to add a leather cuff by Diesel and a D&G dog tag with Swarovski crystals to make your guy really shine.
Stacy Capobianco: "The Swarovski crystals just aren't for the women. It's for a very fashionable, confident male. It looks great on, and we women want to see it."
The smaller men in your life can emulate big brother in Ed Hardy T-shirts and True Religion jeans, and you can't go wrong with a hoodie over a bright orange T. Just remember, ladies, when it comes to all the guys in your life, keep fashion fun.
Stacy Capobianco: "From little boys to the big child in your life, the dads and the husbands, it's all about the details."
Diana Diaz: "Some other great gift ideas for the guys? Usher and Calvin Klein have new fragrances out and Donald Trump has a new line of ties all wrapped up for the holidays."
