    This is the perfect outfit for that holiday cocktail party and it's absolutely my favorite. I love the juxtaposition of the tuxedo look with the slim jean - it's a Kane in Black and it just relaxes the tux a little bit. I love the oversize bow tie because it looks really regal. A patent leather tux shoe with it makes it look so crisp.

    Meet the Parents

    This look is for when you're going to meet your girlfriend's parents, and you need to look presentable but still relaxed. I like the Kane in Raw Spruce because you still look comfortable but put-together, and the Spruce adds a bit of subtle holiday color. I put it with a top coat because it's so grown up. A black oxford adds a bit of sheen so that it looks a little more dressed up and elevates the denim.

    I love this outfit for something really glamorous, like New Year's Eve in London. We paired this amazing green velvet jacket with the Kane in Raw because it's so crisp and clean and it takes the whole look down a little bit. We polished it up with this gorgeous blue scarf. It dresses up the whole look and you look like you're going places.
