Shoes for Christmas for the man in your life

If you are wondering what to get for your other half this Christmas, a pair of shoes or boots are a practical and stylish gift idea. You can tailor the style you choose to suit your man, and unlike other fashion items, you know that every man is guaranteed to wear shoes, making them a safe option too.

 Shoes and boots for men have really moved on in fashion terms during the last few years.One of the key styles for men of all ages is the Desert Boot.  Desert boots have seen a real resurgence in popularity, with Clarks re-introducing their classic design, and other labels taking their lead. They have now become a real smart alternative as every-day footwear to the trainer, looking great with chinos and coloured denim, also proving to be both comfortable and hardwearing.  Sioux are another brand that have taken the classic desert boot style and have smartened it up in neat black suede, making this an acceptable look for evening wear too.

Spartoo have a great range of men’s smart/casual looks in footwear this season, many with seasonal reductions that make them an even more attractive choice this Christmas. So, if you’re not sure of your man’s shoe size (and believe me, this happens, I asked my sister her husband of two years shoe size recently and she answered ‘How the heck should I know?’ which did make me laugh out loud), grab his trainer, take a look, and order online – it couldn’t be easier.

Win! With White Stuff and Fashion-Mommy.

As regular Fashion-Mommy readers know, I’m a huge fan of White Stuff, the British High Street brand with an emphasis on quality and originality. I  have been lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the Winter collection that will be hitting stores later this month and have to say it  is absolutely gorgeous. Warm, cosy and with an emphasis on the sort of chunky knits that have you dreaming of snowy days, I think White Stuff clearly has another winning collection on its hands.

The images above are from the White Stuff Winter magalogue, the White Stuff version of a catalogue, that comes complete with stories that turn it into a mini catalogue. I totally adore the cute knitted tunic that is worn layered over a long-sleeved t-shirt. The combination of teal and pink looks amazing and layered over denim  this is a perfect look for Saturday afternoon shopping.

ONE-STEP KNIT SKIRT £45 

Brooklyn Knit skirt £49.95 

One thing that I really love from White Stuff is the range of cute knitted skirts. As someone who will always choose a skirt or dress over trousers, even in the dead of winter, I love the fact that these skirts can be teamed with chunky tights and boots for a snug winter look.

Kiss Me Quick beanie £17.50

Kiss Me Quick Flip Mitt- £17.50 

As usual, there are some really fun accessories available this year. I love the Kiss me quick flip mitts, these are just perfect for shopping days, simply flip the mittens to mess in your purse and bag, then recover your fingers as you return to the High Street.

White Stuff continually offer something different on the High Street, and this year is no exception. Visit whitestuff.com to view the full collection.
