"Nothing is more festive during the holiday season than a bright bow tie, especially in winter fabrics like wool or cashmere. I did the ol' sneaky triple plaid thing — styling the bow tie with a flannel shirt and tuxedo jacket in varying shades of hunter green, while decreasing the formal factor by adding a worn-in pair of A.P.C.s. Don't be afraid to mix prints...it's the only time of year that you can get away with wearing hardcore green and red, so go for it!"—Kristian Laliberte, senior editor
