Holiday Party Styles

December 12th, 2014

It’s holiday party season, time to break-out some festive seasonal pieces and enjoy the company of family, friends, and co-workers.

Before you go spiking the egg nog at the company party, remember the old saying “the better you dress, the worse you can behave”.

Here are some outfit ideas for the upcoming party circuit.

Formal

There’s no better time than a holiday party to break-out that velvet dinner jacket that you’ve been waiting for an occasion to wear. Velvet is the champagne of menswear fabrics; it’s made for celebratory occasions.

If you’re going with a velvet dinner jacket, go all out. I’m talking bowtie, dinner shirt, tux trousers, cummerbund, and an elegant overcoat like this faux-fur trimmed beauty.

Textured White Broadcloth Shirt

Semi-Formal

If the party attire is “semi formal” or “business dress” here’s a simple winning formula: charcoal suit, white shirt, black knit tie, stone grey mac.

It’s similar to what you might wear to the office, but leaning more toward formal evening wear.

Casual

If it’s a casual get together, pull out that camel topcoat that we’ve been recommending.

Throw is over a textured jacket, a simple jumper, and a casual-cool band collar shirt. Finish the look with a patterned scarf and some sharp dress boots and you are sure to be the best-dressed guy at the party.
