5 SEASONAL PARTY LOOKS YOU CAN REPLICATE
MAKE SURE YOU'RE DRESSED TO IMPRESS WITH THIS GUIDE TO FESTIVE PARTY STYLE
Whether you want to look dapper at your work Christmas party, are looking for something a little jazzy for New Years Eve, or you like to think outside the box on Christmas Eve, you’ll doubtlessly be looking for some festive-dressing inspiration. So, before you spend your money on one of the most important outfits of the year, our friends at Clues Fashion have provided some seasonal party inspiration tips, ensuring you’re dressed to impress this festive season.
1. Black Tie
There aren’t many occasions when black tie is suitable, but Christmas is definitely one where it is. So, if you want to take advantage of that, kit yourself out like James Bond. You will need tuxedo trousers and jacket – in slim fit for a really dapper look – and a fitted white shirt. You also have the option of a waistcoat or cummerbund over the shirt. To finish, add cufflinks, a pocket square and of course, a bow tie. Finally, wear either black brogues or loafers.
2. Suited and Booted
If black tie is a little too smart for the occasion, but you still want to wear a suit, keep the black brogues or loafers on your feet, but swap the tuxedo for a sharp suit instead. You could team this with a shirt – perhaps plain for a subtler look or patterned to show off your personality – or even a roll neck can look smart under a blazer.
Vintage is back in a big way, and Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate this style by giving it a festive twist. Think cropped trousers with a heavy turn up, teamed with loafers and a reclaimed vintage patterned shirt. Perhaps with metallic detailing for a real festival feel?
4. Festive Sparkle
There is no other time during the year more appropriate for glitter and sequins than Christmas. And no, sparkles are most certainly not just for women. How about being brave and trying a sequin blazer? Sequined loafers? A sequined suit? If you would rather just add a touch of sparkle to your outfit, then opt for subtle details, such as a sequined bow tie, tie or pocket square, for example.
5. A Quirky Christmas
If you are the type of bloke who would hang baubles from his beard during the festive period then you probably want to find something a little quirky to wear to a party too. You could go for velvet trousers and/or a velvet blazer, a printed suit in a subtle festive or novelty design, finishing the outfit off with metallic shoes. If you are worried about looking over the top, you could always reign it in a bit. For example, a velvet suit jacket could be teamed with black slim fitting trousers and black brogues.
So, if you fancy a Christmas kiss under the mistletoe, you might just be in with a chance of looking this good.
