How to dress for Christmas parties? Hmmm, well unless it’s new years eve definitely avoid a santa hat or a comedy Christmas jumper because it’ll make you look a) deeply unsexy and b) like a creepy uncle no matter how lovely I’m sure you really are. So here are a few tips on how to dress for a Christmas party that will keep you going throughout the festive season – and hopefully get you a few festive kisses from the girls!
What you can do at Christmas is add a bit of a flourish with some key accessories, if there’s any season to embrace a bit of flamboyance, it’s the festive season. For a casual afternoon soiree, just add a bit of va va voom to a classic of jeans and T with wintery boots and a light wool jumper. Add a great woolly hat to keep you warm and a cool scarf that can be worn both outdoors and indoors. We are talking casual here, so the more crumpled the scarf the better. Simply throw it around your neck in a loop and away you go. Try bright clashing colours for a nod towards the Italian cool look.
We can’t talk about men’s Christmas party style without mentioning the biggest party of them all; New year’s eve. If you are attending a black tie event, then a beautiful suit is the way to go. One of the sleekest looks is to wear a slim fitting well cut suit with a crisp white shirt and a matching tie. Colourful suits are totally on trend this year with celebs like Mark Ronson and Robert Pattinson showcasing dapper slick styles.
Be bold and try midnight blue or deep burgundy but be sure to match the tie for an absolutely slick look. Consider some cufflinks that tone in with the suit. Men’s Christmas party style can easily go wrong so remember this is a chic look and every detail must tone in to create a gorgeous silhouette. No comedy reindeer ties. That won’t entice the ladies. Keep it sleek, clean and little bit interesting. That’s a little bit.
Good luck, merry Christmas from everyone at KJ Beckett and enjoy those festive parties!
