The party season is upon us which means it’s time to scope out the hottest looks for this stylish time of the year.
Here at Slaters, if there’s one thing we know, it’s how to dress to impress… If you follow our guide to the top trends for this year’s party season, you can be the centre of attention at all your social events during the festive period.
Whether it’s drinks with work colleagues, a laid-back family Christmas or a raucous new year party in with your closest mates, we’ve got the perfect look for every occasion.
The Velvet Blazer
One of the hottest looks for this year’s party season is the velvet blazer! The men’s velvet blazer is a versatile investment piece for the celebratory season, ideal for all kinds of occasions.
Choose from a classic black, a seasonal burgundy or a bold blue, all of which can be styled to be the height of formality or as cool and casual as you like.
The Dinner Suit
If you’re attending a black-tie event this season, then a dinner suit is a must have. Our selection of men’s dinner suits is brought to us by a range of different tailoring brands, meaning that our range of black-tie suits has something to offer every man.
From affordable options as low as £65.00, to more premium options ranging up to £249.00, we’ve got a dinner suit that won’t just suit every style but budget too.
Men’s dinner suits are an essential for black-tie events, and should be finished off the traditional way with a sharp white shirt, bow tie of your choice and perfectly polished pair of dress shoes.
The Party Shirt
If you’re looking to play it cool and take a more dressed down approach for the party season, then a party shirt is the best option for you.
Our collection of men’s party shirts are available in a range of designer brands and are designed to flatter every physique. Whether you want top quality with a subtle design or an affordable show stopper, we’ve got the perfect party shirt for every occasion.
We think these going out shirts look best paired with your favourite denim jeans and a pair of brogues for an effortlessly cool look.
Your footwear choices are just as important as your clothing, so make sure you pick the perfect pair of men’s shoes for every event during the party season.
Every outfit works best with a different style of shoe, we’d recommend a pair of brogues to accompany a casual shirt or one of our dapper velvet blazers, but we’d always suggest pairing your dinner suit with a sleek dress shoe. A pair of simple Chelsea boots also work well for the more dressed down occasions.
The Finishing Touches
It’s the way you finish a look that will make or break it, so make sure you put the perfect finishing touches to your party looks.
When it comes to dinner suits, a bow tie is an essential. A classic black bow tie is always a winning choice, however if you want to throw in a touch of personality to your party look, then a coloured bow tie is a great way to do so.
If you want to pair your velvet blazer with a tie, we’d recommend going for a silk or shiny finish tie, the contrasting fabrics make for a great overall look.
If you’re sporting a blazer or suit jacket of any kind to any of your festive events, be sure to remember to complete the look with a pocket square that matches your outfit, and if you want to impress even more, try following one of our folding tutorials here!
