In the words of Coca Cola, ‘holidays are coming’ but for us here at Slater Menswear, that really means it’s time to turn our attention towards our wardrobes for the party season and that’s what we’re here to help you with today.
Creating your own signature look for all of your festive celebrations can be a lot of work, especially if you’re not usually one for experimenting with your style, so we’re going to be sharing with you three go-to party looks that will suit every man, no matter your size, style or budget.
Look 1: The Tuxedo
All of the invites for black tie events usually start to land on your doorstep around this time of year which means it’s time to break out the tux and channel your inner 007.
A tuxedo sends a streak of panic through most men, probably because it isn’t your everyday attire and fixing a bow tie is a tricky skill to master but an old-school black tuxedo is one of your most classic looks for festive parties, so you’re best becoming comfortable wearing one.
The best way to ensure you feel as good as possible in a black dinner suit is to find your perfect fit. As with any suit, an ill-fit is going to make you feel uncomfortable, so exploring different cuts such as skinny, slim and tailored will help you find a tux that is perfect for you.
Look 2: The Velvet Blazer
If you want to go for the ultimate smart casual look, the velvet blazer is a must-have addition to your wardrobe.
One of our best-selling products for last year’s party season was the velvet blazer, so it only felt right to bring velvet jackets back for Christmas 2018. You asked and we listened and this year, our selection of velvet blazers are smart and stylish whilst also being super easy to wear.
We’ve gone for black and burgundy this year as these colours are both on-trend and versatile for every gent, so we’re confident that our customers are going to love our new velvet jackets.
As for dressing your new blazer, we recommend keeping it simple with a white shirt and either black trousers or smart black jeans, depending on how formal you want to go.
Look 3: The Party Shirt
For the perfect cool but casual party look, it’s all about the open neck shirt. Our selection of party shirts are designed to help you make a super stylish statement, no matter what colour or fit you want.
Our selection of men’s going out shirts cover all the colours, fabrics and fits you could possibly want to shop including classic whites, seasonal burgundy and bold purples.
The best way to dress a party shirt is to let it be the star of the show. We recommend pairing our party shirts with black jeans and a pair of stylish brogues for a comfortable but seriously dapper look.
Christmas parties are a perfect time to dress up and show off your personal style but if you’re not super confident in creating outfits to express your own fashion sense, then these three classic looks will cover you for all the occasions you could possibly attend over the festive season.
