The holiday season is here and that means it is time for celebration. Celebration means party so I’m here to help explain what each holiday get-together requires for its attire.
Family and Friends Party
If party is at someone’s house, casual is the best way to go. A pair of dark wash, fitted jeans and a fitted, collared shirt will make your look sleek and comfortable. Make sure to still wear loafers and a belt to compliment and pull together your outfit.
If your team is gathering in a conference or recreational room, you can feel free to keep it business casual. Wear dress pants, a fitted button down, a jacket, and tie. Polish the outfit off with a great pair of loafers. While this may be a holiday mixer, it is still an opportunity to impress and network with fellow employees.
Headed to a restaurant for appetizers and drinks? It’s time to suit-it-up. Wear a statement suit whether it is pinstripes or a great grey color suit with a fitted shirt and tie underneath. Make sure your outerwear looks polished as well; try buying a structured coat to keep your look clean. Do not forget your leather gloves and earmuffs.
Black Tie Affair
This means a tuxedo, no other options. If you do not own a tuxedo, make sure you browse your local shops for deals, and keep yourself looking more stylish than a penguin. Just think of you as James Bond, just don’t get too into character, it isn’t Halloween anymore.
If it sings, lights up, or has an easily identifiable character on it- the item has got to go. It is not because no one will enjoy a carol playing from your tie, but it is because you should wear your clothes not vice versa.
