Our Guide to Dressing Well for the Holidays
Whether you're attending a work holiday party or a gathering with family and friends, it's always important to know how to dress for the occasion. We have the perfect looks for men to wear to all the holiday parties they're RSVP'ing yes to and some have been featured in our Fall Winter 2022 Collection.
Holiday Occasions & What Men Should Wear
Casual Holiday Party
A dark pair of trousers paired with a white button-down shirt is a great look for this type of event. Denim is an acceptable casual option which means jeans paired with a luxurious cashmere or wool sweater is also a great option. Since it's the holiday season, it's worth putting effort into your outfit - even if the party is just a casual one.
Formal or Black Tie Holiday Party
Traditionally, men wear dark-coloured tuxedos with bow ties and pocket squares to black tie events. To elevate your look, consider a silk or velvet tuxedo. For an even more distinguished look, consider a King & Bay custom smoking jacket. Pair your custom smoking jacket with a black bow tie, formal trousers with patent oxfords or Prince Albert slippers for a refined, classic look that will undeniably make statement.
Cocktail Holiday Party
Typically, cocktail attire is elegant and casual. Pair dark colour trousers with a navy, grey, or black blazer and elevate your look by adding accessories. Consider pocket squares or a tie as a nice touch to help complete your look. Don't be afraid to wear blazers with patterns and colour as this will help make your outfit more festive and unique.
Office Holiday Party
If you were invited to a work holiday party but the invitation didn't include the dress code, you can't go wrong with a smart casual style. You can wear a business suit or pair a blazer with chinos. Collared or knitted polos are suitable options for the inner layer because they look great with dark trousers. Ties and accessories may not be required however, adding accessories really helps to complete your overall look and will set you apart from your coworkers.
