Party season has arrived to bring joy back into our lives and with it brings plenty of festive frolics and prized partywear. Although times are uncertain, there's no reason why you can't still get dressed up, even if just to stay indoors with a tipple accompanied by your nearest and dearest. Whether you're celebrating in the house or hitting the town, here's some inspiration toward your all important attire.
The Christmas Party is your opportunity to prove to your colleagues and friends that you know how to scrub up! So put a little extra thought into it and with it being Christmas, why not wear some velvet!? Even just a hint will do the trick, try a black velvet waistcoat paired with a muted grey suit like our Edwin for a bit of understated elegance. We know velvet isn't for everyone so if in doubt, our Edwin style works just as well as a standalone suit, with a silvery hue which is just perfect for the season!
It's a special one, so leave those comfy pjs on the backburner for now in favour of a classic tweed suit which is guaranteed to get the in-laws approval. It doesn't have to be a three piece suit if your plans are little more low-key, a cosy roll neck knit is the perfect pairing with your two-piece on a cold Christmas morning and will keep you comfortable throughout the day. When darkness draws in and the dinner has been devoured, then you can reach for the pjs!
The festivities continue on Boxing Day as we'll likely be seeing more family members and eating more food! Everything should be in excess over Christmas and your style should be one of those things, so keep it classy with a timeless blue check two piece. Whether you're dining out or heading to family homes, this look paired with some trusty Chelsea boots is smart casual vibes and effortlessly suave.
The finale of the festivities which means it's only right you should go out with a bang! You may be lucky enough to be attending a dinner party, or maybe you're enjoying some beverages somewhere sophisticated, either way the velvet has to come back for one last appearance. Go head to toe velvet or break it up with some black trousers and waistcoat, and don't forget the bowtie for the full effect!
