Holiday Party Style Guide

With but a handful of days left until December 25th, the holiday spirit is well underway. The tree is (hopefully) trimmed, the lights are festively illuminating your neighborhood, and your shopping is at least started. But there’s still plenty of time between now and New Year’s Eve so your calendar is probably filled with upcoming holiday events. We know you don’t want to get stuck wearing the same thing twice, so we’ve put together an easy guide to holiday party attire so all you have to worry about is showing up fashionably late.

For a casual office get-together or low-key family party, your holiday look should be all about having fun, looking great, and being comfortable. Freezing temps are the perfect excuse to go all out with layers, textures, and colors so we suggest pairing a long sleeved polo or turtleneck with a soft jacket from Lubiam and some interesting five-pocket cotton pants by Incotex. The key to making any look effortlessly stylish is the shoes: go for a fun burgundy hiking or Edward Green Chelsea boot and you’ll be the epitome of casual sophistication.

For more formal parties, we love the look of a crisp, well-fitted shirt paired with a classic navy tuxedo by Zegna. The current trend in formal wear emphasizes fit over flash; cut the jacket trim, make sure your shirt is suitably pressed, tie your bowtie correctly, and keep the accessories to a minimum.
