All holiday parties are different. Some small companies opt for the holiday lunch or just a cocktail party after work. These events tend to be informal. They typically last under two hours and the dress should be casual and easy. This is a great occasion to pull out your favorite cargo pants and pair them with a striped sweater and possibly a utility jacket. This outfit can be elevated with a fun pair of brogue detailed mens ankle boots.
Now if you are a banker or even someone in the tech industry, there are usually some bucks available to spring for a sit down dinner. This outfit will require a little more thought and a bit of festive flair. A few fun items to consider are trading in your tie for a bow tie or upgrading your usual Brooks Brothers Blue blazer for a Velvet Smoking jacket, possibly paired with a floral button down shirt. Your boss will definitely notice your effort and don’t forget to enhance your footwear with a pair of Italian leather mens oxfords.
Now, finally listen up, if the invitation says Black Tie, it means Black Tie. Get your tuxedo to the cleaners so it will be fresh for the big event, pull out your best set of cufflinks and shine up your best men’s leather dress shoes. This will be a night to remember and you want to be remembered for doing it right. If you follow these simple holiday dressing tips, we assure you "compliments are guaranteed".
