The holidays are here and the party invitations have started to come in. As women, we always go the extra mile to look our best for these holiday parties and festive occasions. But as we doll ourselves up for a night on the town, let’s not forget to give the men in our lives a little guidance!
Men have important wardrobe choices to make to look their best at a party. The good news is that classics are making a comeback in men’s clothing. With the addition of a few basic pieces and coordinating accessories, men can be well dressed for any affair.
A dark suit is fine for an after work or office party. You can choose an interesting color for a shirt or tie to match the season. Burgundy, blue and hunter green are good basic colors for a shirt. Add a tie with a small to medium print or stripe that picks up the color of the shirt. You might even go festive and choose a tie with blinking lights!
If the party is casual, you have many choices in classic mens clothing styles. A plaid shirt is a safe choice as well as fine wale corduroy pants. Dark colored well fitted jeans are also a good choice for casual parties. Choose a wool or cashmere sweater or a dark colored blazer to complete the outfit.
For festive or more formal parties, a dark suit with a white shirt and dark tie are a safe standard outfit. You can dress up the outfit a bit with a satin or silk pocket square in a bright color. Adding jeweled cuff links or tie pin can also add a little holiday flair. This basic outfit will make any man ready for his favorite holiday fete.
Now go light up the night!
