It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving has already come and gone and December is in full swing. It's officially time for Christmas music, twinkling lights, ugly sweaters and our favorite- holiday parties! When it comes to dressing up and standing out this holiday season we have a couple suggestions for varying scenarios!
The Office Party
For this look you definitely want to add some sense of formality; after all, it is a "business" party. Go for a classic white shirt but stand out with one of our jacquard prints paired with well-tailored suit pants. Then, give it a modern twist by adding some of those heavier, "holiday suggesting" textures in your tie and/or overcoat!
The Casual Get-Together
The best part about this time of year and especially the weather is that it allows for layering. For a casual party with family and friends opt for some kind of collared shirt and sweater combination that way if it’s cold you have the sweater to cover up and if it gets a little warm you can always take it off. Play with colors which draw from the holiday color palette without directly referencing any imagery. Reds, greens, deep shades of burgundy (hint our Burgundy Paisley print), etc. all work well together and bring to mind the warm feel of the season.
The Ugly Sweater Party
When attending an ugly sweater party, be sure to wear a sweater that means something to you, so if someone asks, you can explain it (ie as a child of the 90s a Fresh Prince themed sweater is straight nostalgia). For the rest of the outfit, don’t be afraid to go all out–greens and reds. Underneath we recommend a shirt and tie should the party progress to a new location that doesn't appreciate your ugly sweater look quite the same way. Have your second "wow" look ready with a shirt from our new fall/winter collection.
