With autumn in full swing it is now approaching that time of year when Christmas and New Year plans are being formulated. Whether you are attending a formal shindig or just heading for a meal or some casual drinks, there’s no doubt that we all want to look our best and join in with the festivities.
When Slaters Menswear asked The Everyday Man, The Gentleman Select and myself to collaborate on a partywear shoot for the up and coming festive season we didn’t hesitate. What could be better, three mates (and bloggers) picking outfits for the up and coming festivities from a huge selection of items within Slaters Partywear collection. This party season the “most wanted” items range from colourful velvet blazers, to stylish slim/skinny fit suits and tux’s. Depending on your shape, size or financial outlay, Slaters have you covered.
As a rule of thumb if I am heading out on the town I tend to stick to my trusty jeans and shirt combo, but for Christmas and New Year its only right that you get properly dressed for the occasion and this means ditching the casual look and opting for something far smarter. I rarely have the opportunity in life to suit and style up so this was the perfect opportunity for me to explore my smarter side.
As someone who dresses casually often, I decided to flip this on its head completely and opted for a Black Skinny Fit Three-Piece suit from Slaters ONESIX5IVE collection. I also chose a plain white shirt from the ONESIX5IVE range and rather than sticking with the traditional shirt and tie look, I added a splash of colour and sophistication with a burgundy knitted bow tie and matching pocket square. To complete the look, I opted for a nice round toe black shoe again from ONESIX5IVE.
When it comes to dressing smart it is essential that an outfit, especially a suit is fitted correctly and this is where Slaters have you covered as they offer free alterations on all purchases, which means whichever way you like to wear your suit, they have you covered.
Hopefully you have gained some outfit inspiration for your up and coming parties over the festive season. Don’t forget to check out The Everyday Man & The Gentleman Select for more party season outfit inspiration and style tips to help you and your nearest and dearest to #SUITUPINSTYLE.
