We're in the festive season, which means it's time to get decked up for all those parties that are lined up for you. With so many options for men's clothes, it can be difficult to choose just one. That's why we've compiled five stylish looks that will take you from day to night with ease.
Tip 1: The old school look
For a classic look, the old-school is your best bet. This style of dress code has been around since the 1800s and there's a reason for it: it's timeless. Your best bet when choosing an old-school formal look would be to go with one in black or grey with minimal embellishments. A white shirt underneath will do just fine here too; no need to splurge on fancy ties!
The most important aspect of this style is its simplicity. The less bells and whistles you wear on your suit, the better off you'll be when trying to achieve this look.
Tip 2: The new school look
The next look is the new school, which is a simple button-down shirt with trousers and tuxedo shoes. It’s a clean look that will get you in the holiday spirit.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try pairing this look with an oversize bowtie and suspenders for a more casual vibe. This can also be done by using bright colors like red or green to add some festive flair to your outfit.
Tip 3: The vintage look
One great way to stand out in the crowd is to go with a vintage look. This can include wearing a tuxedo with a bow tie and suspenders, or simply a bow tie with your tuxedo. To add some flair, you might wear your fedora hat or top hat with confidence.
Tip 4: The modern look
With the modern look, you can wear a range of colors and patterns. But what will really set your outfit apart is the details. The modern man is one who's confident enough to wear a pocket square, and one who isn't afraid to mix up his accessories with a little flair. You may be tempted to skip the tie altogether—but don't! A statement tie or bow tie will elevate your outfit from simple (albeit still chic) to bold and eye-catching.
The modern man also knows how important it is to have confidence in his own style choices: so if you're going for an ultra-dressy look, add an element of playfulness with a printed waistcoat or pocket watch chain; alternatively, if you're going for something more relaxed but still stylish (think: tuxedo), try pairing an unbuttoned shirt collar with suspenders instead of braces or cuffs.
