If you’re one of those people who is seen in a suit all year long, an office holiday party is a chance to show off your personality and style. Matthew kept the look comfortable yet social so it;s still put together enough to impress your boss.
The double breasted blazer is a nice alternative to a full suit. This one by Hardy Aimes is deconstructed so while it looks dapper, it wears like a sweater so you won’t feel constricted. We know you’ll be schmoozing with coworkers all night and maybe even getting your dance on. We traded the tie for a pocket square to keep with the cool relaxed feel of the outfit. Finish it off with a pair of boots for a hint of badass.

The holiday season is the prime time to meet your new boo’s parents. You want to look respectable and approachable without trying too hard. Nicole’s outfit is relaxed but says all the right things.
A micro print button up shows a bit of character while the cardigan keeps the overall look refined and clean. It’s comfortable, warm and may even hide a little bit of your full stomach after a big dinner. You know you can’t say no to a mom’s seconds! The Strellson dress jogger is a unique mix between a trouser and sweats so you get your casual feel with a dressy look. Now top it off with a charming smile and firm handshake and you can’t go wrong!
Outfit details: Without Prejudice Buckley Shadow Plaid Blazer $650, Van Gils Micro Circle Printed Dress Shirt $165, Parc City Wool Printed Pocket Square and Bow Tie $49, Hiltl Blurred Micro Check Dress Pant $245, Ted Baker Musken Leather Derby Cap Boot $350, Nixon Black Anthem Watch $400
Some of you may look forward to your holiday parties with your friends and family all year long. It’s a time to have fun, let loose and let’s be honest- show off. Tia’s outfit will have you looking so sharp you won’t stop getting compliments.
We go bold with pattern on pattern. The way to keep this look from taking over is to make sure one print is bigger than the other. Keep the outfit fun with a dapper bow tie and check pants of the same colour family. You’ll look like a sharp gentleman and will be the life of the party.
What to Wear to a Holiday Gala
Outfit details: Moods Of Norway Bent Slim Suit Micro Dot Print Jacket $599, Jin Qun Silk Puff $15, Stenstroms Slimline Basic Dress Shirt $195, Dion Velour TYS Bowtie $95, Tiger Of Sweden Herris Slim Solid Dress Pant $229, Hudson Ferland Double Monk Strap Leather Shoe $235, Nixon Black Anthem Watch $400
Black tie events and galas are very popular during the holidays. We know the basic go-to outfit of a tuxedo and a bow tie. However, Max’s outfit is for those who rather stand out like a peacock and not look like a penguin.
There are actually gold micro dots embedded into the Moods of Norway blazer. Its a definite eye-catcher and not something you’d see everyday. The outfit as a whole is very neutral so Max plays with textures. Accessorize with a velvet self-tie bow tie and a silk pocket square. You’ll be turning heads the moment you step through the door.
