The Party Suit
Not your average business suit, the party suit is characterized by exaggerated bold (notch or peak) lapels in a heavy weighted wool or wool blend.
These suits are noticeably too loud for the office unless you’re the boss, but they’re perfect for holiday parties and festive nights on the town. The bold prints add character and the heavy weight fabrics keep you warm.
How To Style It
Skip the dress shirt, wear a turtleneck. Hate turtlenecks? A crew neck or v neck sweater will work too. Avoid sweating it out by choosing one that is lightweight. We like this lightweight turtleneck from our Gotstyle Launch collection.
