The party season has descended upon us with the last month of the year, and let’s face it, December is synonymous with ‘Party Month’. An important thing about parties is the look – if you look good at a party, you’ll have the best time of your life – and who knows, you may catch the eye of that special someone. Hence, the issue that arises this month is the age old question, “What do I wear?”. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Read on to find out how you can turn heads this party season!
A very important thing in determining an outfit is the ‘where’ and ‘why’ of the event. Where are you going? Is it at an upscale restaurant or a house party? Or is it just a casual evening full of dancing? If it is an upscale restaurant, no matter what the invite says, you absolutely must dress formally. If it’s just a casual evening, you can try to dress down with maybe just jeans and a well-fitted shirt.
Let’s talk about the most simple look first. A plain white, collared shirt paired with well-fitting black or blue trousers. With this look, you can play around with accessories, like adding a quirky bow-tie, or suspenders, or a funky tie. Pair this with a sports coat, and this look will easily go from casual to semi-formal in no time. It’s the best idea for those events where you’re not exactly sure what the dress code is.
If your event is more of a club scene, then you can take a few liberties. Think graphic tees with jeans. These are casual and cool – a perfect attire for a club. If you want to experiment with bolder looks, look at leather shirts and jackets (but never pair them together), as they certainly add an element of rock to any look. The staple of any club scene is a pair of jeans. Add the freshest pair of sneakers you own to this equation, and voila, you’ll be the man of the evening.
Any and all black-tie events have unspoken rules about dressing for them, and those must be absolutely adhered to. A classic black suit should not only make you stand apart from the riff-raff, but also make you feel confident and look like one of the most well-groomed men at the party. An office party is the best place for you to showcase the suave gentleman you are! However, if you feel the need to experiment, try out velvet suits – a designer’s choice. Bold colours like green and maroon will leave you looking elegant, but still won’t take away from your machismo. The only thumb rule of suits is that they should fit perfectly. Try out Siyaram’s Tailor Fit service for the perfectly crafted suit that you deserve.
Finally, the most important thing to remember is that your attitude matters the most. How you wear your outfit, knowing your best assets, how you carry your look, well-fitted clothes, accessories, haircut, manicured beard, nails, and so on.
