Guy Files: Holiday Outfit Ideas For The Stylish Gent
As our holiday calendars quickly fill up, the need for outfits that are appropriate for a wide variety of occasions comes to a head. Whether you are a guy who considers himself fashionable, fashion-challenged, or in need of an appropriate outfit for the first time meeting the parents of a significant other, here are some ideas to ensure you make a good impression.
Meeting a significant other’s family for the holidays can be a bit stressful, especially when you really like that special someone. Keep it simple and sleek with pairings that mix your work wardrobe with your casual one: great denim, stylish loafers and a pop of color to impress mom.
Your work holiday party is a great way to show off a more fun side of your personal style, especially if you work in a more conservative office environment. The main tip: Don’t use this as an excuse to go too casual. Whether you are into fashion or not, the impression you make on others in a work environment is very important, and who knows? Maybe that fashionable outfit will catch the eye of a quiet co-worker or respected superior and lead to a fabulous opportunity to get ahead in your field.
For New Year’s Eve, dressing up always seems a part of the agenda no matter where you end up. Substitute those holiday colors for a rich bordeaux, navy or oxblood to keep your look dapper. Try colored jeans, or a sleek varsity jacket for a more casual scenario.
