Office Christmas Party… We Got You Covered!
December is upon us once again and our social calendar goes into overdrive. With plans each weekend and nights out squeezed in during the working week we can understand that deciding on the perfect outfit for your work Christmas party can often feel like a chore. However, with champagne popping and mistletoe floating around the room it’s important to always look your best and our definitive list will help you do just that!
Your work’s Christmas party is always a tough one to buy for, but in our opinion, opting for a smart-casual look is often a winner. Not too overdressed in a full suit, but donning a fine shirt with some jeans and brogues is likely to suffice here.
Let’s start with the jeans…
The age old saying is that jeans go with anything and to an extent this is correct. With the array of styles and colours available today it is important to set the tone with the right pair. To ensure a smart-casual look you should always buy dark jeans, blacks/dark navy’s are spot on and at the very least a skinny fit to show off your manly figure.
Scotch & Soda Black The Nero Skim Skinny Fit Jeans – £94.95
The Nero Skim Skinny Fit Jeans from Scotch & Soda features a zip fly and classic five pocket style. With a brand tab behind the waistband and a brand label on the right back pocket, these jeans come in a black design.
Next, we move on to your shirt…
A well fitted shirt is vital here. Go too tight and risk looking like you’re trying to mimic Popeye and go too oversized that you look as if you have borrowed your Dad’s clothes for the evening. We suggest aiming for a crisp white or gentle monochrome to keep your outfit looking fresh.
J Lindeberg Off White Slim Fit Daniel Sc Granpa Soft Half Button Up Shirt – £87.95
This grandpa collar design by J Lindeberg comes in an off white colour and half button up. It is a fantastic alternative to a standard shirt and will offer a stylish, smart look to your outfit this year. We can’t describe how perfect this shirt is!
Moving swiftly on to the blazer…
Now, nothing quite sets the tone like a well manufactured and smart blazer. It defines you as a man and can make any rough diamond sparkle and shine. A fine wool blazer is all the rage this year and bursting through the doors in a well fitted blazer is sure to put you top of the best dressed table this Christmas.
Scotch & Soda Combo A Grey Knitted Wool Blazer – £214.95
The Knitted Wool Blazer in Combo A Grey from Scotch & Soda features Inside pockets with brand label attached to it, one welt pocket to the chest left and two front flap pockets. This long sleeved blazer for men has notched lapel along with a brand logo tab on it and two-button front and we feel that is perfect to master the smart-casual look.
Now, to top off the outfit completely… the shoes…
I am a firm believer that shoes make a big impact when you first enter a room and so it is paramount that you have the right wheels on in this race. To round this outfit off with some style we think a pair of trench shoes will give you a touch of class and a unique edge cutting you a notch above everyone else.
Base London Washed Tan Trench Shoes – £69.95
The Trench Shoes by Base London feature lace-up fastening with blind eyelets, slip-on styling and perforations to the front. This pair of shoes has slim toe tip design and polished leather upper. With punched hole detailing all over, it comes in Washed Tan colour.
