As the Christmas party season draws closer, it’s usually the ladies that you hear discussing what to wear to the various events that they’ve been invited to. However, although it’s true that women have more styling options – cocktail dress, ball gown, jumpsuit or matching co-ords, for example – nailing your party attire as a man is arguably even more tricky, because you only have one choice of outfit: the suit.
Fortunately there are ways for the dapper man to give his suit a luxe edge this party season. And, let’s face it, when it comes to men’s formalwear Moss Bros is the go-to destination. Having first opened their doors in 1851 in Covent Garden, it’s safe to say that – as London’s original suit store – Moss Bros’ suiting heritage and expertise is second to none.
Moss Bros now have a large selection of their formalwear online, as well as offering click and collect services to their 135 UK stores, so if you’re a gent looking to update his party style this season then their website’s a great place to look for inspiration…
Firstly, you could experiment with colour. A white or navy blazer, for example, would stand out against the sea of customary black at a Christmas party. Then there’s the style and material of your suit to consider. A velvet or tartan tuxedo jacket can look more traditional, for instance, while slim fit suits have a contemporary feel. You could even update your look with a new dress shirt: pleated front and contrast button shirts can both add subtle interest to your party look.
Even if you already have your suit, but are looking to update it in some way, Moss Bros also have a large range of formal accessories. You could choose to pair your suit with a skinny black tie or colourful bow tie, or maybe even consider a printed pocket square to add some personality to your ensemble. There are also more classic accessories available such as their choice of silver cufflinks or tie pins to finish off your party look.
So fashionable men can now breathe a sigh of relief this Christmas, because Moss Bros have your all your sartorial party needs covered. You’re welcome.
