Let’s face it; the time of  the year to indulge in holiday festivities has  arrived. Whether it be with the family, friends, or the annual company party;  Several anticipated shindigs require you to drink, be merry, and always be stylish. So you must remain savvy.  –And not just mentally. These events are of a different pedigree to the usual weekend kickback.  They’re parties that come with a dress code and require a little thought and rather more finesse than usual. Whatever the requirements; Fear not. Tis the Season



A few elements to a velvet blazer makes it appropriate for the coming party season. The velvet lends itself well to dark rooms and jovial cheer.Wear the blazer over the top of a rolled turtleneck from Zara instead of a shirt and tie, to comeplete the relaxed yet sophisticated feel of this pairing.


It’s not often that you get to wear tasselled loafers, but the type of parties that the winter months bring can warrant such a choice of footwear. They’re fun, and a refined alternative to smart Oxfords. Invest in the best and go for it. All you need is a pair of smart trousers (ones that are cropped) like the pair from Topman, and you’re good to go.
