Scrooge or secret Santa, whatever your take on Christmas, there’s no denying that the party season is almost here and 2021 is set to go off. It’s time to get your wardrobe. Christmas party suits come in a range of styles. So, what’s in for 2021’s festive suit fashion?
Three Christmas Party Suit Styles for 2021
Traditional (With a Twist)
When the invitation says ‘black tie’, it’s the tuxedo that the sensible man will reach for. But tuxedos needn’t be those timeless [but boring] penguin suits. You’ve got plenty of scope to mix things up and add in your own style. The Phillips Navy Polka Dot Suit Jacket with Velvet Lapels takes that conventional aesthetic and moves it up to the next level with a slim fit and a subtle pattern. The Farrow does the same with a bit of red sparkle. Or you could up your game with a range of colourful tuxedo options that adhere to the letter of black tie, while allowing you to make your own style statement.
If you ever want to be able to genuinely claim that the ladies (or men) simply couldn’t keep their hands off you, opt for a tactile suit like the Aston double breasted. Made from the softest sky-blue corduroy, this suit is strokeably soft. And as long as the invite doesn’t state black tie, it will stand out in any party room. The colourway works with almost any complexion, and the slim fit cut is complementary to the broadest number of body shapes. Wear with a plain shirt and loafers, and keep the accessories to a minimum. Job done. Not keen on the colour, but like the tactility? Try a velvet suit instead.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, suits needn’t be boring. In fact, a well-cut suit never is. But if you want a break from the plain fabrics, a patterned suit can be dynamite at a Christmas party. Select a festive tartan number, like the Cardosi in grey. Or dial it up with a large print, like the burgundy Baruch. Pair them with plain shirts and sharp shoes and the Christmas party scene is your oyster.
Finding the right Christmas party suit is simply about reading the dress code and selecting a style that works for you. You can go bold and bright, or simple and understated. Whatever your style, wear it with confidence, and the rest will take care of itself.
