Yesterday we featured the 5 brands and 5 products which you should be most aware of at Mainline Menswear, perfect for shoppers this Christmas who might be looking for gifts or else a brand new outfit for the busy social schedules coming up.
Family gatherings, work parties and get-togethers with friends are a regular feature of any festive period and we all like to scrub up well but it can be hard picking out the right outfit for looking the part.
As we all know, it’s easier said than done looking sharp for Christmas time, but if you need some inspiration, keep on scrolling down to see our guide of the most up-to-date trends.
The Work Party
Christmas parties with work or family can be eventful enough at the best of times without you grabbing people’s attention with any garish or overly bold outfit choices, so polish up your act with a selection of refined items from the Mainline Menswear range. A bow tie, cuff links and a dress watch are all the best accessories when it comes to making a smart impression.
Some people wear a suit at all times during their working week so a staff Christmas party is an opportunity to wear something casual, but if it’s a sit down meal or drinks in an up-market bar you are going to be left feeling concious about being either under or over-dressed.
Nothing bridges the smart casual divide better than an open neck shirt and blazer combination- especially if you avoid the standard black and white co-ordination. A pair of brogues will be suitable for any smart or casual occasions and if you choose to top this off with a slim dark pair of jeans you are surely on to a winner.
It often takes a bit of jovial spirit- or large amounts of alcohol- to put up with spending prolonged amounts of time with relatives over the Christmas period, but nothing improves the mood better than a good old festive jumper like the one Ralph Lauren have released this year. Look out for any winter woollies with the Fair Isle knit and you should be sorted.
Friendly Get Together
Spending time with friends over the festive period is the real time to relax and let ones hair down and we all want to look sharp for the big occasions such as new years eve when the champagne glasses come out. Whether its Oliver Sweeney’s footwear, Ralph Lauren’s shirts or Fred Perry’s polos, we have all the names you need to stay a cut above the rest- the only thing we can’t help you with is that weary head the morning after.
