Christmas styling tips
The Christmas holidays are just around the corner – and so is one of the year’s most enjoyable tours de force. When else do you get to indulge in a dozen “business” brunches, lunches and dinners just to exchange season’s greetings? It’s a tough job, sure, but someone’s got to do it. And if you want to do it well, make sure you’re dressed appropriately. Here at The Savile Club, we believe a smart, contemporary tailored suit is of paramount importance.
Do you miss the good old days? Don’t worry – we’re not recommending a woolly sweater with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer plastered across the front, but rather a traditional made-to-measure two-piece. It’s the winning choice – it’s never going to be too smart or too casual. So go for an impeccable, strictly bespoke suit with the right accessories and customised details, such as a pair of cufflinks and maybe a little old pocket watch. As for colours, we recommend dark blue or gray, the latter being one of the best choices to give your Christmas look a modern original twist.
Can’t resist the urge to be a dandy even during family get-togethers? No problem – a waistcoat is just the accessory you need, now that it’s no longer relegated to weddings. Your three-piece suit should include a jacket, a matching waistcoat and a pair of trousers, as well as a slim tie you can wear with elegant irony.
You’re dead set on being dressed up to the nines. Who can blame you? It’s always better during the holidays than at a business meeting on the morning of January 2nd. A double-breasted jacket can be a great choice at any time of the day to ensure you look like a perfect contemporary gentleman. If you want to tone things down a little, slip on a pair of moccasins.
Are you a bit of a daredevil? Then try an unmatched two-piece suit – it’s no longer just for business meetings. In fact, unmatched two-piece suits can be smart and carefree at the same time. As the name suggests, this type of suit consists of a jacket and trousers with different colours and patterns that still mesh well. Don’t be afraid to go for a pinstripe jacket, as long as you don’t match it with grey trousers; bright green velvet is a far better idea. Feel free to try out new things but always make sure you’re consistently stylish.
And now, of course, it’s time to talk about tuxedos – classy, red-carpet worthy tuxedos. Is a tuxedo a good idea for a Christmas party? Well, it’s up to you. First and foremost, a top-tier tuxedo doesn’t just call for proper posture and class – it requires the almost unique ability to bring out our most daring and histrionic part, the one we keep hidden most of the time under our everyday personality. If you feel like playing your best part – yourself, that is – then slip into that tuxedo and show up at the party without a care in the world. Worst-case scenario, you can always whip out your trusty reindeer sweater.
