Holiday Party Looks for Boys

The holiday season means that everyone gets to dress up and look sharp, but you want to look cool as well  (and not just because it’s winter). Check out these party looks for boys to get some ideas on how to look handsome for the holidays at your next get-together.

Men's Holiday OutfitThis holiday season turn geek-chic into mistletoe magic with these helpful holiday hints!
 

Check it Out!

Nothing says holiday festivities more than a fresh check patterned collared shirt. Look stylish while channelling that snowy cabin feel with a bold plaid or small gingham check. Any color can work, but dark red is the most festive and looks great on any guy.

Sweaters, Cardigans and Vests

Layering is the key when it comes to winter wear, so slip on a cable knit cardigan, v-neck sweater or vest in a plain block color like grey, black, midnight blue or camel if you’re going with a checkered shirt. If you opt to use a plain white shirt, have fun with your cardigan by choosing something striped or winter patterned!

Dress Pants vs. Denim

We know, it’s hard to go one day without your jeans. They’re the most comfortable thing you own, but guess what? Jeans can look dressed up as well. As long as you choose a dark wash, clean looking denim can look just as good with your dress-up duds as a pair of dress pants. If you like changing it up though, pull those dress pants off the rack for a polished party look.

Sharp Shoes

You can get away with sneakers if they aren’t worn out or neon, but to be on the safe side why not try out a pair of lace-up dress shoes, like an awesome oxford or classic brogue.

OxfordsThese two-tone oxford shoes complete your Christmas party look, $78.00 at Urban Outfitters
 

What the Neck?

If you just want to accent your outfit (and keep warm, of course) add a simple scarf. Checked, striped, solid colors, chunky or skinny, a scarf is the perfect way to complete a holiday look. If you feel like dressing up that extra bit though, try a tie! They aren’t the easiest to get on, but a great, solid coloured tie always looks good and will take your look to the next level.

The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there. that's a good point.
