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.

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.

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.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
