Holiday Party Duds for Guys

Dec 13, 2012

Dressing for school can be tough enough. Dressing for the holidays can be downright stressful! Here are some awesome holiday party duds you can feel confident stepping out in whether you're heading over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house or stepping out for an epic holiday party with all the trimmings.

Dressed Down

For a party in someone's basement or any casual holiday party, a sweater over jeans is a great look. An ombre sweater, like the one shown in the gallery above, looks very cool over a button-down shirt and a nice pair of dark or colored jeans, and it's considered a holiday look because it's not something you'd wear every day. We like sweaters with a collar for holiday style, or an open v-neck with a bow-tie or skinny tie underneath look great, too. As for the word "ombre" in the first sentence... it's not a misspelling of "hombre" from Spanish class... Ombre ist the way the shirt is dyed with a blend from one color to another -- very hot in 2012. Top it off with a leather jacket and you're seriously styling!

Also, note that when we say "jeans" and we're talking about holiday party clothes, we don't mean everyday jeans. Dress jeans shouldn't have worn out knees, frayed hems or stretched out pockets, and they are usually in a solid dark color. 

Dress to impress

For a party with a little more flair you'll either have to don a tie, a jacket or both. A blazer over a collarless shirt -- even a crisp dark t-shirt -- is a great fashion choice. For colder weather, wear a blazer over a dark turtleneck for a mysterious, sophisticated look. 

Wearing a tie? A collar is a must. Skinny ties are in this season, as are plaid bow ties. They're not just for Sunday school, Glee cast members or Bill Nye the Science Guy. Try it on -- you'll look sharp!

Dress to the nines

The expression "dressed to the nines" means looking your best. We're talking ultra-formal tuxedo wear or a suit and tie. Although styles change, suits and tuxedos stay pretty much the same from year to year. It's the accents that make you stand out -- a pocket handkerchief that matches your tie, a silk scarf, classy wing-tipped shoes and a great smile, for example.

@country_girl19, I agree with Athena. She might not realize how she's making you feel and it's best to talk to her about it, if not it could get worse. If nothing changes after talking with her, then I think you should rethink things. @WatermelonCurlz, I don't really think you should hang around them that much. They don't listen to you or seem to really care about the fact that you've talked about getting different friends. I'm not saying to just cut them off all together, but I wouldn't stray from the idea of slowly distancing yourself.

And they know that, so they talk about it purposely around me. Omg, ikr.When I ask to talk about something else the ignore me. So I say, I'm going to go find real friends, and they say, OK, like me care. And that's all they want to talk about, at recess, lunch, secretly in class, you name it thye do it. How do I get them to stop?   You should probably just stop talking to them and stuff. don't sit by them at lunch and don't hang out with them at recess. they sound like they are not good friends. if it gets worse, just tell your parents if they don't already know. idk how good i am at advise. hope this helped.  ~JazzyRox

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D
