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.

Hello! I'm in need of urgent advice. The guy I have a crush on and I were best friends around two years ago. Somebody told him that I like him, and now he avoids me like the plague... I really just want to be friends with him again even if he doesn't like me back. What should I do? I'm quite an awkward girl, and I can't make conversation for the life of me. We're going into seventh grade, and I haven't talked to him nor seen him all summer. Please help!

I totally feel the same way. The one guy I thought was interested friend-zoned me, so I've been kind of closed to relationships. One thing I've learned is not to jump into a relationship just because everyone else is. Just think, in 20 years they'll have all these bad memories of their many relationships, and you'll learn from their mistakes. Wanting to be in a relationship doesn't make you desperate either. You just feel a little left out. Trust me, I've been there. Don't feel alone. Being single, well, sucks, but don't worry, we've got your back, and I just know there's someone out there waiting to meet you.
