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.

I'm wearing a plain gray t-shirt with pink-magenta shorts and my hair is tied back in the littlest messiest ponytail you've ever seen! I didn't even tie it with a hair tie, I tied it with my cloth headband! I'm recovering from a cough so that's why I'm so messy XD

I'm an only child so it really depends on things, they're not strict when it comes to most things. I can wear what I want unless you know, it's like, completely outta question. I can cuss and all, like say one or two "okay-cuss words" around them, just as long as it's not AT them. They're fine with spending money lol, as much as it takes. I don't really ask for stuff, but I get stuff for no reason sometimes. It can be a problem,  cuz I consider it throwing money down the drain. but I'm somewhat grateful. but my parents are also overprotective LOL so I can't go out too far on my own and stuff. "Watch out for weird boys, honey." All that craap, but I guess I can deal with it.
