WHAT TO WEAR: FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON

11.12.15

When office Christmas parties have been and gone, the period in-between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day throws up a new set of sartorial challenges, here we explain how to achieve sartorial finesse this festive season and there's not a novelty jumper in sight.

NEW YEAR'S DAY

One of the rites so integral to New Year's Day is talking leisurely strolls around the countryside. Leave anything big, baggy and shapeless at home and instead opt for the pieces that combine warmth with serious sartorial clout. A checked overcoat paired with monochrome pieces will offer instant impact when walking through the country, referencing classic heritage design while adding a modern twist.

CHRISTMAS DAY

How to dress on Christmas day with a dash of festivity while steering clear of novelty? Opt for a cable knit rollneck jumper which nods to winter tradition without feeling outlandishly kitsch. Illustrating this, the Jefferson navy jumper can be paired with muted tones (read: black, grey and brown) for a look that clearly references Christmastime, but simultaneously looks effortlessly stylish.

NEW YEAR'S EVE

The very last formal occasion before the year’s close, New Year’s Eve is rife with possibilities for the months ahead. When it comes to your wardrobe, make sure that you start the year as you mean to go on. New Year's Eve is the perfect occasion to try a printed shirt to add interest to your look. If you're unsure of how to wear yours ground the look by pairing with a black suit.
