PREPARE TO PARTY
Scroll on for this season's most essential party looks.
With AW12’s party season on the horizon, the style options are endless for the sartorial gent this year. It’s time to reach for a palette of rich browns, deep electric blues and lighter rose hues. The look is classic with a modern edge; perfect for making a suave entrance to any events you have planned.
Once the last few fireworks have been sent through the sky on Bonfire Night, everyone’s attention turns to the party season. From Christmas parties to New Years Eve, this truly is the time to sharpen up and look your best.
The general mood for party wear this season is dark and refined; less in-your-face than previous years. The trick is to draw inspiration from looking back in time, while keeping another eye directly on what’s happening right now.
A retro textured suit in a warm brown shade for instance is the perfect nod to the past, while texture and colour are key tailoring trends for AW12.
For the more adventurous, go fully back to basics and opt for a vintage-inspired overcoat in a rose pink hue. A timeless design like this will hark back to simpler days gone by; perfect for layering over a tailored suit.
When it comes to picking a blazer this season, rose is once again the perfect choice from the party palette. You’ll make a stylish entrance to any event in the uplifting hue that is completely of the moment.
If you’re after something a little more understated, sophistication is key to the AW12 party season. A dark single-breasted suit, shirt, tie and pocket square will convey an elegant appeal that exudes chic style.
Whatever your year’s been like, there’s no denying that 2012 has been an eventful one. From the Queen’s Jubilee to the Olympic Games, there’s never been a better time to celebrate; which is exactly how the year should be brought to an end.
Here’s to a party season and New Year ahead filled with enjoyment... and impeccable style.
