Bringing the holiday cheer through your wardrobe. It’s November and in just a few weeks it will be Christmas time. No matter where you are, and at what party you’ll have to take part because Christmas season is always a symbol of elegance, a time in which every man can express his essence of gentleman and feel important.
Festive clothes are something we think all men should enjoy. Around the holiday filled season, if you want to dress sharp yet bright for a Christmas party or New Year’s Eve, you can do that without a lot of effort, but with a lot of impact. The best way to show off your holiday style is to make sure your clothes fit will, whether to only wear the suit a few times or suit are part of your everyday wardrobe, a custom tailored suit will make a statement. And there is no better time to splurge on yourself than the holidays.
Obtaining a subtle, yet powerful holiday look that will be memorable years to come is simple and can be achieved by anyone. To obtain this look, Michael Sahi has put together some tips anyone can use. We encourage you to take what fits you and your style, and not to consider these are unbreakable rules.
In essence, we want you to wear the same things you normally wear, it is unnecessary to break or leave your style. The trick is to add a holiday twist to it. A holiday twist, as we like to put it, is something that says “winter holidays” without spelling it out or representing it in a obvious form, such as a big print of a Christmas tree or Santa.
Identifying subtle motifs
How to identify holiday motifs that are not too obvious? It is quite simple, actually. We always say that beauty is everywhere and that you can find your inspiration not just in runway shows and stores. Look around yourself and see what the surroundings are at this time of year. Go beyond the shapes and see what colors, patterns, types of shine and textures appear. You will notice that you can turn the holiday decor into clothes very easily. Having a few shirts custom tailored can ensure your style vision comes to life.
Colors, textures, shine
In terms of colors, you will probably identify not only green and red. These two colors, even though they are individually very bright and strong, go well together, as they are complimentary colors (meaning they are on opposite sides of the color spectrum) and therefore can be matched well. Did you think the holidays were poorly matched? If you aren’t a fan of red and green together, Michael’s Custom Clothes can help you put together a holiday color palette you will be proud to wear.
Other things you might notice around you are the wonderful patterns that seem to emerge this time of year. From checkers to beige drawings, you will see it all. Try to incorporate these as well. If you don’t want to go too obvious, you can simply wear a pocket square with a holiday staple.
1) Wear a colorful tuxedo or jacket
We are huge fans of colorful tuxedos. They are holiday-appropriate, and make a great visual impact. While generally a tuxedo is black, a colorful one will keep the elegant and formal tone, but it will express a lot of cheer and can be worn at a Christmas party or on New Year’s Eve. Of course, you don’t necessarily need to wear a tuxedo, you can also take your regular blazer or jacket to the next level.
A tuxedo can be special not only in terms of color, but also in terms of fabric: here is a wonderful green velvet tuxedo, perfect for a New Year’s party.
2) Wear a vest
A vest is an appropriate piece for the holidays (and in general too). It’s functional, because it keeps you warm, but it is also very stylish, as it adds a layer to your outfit, creating visual interest. A festive vest can turn any outfit into a holiday outfit, so make sure you have those vests handy.
3) Wear accessories
Accessories are generally a great way to express who you are without having to spell it out to someone. Wear a tie clip, a watch or a pocket square to show your personality off, and why not give them a Christmas feel?
4) Shine your shoes
We encourage you to wear shiny shoes. While many men fear wearing them, show your courage this Christmas by putting on a fancy pair of shoes (the type of shoes – we’ll leave that up to you).
In conclusion, it is easy to be stylish around the holidays. Although holiday attire that isn’t too over the top may be hard to find, we at Michael’s Custom Clothes can take any shirt, suit, vest, or jacket and make it custom to your preference, whether you’re looking to go bold or just stay festive through the new year.
