- Not so official get together after working hours
Men are social animals and never miss a chance to meet and greet with office friends over drinks or Christmas dinners. Casual apparel without being over the top is the right option for going out in a non-formal restaurant.
A corduroy is a classic option for winter wardrobe which is in vogue. It will easily merge before and after working hours look. Cropped trousers are an alternative to full-fledged formal trousers. Men can get creative and add interesting socks and sharp shoes to team up with these trousers. Plaid pants are a good option for guys who like to show their edgy style while staying subtle.
You have to come out of your comfort zone, go through the current trends. Then try the clothes; don’t skip that step because new cut & design is not for everyone. Play with seasonal colors, patterns, prints and give it a personal touch to look exotic.
- Going out with friends look
We can be ourselves among homies but please don’t even try to touch your hoodie or pullover with denim. You have to look special in this festive season no matter if you’re hanging out with your boys. For guys who like to keep it simple yet stylish can either choose Parka/Anorak coat, we will recommend it for athletic body type for others Military jacket with flannels or sweater is a good choice.
A leather biker jacket is our all-time beloved pick for an unfussy outing with lads. This piece of cloth is super precious; if you don’t possess one then you have to buy it immediately. Every famous actor has donned this jacket at some point in his career. Choose the right cut, fitting and design depending on your age and build.
Winter is the perfect time to experiment with various pant designs and fabrics. We would suggest camel traveler pants and moleskin pants but go beyond repetitive texture and shade and pair it with a jacket.
If you can’t do without your denim then young men with fine legs should wear slim fit in black or indigo color. Invest in branded distress jeans, DIY is not everyone’s cup of tea. Again we would advise you to not be lazy, go try first and then decide whether you want to buy it or not. There are many varieties in the market to choose from, seek new colors, cuts and fabric. Darker tones can be mixed and matched with a wide variety of palettes. The evergreen rule is to spend well on denim it pays off in the long run and 4-5 is enough for your entire clothing.
- Family get-together look
Home is as warm as wool and winter aren’t complete without woolen clothes. Comfort is the utmost priority to spend quality time with dear family. So, keep in mind to choose a material which gives you extra space to hog on mom’s delicious food.
Wool pants are super cozy which makes it a perfect pair for Christmas holiday at home. But be careful while choosing the right shoes to pair with these pants. You can try boots, sneakers, chukkas or dress shoes and color coordinate it with your pants. Before you leave for an event, don’t be shy to have a glance of yourself in the mirror, no one else can give honest feedback to you than yourself.
Winter is incomplete without knitted sweater collection, out of all the collections; Fair Isle is the sweater for this festive season. Some may love it while others might not for its pattern. Cable knit sweater with pants is the ultimate look for a family get-together. Turtle/roll neck is our personal favorite for keeping us extra warm without adding a muffler. You can also try crewneck with a shirt, quarter zip for an elegant look, V-neck looks best with a T-shirt, fisherman, and shawl-collar are also quite suitable options to keep in mind.
- Winter dinner date look
What you wear on a dinner date can make or break the situation. Even if you know your date since ages this doesn’t give you the liberty to look shabby and mind you the girl will leave no stone unturned for her 100th date as well.
It is very important to plan your outfit in advance based on where you’re going, consider the venue because the atmosphere matters. Girls don’t expect you to look Hrithik Roshan still they look forward to meeting a guy with decent dressing sense.
We agree that dressing up for the summer dinner date is lighter than the winter one. No worries, we’ll guide you on how to look your best on a chilly night. Tailored blazer or dress down suit with attention to fitting is the first pick for a special dinner night. If you’re heading straight after office to meet up then you may swap the formal shirt for a knitted polo or roll neck.
If you’re going out for a casual dinner with drinks and have time to change after working hours then make an effort to look proper with trousers along with a statement jacket. A bomber or biker jacket can be clubbed with patterned trousers or woolen chinos for a relaxed evening. A jacket can be switched with a cable knit jumper for a subtle look.
And yes, our last advice would be to make the table reservation beforehand to avoid an uncomfortable situation.
- Traveler look for adventure seekers
This style is for men who are outdoorsy and plans to celebrate this New Year climbing the mountain or exploring a new place. A traveler doesn’t go out to impress anyone; he is out to experience life on his terms. Therefore, he is careless yet stylish because he doesn’t follow any set of fashion rules.
Travelers can wear anything and nobody can judge them. Denim should be their comfort dress; in fact, the overall denim look is in for autumn/winter 2019. Layer your over-sized denim jacket with another jacket of different texture. Guys with athletic physiques should try a jacket-over-jacket trend. Men on the heavier side should stick to a single durable layer. Fleece coats over shrugs are another option for cold temperatures.
Scarves are evergreen accessory and recommended by style pundits for every winter. Hikers can rely on gigantic scarves on any given day for its warmth and you should try crazy colors to suit your mood. Bomber jacket over a sweatshirt is a practical choice to cover your head while traveling. This can be worn with winter joggers and sneakers, boots or trekking shoes.
