Its Party Time!
Christmas and New Years Eve will soon be upon us, which usually means that the party season is now in full swing and its not just the ladies that say that old age question (what on earth am I going to wear?!?).
Whether you’re invited to a Christmas Works party or a festive charity ball. or even if you just want to celebrate Christmas and New Year with your nearest and dearest, you should always make sure that the clothes you decide to wear fit you properly and are suitable for the occasion.
There is always an awful lot of focus at this time of year to look your best and to dress well, especially as the invites are pouring in to attend formal black tie events.
The best way to make an impact this winter is to add a bit of sparkle to your wardrobe. Now I am not talking full on sequins and glitter here! Just a subtle hint of gold or silver shimmer along with the classic black dinner suit.
Here are 3 different ways to achieve this key look for everyone, no matter what your budget and how pushed for time you are.
If you want the ultimate in style and sophistication, having a bespoke dinner suit made for you is by far the best way to go, and to be in keeping with the party season Harrison’s of Edinburgh have a range of cloths with a 24 Carat Gold or a Pure Platinum Pinstripe which will defiantly make an impact. A less expensive option but equally as impressive is Scabal’s special editions formal range of cloths (which have a slight glitter and a touch of sparkle). Yes, they’re not quite the real deal but they do have an understated glitz and a certain razzmatazz feel to them.
If you still want to look the part but are planning to spend more at the bar then you are on your suit, then another option would be to hire an evening suit and the accessories as part of a one off hire package (to keep the costs down). We have a large selection of formal suits to hire, and with us offering an inclusive alteration service……you can still achieve a well balanced, streamlined look that James Bond himself would be proud of!
If your event is a little bit more informal and doesn’t quite require the full works, it’s still no excuse to not make an effort. You can still showcase your sense of style with some understated (but effective) accessories.
Just by adding a dazzling pair of cufflinks or the right neckwear can make a huge difference. It is so important to pay attention to what works well with what you choose to wear as a bad choice in accessories can totally undermine the whole outfit.
As its Christmas, my advice is to go for it and dare to be different!
