The Season of Festivities is getting closer and it is important for the Gentleman to not show up unprepared, but with good taste and elegance in the upcoming formal occasions. Christmas and New Year’s Eve require appropriate look, that’s why it’s important to know which is the more appropriate jacket or the best pair of shoes to be kept ready for any event.
For the most intrepid and dandy Modern Gentleman, the smooth Velvet blazer is a real must-have of the Season. Versatile and with character, the velvet jacket must be chosen with care and should have a pretty slim fit. As for the color, you can choose it in black, blue or burgundy, but also experiment with bolder colors like emerald green or deep purple.
Inevitable in the male wardrobe: the Tuxedo. During this period, it can happen to receive numerous invitations to exclusive party and elegant dinners, which is why owning a sophisticated Tuxedo is critical. If you don’t already have one in your closet, the advice is to invest time and money in the selection of the ideal model of Tuxedo: will last forever and will be suitable for every situation. Opt for black is undoubtedly a wise choice, even the blue may lend itself to different occasions, but not to the most formal. The silhouette of the perfect Tuxedo is slim, perfect when paired with a pair of patent leather shoes, a white shirt with cufflinks and a narrow tie.
Suits, you know, are synonymous of extreme elegance, but for the Festive Season you can think of a different look, which includes the use of Bow Tie. An accessory difficult to wear and match, the Bow Tie is not good for all, but properly chosen will not go unnoticed. Perfect to celebrate the last night of the year with elegance and a touch of irony.
Indispensable to be combined with the formal outfits, it’s an elegant coat. You can opt for a long coat with a smooth and minimal silhouette, which can be even more special with a beautiful silk scarf. A viable alternative, in the case of very low temperatures, is represented by the windbreaker jacket, but must be in a dark shade and with no cap, logos or obvious sporty details.
Refined and elegant, they can’t be miss in the Gentleman’s wardrobe: a pair of black patent shoes. Possibly with an elegant and thin silhouette, the dress shoes are most suitable accessory to combine with a suit. Perfect even in their most modern models, such as Derby, Monk Straps or Oxford, with a smart and contemporary appeal. If your shoes aren’t new, it’s important to remember to revive all their glory, by cleaning and polishing them with a cleaning fluid. Avoid bold combinations with socks, opting instead for a classic knee-high black socks.
