Christmas is the perfect season to experiment with texture and colour and what better way to liven things up than with a touch of sparkle? Whether it’s a contrast collar on a Brooks Brothers shirt or a jacket from BOSS, subtle detailing is all he needs to embrace the party spirit. A classic black roll neck from the likes of Montezemolo pairs brilliantly with shimmery accents, while a dress shirt of Carlo Pignatelli is another easy way to instantly uplift your eveningwear. Let your luxe side shine through with metallic tones or keep things unmistakably festive with Christmassy hues of green and red.
When it comes to Christmas partywear for him, only shoes that were made for dancing will do. At Christmastime this means opting for tried and tested shapes with everlasting appeal. Think Brogues, loafers and dress shoes – all of which sit beautifully under tailored suits. Polished leathers and patent styles are ideal for injecting an element of shine, while luxe suedes will keep you comfy all night long. Baldinini, Pollini and Corso Roma are great places to seek out smarter shoe styles for him. Add a sparkly sock into the mix for a subtle (but sure-fire) way to inject a little festive cheer.
From designer watches and belts, to bracelets and cufflinks, Christmas brings no shortage of mens’ accessories to covet. Keep your party look timeless with a classic watch, complete with leather strap from Fossil, or draw attention to your hands with a stylish signet ring from Fossil’s latest menswear lines. Belts are another opportunity to make a statement, so opt for buckles that draw in the eye. Finish with a slimline Trussardi wallet, that slips easily inside tailored trousers.
