01 THE HERO SUIT
This one’s a forever trend. With the ability to work hard at elegant evening events and relaxed gatherings alike, the hero suit is a sartorial staple. This season, find perfectly proportioned classics at BOSS or Armani for up to 70% less, and be sure to look out for luxurious fabrics and divine detailing.
Christmas is a traditional affair, and this season’s hero suit is no different. Single-breasted blazers and slim-fit tailored trousers take centre stage, making dressing up or down a breeze. Pair with a fine-knit roll neck and brogues for a look that masters any smart-casual brief, or with a crisp white shirt and loafers for timeless elegance. For a softer take, swap out black for a dark navy hue.
02 CHRISTMAS CARAMELS
Soft caramels are very much in style this festive season. Look to Tommy Hilfiger and Polo Ralph Lauren for inspiration on how to give your festive party wardrobe the perfect take on tawny.
With key pieces in caramel coloured corduroy, suede and leather, you can dial up your festive look by playing with texture. The ‘70s dominated the catwalks this season, so why not let it inspire your partywear too? Pair a patterned shirt or roll neck with a boxy brown leather jacket and loafers for a look that’s just the right amount of retro.
03 THE WINTER WOOL COAT
Christmas calls for looking stylish and beating the chill, so it’s a good thing this season’s wool coat trend lets you do both.
BOSS and Tommy Hilfiger prove that there’s nothing quite like wool to keep you warm in the winter. Whether you’re ringing in the season with colleagues after work or heading out to dinner with friends, long-line silhouettes and oversized fits work well over any party look. Effortlessly sophisticated and versatile, you can flex the trend in an earthy brown, slate grey or classic black variety from Designer Outlet Parndorf. And to complete the outfit? Add a playful touch with a patterned wool scarf or opt for a pair of leather gloves to keep you warm while your taxi arrives.
