#OOTD: Wear This Sharp Outfit To Your Holiday Party

Alright, my friends — ready to commence the search for what to wear to a holiday party? Maybe you’ve already kicked off the season in earnest, but when it comes to holiday cocktails, office parties and more formal affairs … it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Right? Right. That means we’re focused on easily wearable, classic items that can go from the office to the bar with ease. You might already own some of these pieces, or they might be making their way onto your holiday wish list, but rest assured… you’re going to look great. We’re starting with a classic herringbone blazer, then adding pieces like a tailored white dress shirt and stylish wool trousers — building blocks of many a winter ensemble. And when the time comes to take on the snow and slush? Sharp, weather-ready Hudson Shoes Chelsea boots are your best bet. I won’t spoil the fun, though. You can find the full #OOTD below! Let me know what you think in the comments, and enjoy the season!

We’ve got the goods when it comes to sharp, tailored dressing for the season.

The Blazer: Ledbury Lochaven Herringbone Jacket, $444.98 — If you need a stylish herringbone blazer for winter, the splurge-worthy Lochaven Herringbone Jacket from Ledbury is the one to buy.

 Not Pictured: Abercrombie & Fitch Italian Wool Topcoat, $150 (When On-Sale) — The topcoat is ultimately optional in this look, particularly if there’s no snow on the ground yet (that’s where the American Trench scarf comes into play). But if you want a great-looking, affordable topcoat? Buy one from Abercrombie & Fitch.

The Dress Shirt: Taylor Stitch The Hyde in White Royal Oxford, $98 — As we’ve said before, Taylor Stitch really can do no wrong — that goes for a tailored men’s dress shirt like the Hyde in White Royal Oxford.

The Tie: Neck & Tie Co. Chambray Nutmeg Tie, $46 — Nod toward the season without going overboard with this finely crafted Neck & Tie Co. piece — the nutmeg color is smooth and winter-friendly (just like your favorite bourbon).
The Trousers: Taylor Stitch The Telegraph Trouser in Navy Donegal, $178 — We turn yet again to richly crafted menswear from Taylor Stitch — the Navy Donegal Telegraph Trousers are simply excellent.

The Boots: Hudson Shoes Wynford Chelsea Boots, $230 — When winter weather hits, you want to get around with functionality and fashion in mind — stylish Chelsea boots from Hudson Shoes are a huge help.

The Watch: About Vintage 1815 Chronograph, $349 — There are everyday watches, and then there’s the stylish dress watch you need for your holiday party. The About Vintage 815 Chronograph is that watch.

The Socks: American Trench Sawtooth Argyle Socks, $29.50  — We’ve talked on the blog in the past about how choosing the right pair of socks makes a big difference — the Sawtooth Argyle Socks from  American Trench toe the line (pun intended) between dressy and comfortable style.
 The Scarf: American Trench Navy Cashmere Scarf, $180 — We’re closing things out on a high note with classic accessories from American Trench — the brand’s Navy Cashmere Scarf is simply top-of-the-line.

While I can’t speak for the quality of the party or parties you might be attending, I can vouch for the fact that if you throw on something like the Lochaven Herringbone Jacket, you’re going to be off to a truly great start. Supplementing a classic herringbone blazer with other essentials — like what just might be the perfect white dress shirt — is always a smart move, while a handsome Neck & Tie Co. tie nods toward the season just enough. The Navy Donegal Telegraph Trousers are a job VERY well-done by our pals at Taylor Stitch, and they should sit just right when worn with the Hudson Shoes Wynford Chelsea Boots. On the accessories front, keeping your socks and scarf stylish and comfortable are critical, so the Navy Cashmere Scarf and Sawtooth Argyle Socks from American Trench  are absolutely ready for your holiday party. I’ll close here by saying that you should absolutely splurge on the About Vintage 815 Chronograph for this occasion (and plenty of other dressy situations). Bring along a favorite spirit for your host (or boss), and enjoy the evening in style. Cheers!

Thanks for reading,
