Over the next week or so millions of people up and down the country will be stressing about, not making a fool of themselves this year, not to drink too much, where the actual venue is, how will they get home and most importantly what will they wear to this year’s Christmas Party !!!!! A tradition as old as Good St. Nick himself.
However, there are a couple of rules you need to be aware of when it comes to dressing for this annual event, no not flirting with your Boss’s wife and no, we really don’t need to mention a photocopier ! Let’s keep this Sartorial.
We sort the wise words of a couple of experts on menswear to ask for their advise on dressing for an outing of this nature.
“Leave the sparkle to the Christmas tree.. Less is more! Christmas is not an excuse to turn the ‘novelty’ on its better to stay chic, forget it’s Christmas and just approach it in the same way you would any evening social gathering with friends.”
Adrian Clark, ShortList – Style Director
