The office party 


While dressing to impress is always crucial, at the office party, it's essential. You want to avoid looking like you've tried too hard, or even worse like you've made no effort at all. Opt for smart and simple pieces like a sharp shirt and neatly cut trousers, or a thick overshirt and chinos. Pair a smart coat with a knit jumper for ultimate casual cool. Don't feel like donning a smart coat? Opt for a leather jacket or a Harrington coat. 

The black tie do

When it comes to dressing for a black-tie event, we all want to be as dapper as Don Draper, but all the elements of dressing for fancy events can be a bit overwhelming. The key to dressing for a black-tie event is making sure your suit has a good fit. Find black-tie events all a bit too fussy? You can't go wrong with the classics, we recommend Barney Wool Blend Suit Jacket.

The dinner soiree


December is the month to impress, with invitations from everyone from friends to the in-laws. We recommend keeping dressing for these kinds of events classic and simple, and you can't go wrong with a good suit. Nothing feels as festive as getting all dressed up, and when you're looking this dapper you can't put a foot wrong. We recommend the Ferry Tailored Suit Jacket - a navy suit feels less formal than black, but not like you're under dressed. 

The house party

Ah, the house party, a staple of the festive season. Dressing for these events can be pretty subjective. New Year's Eve? You're going to want something on the fancy side, like a good shirt and a fun jacket. A standard Friday night gathering? Jeans and a jumper will see you through. But it's always good to have some staple pieces on hand for when the social calendar really starts to fill up. A classic pair of Levi's and an Oxford Shirt will always look good. Trust us.
