Attending a New Year party? Here are some ideas to look your best

The end of an year brings with it celebrations and festivities to mark the passage of time and the anticipation of a new year. Standing out in a season of soirées calls for elaborate efforts where the dress code is one delight we all wait for. Choosing a perfect outfit for any party can be tricky and challenging. You don’t want to be overdressed or under-dressed. But here are some go-to looks for the perfect party look:

• Pull off casual blazers: A blazer’s second name must surely be versatility. It adds a slick look to your overall playful party attire: you may as well be dressed in a printed t-shirt and a pair of washed denim; or it could be a floral shirt teamed up with dark trousers. Blazers come in various colours and patterns that add finesse to your outfit. You could opt for solid geometric t-shirts, too, with trims to achieve an effortless, spontaneous style!

• Base it up with a t-shirt: Spark up your candid look at the celebrations with glittering, dark and royal shades of blue and beige. Play along with some fun coloured trousers, and everyone at the party will know who the most fashionable guy is. We’d always recommend v-neck t-shirts over crew neck t-shirts while layering up with blazers or jackets. A v-neck does a great job of framing the natural shape of your face and it goes brilliantly with the collar of the blazer. It is not about getting all buttoned-up but looking sporty & vibrant.

• Bag on the denims: Denims lend an effortlessly cool vibe and let you look expressive and radiant. While teaming up with zipper jackets, there are no rules to pick the right denims. Go for raw jeans or pick a distressed pair of jeans to add an interesting twist to your look. Hit the dance floor with dark ripped denims and a t-shirt in a street art print. You can choose any kind of sneaker.

• Don leather jackets: Jackets are a clothing staple for any man. Whether you like to dress simple and easy-going, or trendy and hipster, there’s something for everyone. This unpredictable winter doesn’t have to play spoilsport with your style. If you want a spiffy and dapper look, faux leather jackets are the way to go. Earn more compliments by wearing it with a t-shirt and a slim-fit jeans. You can even adopt a sophisticated look for the party — simply layer the jacket with a white button-down shirt, along with dark trousers and brogues.

• Layer it up with knits: Don’t we all love the niche look layers add? Pick a solid coloured & knitted pullover to wear under your blazer or over a t-shirt. They are lightweight and warm; also, there are many coloured options to fulfil every man’s style desires.

• Match with perfect accessories: Accessories add nuances to your look. This petite detailing compliments your look with subtlety and elegance. A shoe is a reflector of your style and personality! It is the key ingredient in every gentleman’s style. Put your best foot forward with casual shoes!
