For a more casual affair, try pairing a warm knitted sweater with your favourite dress shirt or pair of pants. From classic wool blends, to contemporary shawl collars to a festive design, mix and match these sweaters for any holiday event. Wearing these sweaters with chinos are great for a more relaxed vibe or step-up your sweater game with a winter wool blend dress pant.

The festive season is the best time to bring out your favourite suit. Try shaking things up for your classic black suit and fearlessly try a warmer brown or blue tone. If you find yourself at a banquet hall or dressier occasion, a three-piece option with a matching vest will make heads turn. Personally, I have a spot for a man with a bowtie and this season they are the perfect festive accessories for any event. Ted Baker London has a great collection of bowties, ties and pocket squares to help finish your look.

Shirt & Ties
You can never go wrong with a classic shirt and tie. A printed dress shirt with a classic solid tie is a great way to look good without the need for a matching jacket. Switch up your classic solid dress shirt with a textured knit tie or modern print like the paisley print below. Remember: whenever you are swearing a shirt and tie, try and opt for a more tailored dress shirt that tucks in neatly to your pants with a classic leather belt.

One of the biggest fashion statements this season for men are found on the feet. Show your playful side by mixing patterns and prints that compliment the colour palette in your outfit. Don’t worry if they do not perfectly match, it’s all about finding colours and bring out certain aspects of your outfit and stand out from your look.

Finish off your look with a suave pair of brown leather shoes like the lace-up Olsen from Steve Madden or the Cambridge Double Monk strap shoes from Cole Haan.
