We know that the phrase ‘black tie: optional’ can evoke a sense of dread during the party season but but TV personality Kem Cetinay is here to help you decipher the dress code whether it’s the work party, a winter wedding or those annual family festivities.
How To Style Suits For Party Season
What better way to let loose and celebrate your wins this year than in our most luxe-look pieces, guaranteed to get you looking and feeling your best. First on the agenda? Introducing our velvet suit jacket and matching suit trouser.
Nothing says winter opulence like velvet, the thick fabric protects you from the chillier temperatures and the unique texture, long associated with wealth and high status is sure to get people talking (and brushing shoulders). Style with a crisp white button-down shirt and bowtie for a cheeky finishing touch and top off with smart black brogues that are sure to sparkle under that disco ball!
If your RSVP doesn’t require a matching suit, our velvet bomber jacket still evokes opulence but with an ‘off-duty’ feel. Keep the look lavish by teaming with simple black basics or Kem’s infamous crew neck tees and a pair of black tailored trousers. Head in-store ASAP to secure these and our other smart-casual party season picks.
Leopard Print Party Outfit Inspiration
Punchy, playful prints are the easiest way to add a bit of personality to an otherwise formal look and this season it’s all eyes on leopard print. Ensure that you make a scene in the best way possible as enter the room in our leopard print blazer. Featuring exaggerated satin lapels and a silver and black print, keep your shirt and suit trousers simple and let your top half do the talking for maximum impact.
Polished party looks CAN go hand in hand with vivacious prints as demonstrated by Kem’s all black outfit featuring our leopard print button down shirt. What appears to be a top-to-toe all-black outfit is transformed as soon as it catches the light thanks to the shirt’s satin texture and embossed print. Wear underneath our velvet suit or pair with our tux trouser for styling they’ll all want to steal.
