Like yesterday’s post, this look is all about taking holiday party style in a different direction. No colorful nods to the season, just clean and basic. Departing from the norm, especially in a holiday scenario, can draw a lot of attention. If you’re going to do it, make sure you draw the right kind of attention by doing it elegantly.
Same blazer as the previous look, completely different vibe. Though you know I love black denim as an “in-between” dress pant, there are some situations where it’s just not going to be formal enough. A pair of charcoal gray wool pants should be a wardrobe staple.
This may be the season of the turtleneck for me. I remember a time when more people wore them, but they seem to have lost their mainstream popularity somewhere along the line as the sweater of choice for stuffy, elbow-patched academics. Not so. A turtleneck is elegant and refined, especially in dark colors. I’d like to see it make a strong comeback.
The holidays are a great time to work patterns into an outfit. They don’t need to be big and bold. When you’re working monochromatically, subtlety rules the day.
Thanks for reading.
