The festive season is upon us and with it comes dinners, soirees, after-work gatherings and an assortment of other evening affairs. Whether your itinerary is chock-full or you’ve got room to manoeuvre, these are the versatile shirt styles you need for every occasion.
1. For The Office Party
Heading to an after-work party with your coworkers can be challenging – especially if you’re dressed like a banker. A pristine slim-fit white shirt will get you through any evening affair. Just loosen your top button.
2. Going on Date Night
If you’ve been running errands or catching up with the end-of-the-year reports, and the thought of your impending date slipped your mind, a fitted 100% cotton shirt will save the day. Freshen up with a splash of cologne.
3. For the Brunch King
When choosing shirts solely for weekend brunches, always remember to shop smart. A brunch shirt can also suit your work life – just look at this striped number. It works with both formal attire and chino shorts. Roll up your sleeves for an extra-casual look.
4. Ready for Dinner
There’s something about checks and plaid that perfectly complement all hours of the festive season. A darker shade provides more versatility. Look for a regular fit shirt for smart casual occasions, which you can layer with a dark jacket and brogues for a night out.
To Ring in the New Year
Celebrate the new year with the right kind of vibe. Mustard yellow provides a pop of colour that is both optimistic and invigorating. Pair it with a grey jacket and formal trousers for work and sans jacket for that New Year party.
