Before you know it, you’ll be invited to more holiday parties than there are days in a week.

Your avo-on-toast catch ups will become evening soirees and any morning gym sessions will be hindered by the 34 mojitos you had the night before. Things could be worse.

But because of your new status as a social butterfly, you’re going to need some new (and appropriate) looks for said evening events, cue our top four…


Nailing smart casual can be difficult but it’s always better to be a little overdressed than look like a total slob. Pair this Low Brand double-breasted camel blazer with a shirt or roll neck and some well fitting black trousers, finish with fresh white sneakers.


Just because it’s a holiday party doesn’t immediately call for a shirt, instead wrap up in layer of beautifully soft knitwear and finish with some great leather boots.


If the occasion calls for it, go all out with a white tuxedo jacket and some slick patent dress shoes. Do as Tom Ford does and keep the jacket undone at all times, it’s especially flattering on the figure.


Take this seasons styling tips and head for the revival of the seventies with checked blazers and geometric knitwear. Finish with simple gold aviators.
