A bandhgala is the easiest way to gear up for any festive-themed event. Invest in a full-sleeved one or a sleeveless one, depending on your preference, and wear it over a simple band-collar (or mandarin-collar) shirt and chinos. This is as easy as it gets!
While a plain leather belt does pass muster, shift your sights to pieces that pack in a punch. Statement belts punctuate the simplest of outfits and draw everyone’s eyes to your keenness for attention to detail.
If your go-to outfit for evening dos is always a sharp suit, pick a rich tie to add finesse to your ensemble. Give your solid coloured ties a rest and sport a subtly printed one. In fact, if you’re really feeling the festive cheer, you can also experiment with a metallic paisley tie in hues of silver or copper and even polka-dotted ties in rich browns.
If you pick something subtle and understated for work each day, try a perfume that’s slightly more pronounced. Experiment with different notes to find one that truly suits the festive mood. We’re recommending a spicy fragrance with fresh notes that will resonate with the festive cheer.
Dressing for a festive occasion is all about going the extra mile and if there’s one pet peeve that we have, it is wearing shoes that look more suited to a boardroom than a cards party. As you add and subtract things from your outfit, be sure to pick a pair of textured shoes to match. All you have to do is ensure that your belt and shoes aren’t starkly different from each other.
