The best Christmas party outfits for men are usually more conservative, as Christmas is a time of year for family and reflection, not a time to make a statement through your unique, cutting-edge sense of style. So that tie with Christmas trees and atheism signs probably should stay in your closet and be worn not to your business Christmas party. However, less extreme wardrobe choices can also be a little confusing during the holiday season and looking like a square isn't good at any time, especially not to end the year. Check out some tips for the best Christmas part outfits for men.
A suit truly is good in just about any situation and this goes for a Christmas party ensemble for a man. It is warm in colder Christmas environments, especially with an overcoat, a hat and a scarf and it is formal enough for a nice Christmas party (with a tie) yet casual enough for a more relaxed Christmas party (without a tie). You can also mix up what shirt you wear under the suit jacket, be it a button up shirt which will lean more towards the dressy side or a long sleeved turtle neck, which verges on the more conservative, upper crust side. If you are having Christmas in a place that's not terribly cold, a nice t-shirt can work for this Christmas party outfit as well, allowing you to lose the suit coat easily and hit the dance floor, if one should arise.
Big woolen Christmas sweaters are perfectly acceptable for men to wear to parties at this time of year, making them look simply festive and cutely cheesy, not ironic and without a real sense of style (sorry hipsters). The more outrageous the Christmas sweater a man decides to wear to a Christmas party is directly proportional to the sense of humor the people at the party will have. In other words, if you are going to a Christmas party at a place where everyone will get drunk, listen to music really loud or at least be hip, then a wildly tacky Christmas sweater is perfect. However, if you are heading to a Christmas party where there will a piano, a lot of older women in conservative cocktail dresses and things like family, the subtler the Christmas sweater you wear the better (maybe just a red or green sweater).
A simple thing for men to wear to show they are in the holiday spirit is to wear basic Christmas colors to a Christmas party. These consist of red, green and white, though you probably shouldn't wear all of those in that order as you will run the risk of looking like the Italian or Mexican flags. But a red long-sleeved shirt and some dark green slacks, or green sweater with a red t-shirt under it will get the message across that you know what season it is and you're totally cool with supporting it, in the festive way. However, keep the kitschy articles of clothing to a minimum, namely the Santa hats and reindeer noses.
