The casual cool one
Dress code a mystery? Wear this relaxed-fit virgin-wool suit with silk trims and trainers for the best of both worlds when you’ve been invited to after-work drinks. For her, the fitted knee-length dress is smart enough to be office-party appropriate, while the bold red hue keeps it festive. A black leather handbag with silver hardware toughens it up.
The one to sparkle in
Perfect for every Christmas party, the Konelly dress has a V-neckline and silver-jacquard material. Pair it with a simple chain bag and black court shoes, such as the Hellia heels in smooth Italian leather, to let the silver shine through.
The couple’s choice
Whatever the occasion, coordination is cool when you’re wearing matching tuxedos. Gentlemen, pair yours with a silk scarf and bow-tie. Ladies, keep your outfit from looking too borrowed-from-the-boys in slim-fit trousers and a cropped jacket left undone to show off the floaty blouse beneath.
The after-dark option
This look is less ‘dinner with the in-laws’, more ‘night on the town’. Pair skinny-fit, leather-look trousers with an eye-catching vest – such as the Idani top, crafted in Japanese velvet with organza inserts – and a tuxedo blazer for the perfect bar-hopping look. Gentlemen, throw a thin polo-neck jumper under your suit for luxurious nonchalance that’ll also keep you warm once the clock strikes midnight.
The red-carpet one
If you’re overwhelmed with black-tie invitations this Christmas, this look will save the day. An all-black suit, shirt and bow-tie looks suave and lets the spotlight shine on her floor-length, one-shoulder gown. With chiffon fabric and a deep plum shade, this dress is made for making an entrance.
The siren style
Crafted in head-to-toe scarlet, this suit is definitely not borrowed from the boys. Be bold and take the monochrome theme all the way with a matching silk shirt – it’s one to wear while you’re catching up with your girlfriends.
The date night one
It’s not Christmas without sequins, and this one-shoulder blue mini dress is perfect for date night and dancing till dawn. Meanwhile, the three-piece suit in complementary blue is coordinated without being overkill.
The one for ringing in the new year
Just because the big day is over doesn’t mean the parties have to stop. Tone down the classically festive colour scheme with black and plum to avoid the post-Christmas slump. This three-piece suit says understated cheer, while the little black dress will become your go-to outfit all year round. Discover the BOSS eveningwear collection in the boutique now.
