How to Dress for Holiday Parties

The arrival of the holidays means the arrival of holiday parties. These can be great occasions to celebrate another year with family and friends, but you will need to have the right clothes in your closet before those dates arrive. Not to worry! At V1946, we are here to help. This post will provide some basic advice on how to dress appropriately for various parties, and you’ll find great garment options here on our site.

Flexibility is Essential

The first key to dressing for holiday parties is to keep flexibility in mind. This is important because the setting for a holiday party can change from event to event, or even from moment to moment. For example, part of the event might be outdoors, where the cool evening temperatures will require an extra layer. When you head back inside, however, you’ll want to be able to remove that layer so you can stay comfortable and not get overheated.

From Our Fall Collection for 2021, the Quilted Quarter Zip is a great example of this versatility. With the quarter-zip design, this garment is easy to pull on and off as needed, and it won’t add too much bulk to your outfit. Also, it has a stylish look that will go great with a button-down shirt and a pair of slacks or jeans, and it also offers significant warmth thanks to a blend of 60% cotton and 40% polyester. Add this jacket to your wardrobe and you’ll have a nice option for holiday parties as well as events throughout the rest of the cool months.

Sometimes Casual is Cool

For many holiday parties – such as those that are related to your work – you might want to dress on the slightly formal side. That’s not the case for all holiday events, however. For example, you might be invited to a late evening bonfire gathering by the beach, or some other kind of casual gathering for friends.

You’ll need something casual enough to fit in with the crowd, while also keeping your warm and delivering that flexibility we discussed above.

The French Terry Hoodie is another great pick from our fall collection. It features a comfortable blend of cotton and polyester. It also includes a comfortable knit cuff and a drawstring to pull the hood tight when needed. Everyone loves the comfort of a great hoodie, yet this one looks nice enough to avoid the sloppy appearance that comes with some garments in this category.

Get Trendy

The holidays are a great time to show off your style by staying up with the trends and wearing garments that have proven popular over the last year. Without a doubt, the shirt jacket – or “shacket” fits firmly in that category. Our version is the Performance Microfleece Shirt Jacket. This is a great selection for many different types of holiday parties.

Since it is part shirt, part jacket, you’ll be able to button it up to stay warm outside, and then undo those buttons once in a warmer space. In this way, it’s like having versatility without having to carry another garment. Also, the button-up look and collar make this a suitable option for events that are a little more formal.

Some of the many features you’ll enjoy in our version of the shacket include a blend of 95% polyester and 5% spandex, a left chest pocket, and a full button design. We also have an excellent selection of colors to make sure your new shirt jacket coordinates nicely with your favorite pairs of pants.
