What To Wear To A Holiday Party For Men

Christmas, New Year’s, Valentine’s—no matter what the occasion might be, there’s one simple fact: you’re going to get together with loved ones to celebrate a holiday at some point. Whether it’s for a Valentine’s date or for New Year’s with friends you haven’t seen in a while, you want to look your best and feel comfortable so you can enjoy the whole night. Need help deciding what to wear to a holiday party for men? We’ve put together a list of comfortable, classic items you can wear no matter when your next big event might be.

Keeping it Casual

If casual comfort is your priority, you can’t do much better than a classic knit shirt. Let’s start with the Henley. Long-sleeve Henleys are like sweaters, but not sweaters; long-sleeve T’s, but not long-sleeve T’s; polos, but not polos. They’re somewhere in the middle of it all—and that’s good news, especially if you’re not sure what to wear to a holiday party.

  • Flat Back Rib Henley in Charcoal: This piece is a classic charcoal/gray color, giving it a versatility that makes for easy layering in the winter months. It’s just as versatile when pairing with pants during the warmer seasons. In fact, there’s little space on the calendar when this piece won’t
  • Marled Space Dyed Henley in Blue: This light shade of blue is another versatile option that can dress down a pair of chinos and have you looking the best for just about any occasion short of black tie affairs.

    The Quarter Zip

    A quarter zip is casual, but it’s just dressy enough to fit in at family gatherings and even on dates. That’s what makes it a fantastic gambit for any man who doesn’t want to overdress or underdress for the occasion. Here are a few quarter zips you should think about:

    • Flat Back Rib Q-Zip Navy. You might have noticed we like versatile pieces. Know why that is? Because versatility means value. The more you can mix and match your quarter zip with other layers and trousers, the more value your wardrobe will have.
    • Fine Rib Terry Q-Zip Maroon. Want to mix up the color scheme without sacrificing any of the dressy quality of the quarter zip? You can pair maroon with khakis, with denim—with just about any type of pants you might have handy in the dresser, even right now. It’s also a good way to ensure that you don’t end up matching someone else’s look.

    Dressing with a classic American wardrobe shouldn’t be challenging. It should eliminate the kind of guesswork that makes deciding what to wear to a holiday party for men so frustrating. That’s why Vintage 1946 offers items you can grab from the dresser and feel confident about.
