Holiday parties are in effect. I had a client yesterday that told me he had six parties in the next two weekends. Six parties in two weekends is definitely a good problem to have. It is, but there is some planning required. Both he and his girlfriend had some style and gift planning to attend to.
Guys here are a few holiday party style suggestions. First off, this is the time to get in for your haircut. I cannot stress enough the importance of a good haircut! It is one of the first things that people notice about you. Trust me when I tell you that if your hair is a mess people not only notice, they will remember. Once your cut is complete, chat with your Stylist or Barber (at Sulimay’s of course) for styling product suggestions. Then you can run over to the mall, hit up Bloomingdales and grab a Robert Graham Taddeo Gingham classic fit button down shirt, a Donegal Cashmere Crewneck Sweater, or a Theory Weyland Sport Coat. You can layer them or use them in three different outfits. And if you don’t feel like battling the mall scene, head over to Kohls, go straight to Marc Anthony in the men’s clothing section and take care of all of that for a much different price point. A good pair of jeans is always necessary. You can dress them up or throw on a comfortable T-shirt and dress them down. And gentleman, if your mama didn’t teach you this, I am going to… Please do not walk in a party empty handed. The gesture of gifting a simple bottle of liquor, wine, a candle or even baked goods goes a long way.
Ladies if you want to step off the beaten shopping path of the road that we all know as the mall, you should seek out that charming little boutique filled shopping district in your area. And if you are in the Philadelphia area this is the perfect time to tell you about Manayunk. If you are looking for party dresses either simple or statement, or everyday casual wear come stroll Main Street in Manayunk. Seriously, Boutique stores like Vamp, Blue Denim, Milay and Threads or you can go visit Anila’s and have her custom design something amazing for you. These are just a few stores that you can find some very unique pieces. I guarantee no one else at the party or parties will have your dress on. Schedule a Blowout with a soft wave or disheveled Updo and a Makeup session at your favorite Salon or Blowdry Bar and you will be all set.
Then when you arrive at the party, sit back, relax and let yourself go. But not too far. It doesn’t matter how gorgeous or stylish you are, the person in blackout mode that turns into the sloppy drunk that needs to be babysat, well that person is just not cute. It’s that simple. Party hard, but don’t go from the hottie to the hot mess.
