Now we’ve just about recovered from Halloween and Bonfire Night, it’s time to think about what we’re going to wear as party season has most definitely arrived. Our range of fabulous frocks for the ladies here on Littlewoods has plenty to offer – but what about the chaps? Looking smart and sorted during winter is simple with Littlewoods: read on for our great, on-trend choices that don’t sacrifice comfort either.
A good pair of comfortable but smart trousers are an essential component for any gent, but avoid anything too ‘workwear’ by steering clear of pinstripes or plain black trousers. Instead, opt for these French Connection Mens Machine Stretch Chinos in either a charcoal grey or khaki colour, depending on your personal preference. Black, greys, blues and cool colours will look good with the charcoal grey chinos; warm tones including red, brown and golden hues will work well with the khaki chinos. The flattering, slim cut of these chinos creates a streamlined silhouette suited to all body types, while the cotton material is breathable and machine washable.
For a more informal look that still looks smart, how about the Penguin Mens Heritage Fit Denim jeans? These dark indigo wash jeans are comfortable yet still smart enough to work throughout the party season. We also like the French Connection Mens Masterplan Jeans, with a slightly higher rise and classic straight-leg shape. These jeans are perfect for creating a casual silhouette that can be dressed up with formal shirts and brogues.
Party season is a great time to try out a bit of a new look, and at Littlewoods we’ve got some fantastic formal and informal shirts that can add a fashionable injection to the classic shirt and jeans combo. If you like the look of a crisp white shirt, why not update it with some design details, as seen in our green by Paul Costelloe Mens Shirt? The front pleat panels add a formal design feature, while the contrast inner cuff and collar gives a shot of colour to this traditional look. Another big trend that’s been popular for a while now in menswear is the denim or chambray shirt. Avoid looking too ‘hilbilly’ by wearing different shades of denim on your top and bottom half; the Fred Perry Mens Chambray Shirt would be ideal with either of the jeans mentioned above. A sharp, slim-fitting silhouette makes this otherwise casual shirt into a great choice for formal occasions, either with or without a tie.
Checked shirts are another perennial favourite, but go for an update by opting for something a little bit funkier. Our Bench Long Sleeve Mens Shirt in royal blue shades with a peppery-coloured stripe is a great addition to your party wardrobe, and looks good with both formal trousers and informal jeans. Choose a plain coloured tie in a dull jewel tone for formal parties – definitely no clashing prints here! For a bolder look, go for the Fred Perry Mens Overdyed Check Shirt in warm brown and beige tones. This sort of print looks best on slimmer chaps, but larger men should try it out by layering a warm caramel coloured V- neck jumper over the top. With its contrasting button band and button down colour, this is a great ‘mod’ shirt that would go well with the French Connection Mens Machine Stretch Chinos in khaki.
Looking good in party season needn’t be difficult with Littlewoods here to help. Whether its updated classics or on-trend fashion, we’ve got it covered!
