In association with Aristocracy London, Leyton Orient’s Official Formal Wear Partner
Christmas is just a month away and it may fall on the same date every year but, for some reason, you just don’t see it coming. Perhaps you don’t like planning ahead or maybe you are choosing to keep your expectations very low in case of another lockdown… Whatever the reason, here you are: you don’t remember where your decorations are kept, you haven’t bought any gifts yet, and you have all these parties to attend and nothing to wear!
We can’t help with the tree trimming or the gift wrapping, but the O’s formal wear partner, Aristocracy London, have shared some tips to help you look and feel super stylish this Christmas:
Christmas party hosts put a lot of time and effort into the evening, so the least you can do is show up looking fabulous. If you wear something from your existing wardrobe, make sure it still fits and it’s dry cleaned – or why not splash out and get yourself a new suit to mark the beginning of a better new year? Our (obvious) choice is the Leyton Navy & Burgundy 3 Piece Suit, inspired by your favourite football club and monogrammed for an added touch of luxury.
The one thing people always notice about a suit is how it fits. Long sleeves, short trousers, tight waist and loose shoulders are immediately noticeable and suggest that you either borrowed the suit from someone who’s a different size, or you bought the wrong thing! This helpful blog will tell you everything you need to know about how a suit should fit and what to look for when you’re shopping around.
There are times when it’s preferable to blend in – no-one wants to spend a day in the office staring at someone dressed for the BAFTAs… But fancy parties aren’t the place to blend in! If they give you a stage and ask you to stand out, make sure you do just that! You could invest in a great accessory like a fancy tie or pocket square…or you could go all out and mark the occasion with a statement design, like this Windsor Gold 3 Piece Short Tailcoat Suit.
And don’t forget that all Aristocracy London suits are limited edition and Leyton Orient fans can benefit from a 10% discount across the entire collection with the code LEYTON. So check out before they sell out!
And if you’re still looking for a venue for your Christmas party, why not host it at Leyton Orient? Hire one of our fantastic event spaces for a Private Party Night or join others for a great atmosphere on our Shared Party Night on Friday 17th December!
Full details can be found in our Christmas party brochure, available to read online here, and don’t forget that giving is our goal this Christmas: every meal booked will support The Hub at Highams Park Food Aid to deliver Christmas meal boxes to the E4 community.
