The style playbook: What to wear (and bring!) to every holiday party this year
From formal wear to ugly sweaters, we've got you covered.

Your office party is when you have the opportunity to really let loose and enjoy the fruits of your labor. But you have to remember, you’re still at work (or at least with your work folks). So, keep it classy without being stuffy in this outfit.
You either love them or you hate them, but ugly sweater parties are likely to make their way into your holiday plans at some point. Make the best impression (what that means can be up to you) by going with something like this outfit.
When it comes to family holiday gatherings, dress like you have to impress… your grandma. It’s as simple as that. Save your passive-aggressive sartorial protests for another time. An outfit like this keeps it sharp when there is no jacket required.
A gift exchange party is meant to be fun, so don’t over think it. Sitting around the fire trading gifts under $25 hardly calls for a suit and tie. Just stick with the holiday theme by wearing a fun and festive fair isle sweater and keep it comfortable in your favorite jeans. Again, don’t over think it.
We would venture to guess that the holidays will require formalwear at some point. Keep on trend without blowing your gift budget by renting a navy tuxedo from the modern tux rental company The Black Tux.
