If it’s black tie, it’s going to be pretty straightforward in regards to a suit.

A dinner jacket and trousers is most traditionally worn in midnight blue or black, with a white dress shirt and bow tie.

Additionally, a cummerbund and scarf will jazz the look up if required.

You can’t really go wrong (unless you accidentally turn up in an iridescent turquois dinner jacket and pink bow tie combo which we do not advise).

If the dress code is smart casual, this may be a problem for some.

This can be an ambiguous clothing restriction, however do not worry.

A tailor made jacket can be worn with some festive coloured corduroys or chinos, along with an oxford shirt and for the more quirky individuals and a festive bow tie.

Whichever merry mix-match you decide to sport, make sure you have fun with it.

It’s Christmas after all.

Unless you prefer take on the scrooge approach and you’re just looking forward to letting your quiff down!
