Party Wear Outfits for Winters
‘Tis the season to keep warm and with that weather comes the need for fashion techniques like layering. By being mindful of the colours and essentials you wear, layering can not only flatter your looks but also keep you super warm. The good news? The following winter wear suggestions can double out as sharp party wear too. So, why shy away from looking like the most dapper person in the room? Grab these staple pieces and ace your look for the night in minutes.
  1. Tom Shelby vibes: Peaky Blinders fanatic? This is your chance to prove it. Channel your inner Shelby and add a layer of overcoat on your formal outfit. Depending upon how cold it is, start with a sweater, jumper or shirt paired with straight leg pants and add an overcoat like the one by Dinkar Aneja to complete the look.
  2. The party bomb: You don’t have to do over-the-top preps to look the best at a party. With the right bomber/biker jacket, you can ace your way through the winters. For an Indian themed outing, get yourselves a Mayank Modi bomber or head out in an all black ensemble paired with a fully done Biker Jacket by Jenjum Gadi.
  3. All things formal: Got an important work party? With the right suit and formals, you can have all eyes on you while still keeping warm this winter. A tuxedo dinner jacket like the textured one by Dinkar Aneja is one of the right choices for formal work dinner parties that can be paired with tunics and trousers to give that extra edge. If you want a splash of colour, feel free to go with an asymmetric blazer by Sarab Khanijou to bring your look together. Team it up with a white shirt and black pants so you can face the cold without compromising on the outfit.
  4. Away from the black: Black is a great choice for parties, but it’s wrong to underestimate the power of whites in your wardrobe. A white pullover by Kunal Anil Tanna is the perfect piece to pair with anything from jeans and trousers to suits and bombers. Throw in a sleek pair of shoes and you’re ready to look cosy and smart.

Different ways to style your overcoat

Different ways to style your overcoat

Overcoats are a great way to amp up any winter look you’ve got in mind. From a night out to that important client meeting, overcoats make you look great with ease. They’re easy to match with the atmosphere because they keep you warm and stylish. That said, it’s important to pair them up with the right pieces of clothing and accessories to get the perfect look. We’ve brought you a roundup of a few different styles that you can use.

The office look: Got an important workday? Throw on an overcoat on your well-fitted suit as an extra layer of looking formal. It works better than ski jackets and keeps the look classy and cosy. If you’ve got a dark suit (such as navy blue, black, dark grey), you can add an overcoat of a lighter shade such as tan or camel that is knee-length or a little longer than that.

The night out: Dress down with an open double-breasted overcoat that’s paired with a buttoned-down shirt or a sweater and a pair of jeans to head out for the night. Team this up with a pair of classy black or brown boots as you step out.

The daylight look: A great way to step out during the day is to keep the elements of your outfit light and breezy. Complete the basic look of a white T-shirt and some blue jeans with an overcoat to tie it all together. Make sure you leave the overcoat unbuttoned to add a casual element throughout the day.

The smart-casual: If you’re looking for a smart-casual look, layering needs to be done right. And an overcoat is the best way to add that. Start with a basic shirt (white/beige) and add a layer of a dark brown sweater on top. Finish with an overcoat of any dark colour and you’ll be equipped to move swiftly from work to a dinner date.

The ‘all-black’ dapper man: A classic ‘all-black’ look never disappoints. Pair your black overcoat with a black sweater and jeans for the ultimate ‘all-black’ outfit. Complete your look with a pair of black boots and voila, you’re super dapper.

With winters, comes the idea of layering and staying cosy. But being comfortable and warm does not mean you let go of your style quotient. When done correctly, winter fashion can make you stand out in your important office meeting or even when you head out for the night with friends. All you need is the right set of winter essentials. The best part? You can easily play mix and match with these items to create multiple looks.

Bomber Jacket: A black bomber jacket can instantly amp up your casual look and keep you warm. Get yourself an embroidered bomber jacket that can work with any of your basic T-shirts and jeans. Not only does it give the right shape at the shoulders and waist for most men, but it can also be paired with sweaters or jumpers to keep warm.
A pair of navy pants: Navy blue will always rule the winters when done right. A pair of well-fitted navy blue trousers like the toco pants by Son of a Noble Snob can be clubbed with anything from a formal jacket to a sweater. They are perfect for the smart-casual look you’ve always wanted – just throw on a jumper and a pair of sneakers. These pants can also double out as a formal set of pants with a white shirt and a tuxedo jacket.
The classic grey overcoat: What is a winter wardrobe without an overcoat? Overcoats are the perfect addition to any outfits during winters because they give you the right look while using layering techniques. A grey-black herringbone wool overcoat such as the one by Dinkar Aneja is a versatile staple that you can pair with anything from tunics and sweaters to shirts and T-shirts. If you’re worried about the colours, don’t be. Thanks to its blend of greys and blacks, it works well with shades of white, grey, beige, reds and of course, black.
A salmon suit: Suits are an obvious choice during winters because they strike the perfect balance between warmth and style. While blacks, greys and blues are popular choices during the season, you might want to keep a light pink suit handy with you. This works really well for any day events during winters and is easy to pair with white tunics/sweaters.
The fun shirt: Just because it’s all about layering, does not mean your basics should be ignored. Add a little spunk to your shirt collection with something like a Terrier shirt by Sahil Aneja. Smart and cute options like these are perfect for any casual look – be it day or night.
A mask: This one is probably the newest entry in everyone’s pack of staples and it’s no secret that the cold weather makes it all even a bigger necessity than what it was. A black cloth mask that not only keeps you safe but also fits your outfit easily is a good call. What makes this mask even better is the eco-friendly element of it as it would be reusable and washable.
Warm socks: Keep your feet warm and stylish with the right pair of socks for every occasion. Having a sock box like the ones by SockSoho with a variety of socks in there is an easy hack to a great winter wardrobe.

Subtle is king: Want a sleek formal look for your luxurious brunch? It’s simple. Add a pair of pink cufflinks by Closet Code to your white or grey shirt and pair them up with navy blue or black trousers to pull the look together. This helps in creating a smart and formal look that does not look over-the-top and still makes you look handsome.

Cool and casual: The standard pink shirt and blue/black denims will not disappoint you. But that’s no reason to shy away from experimenting. Look for a quirky shirt that makes you stand out from the crowd in the golden hours. A premium shirt by Abkasa or the adorable Terrier linen shirt by Sahil Aneja is the way to go for your daytime brunches. You can even pair them with lined trousers and some white sneakers to look chic and casual in minutes (bonus points for keeping your hair on point!).

Easy breezy: This one’s probably the easiest way to rock a brunch-date outfit. Throw on a pullover that fits well and amplifies your frame (yes, including shoulders and back) and team it with a pair of interesting printed trousers. Need some inspiration? Just look at the tunic and pants designed by Kunal Anil Tanna. With the right sneakers or loafers, you’ll have all eyes on you (especially, your date’s). If you want to keep it low-key, feel free to add a pair of plain trousers with the tunic to bring in a smart-casual vibe without the risk of looking boring or common.
Simple: You don’t have to add anything fancy to look out of this world amazing for your brunch. A white shirt and navy blue printed linen pants is the perfect choice to make. Need the look ASAP? Get the Toco Pants by Son of a Noble Snob to get started.

Feel free to go through our dapper collection and pick out anything else that you love for your ultimate brunch.
