Blazing Into Thanksgiving

Your journey to success is filled with a constant stream of presentations, meetings and social events, demanding our style to be on point. As we head into the holiday season it’s vital to remember that looking and feeling our best with our ultimate support system is just as important as doing the same for work. With Thanksgiving up ahead, here are some ideas to help you look sharp for friends and family at any holiday event.

Choosing the right blazer is key for any formal scene. It will set the mood for your entire look by letting others know you are dressed for a sophisticated occasion. Since 1952, when the term “blazer” first appeared in an article referring to a bright blazing red jacket worn by Cambridge’s Lady Margaret Boat Club, the timeless jacket has served as a decadent statement piece for those who like to stand out. 

We pay homage to the classic staple with the Argyleculture Velvet Blazer in Tawny Port or Black in a modern way with new tones and textures. You can easily pair this with the Argyleculture Button Front Shirt or the Argyleculture Two Tone Oxford shirt featured in our latest Look of the Week.

If you’re into a more classic aesthetic, try the JF J. Ferrar’s Solid Bowtie or play with texture by wearing a traditional solid color on a velvet tie like the Stafford’s Velvet Bowtie.  If you have an eye for color and patterns, try the IZOD Plaid Bowtie, JF JFerrar Paisley Bowtie or think about giving back with the bow-tie by Knots for Hope benefitting the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

You can approach the way you accessorize pocket squares in the same way you select a bowtie. While solid fall tones are a classic favoritelike the Pocket Square by J. Ferrar, don’t be afraid to step out of the box with patterns like Mini Dot’s Silk Pocket Square or a Stafford’s Gingham Pocket.

Once you’ve got your holiday look together, sit back, relax and enjoy the time you have with your friends and family.  If anyone asks where you got all of your sharp looks from don’t forget to point them to the nearest JCPenney, the Argyle LIfe blog and Instagram channel for style inspiration.
