Menswear and Christmases in the Wild | Three Looks for Safari-themed Parties

Following the dress code is a social manner.

Christmas parties, may it be hosted by your company, your clan or a comrade, turn out to be merrier (and more Instagam-worthy) when guests join the fun of dressing up according to the prescribed party outfit. Equally significant to the merriment, following the dress code is a social manner.

What if this year, the invitation states “Safari Night”, “Christmas in the Wild”, or “African Christmas”?  Here is a three-look style guide to mingle!

A safari style color palette for your reference.

The colors in the safari style palette are easy to mix and match. These colors exude both manliness and the flora and fauna of the wilderness. Before going to shops just to buy a new piece for the party, skim through your closet first. You might already own one or even all the pieces with the safari colors that you can work on in achieving a fitting look for the party.

ABOUT THE LOOK: This is a Preppy Metro-Casual outfit. A smart casual look consists of a golden brown knitted polo and a green chino with light brown plaid pattern. Plaid suggests both the preppy and yuletide vibe. Knit is an opportune fabric for the Christmas breeze. Complete the look with a black tasseled leather loafer.

Brand Partners, Thank You!

True to all other dress codes, identify a celebrity or influencer, a movie/ TV series character who looks good at wearing it. Or an occupation who is associated to the theme. Identify and wear not just the outfit but as well as the persona. Treat your look as a costume and strut it with the associated attitude.

ABOUT THE LOOK : This is a “Lux Tent Safari Dinner” attire. A semi-formal safari dinner look inspired from both a hunter and an affluent safari tourist. The all-white monochrome of the pair is accessorized with safari-colored scarf and a safari hat with plaid pattern. Fabric for the undershirt and polo is light cotton while the pants’ is made out from linen. Finish the look with a brown tasseled leather loafer and a just-came-from-the-safari-trip vibe of satisfaction.

Equally significant to the merriment, following the dress code is a social manner.



SAFARI LOOK 3

Wear the Print | The Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao “Bold and Bright Holidays” Christmas Tree Lighting 2019

Prints (and patterns) are loud details to show how good are you at following the prescribed party attire. There are prints which are synonymous to the motif. These can be considered as safe, easy and predictable choices. Just be that wearer who gives an extraordinary bearing to such prints. Stand out as you own it “not” the way everyone wearing the same print is doing.

ABOUT THE LOOK : Here is a “Classique Leopard” garb. A cocktail night look with the classic animal print long sleeve. The shirt is purposely unbuttoned for a seductive play of the print. The pair is a complementing light brown pants with a high waist cut for a more dapper stand. Climax the ensemble with a well-polished black tassel loafer.

There are ways to pull off a “de rigueur“ outfit without spending much. Know the elements of the motif. These are the palettes, prints and persons associated to the theme. Be creative. Strut your look as it is your own style. Ultimately, enjoy being a true merrymaker with a substance and social manner as you party!

You are going to a party to mingle, right? Then start “mingling” by dressing up with such reason. And remember, Christmas socials should get wilder every year. Merry Christmas!
