A lot goes on every holiday season. You have to shop for gifts for your loved ones, plan delicious holiday meals, and figure out the perfect outfit to wear to all of the season’s gatherings. With all of the events happening this time of year, the attire you want to wear to each of these may vary based on the location and atmosphere. Skyline Cruises has been the venue for many holiday party cruises and events. We would like to give you some advice about dressing for your upcoming holiday festivities and would also like to recommend booking your holiday party with us! Our climate-controlled yacht, the Skyline Princess, sails year-round and will provide you the most spectacular setting of any party this season!
Holiday Party Dress Code
The first step in determining what to wear to your holiday event is figuring out if there is a dress code. Is the party formal or casual? What is the atmosphere going to be like? Is this a business function, or a gathering of friends and family? You will need to plan accordingly for the type of event you will be attending.
Dressing for Formal Events vs. Casual Events
If your holiday event is a black tie affair, expect to dress formally. For women, according to Readers Digest, this typically means a floor-length evening gown, a knee-length dress with heels, or your dressiest black dress. A tuxedo, black bow tie, or black cummerbund or vest paired with black patent-leather shoes are the recommended black tie attire for men.
For a less formal event that has a festive and fun feel, such as a cocktail party, it is recommended for ladies to wear dress pants or a skirt with a nice blouse. Men should stick to a jacket and slacks either with or without a tie. Cocktail attire allows for colors and patterns that are a bolder than formal attire.
If your holiday party is casual, then anything goes! This means anything from jeans, a skirt, or pants paired with a pretty top for women, and khakis with a button-down, a sweater, or polo shirt for men.
Keep in mind that if this is a corporate event, your clothes should never be too revealing. Be sure to choose darker seasonal colors and fabrics, and make sure that your hair is tidy.
