Weekend Wear: Ring in 2017 Looking as Dapper as Possible

New Year’s Eve is a time to get dressed up and stand out. Pick a suit in an unexpected colour, pair it with fun details in the spirit of celebrations, and a pair of dressy Chelsea boots that can also handle whatever winter throws at you. Looking good is the first step to ringing in the New Year the right way.

Weekend-Wear-NYE-Body1. Tiger of Sweden Jil Suit in Military Green, $900

You don’t need to dress like you do at the office for NYE celebrations, have a little fun instead. A slim, two button suit is always the right choice, but wearing one in an unexpected deep green hue is a stylish move that will get you noticed.

2. John Smedley Belvoir Rollneck Merino Wool Sweater, $275 at Mr. Porter

Ditch the shirt and tie in favour of a luxurious turtleneck — suave and sophisticated is the name of the game. Its thin knit construction is sleek and will keep you warm without the bulk.

3. 80Vibes New Year’s 2017 “It’s Time!” Lapel Pin, $11 at Etsy

A topical lapel pin is an easy way to get into the spirit of the celebrations without having to resort to wearing the sure to be tacky “2017” glasses and hats that are typical for NYE.

4. Yo Sox Champagne Crew Socks, $11

The fever for patterned socks has started to wane, but if you’re looking for a fun way to add a kick to your outfit, these champagne-covered socks are a sure bet. A prelude to popping bottles in person as you dance the night away.

5. Pierre Hardy Black Drugstore Chelsea Boots, $1,275 at Ssense

You don’t want to have to bring a second pair of shoes to change into once you arrive at your party, so pick a pair that you can wear outside in the snow just as easily as you can inside. These architecual chelease boots fit the bill perfectly.

6. Cartier Ballon Bleu de Cartier Watch, $7,900

Keep track of the time as it slowly creeps towards midnight with the Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch. The sleek case is convex with soft curves, and silver roman numerals, date, and sword-shaped hands pop against the black face — all of which is anchored by a glossy croc-embossed leather strap. 3-2-1, Happy New Year!
