#4 Embrace the micro-trends
Leather practically covered the AW19 catwalks so forget UberPool, a black biker jacket might just be the perfect party travelling companion. Heavy black boots and winter co-ords, thick utility shirts with trousers in the same material, will look great for casual parties. Timothée Chalamet is doing it, just saying.
Tie-to-shirt matching is in, where you pair a tie in the exact same material and hue to your shirt. Take Cole Sprouse for inspo (and Jeff Goldblum, John Legend and the Burberry AW19 catwalk as well). Long-line puffer jackets were among the coats of choice on the runways and are perfect for casual looks, looking soft and cosy, but also serious and authoritative at the same time.
#5 Move your feet with the times
When menswear was governed by a strict rulebook, Oxfords and Derbies were the only acceptable shoes to wear for fancy occasions. Alas we are restricted no longer.
Loafers are ideal (as long as torrential hail isn’t on the cards) and nod to next season’s very louche aesthetic. Wear with a thin black sock or naked (feet, we mean your feet). And as we often advocate, you are allowed to wear your best Hypebeast-worthy trainers to a party – unless it really is black tie, in which case you’ve got to go for shoes. Sorry.
And there you have it: five rules to embrace, five modern ways to do event dressing. Go forth and party folks. You’ve got this.
