What To Wear To A Christmas Light Switch On?


The first event of the Christmas season is often your annual Christmas Light Switch On. It is a relaxed affair, often held just after sunset, marking the beginning of the festive build up. You may go with family, friends, a partner, or solo. Regardless of who you go with, you deserve to feel your best and enjoy yourself. Here’s how…

For an early evening outdoor occasion in Autumn and Winter, knitwear is a brilliant choice. Designed to keep you insulated and warm, you will be able to enjoy the build up to and switching on of the Christmas lights. Knitwear makes a distinguished impression; it is a practical choice for a smart casual outfit in colder months, perfect for an event like this. 



Complete your winter smart casual men’s outfit with a T-shirt or thermal layer underneath for comfort, sweat absorption, and extra warmth. Wear a jacket, gilet, or coat over the top for protection from the elements and to keep the heat in. Finish your outfit with the addition of thick jeans, your favourite boots or brogues, and a hat or scarf.


What To Wear To A Christmas Market?


A good Christmas market is something to look forward to. If you’re lucky enough to have a big one in the area, or an acclaimed one such as the Bath and Winchester Christmas markets, you anticipate and look forward to visiting. Christmas markets can be held throughout the day, but we usually associate them with that early evening cold and night-time darkness filled with the light of the festive season. You will want to wrap up warm but have the ability to shed a layer or two if you decide to do a warm pit-stop in a restaurant, café, or pub. Find the perfect men’s winter layers and feel at perfect comfort while you explore your local market.



If you need to quickly change your outfit for different environments, such as going from a cold outdoor market to the inside of a warm pub, effective layering is essential.



Start with a base layer T-shirt. Whilst you will be covering this T-shirt up, you still want it to look good alone; we recommend one of our SUAVE OWL shirts for a comfortable item that works effectively by itself or layered.

Your second layer is something you can be flexible with. The primary purpose of this layer is to provide insulation. However, you can have a lot of styling fun with that and incorporate your preferences. A lumberjack shirt can be an excellent selection for this layer, as you can either have it unbuttoned showing the T-shirt beneath or button it for extra warmth. A long-sleeve button up works just as well. You could also opt for knitwear for a smarter touch to your winter outfit for men. For those that like to keep it casual, you could also consider a hoodie.



Your third and last layer protects you from the elements, such as rain and wind chill. A water-resistant jacket, gilet, or coat are all fantastic options. Your top layer can also be a statement of style – it is your outermost layer and the one that will make your first impression. You want something practical and stylish. Whilst some gentleman will opt for a statement jacket or coat, something we do enjoy seeing, most men will choose a neutral option that can be worn over and over throughout autumn, winter, and early spring. Ultimately, you want a coat that works practically and makes you feel confident. Check out our ranges for some ideas of what could work for you.
