Christmas Day attire usually involves the same old suspects – boardies, sunnies and a pair of thongs. But, unfortunately sometimes it involves being dressed head to toe in an array of unfortunate Christmas gifts… To save yourself from the charity of benevolent mums, aunts, and even girlfriends as they try to ‘reinvent your look’ this Christmas, take a fashion stand and kit yourself up with a selection of style sensible outfits for the festive season.

Formal Affair
If you’re attending a more formal Christmas occasion this year, dress yourself up in a crisp white shirt, good leather shoes and some slick accessories.

Kick Back Casuals

For many, Christmas day is about being by the water. Whether you’re laying by the pool or hitting the beach, a pair of boardies and sunnies are your go-to.

Guy Grooming
Whether you’re dressed in your Sunday best or donning your favourite old pair of trunks, looking fly from head to toe is a necessity. If your current regime consists of a dab of moisturiser and a questionable squirt of cologne, it’s time to step it up a notch. And we’re not talking escalating to the realm of metro… A clean shave and a lick of product through your hair can make all the difference.
