Need inspiration for the Christmas party season?

FashionBeans editor Cillian O'Connor has picked his favourite pieces to keep you stylish over the festive period.

Nod to one of history’s slickest subcultures with a party look that’s equal parts refined and relaxed. A roll neck – especially this luxurious lamsbwool-cashmere blend – makes for a supremely comfortable alternative to the traditional shirt and tie pairing that’ll keep you looking right on trend without feeling restricted.

Sometimes it pays to steer classic. This fail-safe evening ensemble is smart enough to satisfy a strict dress code but – with the help of the jacket’s subtle leopard jacquard – doesn’t skimp on festive spirit. Perfect the look with a tie and pair of patent dress shoes.

Rules are meant to be broken. Take your cues from some of menswear’s most iconoclastic dressers with this military meets rock frontman get-up that puts green – a key colour for autumn/winter 2015 – centre stage.
