Get the Look: Christmas Party Neckwear

Will your workplace's Christmas party be a formal affair this year? Perhaps you have an invitation to a festive black tie event? Maybe you'd just like an excuse to sharpen up and feel Christmassy this December? Who can blame you?

In an age in which the open collar has become an uncreative and disappointing staple of Yuletide parties and shindigs, why shouldn't you push the envelope and sport some dashing menswear this year? It's time to say no to the predictable open collar and instead scrub up in AW15's best neckwear. We've compiled a few of our favourite pieces for this season to give you a bit of inspiration...

1. Circle Print Tie, Reiss1Green has been the colour in menswear in 2015 and, come Christmastime, the vogue is still going strong. This Vivienne Westwood number combines a bang on trend oversized print with a darker example of the shade of the season.

2. Green Giant Check Tie, Vivienne Westwood

2Green has been the colour in menswear in 2015 and, come Christmastime, the vogue is still going strong. This Vivienne Westwood number combines a bang on trend oversized print with a darker example of the shade of the season.

3. Solid Wool & Silk Tie, Hackett

3Ideal for less formal ocassions when you still fancy a bit of collar-based pizazz, woollen ties offer a more relaxed, vintage look which doesn't feel as dressy as a silk alternative. This 85% wool 15% silk option from Hackett strikes a great looking balance between quirky and sleek.

4. Knitted Bow Tie, Zara

4Striking the same kooky yet elegant balance, this knitted bow tie option is packing plenty of seasonal charm and cheer, while still keeping an element of sophistication in the mix. We approve. But not to be work with a moustache.

5. Tonal Gradient Tie, Paul Smith

5Modern and absolutely cracking with a sleek grey suit. Team this contemporary Bobby Dazzler with slim, sharp tailoring and  a crisp white or grey shirt to craft an indisputably on trend formal Christmas look.

6. Textured Herringbone Silk Tie, Ted Baker

6A dash of texture is a style essential in AW15 menswear and this herringbone number from Ted Baker is ideal for adding just a touch – but not too much. Available in three shades but we think this golden-coloured mustard number is just the ticket.
