Time to Celebrate! Christmas & New Years are both just around the corner! How will you be celebrating? Here is an example of formal celebration outfit featuring a Velvet Jacket in Burgundy and pairing the look with a Bow Tie.

The Velvet Jacket is the ultimate show-stopper in Menswear. It is reserved for that special occasion and when you put it on people know it's celebration time! Wear it for the NYE party, your birthday, and any extra special celebratory event.

When you do rock the Velvet Jacket, go all the way and throw on the Bow Tie to finish off the formal look.

For the complete formal look with the Velvet Jacket I paired it with black suit pants, black dress shoes, and black leather strap watch. The spotlight is on the Velvet Jacket and the rest complements it well by keeping it sleek and dapper.

Quick Tips on staying warm if you either don't want to carry a topcoat or don't have one: UNIQLO HEATTECH! I absolutely love Uniqlo's Heattech during this time of the year because I easily layer on their warm yet thin pieces.

Your first layer is the first line of defense - go with Uniqlo's Heattech Long Sleeve Shirt & Long Johns. (HERE) They are like the Menswear version of Under Armor compression. Then put on Uniqlo's Ultra Light Down Vest for an easy layer.

Uniqlo's Ultra Light Down Vest makes for an easy layer because of its lightness that can go right under the Jacket.

Finally accessories are your friends - grab a scarf and some gloves to make sure you are all covered and good to go!

Celebrate good times...come on!!!
