Jeans outfits for parties

Party Wear for Men

It's the easiest place to start, what are you thinking about wearing to a house party with friends? Well of course, different jeans outfits for parties. No ground breaking news yet - when it comes to party wear for men, it's pretty obvious that a pair of black jeans are your bestfriend. Lets explore the different ways you can pull off wearing jeans outfits for parties.

The Classic All Black Outfit.

Always a good option in my eyes, combine those winning black jeans with a simple tee and leather jacket. However don't wear a pair of sneakers, dress up the look by wearing a pair of boots in suede. You don't need to look any further for the perfect brand: It's All Saints - every time.

Party Shirts for Men.

What does your collection of party shirts for men look like? If you have enough different styles then you can keep swapping them out to maximize the number of jeans outfits for parties - I'm a sucker for a printed shirt. If you're heading to a bar, you can put on your classic bar-friendly sneakers. Check out Paul Smith, Prada, Saturdays NYC, KSUBI, River Island...

Casual Party Wear

Expensive Statement Pieces.

The first two options not doing it for you? If you want to show people that you've obviously made an effort to get dressed up you could always put on an expensive pair of sneakers or a designer belt and it easily transforms your outfit to be more party appropriate. (Or - it's underlined for a reason.)

Perhaps you're searching for a more sophisticated men's party outfit? Time to trade in the jeans for something a little more formal.

Formal Pants

I'd say you can make a pair of black formal pants a more exciting option as party wear for men by combining it with a statement jacket - one of the top trends for men this year. Whether it's a dreamy suede bomber or a refined check coat, balance out the outfit by wearing a ribbed sweater and some classy boots.


Suede Jackets

Corduroy Pants

Trending: Cord is making a come back so you better figure out how to incorporate this style into your wardrobe, sharpish. It's actually quite simple, what's your favorite fit? Tapered or wide-leg? Once you've made that decision - search and compare on Fashiola to find your pair - combine the statement pants with a plain t-shirt or sweater, finish with brogue-like-shoes.

These outfit choices still not quite right? Well, time to check out how you can make one of the biggest trends for 2018 perfect party wear for men: men's blazers. 

Traditional Party Look

The blazer trends are as follows: tweed, check print, oversized, gray. Personally, I'd avoid wearing a black blazer in a more casual setting as it doesn't make for a great transition from officewear to a bar. ASOS have a seriously fun collection of blazers but if you're looking for something smarter I'd recommend Reiss, Ted Baker or Hugo Boss.
