- Jewelled Detailing
Rhinestones have made a comeback this year, and there’s never been a better time to wear them. This Black Satin Dress with Jewelled Strap by Maje brings a touch of glamour and is oh-so versatile, as well as showcasing another trend of the moment – a lightweight mock-neck jumper that it can be worn with or without – making the two-in-one piece perfect for day or evening. And it’s a traceable product too, made using certified raw materials – bonus. Find Maje in Jubilee Place mall.
- Luxurious Velvet
Velvet gives an aura of elegance, and what could be better than wearing this luxurious winter-friendly material in red, the most traditional festive colour? How about pairing this Single Breasted Tailored Velvet Blazer from Reiss with the matching Bree Velvet Trousers for a bold statement? Or team it with your other wardrobe staples to give any outfit the ultimate Christmassy feel. Find Reiss in both Jubilee Place and Cabot Place malls.
- Winter Brights
Take your outfit to the next level and go bold or go home. This Oversized Satiny Shirt in fuchsia from Sandro Paris can be worn open with the matching Satin Bra Top underneath or on its own buttoned up. The bright pink colour – statement hues have been a top trend for 2022 – is bound to put a smile on yours and everyone else’s faces, and make you stand out from the crowd. Find Sandro Paris in Jubilee Place mall.
- Green with Envy
L.K. Bennett’s Coddington Dark Green Lamé Georgette Dress is a beautiful occasion outfit and has been designed with celebrations in mind.

For your make-up, there’s bountiful options, from beauty emporiums Space NK, Kiehl’s, Since 1851, Bobbi Brown, Rituals…, Malin+Goetz and The Body Shop, to wow-factor eyeshadow and lipstick from MAC. Finally, don’t forget the fragrance – Jo Malone London has released some gorgeous festive fragrances.
- Smart Attire
Ditch the jeans and shirt and shop GANT’s Fall/Winter Campaign where you’ll find this 100 per cent silk Slim Fit Sold Bow Tie Shirt. A daring and elegant ’70s-inspired piece, it’s designed with adjustable cuffs and a curved hem, and the shine and drape makes it perfect for special occasions when styled with a blazer and the Tuxedo Suit Pants. Find GANT in Canada Place mall.
- Roll Necks
This style of jumper can be dressed up or down and will keep the winter chill at bay too. Paul Smith’s Cashmere Roll Neck Sweater in damson is a stunning Christmassy hue and features the brand’s ‘Artist Stripe’ detail at the back of the neck, providing a signature further flash of colour. Find Paul Smith in Canada Place mall.
- Velvety Smooth
Velvet has also been seen on the male model runways. And for those occasions when something extra special is required, turn to this luxurious Italian Velvet Jacket by Charles Tyrwhitt, available in navy or mocha. The two-button styling puts a contemporary spin on this piece and will add a dash of elegance to your occasionwear ensembles. Team it with knitwear for a relaxed finish or go formal with a crisp white shirt and a bow tie. Find Charles Tyrwhitt in Canada Place mall.
- Plaid Print
The history of the plaid print dates back 3,000 years, yet this pattern goes beyond Scottish Highlander kilts, giving a heritage look that is still very now. Channel it with these XX Chino Straight trousers from Levi’s for a smart/casual look. Find Levi’s in Canada Place mall.
- Textured Materials
Ditch the plain shirt and instead look for those with texture, such as this Long Sleeve French Cuff Jacquard Shirt by Ted Baker that’s perfect for Christmas and into 2023 and beyond. The 100 per cent cotton fabric makes it comfortable to wear, while the classic collar and long sleeves refine the look. Find Ted Baker in Canada Place mall.
Don’t forget to match your smart outfit with a fresh and polished look. Once you’ve shopped for your outfit, head to one of Canary Wharf’s many beauty brands. Start at Ted’s Grooming Room or Adam Grooming Atelier for a shave and haircut. Next, for skincare, visit brands such as Space NK, Kiehl’s, Since 1851, Bobbi Brown, Rituals…, Malin+Goetz and The Body Shop who stock men’s cosmetics, while for fragrance check out Penhaligon’s which has a range of seasonal scents, and if you can’t decide on which one you like best there’s The Showmen – five miniature festive fragrances for gents.
