Holiday Party Style: His and Hers


I came across this photo of Diane Kruger + Joshua Jackson this morning on People.com and couldn't help but notice their fantastic 40's style.
The classically polished style of the 40's is the perfect inspiration for holiday party wear.


His:
Two Words: Frank Sinatra. The impeccable style of this crooner has transcended decades for a reason. There’s nothing more classic then a well-tailored suit [and the hat and vest to go with it]! Add a pocket watch and/or a trench coat and you’re well on your way, gentlemen. In the [spot on] words of Frank, himself, “you’ve either got or you haven’t got style, [and] if you’ve got it you stand out a mile.”



Hers:
Red lips, pin curls, simple eye makeup, laced, buttoned, or buckled heels and a classically-cut dress establish a style that is chic and timeless. Add a pair of gloves and/or a bold hairpiece and you’re golden, ladies. Style mantra, in the words of the queen, herself, “Fashion fades, only style remains the same” - Coco Chanel.



Wishing you all a happy + safe holiday party season.

Their style is fantastic! And yes, perfect for holiday parties. E wore a vest (part of a three piece suit) and tie to a holiday party we attended on Saturday, and he was wanting to find a hat to go with the outfit, but we struck out in our search-- this photo makes me wish we had found one in time!

Love the tie&vest combo - it always looks so smart!

Finding the right hat is always difficult. Thank goodness for the Internet. (What DID we do without it)?

Callie, I have one of my Papa's hats (an old kangol one) that I wear all the time, too. I love it. Don't you wish you could go back in time?

I laughed out loud when I read your post, Christina: yes, he has. Being a local Vancouver boy, I've always had a sweet spot for him (which started from the Mighty Ducks movies). Ha Ha.
