Did you just open a party invitation, and a dress code says: holiday attire? We are here to help you choose the best outfit for that party!

Dressing up for a holiday party shouldn’t feel like a burden, it should rather be a joyful experience. Holiday parties do come in all shapes and sizes, and they are the best of the best when it comes to dressing up! The best thing to do is prepare on time, and feel good about your holiday outfit. Holiday or festive attire means a cocktail attire with a twist! You should show off your holiday spirit without wearing a flashy Rudolph sweater! Gravitate towards a more formal look. Looking put together is never a bad thing, but you should add some playfulness.


A Guide to Festive Holiday Dress Code

What better place to shop your festive holiday clothes than Murray’s Toggery Shop!? This season, we stocked some of your favorite Castaway holiday pieces to make your shopping easier. From party pants to festive blazers, we have it all! Whether you want a standard outfit in Christmas colors such as red and green, or you feel more avant-garde and want an odd outfit, we got you covered!


  • Your safest bet - stick with colors of the season!

Wear a red and green outfit for a holiday party and it will for sure show your holiday spirit! These colors have been associated with winter holidays for centuries, so you know you will be wearing a classic! Get Castaway Beachcomber Corduroy Patchwork Pant in Hunter & Crimson, and wear it with a white shirt, with or without the blazer. Oh, and don’t forget your Santa hat to complete the look! These colors will bring a warm feeling of the season, and you will be dress to impress.



  • For a bold outfit - go with holiday embroidery motifs!

A solid pair of pants with the embroidered shirt will turn up the festive spirit. Castaway Blue Oxford Shirt with Candy Canes is a perfect choice. Or go with the party pants! We have them with Christmas Tree, Christmas Delivery, Candy Canes, Nutcracker, Rudolph, and Joy motifs. Pair them with a white shirt and add a blazer or sweater to complete the look! If you decide to add a solid blazer it will be an easy way to stay professional, but if you want to bring some holiday spirit, why not go with the one with holiday embroidery motifs - Christmas Tree or Candy Cane, it’s a tough choice! Any of these outfits will, for sure, help you stand out from the crowd!


  • An alternative - tartan!

If you are not a big fan of Candy Cane, Rudolph, or Christmas tree, you should opt-out for tartan. Incorporate tartan into your outfit as an alternative, and it will give an extra holiday touch to your outfit. Castaway Chase Shirt in blue and white with Royal Stewart Trim, in a classic fit, will be your to-go shirt around holidays. It will spice up your outfit and make this Christmas a holiday to remember!

Even if your Christmas party invitation doesn’t state a dress code, why not go with festive clothes. Spice it up with embroidery pants or shirt, everyone will love it, and you will for sure be noticed. The most important thing is to feel comfortable and confident because it will be a night of dancing, and you don’t want your clothes to keep you from having a great time. Keep it formal but fun, and show your personality. If you are feeling good about yourself, it will show!

We have some exciting news here atMurray’s Toggery Shop, home of the originalNantucket Reds Collection! We started a major renovation this winter to transform our Ladies' and Children's department. While it’s true that nowadays people like to shop online, it doesn’t mean that brick-and-mortar stores are completely out-of-style. We still get a high volume of customers, not only in the summer, but also in the off-season, and we decided that this is a perfect year to give our customers better in-store shopping experience, as we celebrate our 75th anniversary!
