 PHOENIX -- The holiday party whirl is coming up, and the festive season has lots of folks wondering what to wear.

The stores are filled with sparkly tops and cocktail dresses for the ladies, but what about for the guys?

Our Javier Soto got some fashion tips to keep the men looking stylish through the holidays and all year long.

One hot look for guys going formal this year is black on black.  “It’s a great look, and it breaks up from wearing tuxedos all the time, or the guys in suits,” says Charles Alexander from Imago Style.

Don’t forget to top off that look with a hat. “Hats are in right now,” Alexander tells us. “It’s cool, it’s fresh, and it’s cool outside right now so you want a nice hat.”

If the holiday party isn’t too fancy, you might go with a semi-formal look, like a tapered, streamlined suit.

And you don’t always have to stick to basic black. “Darker blue is great,” Alexander says.” A good charcoal grey is great as well."

Another look that’s hot is one that can transition from the office to a happy hour. That outfit might include a nice shirt and tie, or an open-collared shirt.

And for a casual party? You can’t go wrong with jeans and a sport coat over a shirt or sweater.

The most important tip, though, is to not take your look too seriously.

“I want you to have fun with your clothing,” says Alexander “You’ve got to own it.”
