In case you are confused about styling this vest, we have composed a costumed guide for your convenience. Read till the end and create an out-of-the-box look.
A WHITE INNER
The white inner that Santa Claus wears could be any simple white shirt. The choice depends upon your will. If you have something already in your wardrobe and do not want to buy anything else, go for it. But if you do not have anything related and have to buy something ultimately, there are certain considerations. A simple white dress shirt with buttoned closure at the front would be best as you can use it in your office too afterward. But if you are concerned about the cold and you are the person who gets the flu and fever frequently, then you need to keep yourself warm. Go for a white crew-neck sweater or a sweatshirt. In fact, a high neck could be a good option too. Other than these, there is the last option: if you want to buy something casual and less warm, go for a halved closure white shirt like that of Han Solo.
Over the vest, you have an option to wear another coat or a jacket. The Santa Claus coat is red with white strips on the front opening and cuff edges. It could be fur-lined too, and actually, it would look better. The material of the coat could be woolen, fleece, or leather, and it could be a leather jacket too. The Santa Claus coat has a buttoned closure and several pockets at the front. You can find it at any online or onsite store easily, even on sale in the Christmas season.
The outerwear is optional. If your coat is not fur lined from the edges, then you should carry outerwear. And if you could not find any coat, then outerwear is a must-have. It is usually a red-colored long trench coat with a shearling collar and white fur-lined cuff edges. The actor Kurt Russell is wearing a Santa Claus trench coat in some scenes of the two movies. It gives a cool yet bold and sassy look. Your trench coat must have a shearling collar and furry-lined white cuffs. The coat should be front open style. This looks so nice and bold.
Santa Claus wears a black-colored broad belt around his waist. You should tie a belt too to create an exact look that resembles Santa. The belt should be tied over the vest and the coat and not the trench coat or overcoat. You can find this belt at any online or onsite store easily. It is a common and simple belt. Maybe you are already having this in your wardrobe. Santa Claus’ belt is made of leather material, but you do not need to go that far. Just have a simple black belt that is available easily at your disposal.
There are multiple choices for the pants and multiple ways to style the Santa Claus pants. If you are not wearing a coat and a trench coat, and there is a simple vest, then you should wear red-colored skinny chinos. It would be a nice creative dress-up. If you have the trench coat and not the coat, you should wear skinny red chinos or jeans again. However, in other cases, any other pants would work. For example, you can wear trousers, wide leg-jeans, or dress pants. All of these should be red in color.
Usually, Santa Claus wears knee-high leather boots in shiny black color. The shoes must have a white furry trim at the edges. You should tuck your trousers or pants in the shoes to show off the white furry trim. If you do not have the desired shoes, you can wear any shiny black shoes, but your trousers or pants must have a white furry lining and not be tucked into the shoes.
A white thick beard, mustaches and wig, a red and white Santa Claus hat with a white woolen edge and a woolen ball hanging to it, a small sphere-shaped glasses, pair of white gloves, and a red and white Santa Claus sack with “merry Christmas” written on it and the sack must be full of gifts, are the other essentials of a Santa Claus look. You can find these chunks at any store online or onsite. You can buy these items from a sale where these might be sold as add-ons or in some deal. Some other add-ons are a white furry lined small cape tied over the shoulders and a bell in the hands as jingle bells.
You would need a little makeover to get into the character completely. And if you are trying to disguise yourself, then the makeover is essential and foremost. Try broadening and whitening your eyebrows. Make some wrinkles on your facial skin. Mold your voice into a lower pitch once and laugh loud laughter. And yes, do not forget to put something around your waist to make it look like a big fat belly.
