 The British Academy Television Awards or as most people know it the BAFTAs takes place this month and the title sponsor for them is House of Fraser. They will be dressing the nominees and putting on events informing everyone on all of the latest information on the run up to the big event.

When it comes to ultra glam red carpet events it always seems to be the women that seem to get all of the attention for what they are wearing. With stunning gowns and lots of bling everyone wants to know which designer is splashed all over them. However what about the men, looking dapper in there pristine suits it's time to focus on what the men wear.

Looking at men's choices from previous red carpet events I seem to be drawn to two factors colour and texture. I like the outfits that aren't just the simple monochrome tuxedos. Don't get me wrong many men can pull them off so well but why not be a little different, add some sparkle or a splash of colour. I'm not talking bright neon's but the darker richer shades of reds and purples seem to be my personal favourites.

House of Fraser are a big name when it comes to department stores in the UK and have a huge range of formal wear that will be showcased on all of the nominees on the big night. In particular they have an impressive range of shirts from various designers ranging in price, colour and pattern. Seriously whether your looking for the most prestigious of occasions or for a casual night out there is something to fit your needs. So lads your truly spoilt for choice. Check out the range here.

To celebrate being the official sponsors of the BAFTAs House of Fraser challenged me to create a look of my own that I would consider fit for the red carpet/smart event and see how easy it is to style up one of the shirts available from their range. I managed to convince my good friend Tom into modelling the outfit I put together, although I say convincing it didn't take much for him to say yes.
I went for the theme 'smart casual' as I thought it would be more of a challenge. For the shirt I picked a beautiful slim fit Ted Baker number. The fit of it is really nice and the small spot print doesn't make the shirt too in your face. And the quality oh my, it's so good. The dark shade of colour I believe makes it really easy to pair with any items. To add a bit more of a casual twist I decided to go with some skinny jeans from Topman and as they are black it doesn't really look obvious that they are jeans. However you have to smarten it up if your going out to a red carpet event right?? Brogues are my favourite type of shoe for both men and women so when I saw Tom had these classic black brogues they just had to be included as they instantly smarten up any outfit. And for added tailoring I chose to pair the outfit with this grey blazer which adds even more of a smart vibe. It's made many appearances at house parties back in the days of sixth form so it has a sense of nostalgia.  

I'm now really excited to see what House of Fraser has to offer for the BAFTA nominees and will no doubt be taking notice of what the men are wearing just as much as the women
