Be the best-dressed man in the room
Men are often confused about what to wear when they receive an invitation to attend a party. A trusty suit is a popular, safe choice. Nowadays, invitations also include dress codes (also known as themes) and it is only fair to respect the host and dress according to the theme.
With so many party themes, you cannot blame a man for showing up in a suit, after all it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. We have broken down the dress codes for you and made it easier for you to choose the perfect suit for the occasion.
Cocktail attire is one of the most common dress codes for fun events; it also semi-formal and flexible. You could wear a suit in a dark colour palette, with a tie or without one. Chinos or dark coloured jeans paired with a dress shirt and a sports jacket would also be a great choice. Finish the look off with a shiny pair of Brogue-Oxfords.
For an office party you could take clues from the day-to-day attire at your office. If you are still clueless, think of it as relaxed office clothing that is classy. Either way you’ll still look great to your colleagues! For an office party, gentlemen can rock up in loafers paired with a suit with pinstripes or checks.
If the party invite has no specific dress code or theme, the invitation itself (quality of the invitation and design) is the best indicator of how to dress.
Black tie party
Dressing for a black tie event for men entails dressing up in a tuxedo and its accompaniments: a black dinner jacket (it can be a black, white or cream coat with black lapels) and matching trousers, an optional black formal waistcoat, a white formal shirt, a black bow tie. For a simpler, laidback look, wear a long, black tie, black socks and black formal shoes (preferably Oxford).
These tips should make it simpler for you to look your best at your end-of-year bash. Pair it with a winning attitude and you will be the most sought-after man in the room.
