Dress Codes for Men

White Tie

The most formal of all dress codes traditionally calls for a black tailcoat jacket and pants. However, these days most people just wear a classic black tuxedo. Pair with a formal white dress shirt with white studs and a white bowtie. Opt for sleek patent leather lace up shoes and don’t forget your black socks. As for accessories, cufflinks are a must and use a white pocket square with a presidential fold.

Black Tie

Elegance at its finest. Black tie is the most common attire for formal events around the world, so we suggest investing in a good fitting tuxedo since you’re going to need it. Traditionally, Black Tie meant you could only wear a black tuxedos with white shirts and a black bow tie, but now there are new rules. You can opt for a navy or even bordeaux dinner jacket with a white shirt and bowtie. Keep in mind that Black Tie is the code for black bow tie and not an actual tie. To finish the look, choose a sleek pair of black patent leather shoes or pumps.Fashion advice: Try to pay attention to quality, it will elevate your look.

This dress code is slightly less formal than black tie, meaning that a tuxedo isn’t required, but it is still an option. Any formal dark colored suit is perfect for this occasion.

This relaxed yet elegant dress code can also be referred to as business casual. The rule of thumb is wear dark colors during winter and lighter tones during the summer months. Ties are optional and showing personality is a must. Our favorite semi-formal looks pair a sleep tailored suit with a crisp clean button down and a fun pocket square to tie the look together.
