You might be attending a ton of parties this month and you are thinking how do I go formal and still stand out from the rest who are dressed formal. Let us count the ways:
Everyone has a black tuxedo and you can be a bit different but not shout look at me with a midnight blue tux. Some formal wear purists might actually tell you it is the better choice since it goes well with the evening light. Do it snappy with a low stance jacket to give you a longer look. Throw out the tie and use a bowtie. Go minimal for the insides with a solid white shirt with point collar plus French cuffs.
Keep everything minimal and let the elegance of the tux carry everything. Take simple cufflinks like silver or black. Oh, and never forget a good pair of socks which is a tone darker than your pants.
Velvet is perfect for the fall and the winter. Aside from the texture, the fabric also helps to keep your warm. You can go for a pleated shirt and formal waistcoat for the dandy look. Make sure when you fit the shirt that it highlights your shoulders and chest then tapers off the look as it goes down your waist. Finish the look with seamless leather black shoes. Again, keep things minimal.
A dinner jacket in white? Most actually come closer to the shade of ivory. Fashion gurus will say it is better in warmer weathers but snow and white can also mix. Opt for your tux pants in black or midnight blue. No breast pocket jacket also achieves a cleaner look.
The charcoal grey suit is perfect if you want to have that sharp but bad ass aura. Underneath you can don a French cuff white shirt and black tie plus the usual formal accessories—shoes, cufflinks, watch, etc.)
