The tuxedo epitomizes timeless elegance, a classic style statement that has stood the test of time. But just because it’s a classic doesn’t mean you must stick to tradition. There are plenty of stylish ways to wear a tuxedo that can redefine the modern gentleman‘s look.
Here are some tips on elevating your tuxedo game and adding personality to your black-tie attire.
Classic Black Tux for Black-Tie Events
Wear a black tuxedo with a single-breasted jacket, one-button, peaked satin lapel, and a white tuxedo shirt for a classic black-tie occasion. Add a black bow tie, a matching black vest (optional), and a black and white polka dot pocket square for some added pizzas. Black patent leather oxford shoes are the perfect choice to finish this ensemble.
Consider a double-breasted black tuxedo for a distinctive and memorable look. The double-breasted design adds a touch of modern sophistication. We highly recommend this look for grooms and event hosts.
Luxury Formal Event with Royal or Midnight Blue Tuxedo
Looking to make a statement at your next formal luxury event? Consider a royal or midnight blue tuxedo for a modern take on classic formalwear. Pair it with a crisp white dress shirt and a sleek black bow tie for a timeless look. Pair it with a white pocket square.
Want to add a pop of color? If you feel daring, go for a dark red bow tie. It will beautifully complement the deep blue hue of the tuxedo.
Finally, make every step stylish by completing the look with sleek and sophisticated black patent leather oxford dress shoes. Not only do they look great, but they also offer unbeatable comfort, allowing you to dance the night away with ease and effortless style.
Sunglasses can be an excellent accessory choice for your royal or midnight blue tuxedo. Adding elegant sunglasses to your look not only complements your sophisticated attire but also adds a touch of glamour and chic. The dark blue tuxedo, known for its regal and refined appearance, pairs exceptionally well with sunglasses in complementary colors and sleek designs. Choosing sunglasses in classic black, dark tortoise, or metallic finishes not only adds an elegant touch to the look but also ensures that the overall outfit remains cohesive and well put together
Burgundy Tuxedo Jacket for Black-Tie Creative Dress Code
Get ready to add a twist to your black tie ensemble! If you’re attending a themed event, you can showcase your creativity. The black-tie creative dress code is where you have some room to experiment with colors. The rich tones of red, burgundy, shades of green, and grey will stand out while still appearing appropriately dressed.
Wear a crisp white dress shirt, and choose a coordinating standard shape silk bow tie. Finally, this is the appropriate place to don your luxurious velvet slippers.
Black-Tie Optional with Charcoal Dinner Jacket Tux
For a bold statement piece, consider a charcoal grey tuxedo with a pattern. Wear a standard white dress shirt and a black silk tie. But choose black patent leather shoes to maintain the classic formalwear vibe. This sleek and sophisticated look exudes confidence and a fashion-forward vibe.
However, there may be better options for those just dipping their toes into the world of tuxedos and black-tie events. With its bold and modern design, this outfit is better suited for those confident in their fashion choices and eager to make a statement on any formal occasion.
Destination Wedding with an Ivory Tux
Try a white or ivory tuxedo if you’re attending a wedding, especially if it is daytime or you’re the groom. This jacket screams a relaxed sophistication and channels James Bond and Bogart vibes – it’s perfect for year-round wear.
Add classic black tuxedo trousers with an ivory dinner jacket and a fly-front shirt. Choose a satin bow tie in a complementary color and pair it with black patent Belgian slippers.
Things to Consider When Wearing a Tuxedo
Formal occasions such as galas, award ceremonies, and opera or theatre performances are where a suit simply won’t cut it. The unmatched formality and elegance of a proper tuxedo demand a level of attention to detail that cannot be overlooked.
To avoid any mishaps or fashion faux pas, it’s advised to follow these simple guidelines and ensure that every detail is executed to perfection.
Ensure a Proper Tuxedo Fit
A well-fitted tuxedo can make all the difference in your appearance. A slim-fitting tuxedo with a tailored waist and narrow lapels can create a sleek and modern look.
At the same time, a more relaxed fit can provide a comfortable yet sophisticated look. Whatever style you choose, make sure it flatters your body type and fits perfectly.
Play Around with Textures and Fabrics
A velvet or satin lapel can add dimension to your tuxedo jacket and create a luxurious feel. Velvet, along with silk, is also one of the most used fabrics for tuxedo jackets. Most luxurious tuxedo pants, however, are made of wool and silk.
Additionally, a textured shirt or bowtie can provide visual interest and depth to your outfit. Experiment with different textures and fabrics to find what works best for you.
Another way to add some flair of luxury to your tuxedo is through accessories. A pocket square or boutonniere are easy ways to add a pop of color or pattern to your outfit. Also, cufflinks or a watch can add some sparkle and sophistication. Finally, don’t forget about the shoes.
A well-polished pair of dress shoes is inevitable to complete your tuxedo look. Consider a patent leather or velvet slipper for a more formal look or a classic oxford for a more traditional option.
