The Formal Wear suits

One of the things noticed on the red carpet is the lack of wearing attire appropriately. Loose ties, ill-fitting tuxedos, unbuttoned collars and a generally unkempt appearance are prime examples of what not to do when sporting formal wear.

If you are going to the trouble of getting all dressed up in formal collection, comb your hair, shave, tighten the tie and look amazing. If you look elegant, you willl feel elegant and have a much better time at your formal occasion.

Dress shirts should be either white or black. Crisp, smooth lines with pleats or without are the VIP style. Choose point or cut away collars. Using silk in the shirt choice is a great way to add a bit more sparkle to your outfit. Roberto Cavalla used silk frequently in his collection. Avoid ruffles this season. Keep the shirt simple and elegant.

Best option for formal wear is a sharp, tailored look. If you choose to pair the vest with your pants, choose the same color and fabric. If you match it with the jacket, use the same color but you may use different fabrics. Silk, brocade and velvet were featured often and look cheerfully elegant.
Pants are black or grey using velvet or brocade. Piping in silk portrays a young, sexy image. Ensure a perfectly tailored look for your attire. Do not go with a too tight or too baggy look. Flat front with front seam down the leg was widely seen. Belts with ornate buckles give the pants a bit of personality.

As with most clothing trends this season, formal wear is designed predominantly in dark colors. Black is the most prevalent with charcoal grey coming in a close second. We see some colorful accents but mostly black on black, black on white and charcoal and black combination are seen. Silk, velvet and brocade are the fabrics used most often to give some luster to the clothes and lend a sultry appeal.

Whatever options suits your style, show some personality by opting for the use of today’s fabrics. Although the trend is black, the use of accessories and fabrics give it just enough drama to be fun. A neat, clean, tailored look is what you should always aim for in formal wear. Show up at your next black tie event sporting the latest in formal fashions to get the red carpet treatment you deserve.
