FORMAL/BLACK TIE/BLACK TIE OPTIONAL

The most fancy of all dress codes, you’d fit in perfectly with a tuxedo and full-length gown. This dress code is personally in favourite.

For HIM

Don a tux with the full works – from vest, cummerbund to cufflinks. For Black Tie Optional, a black suit, white shirt and subdued tie should complete the look.

Tip: Don’t limit yourself to wearing a black tie for a Black Tie event. Experiment with a matching colour tie and cummerbund with your black tux.
