suit-869380_1920In the past cocktail attire meant a suit, you should follow that rule today! If you want to dress it down a bit based on the type of event and weather, it’s an indoor event or an outdoor event here are some tips and ideas. For outdoor cocktail attire you can mix it up by adding both color and fabrication. You can use richer textures and bolder colors and to really add some spice you can choose a state piece.  For indoor cocktail attire, a little more formal is required. Because this type of occasion tends to be more formal you should lean towards finer, smoother finishes. Use darker colors like gray, navy or black for your main pieces, jackets, trousers and footwear.
