Black tie is the most common formal dress code. Here is what you are going to need if you are invited to a black-tie event. First of all, you will need to wear a full tuxedo suit, since wearing a regular suit is not acceptable in this case. The tuxedo suit with the tie you pick should be either black or midnight blue, with a single button. Underneath your tux, it is best to wear a white dress shirt with a black bow tie. If possible, avoid pre-tied bow ties, as the difference between pre-tied and self-tied is noticeable.
Creative Black Tie
Although the name can be a bit misleading, a creative black tie is essentially very similar to a black tie, with just a bit of room for creativeness. A black or midnight blue tuxedo is still a must, along with all other elements of the black tie dress code. The difference lies in small detail. Creative black tie calls for adding one more color to your black and white look. You still want to look formal, so your best bet is to do this subtly, either with a vest or cummerbund, and choose a color that will blend nicely with the rest of your attire.
Black Tie Optional
Black tie optional is the least formal attire of all black ties. While a tuxedo is not mandatory at such events, it is still preferred, and you definitely want to wear one if possible. However, you don't need to stick to black tie requirements as strictly. Going with a dark-colored tuxedo, a dress shirt, and a matching bow tie is just as acceptable as full black tie attire. Finally, suppose you are looking for some more creative options that do not necessarily fit into formal dress codes but are still classy to wear.
