What to Wear


There are less rules with a cocktail dress code, giving you the ability to inject a little more personality and creativity into your outfit. Match a blazer with complementary trousers or stick with a two piece suit. You can opt for a comfortable loafer over a more formal footwear style, even ditch the tie for a more laid back look.

As long as you look dapper, with sartorial detail, you meet the cocktail brief.

Five tips for cocktail party styling


Take into account the theme or dress code specified for the cocktail party. While cocktail attire typically calls for a formal yet stylish look, some events may have specific themes or requirements. Adapt your outfit accordingly, incorporating elements that align with the theme while maintaining a polished appearance.


Choose a well-tailored suit or a smart blazer paired with trousers for a classic cocktail party look. Stick to neutral colors like navy, charcoal, or black for a sophisticated appearance, or experiment with subtle patterns for added flair.

Choose a quality dress shirt

Pair your suit or blazer with a crisp, high-quality dress shirt in a complementary color. White or light blue shirts are timeless options that pair well with most suit colors. Ensure the shirt fits well and is neatly pressed for a polished look.

Accessorise Appropriately

Elevate your outfit with carefully chosen accessories. Choose classic leather dress shoes in black or brown and match them with a coordinating belt. Keep accessories minimal and tasteful to avoid overpowering the outfit.

Mind the Details

Attention to detail is key when dressing for a cocktail party. Ensure your attire is well-groomed by trimming any stray hairs, polishing your shoes, and ironing out any wrinkles. Small details like cufflinks or a watch can make a big difference in your overall look.
