Creative Black Tie Inspiration

 Do you ever get the fear when dressing for black tie? You're really wanting to mix it up and go against the rules. Maybe a tartan suit, red bow-tie or a patterned shirt. But you suddenly think that this very bad and against the rules of black tie. You start to think that you’ll be asked to leave for being such a traditional rule breaker. 

But in reality, these traditional black tie rules can very much be broken in the modern day. Since we’re at the start of the party season, we started to think of this topic and took this picture in Italy. This is a very daring outfit but it certainly lends itself to a modern and stylish reinterpretation of black tie wear. The tartan is smart and great for winter while the gold provides a luxury edge. The velvet waistcoat gives a dandyish finish and the playful silver bow tie lapel pin will bring a smile to whoever sees it.
