If you’re looking for a more subtle way to stand out from the crowd, adding a pair of eccentric socks is the way to go! With so many different patterns and styles to choose from, there’s sure to be something for everyone. It’s still debatable if it’s “acceptable” to add statement socks to your tuxedo, so proceed with caution if you choose this route!

3. Brave the Beard

To beard or not to beard, that is the question! Sporting facial hair at formal events is becoming more of a statement than a style choice. This comes down to more of a personal choice, but if you do choose to rock a mustache or beard to your event, be sure that it’s neatly groomed. If you’re having trouble taming the beast, though, you may want to consider forgoing this fashion choice.

4. Tie Trends

Why not try adding personality to your suit with something as simple as a unique neck or bow tie? 2018 brought back the revival of the skinny tie, which you can get in a variety of patterns and colours. Or why not do something totally different and add a wood bow tie to your ensemble? There are lots of companies who are making these trendy ties using locally sourced wood and some serious skills.

5. Fancy Footwear

When it comes to footwear, there’s no real rules about what you can wear (although we advise against running shoes!). We’re seeing an increase in dress slippers being worn from fashion shows to celebrities attending awards shows. Most commonly seen are velvet slippers, which can be a solid colour or customizes with your initials if you want to feel extra fancy.
