When it’s time to attend a cocktail party, too many men are happy to reach for their best suit that they’ve just purchased from the best metro Milwaukee mens formalwear store. But while that may be a great suit, it might not be the best option for that cocktail party.

Typically cocktail parties are much more casual than formal events, and the attire for them reflects that. Whereas wedding tuxedos Southern Wisconsin might be good for just that – weddings – it will stand out like a sore thumb at most cocktail events. Instead, finding a mens suit Milwaukee might be a better option; but sometimes even this is an overdressed option.

If you have a really nice suit that you’d like to show off, you can still wear it but leave the jacket at home (or at least in the car.) Sometimes even suit jackets are too formal for cocktail events, and you might find that with all the mingling that occurs, they’re also too uncomfortable.

Typical dress for a cocktail party is usually khakis, or nice dress pants, paired with a nice dress shirt. Whether that’s long-sleeved, short-sleeved, or a Polo shirt is up to you. But it really should be somewhat more casual than what you’d wear to a business meeting or a more formal event.
