The tuxedo shirt serves as a blank canvas for the tie to shine. A well-chosen tuxedo shirt reflects your personal style and can complement the event’s theme.

It’s the unsung hero in any formal ensemble. If you like your night outfits to appear understated instead of overdone, then you should invest in a stylish tuxedo shirt to pull off the look.

Effortlessly cool with a borrowed-from-boys feel, a tuxedo shirt truly is the perfect solution for those tricky, tea-table-gal-style situations where you really don’t want to draw too much attention to yourself.

The classic tuxedo dress has always been known for its bow tie, so if you’re planning to wear one this season, make sure you don’t skimp on the detail. Look for fabrics like chenille, silk, velvet or satin; try to find ones that match well with your current wardrobe.

The traditional tuxedo shirt is also back in fashion. If you love the look but don’t want the shirt ending up in the trash can, go with some riderless or tapered trouser fronts instead. In both short and long lengths, broadcloth tuxedo shirts have a slightly more formal but still comfortable look.

They work great with black trousers or chinos and can easily be dressed down with a button-down shirt and dark trousers for a less formal look.

Tuxedo shirt styles have also picked up a few new twists. The classic button-up placket still looks good, but try using a double-breasted placket for something a little edgier.

Also, consider how you will wear your bow ties or cummerbunds. Some people opt not to wear these accessories instead of opting for a classic three-button or double-breasted placket.

As always, your footwear will also play a huge role in your new formal wear.

The traditional tuxedo shirt is still a good choice, but you might want to try the new silk, linen, or crepe shirt styles. Silk and crepe have a luxurious look that some people are wearing with their tuxedos. Linen has a sleek appearance that some are dressed down for.

Formal occasions such as the dinner, jacket or black tie bow tie are great for more formal occasions. When paired with your dinner jacket, the look is completed. Other options include the classic, wingtip, or non-wing tip.

The non-wing tip bow tie is less formal than a wingtip and works very well for less formal occasions. Plus, it is the perfect choice for a night in the town.
