What makes a 
tux different from a regular suit?

One word: satin. Touches of this sleek fabric on the lapel, pockets, pants and buttons make a tuxedo the go-to suit for weddings and other formal occasions. Also, it should be paired with a pleated-front tuxedo shirt, rather than your regular button-up.

How should I
accessorize my
tuxedo?

With a big smile — you’re getting married! But seriously, you’re going to need some sleek tuxedo accessories: cuff links, dress shoes and a neck tie or bow tie. While the tie should match your color scheme and the shoes should be formal oxfords, you can always get a little creative with cuff links. Feel free to sport a little color, your monogram or a cool design.

Are there any 
ways to put a twist
on the traditional
tuxedo?

Of course! Take note from a few of Hollywood’s top glitterati and ditch the all black tux for a cool, blue style. The fashion adventurous can even experiment with patterns like plaid or materials like velvet.

Will I ever wear
the tux again?

Yes, and again and again! You’ll have a go-to suit for any future black tie events like family and friends’ weddings or galas. Plus, you can always pair the jacket with jeans for a cool and casual look.
