fashion question

So I wear a dark gray suit and I've got a formal this weekend with my fraternity. My girlfriend is wearing a beige and black cocktail dress. I'd like to try and match that, but I have no idea what would be a good way to pull that off with a charcoal suit. Any tie and shirt color ideas?

You should totally wear a salmon shirt with pastel green pants and sperrys brah. Gonna get wasted brah? Can't forget the croakies brah.

All jokes aside, a shirt that matches her color and a black tie/tie that matches the suit always works.

metallic pea green cumberbun, orange flip flops, and a sombrero. You can seldom go wrong with a sombrero.

Ditch the flip flops for some boat shoes

Never use the word brah again. It is so annoying when people say that.


Anyways tan tie, black shirt?

I dunno, Charcoal suit + black shirt is not a look I am liking. How about a pic of your girlfriends dress? That will help me visualize..

i agree; the sombrero is a must

bad news; if this actually is 'formal', then a grey suit doesn't even qualify. be more specific about the upcoming event

True. Only a Columbian drug dealer can pull off that look.

I don't know, the last fraternity "formal" I went to (years ago), 70% of the fellas were wearing a blue blazer and khaki pants. I think "fraternity formal" just means no jeans.

most of us just wear our suits, its not a black tie event.

The frat jokes are great by the way. Definitely not a played out stereotype that I avoid at all costs. thanks for all the help....all two or three of you that did.
