3 alternative ways to do formalwear

Stylish ways to stand out from the crowd.


    Three-piece jacquard suit and shirt, from Dolce & Gabbana. Silk bow tie, from Kiton. Metal cufflinks, from Ermenegildo Zegna.

    You can always count on Italian fashion powerhouse Dolce & Gabbana for unabashed opulence. This peak-lapel three-piece from its Fall/ Winter 2018 collection titled “King’s Angels” features repeating crown motifs all over the suit but balances out the busy design by keeping the palette black (albeit with a slight dressy sheen). With a suit this regal, not much else needs to be done. Just keep it simple with a black bow tie and matching dress shoes.
