Patterns are great, but they can be too much of a good thing.

When wearing a blazer or suit, your top and lower halves must be in proportion. Hence, long pants are a must.

Vests should only be worn as part of a three-piece suit ensemble. Anything less and it looks like you’re missing something.

They are both worn for the same reason. Belts will wear less on your pants.

Bright colors don’t go in the winter season when the sky is gray and the days are short. Tone down your wardrobe accordingly.

If it’s black tie, wear black tie. Formal wear means to wear a suit. Dress according to the specifications. Otherwise you’ll look misplaced, and everyone will notice.
