It’s a thing that men’s dress code has changed, that casual clothing is increasingly taking the upper hand and that sportswear has become a must for men’s fashion. But in this new world of relaxation there is a pillar that does not disappear: a formal man dress.
It has grown as much as it has forgotten over the years, but it has never completely disappeared. After all, although fashion can be casual, there are still times when you have to wear a formal dress – weddings, parties, interviews.
That’s why the Black Friday Weekend by ASOS could be the right occasione to buy a formal man dress. Thanks to its offers you can take advantage of a 20% discount on any product between Thursday 22nd and Monday 26th November: just use the code HELLO20
The evolution of formal man dress
Until a few years ago, the “formal equation” was simple: dress, shirt, tie, elegant shoes … done! In this new era, however, this look has become very little imaginative and excessively compliant with a meeting of a board of directors. The formal attire has therefore taken a step forward and the dress is no longer treated with the classic business attitude.
For example, the slim fit, which has dominated traditional clothes in the last ten years, is gradually disappearing. In fact, a dress should be flattering, so with wider cuts it can complete the shape of your body instead of limiting it.
Some tips for a modern formal dress
A dress should not have a heavy structure. That’s why a deconstructed jacket offers a much more comfortable end product that will not make you feel like you need to stand at attention when you wear it. It will also make the dress really versatile: it will be comfortable, easy to wear and all you need is a thin knit tie and a white shirt for the perfect work look, preferably in cotton jersey. In fact, the jersey shirts have a slight elasticity, which means more freedom of movement and comfort without neglecting formality.
How to complete your formal look
And at your feet? Do not necessarily choose a leather sole: the rubber soles, for example, are ideal for everyday work shoes and, since they are usually heavier, they also match the wardrobe for the weekend.
Finally, to complete your formal look, try an oversize coat. Not only will it show your way of dressing and your ability to play with the proportions, but it will make sure that your dress fits underneath and will be infinitely more comfortable than a fitted jacket.
