When I wear a suit (quite often), I like to consider the suit, the tie, and the shirt as 2 + 1.
Example: Safe suit color/design + safe shirt + colorful tie. Or, in the alternative, a safe suit + colorful shirt + a safe tie
/safe suit being the norm, because who wants a crazy suit that you can only wear once?
//safe being neutral colors and patterns
I've also found that I can wear a vest/3piece suit if everything is otherwise "safe". That said, the vest makes it sharp, and people notice for the better.
What thoughts do yall have about safely standing out?
