Black suit with a colorful bowtie?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey Hey,

 

so I am going to a work party (formal dinner) and I'd like to wear a black suit with a light colored shirt (white, light blue, light grey)

 

But I;d like to wear a bowtie.. is this a no no?

 

i tried goolging black suits with bowties but usually it's the Super Formal of Black, white and Black bowtie..

 

i know the rule of thumb for a black suit is to wear a light shirt and a bit brighter necktie, but i am not sure if the same rule applies for a bowtie..

 

i have a bowtie at home that is blue and yellow stripped... would that be a fashion disaster?

 

i attached a photoshop of how it would look

Evening event. The darker and shinier the tie, the better. Got a dark blue or black satin tie? Wear it.
