    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

    It's a no no. Don't do it.

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