I am traveling, and just found out I have to go to a black and white party. I have with me only a suit, no formawear. It is a navy Dolce and Gabana with white chalk stripes. It's plenty dark. Here is the real question: I have a white shirt, do I wear a tie? I can either wear the maroon or gold tie I brought, or just go with open collar and first button. I am 22, and the event is geared towards students. Unfortunately, as I said, I am traveling, and have no access to a tux. Which will look less out of place? Also, to go without a tie, I have no problem with the "too cool for school" look, and usually pull it off pretty well, I'm just wondering if that is going wayyyy too far here.
