I'm attending a VIP Art Festival opening tonight and trying to figure out what to wear. Currently have on a grey cotton suit, white shirt, blue tie, and white pocket square. I imagine there will be a lot of relatively casually attired artworld types there and the invitation gives no help. I'm leaning towards ditching the shirt and tie, but wearing the same suit and going with a solid black shirt or something with a pattern.

If I do the black shirt with the grey suit, should I keep the white pocket square? I'm debating between switching to a pink one (both squares are from Kent Wang, I love them so much), or just ditching the square entirely...

Any thoughts?

Is wearing a grey suit to an evening event OK?

When it is a VIP Art Festival wear something special (a red suit)?!
