If you are invited to a black-tie ball or wedding then you have no option but to get online or walk into a store and buy or rent a tuxedo {unless you already happen to own one}. There are a number of different types of tuxedo and this guide will help to refine your choice and make it easier to pick the right one.

The most popular style at the moment is the two button, Single Breasted Tux. The jacket has a notch lapel and like all authentic tuxedos this is made from satin. For a more contemporary take on this classic style there is always the peaked lapel one button tuxedo. This tends to have a slimmer,more fitted appearance and does not really suit a broader shaped person. This one button peaked lapel tuxedo is really derived from the double breasted coat. The double breasted jacket folds across from right to left and is definitely recommended for the larger man.

Currently the double breasted jacket is not in vogue but if worn correctly there is a timeless elegance about it. The next distinct style of tuxedo is the shawl collar. As the name suggests the lapel goes right around the front of the jacket in the shape of an oval. Also known as a smoking jacket this tuxedo is again suited to the broader man and if worn properly it can be very effective. A final thing to bear in mind is that all tuxedo jackets should come with satin lapels on the jacket and a satin braid on the trousers

What short hair style is suitable for a black tie event?

Hi everyone,
I was just wondering if any one had any idea for shart hair style suitable for a black tie event?
I don’t know if this info will help anyone to help me but I’ll give it to you anyway:
I’m 5’8″ tall with short dark brown and red hair (when I say short I mean short as in could wear it spikey on the back, slightly longer on top with a one sided fringe) and the dress I will be wearing is a full length silver skirt with a slight train and matching “corset” with beads on it.
Hope someone can help me I’m really stuck for ideas.
Thanks in advance.
I forgot to mention also that I have a small tiara to wear, its just a simple silver band with a dragonfly on top slightly to one side.

Be yourself – since your hair is short have/style it the way you normally do.

Sounds fine to me.
