Formals, the word may sound a little too serious in the world of fashion, but if done right, the result can eccentric. Formal dressing for men is usually restricted for certain occasions.

 So if you have to do it, then why not do it right. Formal attire for men has many options in the market. Don’t just settle; choose the right one! Here are 10 smart formal dress ideas for men.

Shirts + Trousers + Tie:


Or what can be called an all-rounder in the world of formals. This classic look can be sported in any occasion and works well everywhere, every time. During work, after work, or even a weekend party, just remove the tie, and get ready to take the floor.

The outfit fits best when accompanied by a sleek black belt with shoes of the same colour. The best formal dressing works with the season, and hence cotton is the most natural and the best choice to go for

Jacket +Shirt + Trousers:


A great choice for a job pertaining to the top managerial level or something that requires constant meetings.

To get the most out of it, go for a darker shade of jackets with a lighter shade of shirt.

 To complete the look pair it with formal belt and loafers. This makes the outfit comfortable and gives a great look in your professional endeavours.

 Checks + Denims:


Checks are the primary form of formals. And pair it with denim, and you got yourself the perfect semi-formal wear for men. These are one of those loopholes in formal wear that lets you get away from the books and have a change of routine.

 The pairing for this combo ranges from a leather watch, a bracelet, a belt of a darker shade, and your choice of shoe. Keep the attire light and free, and don’t compromise on comfort for tight shirts and denim.

Shirt + Chinos:


Chinos are a great summer choice paired with the right kind of shirt. An evergreen and a reliable option that can save the day whenever you are in a fix about what to wear for a certain occasion.

For more indoor wear, this option can be paired with blazers, jackets and waistcoats. This formal dressing option allows you to be diverse and pair your favourite shoes to go with it.

Overcoat + T Shirt + Trousers:


Summers go, work doesn’t. This is where overcoats and t-shirts come into the picture. What works really well to make them warm and comfortable is the fabric and the texture of the different layers of clothing. Pair them well, and you got yourself the perfect winter formal attire.

 Darker shades like black and grey work really well in this case, and the colour combination is a major factor for the pairing to work. Matching scarf and sneakers are possible additions with this outfit.
