How to Dress for a Cocktail Party - Men Cocktail parties give you a chance to mingle among friends, acquaintances, and current and potential business associates. Look sharp and dress appropriately for the occasion. Steps: 1. Consider the type of invitation. If it came by phone or e-mail, chances are the party is casual. If you received a formal invitation, and especially if the event benefits a charity or association, consider it a dressier affair. 2. Think about the season. Wear lighter-weight fabrics and brighter colors for spring and summer get-togethers. Stick to dark, muted tones in heavier fabrics for fall and winter gatherings. 3. Dress up casual business attire for a more formal after-work cocktail party. Add a blazer to khaki pants and a button-down shirt, or pair a sport coat with black jeans and a black mock turtleneck. Switch sandals or athletic shoes for dark leather loafers or lace-up shoes. 4. Treat cocktail parties on weekend afternoons less formally than those scheduled in the evening. Go dressy business casual for a more formal late-afternoon gathering; opt for a suit in the evening. For a less formal event, wear a nice casual outfit in the afternoon and dressier business casual clothes in the evening. Tips: Athletic socks and shoes are inappropriate for a cocktail party. Shorts are also not advisable even on summer afternoons. Opt for lightweight pants in cotton or linen instead. Check a formal invitation for terms like 'semiformal' or 'black-tie optional.' If you see these indications, a suit and tie is your best option. Coordinate your outfit with your date's. Tips from eHow Users: Can't Go Wrong with Khaki by Gary T. Khaki slacks for men are a great foundation for any casual or dressy-casual social event. Inexpensive cotton khakis in wrinkle-free fabrics always look great, whether paired with an oxford shirt and dark blazer in the winter or fall or with a short sleeved polo in warmer weather.
