• If you want to change the classic tux look, try wearing a velvet jacket instead. Stick to similar colors, as you would with a normal tuxedo, so that it matches the formal look you're trying to achieve.

  • However, you can go "James Bond" style and go with a white tuxedo: white jacket with either white or black lapels, black pants and black bow tie. Even though this look is perhaps not as common as a regular tuxedo, it makes for a great formal dinner outfit.
