Hi, I'm Amanda Perna from, and today I'm going to tell you how men should dress when women are wearing a cocktail dress. The big thing is to figure out where you're going. Because if you're going to a black tie affair, then it's very important that men are wearing a black suit and a black tie. However, if you're going to a different kind of event such as a more casual wedding or any other kind of event where a woman would be wearing a cocktail dress, the main thing that you would want to do is wear a suit. So you're going to find a suit that fits you very well and find a tie that you enjoy because this is how you get to accessorize. So, you're going to want to find a tie that really speaks to you. So, if you're going to a more fun or exciting event, you're going to want to wear something with a little bit a pop of color. Something a little bit vibrant and fund and not just a plain old striped tie. The other thing, is if you think you may be taking off your jacket, which in times you will. Say you're dancing or doing something where you are kind of hot and you don't want to wear your jacket, a lot of times it is appropriate. In which case, you want to make sure that you have a nicely pressed shirt because no one wants to see wrinkles in the back or the front of a shirt. So you want to make sure you're always pressed. Your shoes are nicely cleaned and polished and you're just have thought out your outfit from top to bottom. My name's Amanda Perna. Thanks for watching.
