Now Trending: Tuxedo 2.0

No collar, no tie, no problem — here’s how to shake up nighttime chic



It’s time for guys to disrupt the usual eveningwear ensemble. No longer is it necessary to follow the same black-tie rules that have been in place for ages. Break with tradition — leave the tie at home, forget the white shirt with tail and make a statement with your shoes. Look to Alexander McQueen and Fendi for a little embellishment, to Dior for a modern take on a tailcoat and to NO 21 for a boot worth shouting out.
