    Flourishes for all black outfits

    Hi guys,

    I'm rocking the black oxford shirt, black jeans combo for my 30th (yikes) party this weekend. I've always liked the black and black look since getting in to Interpol many moons ago.

    I'd liken to liven it up with a flourish and wondered if anyone had any good suggestions (such as a pocket square etc).

    Cheers folks

    Some coloured socks on show would be good... Dunno how you'd work a pocket square into that without a jacket. A tie / bow tie could be an option though?

    Maybe get a coloured top button for the shirt that matches the socks? And button it up to the top?

    nice grey woven belt would shake things up a bit ..... (and also help you not looking like a Nazgul by dividing your upper and lower section)




    I would also consider mixing black and brown (I know shocking right?) because it is something different and unexpected, but can look really well if you nail it ..... (like this, for example)

    Ace tips. Cheers guys.

    On the pocket square, I've seen a few people wear it in their shirt pocket which can look cool if it's the right pocket square (interesting pattern kinda thing).

    What shoes are you wearing? Something in burgundy could complement an all black outfit.

    Something I've always thought looked quite good for all black (imo) is a short sleeved shirt, waistcoat, jeans, and boots. A little mix of rock and roll and formal but I think it works quite well.
