A black tie event (and the dress code it endures) leaves little to the imagination when putting an outfit together. Cause, black tie’s beauty is in the ‘simple’: a black tux with matching bow tie and shoes, and then there’s that sharp-collared, crisp white shirt; making up the monochrome magic for a dapper look at your next dinner party or formal event.

But, in today’s bend-the-rules world, your accessories get to take on a bold creative licence, as they inject charm into a boring dinner jacket or patent leather Oxford. And, while less is certainly still more in the style department, here are ten essential accessories for your next black tie event.
And, each are a step up from your average leather dress shoes, stuffy cufflinks or posh pocket square.

Oh, and there’s a giant beaded bee that looks to have swallowed your typical flower lapel pin, whole.
