The light blue shirt is a nice, neutral color that won’t overpower the other colors in the room, while the white chinos add a bit of sophistication to the look. 

And the brown dress shoes add a touch of style while still being appropriate for the occasion. 

2. White Linen Shirt With Navy Blazer & Khaki Dress Pants 

White linen shirts provide a crisp, clean look that is perfect for a formal event. 

The navy blazer adds a touch of sophistication and style, while the khaki dress pants provide a nice contrast to the other two pieces.

The result is a sharp, modern look that will help you stand out. 

Not only does this outfit look great, but it is also versatile. It works equally well with a tie and dress shoes as with a pair of loafers and no tie.

3. Grey Blazer With White V-Neck Shirt & Black Dress Pants 

The blazer provides a formal look appropriate for the party’s dress code, and the white v-neck shirt gives the outfit a nice contrast, making the blazer [2] stand out. 

The black dress pants complete the look and add a touch of sophistication. Add a sharp pair of shoes and a matching tie to accentuate your look instantly. 

As an extra touch of style, the gentleman can accessorize the outfit with a pocket square and some cufflinks. 

Then, a pocket square will add a splash of color to the ensemble and help frame the blazer. Gentlemen can also opt for a nice belt and a watch to finish the look.

4. Patterned Short Sleeve Shirt With Beige Chinos & Brown Loafers 

A patterned short sleeve shirt adds a touch of visual interest to the look, while the beige chinos will keep the look light and fresh. 

The shirt, its lightweight material, will keep the guys cool if the event is held in summer, and the chinos will keep them looking sharp. 

As for the brown loafers, it provides support and stability for dancing the night away. Check out these outfit ideas for guys to wear to a homecoming here.

5. Dark Blue Button-Down Shirt With Dark Jeans & Brown Brogues 

The button-down shirt is a classic go-to piece. Its dark blue color will look great against dark jeans and create a look that won’t be too overdressed for the occasion. 

Adding a watch or pocket square as an accessory will elevate the look to the next level. 

Besides, dark jeans and brown brogues can be dressed up with a belt and dress socks or dressed down with a casual belt and no-show socks. 

This ensemble will keep you looking stylish while allowing you to feel comfortable and confident throughout the celebration. 

6. White Long Sleeve Shirt With Tan Chinos & Brown Oxfords 

The tan chinos are perfect to pair with the white shirt, providing a subtle contrast that won’t be too over the top. 

Adding up a pair of cufflinks, a pocket square, and a nice watch are all great options for adding a bit of extra flair to the outfit. 

A good belt is also necessary to complete the look, as the tan chinos will need to be kept from slipping down. 

You can put shades on, adding to the modern twist of the outfit. Don’t forget to pair it with brown oxfords, whose dark hue adds a touch of formality.

7. Navy Blazer With White Shirt & Grey Dress Pants 

The white shirt complements the navy blazer and brings the ensemble a crisp, clean look. 

The gray dress pants add a subtle yet stylish touch to the overall look, and the colors of the navy blazer and gray pants create an appealing contrast. 

Plus, you can add a patterned pocket square or lapel pin that can add a unique touch to the navy blazer, while a stylish tie can give the outfit a more formal feel. 

8. Patterned Short Sleeve Shirt With Khaki Shorts & Tan Boat Shoes

A patterned short sleeve shirt can be eye-catching and unique while still being appropriate for the occasion. 

The shirt is lightweight and breathable, allowing the wearer to stay cool and comfortable in the summer heat.
