Black & White: Dapper After 5 Sophistication

Nothing is more elegant than a black suit or tuxedo with a crisp white shirt. And now, there are a lot of great ways to incorporate this color combination into your after 5 look, so you can look that sophisticated, even when you’re just going out for dinner. When you combine black with pops of white, you’ll easily be wearing these pieces as the weather changes– just layer or pair them up differently. See what we mean below.
Check back tomorrow to see some of our favorite ways to incorporate black and white into our casual wardrobes.

This white and black graph check from Robert Graham is an ideal after 5 shirt. Dress it up with dark black jeans or take a more casual approach with a faded wash. Robert Graham always does striking prints, and this shirt does not disappoint. But we like how the black and white color combination keeps it stylishly subtle. Always remember, you can cuff up the sleeve on any Robert Graham to show off a unique print inside.

From AG Jeans, these jeans work so well with the shirt, offsetting the crisp look of the shirt with a soft fade in the black wash of these jeans. The Graduate model is a modern fit with a narrow leg. You can see how you can dress them up, but you can easily re-purpose them with a more casual sport shirt or even a thermal for an easier look.

This cotton black and white stripe sweater from Theory is a versatile option for a night out. Dress it up with a white shirt and jet-black jeans or dress it down with a white t-shirt. You’ll get plenty of use out of it. It's a contemporary style, but not fitted, so it looks great on most gents.

This sleek, trim fitting white shirt from Theory is a nice way to dress up the sweater. Tip: Keep the foldover collar nice and stiff – you don’t want the collar to have a wide spread over the neckline of the sweater.

These straight leg Joe’s Jeans are made of a really cool denim, perfect for a night out. They are soft and comfortable, but have the look of a stiffer black fabric, thanks to the evolved technology Joe’s uses to create some of the best denim fabrics out there. These will dress up this shirt and sweater, no problem. And you’ll have plenty of more opportunities to wear them throughout the season.

If you take the more casual approach, a dark denim pair of jeans will look great with this black and white sweater, especially since it has a touch of blue in the striping. This classic from J Brand has some nice stretch to it, and a more universal fit with its straight leg.

Oh, how we love this classic black and white glen plaid silk bow tie from Carrot & Gibbs. Bow ties are more popular than ever, so have some fun with this one. Wear it with your tux, obviously. But you can also wear it with a white shirt and black cardigan or quarter zip neck sweater for a little pizzazz.

A black and white glen plaid bow tie adds a pop to this peak lapel tuxedo from Hugo Boss. This is a great investment, a classic –yet modern – style that you’ll have for years to come. We always advise owning your own tuxedo – a rental just doesn’t do, when it’s no longer prom season.
