The dress code “Cocktail” must be a dark suit . However, you should keep their hands from black, it would be overly formal. A dark blue or grey are a good choice. A tie and elegant shoes are not a mandatory requirement desired, but depending on the party company. Also at the shirt, it must be not the classical white. Light blue or Rosé are also portable. Fortunately, cocktail parties are nowadays much more relaxed than some years ago. Today, the Lords also jeans with suit jacket should combine and simply omit the ties.
