Formal events are gatherings that allow every attendee to occasionally present themselves as prim and proper. These events like cocktails are meant exclusively for social and business networking and have become a global trend since their origination in London in 1917.
Several years down the line, wedding receptions, gala and many more have become formal.
With the excitement and food comes the outfit. The usual is the tuxedo suit and tie, however, these are African alternatives you can wear if you are tired of the usual.
