How to Determine the Formalness of an Event

A number of you will be attending parties this holiday season. But how can you determine how formal the event is? In advance? Impossible. It is impossible to ever know before attending the event. Even during the party it can be difficult to tell. But here is a trick: Look at the number of ties the average male is wearing. If it is one; the event is formal.  If they have a loosened tie on the party may have been formal but the atmosphere is heading in a more casual direction. No ties indicate it was never overly formal.  If the males are wearing multiple ties that indicates something else. Probably something great.

Below is a chart to give a visual representation of this theory.

Oh, you can ask. If you aren't sure how formal an event is you can ask, do that.
