For the men, there is Evening Black Tie dress code; a semi-formal Western dress code for evening events, originating in British and American conventions for attire in the 19th century.  In British English, the dress code is often referred to synecdochically by its principal element for men, the dinner suit or dinner jacket(sometimes abbreviated to just a DJ). This dress code includes:

  • Dinner jacket
  • Trousers
  • A black low-cut waistcoat or a cummerbund.
  • A white dress, cuffs and a turndown collar.
  • A black silk bow tie matching the lapel facings
  • Shirt studs and cufflinks.
  • A black evening waistcoat or cummerbund.
  • Black dress socks, usually of silk or fine wool.
  • Black shoes, traditionally patent leather court shoes (pumps).

Music

Boujee music typically is popular music (a lot of hip-hop and R&B) that talks a lot about living the high life and enjoying the finer things in life. Some popular Boujee artists include Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Doja Cat, Megan thee stallion, etc. Despite this, some adherents to the Boujee aesthetic might also listen to Lo-Fi music to add another level of opulence to their life.
