Seersucker suit, flannel shirt, striped tie, white shoes, polka dot handkerchief.

Technically it's "business casual", but wearing a seersucker suit sounds boss. A little cold for seersucker though?

I'm on the verge of tears by the time I log onto Wall Street Oasis, since I'm positive that a user has thrown monkey shit at me. But they haven't, and relief washes over me in an awesome wave.

I would be skeptical of any firm that puts hip cocktail attire on their sell invite. Probably just a slightly unhip HR lady but still.
Jeans and a button down. Hip means the jean can be skinny and button down plaid.

"hip cocktail" lord. thats a new one for me. I would wear a pair of dark, non-distressed jeans with a jacket and a button-down or just a suit with no tie. The whole thing is fucking idiotic though...a definite pet peeve of mine is ridiculous attire categories on invites.

ok now a serious answer: use google.

ok now a really serious answer: wear blue or charcoal, a dark suit with a white shirt and dark tie is plenty formal. also, you shouldn't have a 3 button suit unless you're over 6 feet tall or want to look like steve harvey.

it's a cocktail reception, not the Oscars. chill out bronah hill

I think I need that for my company party

You mostly answered your own question. I'd also talk to anyone else you know who is going to determine whether a black tie or conservative work tie would be more appropriate. Other than that there's no real ambiguity.

Everyone else gave good advice but on the side: Trade out those 3 buttons for double breasted with pinstripes, your MD won't stop complementing you.

Call me ridiculous, but I actually like the look of double breasted suits. I agree, though, they aren't very appropriate for many settings.

OP, I would just wear the charcoal suit/white shirt/dark tie. That's the safest combo, imo.
