So I have a top hat
. 1) What can I pair it with for Halloween that isn't some outlandish character
*, and 2) how can I wear it on days that are not
Halloween and not look like I'm (trying to) dress way up?

I've been fond of top hats for quite a while, and about a year a go, I bought one with urging from my wife. I only wore it home from the hat shop, and since then it's collected dust. Halloween is a good time to use it, but I want it to be more than a once-a-year hat. Is it too formal, or can it be dressed down without looking like a costume piece?
* I looked for "top hat characters" and found that list, but they're mostly outlandish characters, or at least require some costume elements that I wouldn't use much beyond keeping in my (at the moment) non-existant costume trunk.
