When a black tie event, such as a formal wedding or charity gala, is approaching,
choosing the right type of formal wear is essential. There are many designer
dress rentals that come in full-length, short cocktail, and separates
that are all acceptable forms of dress. Continue reading to learn more
about dressing for a black tie event.
The most common way for a woman to
dress for a black tie event is with a full-length, formal gown. This gown can be any color and any
style that is flattering to the woman’s figure. It should be a formal
gown, however, that would match the tone of the event.
Fancy Cocktail Dress
If a full-length gown is not available or not preferable, then consider
a short cocktail dress. Wearing a shorter, yet fancy dress has grown in
popularity and acceptance at formal, black tie events. A short cocktail
dress should not be light in color, because this can make the dress appear
too casual. Instead, choose a rich color such as black or jewel tones
like sapphire, garnet, or emerald.
Pairing separates—such as a soft blouse and flowing skirt—is
another option for black tie events. Though this outfit should be considered
a last option, it can look as formal as a full-length gown or short cocktail
dress. Wear a silk blouse with a full skirt in complementary or matching
colors and styles.
In addition to the right gown or outfit, jewelry should be taken into
consideration. Pairing the right style of jewelry with the gown can make
or break the entire ensemble. For example, a high-necked dress should
not be worn with a necklace, but it can be styled with a diamond bracelet
and stud earrings.
