Deciphering the Dress Code on Your Party Invitation

Getting a party invitation is exciting—until you see the dress code and start to wonder what to wear. No one likes going to an event and finding out that they’ve made the wrong choice with their attire, but we’re here to help. Once you get a grip on the dress code for your event, use the Lending Luxury site to find cocktail dresses, couture gowns, or whatever type of dress rental you need, at a price that won’t break your budget. Here is what you need to know about dress codes you may see on party invitations.

Cocktail attire is one of the trickier dress codes for women to decipher, because it can mean different things to different people. Typically, cocktail dresses are shorter than formal dresses, and can range from short to midi. Cocktail occasions are perfect for the classic LBD, but there is also plenty of leeway to show your personality in your attire. Sometimes, the season or occasion will influence your choice of cocktail dress. For instance, you may pick a dress in a metallic shade for a holiday cocktail party or a sleeveless A-line for a summer event. Heels or dressy flats can work for cocktail attire.

Formal attire—or black tie, as it is sometimes called—traditionally calls for a long dress, though now on occasion, it is not unheard of to see someone dressed in a very formal shorter gown. Men are called on to wear tuxedos to black tie events, so your dress should be similarly formal. This is a great opportunity to wear a couture gown. Heels are generally a must.

White Tie
White tie is the most formal dress code. Short dresses are not a fit for a white tie event. Instead, women should wear long dresses and long gloves—usually white—that reach their elbows. Couture gowns, your best jewelry, and heels are all appropriate for white tie events.

Lending Luxury makes it easy to find the perfect dress rental for any occasion, from debutante dresses to cocktail dress in Tampa, FL. Learn more about our selection and how to start renting high-fashion dresses by calling (800) 403-9848.

Getting the Right Look for a Holiday Cocktail Party

If you have one or more holiday cocktail parties on your calendar, how do you get the look right? With Lending Luxury, you don’t have to worry about repeating dresses or skimping on the look you want, since our affordable dress rental service puts an enormous selection of cocktail dresses at your fingertips. As you pull together your holiday party attire,
keep these tips in mind.

Know the Lingo
If your party invitation says cocktail attire, you may be scratching your head, trying to understand what that means. Even seasoned fashionistas often struggle to understand what cocktail attire means, since people often define it in different ways. If you’re going to a cocktail party, know that it doesn’t mean jeans and a t-shirt or your everyday work skirt, but it is also less dramatic than dressing for a formal gala. For a cocktail party, skew your dress to the situation and environment. For instance, you may choose a dress that is more conservative for your office holiday cocktail party than you would for your best friend’s soiree.

Think Simplicity
Simplicity can hit the right note for holiday cocktail parties. Choose a dress that isn’t extremely short or long, and focus on understated elegance. This look can be dressed up or down to suit nearly any party host’s definition of cocktail attire. Accessorize to turn your style up a notch on your classic, simple cocktail dress.

Play with Color
The LBD is an obvious choice for cocktail dresses, and while you can hardly go wrong with black, play with color during the festive season. Metallic colors are great for holiday cocktail parties, and siren red or jewel-toned greens can also look perfect. If your dream dress is black, add some seasonal touches with your accessories.
