What to wear to a black tie event

For a while now I’ve been planning to make an effort to got to more black tie events. I love the idea of swishing around ins a beautiful, long evening gown. The problem is, I don’t have one and I’ve never been to an event like this. I thought it would be a good idea to look at some of the most beautiful gowns to wear to a black tie event.

I think I need something long and elegant that will be nicely juxtaposed with my punk rock hair. One thing I’m not so sure about is the colour. I want something bright, a little rock and roll and very elegant. I’m totally drawn to that beautiful blue dress with the gorgeous shoulders.

Here are a few tips on what to wear to a black tie event:

  • For women, black tie doesn’t mean you should wear black.
  • Simple dresses are best as you can dress them up with lots of jewellery for added glitz
  • No tiaras or gloves
  • It’s always best to go long. If you can’t handle a long dress, you should be able to get away with something just below the knee.
  • If you’re feeling a little self-conscious about this sort of dress, steer clear of sequins and bold patterns.
